Kanki North Market
Excellent food. Good COVID-19 measures in place. Felt very safe eating there.
I think our chef’s name was Victor. He was phenomenal and very personable.
Great food, great time. The chef was very entertaining and funny too. My family and I had a great dinner.
Great service, got there a little before our reservation and were immediately sat. The cook was AMAZING! He was so engaged with us and exspecially toward my 8 yr old son. And he cooked the food very well. He was all we could talk about after we left. Such a great time!
It’s my favorite place and I love the staff. I was pleased with how the setup is with the pandemic going on. I’m already ready to go back.
The staff was friendly. Placed reservation it was easy to use. When arrived we were sat almost immediately
Waitress was great, chef was great, food was great, restaurant was clean except floor was very slick around our table. What was not great was the pip squeak that approached us as we entered the restaurant approximately 5 minutes before our reservation time of 4:30pm. This guy, wearing a yellow shirt, approached us as we entered and asked us what we needed. Told him we had a 4:30 reservation. We then received a 'lecture' on how they didn't open the doors before 4:30 and that they were not able to accommodate us. His attitude upset my 15 year old granddaughter whose birthday we were celebrating. Being her birthday I kept my cool and said nothing. (I'm 6-3 230 lbs a country boy and usually do not do attitudes) His attitude set the stage for a very subdued birthday celebration. We have been patronizing Kanki since they opened in Raleigh at Crabtree. This however was the North Market Square location. We celebrate most occasions at Kanki but I will never patronize North Market Square Kanki again.
Chef this trip was not as entertaining and engaging as others have been in the past. Food was ok, but again, I’ve had better experiences in the past.
It was a good night out
Our chef was excellent!!!!! Hope to get him again !!!
Excellent food , service and following protocol for covid 19
Great customer service. Great food. We love going to Kanki!
Love Kanki.. Despite the times they didnt miss a beat!!.. I lived that they new me once i said i had a reservation!. Never dissatisfied with this Kanki!!
Birthday. We did not have a great experience with the waiter. Took extremely long to acknowledge any requests per myself and the other guests.
Food was ok. Not really worth the price but the staff is really friendly.
Food and service was excellent. Will go again
70th Birthday with my family
Great chef. Great atmosphere. Great place! Chef showed new tricks and was great fun!
Chef wasn’t as good as ones we’ve had in the past. Specific cooking requests were not meet that altered the taste of the food from what I like.
I surprised my sister fir her birthday by taking her to Kanki. Something we have not experience together before.
The experience was wonderful amid the trying times of today but we still felt special. Very thankful for all that was done to make this bday celebration memorable. We both had leftovers fir at least two more meals each! Impressive.
We had the lava shrimp...I don't even like shrimp but this was very good! And we both got the Banzi trio entree, I opted out of all veggies with a substitution of brocolli, fantastic. Can't wait to dine again with the full menu available.
I'm not understanding why they blocked off tables "for social distancing"... But then --- sit you at the table with OTHER (strangers) people.
No masks of course, because you're eating.
Our sever was Very nice, and was on top of her game. She refilled our drinks when needed and we didn’t have to ask. The chef was very funny and we all enjoyed him, and the food was delicious!
Great food, nice people and good service. Very expensive
I was very satisfied with both my service and my meal. I would definitely recommend Kanki.
The experience was great, our chef was AMAZING!! He seasoned the food so good!! I would love to have him every time! Our waitress was good our beverages stayed full.
If you put down your phone, you will notice that they put on quite a performance for you!
Fantastic atmosphere and very accommodating staff. I purposed to my girlfriend of 8 years and they were terrific, Drew our waiter and Victor our chef were both FANTASTIC! Looking forward to returning!!
Efficient and friendly service. Food very well prepared from clearly very fresh ingredients (great fish). Yes, would eat here again.
We always have a great time a Khanki. It is our family's go-to place for special events!
The food, the atmosphere, and the cooking was very, very good and satisfying.
Kanki is one of my favorite restaurants. It is good to have excellent food and a good show.
I normally loveeeee Kanki!! it’s usually my favorite place to go but this time the food came out pretty bad. I’ve never had steak from a restaurant taste almost like rubber. It was super tough & over cooked and I didn’t ask for well done. I asked for medium. by the time I realized it was too late. If this is how business is going to go moving forward I’d need to reconsider a new favorite place. Don’t want to bite into steak and lose a tooth
Absolutely love this location. Chef Mike definitely makes the experience enjoyable and his food is delicious!
We had reservations and we had to wait for a table. Our wait was a whole 1hr and 15 minutes later.
Chef was great and accommodating. Food was delicious. Waiter, Dennis, at the bar was awesome!
Had an enjoyable Anniversary dinner with the family for 5pm. Not busy at all around that time (is high was a plus). Had the table & chef to ourselves, which was nice due to the COVID seating rules. Food was tasty & the entertainment was fun (but seemed like the same routine as every other cool-in-front-of-you Japanese restaurant. Hoped for some originality. Portions were plentiful & we all had to box up our leftovers to go for later. For two adults & two kids (that don’t eat much), I felt the meal was a bit pricey. Enjoyed our spacious surroundings, but the restrooms could use a little renovating.
I had a wonderful time and my food was prepared hot and fresh. My service was good.
We had a great time!
I made a reservation base on the websites recommendation. I thought by doing that it would help the flow of customers dinning in based on Covid19, but there was still a half hour wait.
