    When we arrived, we were led to the table but it had not be cleaned off since the prior party. Being seated at a table and it still has food on it from the last meal is unacceptable. We had to go to the restroom and get some towels and clean it off. Service other than that was fine except for the chef spilling some hot filet mignon on my mother's lap and then tossing a bit of chicken to my wife even she asked for him to skip her (he should have listened). Plenty of food and tasted goo so that is not the issue. If the table had been clean, I think the other issues would have been taken in stride but no one wants to be seated at a dirty table.

    We enjoyed watching the cook and talking to him as he prepared our meals. Our server was decent. She kept our drinks refilled but we had to ask twice for forgotten soup. The rice was a little dry and the ginger dressing is better at Kabuki. I will probably choose a different Japanese Steakhouse the next time.

    We brought out of town guests here for dinner at their request. The showmanship of the chef was excellent as he entertained us with humor and his skills with both the knife and the salt and pepper shakers. Food is good and served in generous portions. Nice evening.

    My husband and I celebrated my son's 10th Birthday at Kanki with friends. They were very kind, efficient and the food was consistent. The bathrooms were also really clean.

    Overall tue experience was good. The chef we had was mute the whole time whereas all the other chef's were doing tricks and interacting with the guests. When we ordered the meat we originally said medium, after about 5 minutes we decided to change to medium rare. The chef said ok and still cooked it the same way for everyone. Why bother to even ask? The rice for a table of 8 people had oy one egg. Does it cost too much for the eggs? I love Tempenyaki. I definitely believe it was not worth the almost 200.00.

    Food is always great. Services was terrific from both the waitress and the chef. They made the evening special for the birthday we were celebrating.

    Our chef took 50 minutes to. One out after we were seated. Our reservation was at 8:30 and the chef didn’t arrive until 8:20. We were starving. Only worth it because the food is amazing every single time! But I don’t know if I will want to wait that long again.
