We were in Chapel Hill for my husband's conference for work and have driven by this restuarant for years, but never had, so we decided to give it a try. It was early on a Friday night, but we still had to wait for over 45 minutes for a table. The hostesses were fine, just a little distracted with personal... More

Two of us dined here for a medical visit at Duke University Medical Center. An we had a wonderful dinner We shared an excellent sushi roll and the spicy soba noodles (which came with a soup and salad, both quite tasty). The cocktails were a bit too sweet for me but good variety. I would definitely eat at Kanki again.

Always a great meal at Kanki. Wonderful dining with a show (provided you get a good chef). Usually a bit of a wait and it's not cheap eating, but the food has always been good.

Go for the show, not for the food. Food is average Japanese "ish" fare. Nothing really stands out. Great for kids birthdays.

We travel to North Carolina every month and we make sure to stop here. The service is great and the good is always perfect. The only slight change I would make is that the chefs that cook for you were more entertaining towards the kids. But it doesn't stop me from coming.

Came here for lunch after walking out of Applebee's without ordering and we were seated right away and had our food making in front of us within 10 minutes. Great server, chef, and great food.

It was a coworker's going away and she picked this restaurant. We waited an hour and a half for a table on Saturday night (they don't take reservations.) No big deal, the place was crowded, so we went with it. We were seated with another party who was celebrating a birthday. And waited. No one came. About twenty minutes went... More

We were catching up with old friends and they suggested this restaurant. We had ample opportunity for good conversation along with an entertaining chef and good food. Our chef had a fun sense of humor and kept us entertained. I had the Hibachi Chicken and enjoyed it. When they found out is was our anniversary, they brought out a small... More

This is a very popular restaurant. We went on a very rainy Friday night and it was packed. We had a 45 minute wait, even though the restaurant is extremely large. Come early unless you want to wait. The cook put on a very entertaining show and the food was very tasty. I recommend that you not get the chicken,... More
