Great ambience. Good Hibachi place. The chefs present a great show. Language is an issue and there seems to be miscommunication between the server and the chef, which can ruin your dinner if u r not attentive. However, with a little vigilance, you can enjoy real flavorful food, both Hibachi and Sushi. Definitely worth going, even if u r a vegetarian like me. This is the only place so far that I found 5 different types of Vegetarian Sushi and ofcourse ur choice of Veggie Tempuras ... if u r not hungry enough for a full Hibachi dinner.

Kani House is one of our go to spots for a family outing and I must say, I'm very pleased with the improvement this location has made with their staff and customer service. The food was great and our cook was entertaining and genuinely friendly.

Visited with a group from work. Maybe our teppan chef had an off night, but it wasn't an experience I'll come back for. Food was ok but the rest was well below average. Food was not prepared as requested and was all served at different times with large time gaps between the veggies, rice and meats. The other half of our party had a different chef and they finished ten minutes before we did.

Just had dinner tonight. First of all service was horrible! Waitress never came back to refill our drinks. The food was sub par in taste and servings! The vegetables were not fresh!! Would never go back. You can get better food at sho gun for 50 plus tip! I won't go back!

This Kani House is probably the worst of them all.

This place has been through recent renovations. Our Hibachi chef was more interactive than any other Hibachi experience we have had in a long time. It is my opinion that Kani house has the best ginger salad dressing. The staff was pleasant from start to finish. Great service and great prices. There is nothing more boring when you go to a Hibachi restaurant and the Chef fails to positively interact with his table. Well done Kani house!

Great place to watch the hibachi show with the family. Or if I'm a hurry, just order from the menu. Plenty of parking and easy to get a table. It is expensive even when you order from the menu but there is plenty of food.

Regular customer on the Hibachi side and the dine in side. It is my adult kids favorite place to go for any and all celebrations. Service is attentive and the food ranging from sushi and hibachi will keep you coming back for more.

BEWARE. I, nearly, died from food poisoning here in 2011. I had food poisoning for OVER 3-months. I will NEVER forget the poor quality food that Kanu House serves.

Besides the food being a bit bland, our party was the last of 3 to be served after being the first to be sat. I'd hate to bring race into it but the other groups were caucasian. The show our cook put on was nice; our food was underseasoned. I honestly think our server just wasnt prompt about putting in our order and that's me being modest.

This used to be our favorite restaurant but yesterday when we went there with couple of our friends, it was horrible service, waitress was so in friendly, cook was also not good , when we complain to manager , he didn't took any action nor apology, never go back to this place and not recommend to any one, when we asked for birthday song, the waitress said that no one is available any more, really very disappointing

Not bad! It's hard for me to like a place since I'm very picky! Lol but this place was perfect to celebrate my boyfriends birthday! I'm definitely coming back :)! Everything is so clean and they get they're job done. They guy doing the tricks was really good.

Nice place for dinner. Menu and serving options are a little confusing if you are not a regular diner here. Girl at front desk was very friendly though, she patiently listened and explained. We went for hibachi grill. It was quite entertaining watching food cooked with small tricks for young ones. Taste was okay but Juan (the cook, quite frankly I don't know if that's his real name) tried to make it to our taste and he succeeded to some extent. I don't know why he was hesitant to tell his name. His tag had initials "J. J." on it. Anyways, he was friendly and entertaining. One thing could make it better is to have options for sides with entree. I had to let shrimp as side go because I couldn't take chicken for that. Besides that it was a good night out.

Raj Jasani

Really really good!!! Definitely would go back there but the price a bit high. The staff was really nice and polite

Pretty average hibachi restaurant. The staff is friendly, which is sadly rare for these places.

Terrible Take Out Service!!! I highly suggest you do NOT take out there. We have had several problems with food missing and tonight was the last time we will go there for take out. I called and told the person on the phone we had missing sauces on our last order just a few weeks ago to be sure everything is there. My husband picked up the food there and there were no sauces to go with our meats and shrimp and no rice. I called the manger who took forever to come to the phone and he did not offer to give us a gift card or do anything. Very Poor Customer service!!!

Great experience. Kani House is a little hidden away, behind the Longhorns and in front of the H mart. They serve great Hibachi and Sushi. Try their hibachi and their sashimi plate. The sushi chefs are very kind and generous. Great portion sizes for the price.

Authentic Japanese food. Small cozy place has been here for many years. Don't let the building indicate the quality of the food or service. We sat in a booth and they had a light/split curtain there also, so really private dinner.

I usually hate hibachi restaurants but this restaurant was a WOW! Interior is really well done and service was amazing. They have a huge variety of imported beers but the the show piece are there rolls! There rolls are truly amazing!

jeroen knapen

This place is always good. We especially like coming here for birthdays. Hibachi Chef's are doing a great job and the food is excellent here

My boyfriend got food poisoning from the shrimp and vegetable tempura. They made it in the back and I'm pretty sure they mixed the tempura with the other food they were cooking in the fryer. Just as a warning, I would only eat here for the hibachi because they can make it in front of you. (and you can actually see them cook it)

Charlie Lawrence

Food was amazing and the manager James is always so accommodating! Highly recommended every one going! So fun for kids and adults to enjoy. Restaurant was very clean also!

Ken Hoadley

After having the Shimp and Vegetable Tempura, I felt extremely ill short after leaving, close to the point of vomiting. Before coming in, I felt perfectly fine. Above average, in fact. But after my experience here tonight, I am now currently choking down antiacids in hopes that I feel better tomorrow.

Awesome food and terrific magic trick by Chef at the end

Jonathan W.

Cheif Lovely is a great cook and majician. He cooled the food to perfection. Our server Mindy was very professional and knowledgeable of the menu. She assisted my wife with her sushi selection.

Michelle Ratcliff

Chef William is the best!!!!! We love him he did a magic trick and made my first experience here wonderful!!!!


Their cooking performance might entertain you, but their foods certainly won't. The hibachi are too salty, everything, from stir fried rice to fish to shrimp, salty and too sweet. The fish even have a weird sour flavor due to the lemon the cook used during the pan frying, not after. So the good scent of lemon was gone, only left a sour flavor. I asked for the white rice, only to find it's half-cook. I tried some stir-fried rice and it's too salty. It's more Korean than Japanese, but it doesn't have the best part of Korean cuisine - the beautifully flavored side dishes. Besides, the whole place is not clean. The tables and floor are oily. Not a good place at all if you have an elegant date to impress.

I normally don't eat Asian food, however, I was talked into going here Saturday (2-16-18), and I'm glad I stepped out of my comfort zone! The food and service was excellent! What made me the happiest was seeing a 100 health score! YAAY! We were a group of 4, and we all sat at the Hibachi grill! I had never sat a Hibachi grill before where the food was cooked right if front of me before, so to say the least, I was very impressed. The cook "Jonathan" was HILARIOUS!! I got the Hibachi shrimp and tilapia, with veggies and steamed rice! It was so good! Oh, and I have new talent: catching rice in my mouth!! LOL!! Jonathan asked if anyone at the table we were sitting at wanted to try to catch the rice as he flipped it to you from behind the grill, I said "I'll be a good sport" and I did it!! Yaay me!! Anyway, I highly recommend Kani House to anyone who eats Asian food, you won't be disappointed! P.S. Sorry I don't have any pictures to include. :(

We love Hibachi grill places and Kani house is by far our favorite in the area. It has all of the things you would expect including good food and an action filled dinner with lots of tricks. Each chef has their own style. Our favorite item for coming here are the servers who are responsive while making for a personalized engaging experience.

Closed early for the super bowl. Doors unlocked, no sign at all. They just let you walk right in and say, "we're closed" like YOU are the one who did something wrong. WTF is going in Duluth that these businesses just close whenever they want and don't think it's necessary to even put up a sign?

Sandra S.

From the moment we walked in the restaurant we were greeted and seated in 5 mins. It's best to place a reservation beforehand. The server(s) were friendly, punctual with our order and made sure we were satisfied throughout the hibachi experience. To top it off, the chef was fun, entertaining and quick. Loved every minute of it. Food was really good and well seasoned.

Clint K.

I just wasn't impressed with anything. Maybe it was how it started. We were seated with some screaming kids. I don't have a problem with kids but I would expect that the hostess would seat the groups with kids together and the adult groups at another table. The next thing that wasn't up to par was the plastic Pepsi cup. I don't consider this fine dining but I would think glassware would be more appropriate. Service is slow and the food is less than memorable.

Kelly Martin

Service, atmosphere & food are first rate! Good pricing for the show they put on. Not a long wait and once seated, they took good care of us. Very accommodating to any special requests we had. Birthdays are done right.

Mike Dudgeon

Good food but never come here in Christmas eve. We had a 830 reservation but didn't get seated till close to 10 and didn't leave till almost midnight. They clearly don't know how to manage a busy night. The food and everything else is great though

Jennifer B.

Management should be absolutely ashamed of the situation they placed both customers and staff in on Christmas Eve. Gross overbooking left our party of 14 being told we could not be seated for over an hour past our reservation time. We could barely get in the door from all the people jammed in the entryway. Worst of all there wasn't a manager in sight, only the hostesses left at the front of the restaurant alone to be berated by furious people over and over. Why take more reservations then you can handle? Why not call people once you realize what you've done to cancel or try to reschedule instead of just letting people keep piling up while you get further and further behind? Why not have a manager readily available to offer apologies and/or compensation to people having their holiday dinner ruined? The only possible answer is poor management or total incompetence, either way we left and will never return. You shouldn't either.
