We couldn't believe the price on the menu as compared to what we normally pay in OZ. The chef is actually a real japanese man versus some asian of some sort. Everything we had was superb.

Are a large group we descended upon Kanpai after the renovations and were very pleased with the food, the service and the atmoshere. The owners and staff were very attentive to our group as well as the full house and brought us a lovely complimentary wine. I would highly recommend Kanpai!

My girlfriend was craving sushis, so we got there hoping to have good food, but we got disappointed. The food is average, and the place is quite dull.

Ordered a Sushi and Sashimi dishes. Really authentic Japanese taste and nice staff. It is not a cheap restaurant but definitely worth the price! You can seat outside and have a view of the bay, wonderful during the sunset. Recommended!

Fantastic prices and excellent quality food, make sure you have the Sake as well. We have occasionally had the wrong meals brought out but this is always promptly fixed which is the main thing!
