RALEIGH, N.C. — For 48 years, Kanki Japanese House of Steaks and Sushi has served up hot cuisine in front of diners at Crabtree Valley Mall.

Founded in 1972, there are also two other locations in north Raleigh and Durham. Groups routinely gather to watch chefs make onion volcanoes, flip grilled shrimp in the air and cook fresh vegetables table-side.

But what happens when the show isn't possible anymore?

General Manager Tom Mukoyama spoke with the Out and About podcast about what challenges his business is facing amid the coronavirus, including the closure of all dine-in restaurants.
Kanki is open for take-out and curbside pick-up orders..
