The King and I of Canyon welcomes hungry visitors to feasts of rich coconut-milk curries, tender morsels of tuna, salmon, and crab, and spicy stir-fry dishes flavored with aromatic scallions, garlic, ginger, peppers, and basil. Taking its name from the famous Rodgers and Hammerstein musical and its less famous spinoff sitcom, the restaurant enchants visitors with an exotic, yet approachable charm, seating guests at tables decorated with fan-folded napkins and fresh blossoms, while serenading diners with live musical performances. Behind the marble-topped sushi bar, chefs hand-roll inventive maki combinations or arrange nigiri plates into colorful, edible pieces of art.
The chefs at O'Hana Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar expertly roll dozens of sushi specialties and sizzle meat-centric Japanese entrees atop a hibachi grill. Snag a seat at the bar to watch chefs chop, slice, and wrap the popular Snow Crab Heaven roll, a blend of cream cheese, snow crab, and avocado topped with spicy mayo ($11.95), and other specialty rolls on the menu. Bite into the Hottie Susan’s molten core of spicy tuna, cucumber, and salmon ($12.95), or let daring chopsticks challenge the Dragon ($9.95), a California roll packed with eel and a deep-seated grudge against questing knights. Alternately, chefs can flip fiery portions of steak, chicken, shrimp, or scallops on a traditional Japanese grill to yield four types of hibachi dinners ($12.99–$17.99 each) flanked by onion soup, a house salad, grilled vegetables, and rice. Kid-friendly options, including pint-sized portions of teriyaki chicken ($8.99) and steak ($9.99), keep young mouths busy so they don’t shout out parents’ computer passwords in the middle of dinner.
