    This is our usual birthday dinner spot. It was very loud this go around- lots of birthdays which is understandable. There were a few tables near us us that had kids that were allowed to run wild and ended up breaking glasses and such (not really Kanki’s fault). Our server was fine it was busy so had to flag her down for drink refills. The biggest disappointment was the cooking of the dinner. Our chef was apparently unwell. He barely spoke to the table and didn’t do any of the usual tricks and jokes that are usually done. He just stood there and cooked and barely interacted with us. Food was delicious as that’s rarely the issue. We could have just sat at a regular table versus the teppanyaki table and literally would have been the same. :(

    My waitress was doing too much where she wasn’t very attentive to our table of 10. We had to wait n excess my of time for drinks do to them only having one bartender, and we waited forever for refills to our non alcoholic drinks. Overall I wouldn’t return as I feel like things should have went better especially when gratuity is included in the check large parties.

    Food was good, chef was good. Service was short handed. They took dessert off the menu entirely? There were at least 6-8 birthdays at the restaurant with no options. Hard to get a drink, no option to get a second one. Bathrooms were very dirty.

    Third trip during lunch and the wait time for a cook has been unacceptable. All three trips took an hour and half plus! You sit at the table for nearly an hour before the chef arrives to cook. This past trip I noticed there were 5 tables sat and only 2 chefs between those tables. If you’re trying to go in your lunch HOUR, beware. Hopefully they’ll work through this soon as my husband says he will not be back.

    The quality of the food and level of authenticity/service have definitely declined over the years. It's a decent place to take younger kids because they like to watch the food being cooked at the table. This particular visit was not great because the vent fan was broken so all the heavy smoke from the grill was in our faces the whole time.

    The service is always awful! It takes over 20 minutes to get a drink and waitresses never check in on tables. You could do better…
