Wednesday night and struggled to get a table, always a sure sign you have found a good place to eat! The staff could not have been more helpful in accommodating us, booked us in for late sitting, took our mobile number then called she a table became free. The food was of a very high standard, recommend the sashimi platter... More

We visited because we'd been told about it by the staff at our fav sushi place in Edinburgh, sushiya (they're owned by the same peeps). The quality of the food and service was excellent, similar to sushiya, but a much larger restaurant with a more varied menu. Would definitely recommend, especially if you can't get a table in sushiya, or... More

We have been several times having dinner and always has been a really high quality sushi. Always amazing. With no doubt the best sushi in Edinburgh.

I want to start out by saying that the service was enthusiastic, warm, and friendly. When we first came in our coats were taken for us. Our food was brought to us quickly, and our courses were moved through seamlessly, with a member of staff always ready to whisk away an empty plate or get us another drink. So kudos... More

High quality Japanese food will never be cheap but Kanpai delivers both good quality and excellent value. The menu offers a good selection of standard fare: miso soup, sashimi, nigri sushi, maki rolls and so on, all of which we enjoyed. For us, the highlight was grilled aubergine with sweet miso - succulent and truly delicious. Service was friendly and... More

Overall great , fresh sushi experience,sadly let down by the Soft Shell Crab Californian Rolls. The batter was greasy with an unpleasant bitter after taste. The restaurant was very busy both at lunchtime , when I booked and in the evening. If you want to eat here I would strongly advise booking asap. I did think it was quite expensive... More

Without a doubt the best place for sushi in Edinburgh. Have an excellent choice of options on the menu and reasonably priced (I find sushi so filling so you don't need too much). Have been back again and again and it never ceases to impress. Love it!!
