We sat at a regular table and had a waiter. Although the waiter was good, the food was not! One family member sent hers back, I did not but should have. The overall temperature was tepid and the chicken tough and DRY,

Kanji has decent food, especially the salads and hibachi veggies, but it can be a long wait to be seated. The mall location brings in plenty of customers but it’s a hassle to park and get to it if you’re not already at the mall.

Food was average, it wasn’t bad, just not worth waiting 60 minutes for it. I should have gotten the sushi, that looked much better than the other food. Waitress had no personality, but the server who kept refilling the waters was fantastic, he would make...More

A large group of us gathered there for steak and/or sushi. Sushi reported was taking 45 minutes so we all opted for the hibachi prepared steak / seafood. The entire dinner was prepared well. Service was prompt. One caution -- they WILL not seat you...More

Yes they do, they have the Hibachi options in the kids' size and they also have tempura shrimp and chicken tenders on the kids' menu. It's not a very big selection to choose from.
