Kanpai - Yes, Please?!

My best friend Ashley and I ate at Kanpai again, the other day. Ashley had the Miso Soup and the General Tso's Chicken and Brown Rice and 1/2 and order of the California (sushi) Roll. And I had the Miso Soup and the Sweet & Sour Chicken, Crab Rangoon and Fried Rice. Very good food and quick... read more

I went to have a nice sushi dinner and had some of the cheapest (as in taste) sushi I have ever had. I visited because of the reviews but I guess this is the best evansville has to offer. Thank god I don't live here anymore because I wouldn't eat sushi if so......

KanPai Shrimp is a must- I've never had anything like it. The sushi is good, the service is good, and the food is good. What more could you ask for! Probably not a family friendly place, more of a place to go with friends.

This place is a little unpredictable. I have been served food that was absolutely excellent, and then I've been served food I didn't even want to eat (and my menu choices are usually the same). They are certainly capable of providing a delicious meal, but I guess it depends on the day and who's in the kitchen. However, every time... More

My family likes dining here and we eat here often. Sushi is very good and they have a nice variety. The pho soup is great and very flavorful. Small, but with a warm, inviting atmosphere. Staff is friendly and make for a relaxed environment.

I've been eating here for years, sometimes weekly, and they are consistently good! They have a large variety of sushi rolls along with other menu items to please the non-sushi eaters. The kanpai salad and kanpai shrimp is a yummy way to start off your meal. I recommend a reservation if going on a Friday or Saturday evening. The place... More

This place had some good (microbrew) beer choices, and was willing to make what we wanted vegetarian. Biggest downside: REALLY busy on a Friday night. Very small place. But the food and beer were good.

I found out about this place from tripadvisor. I then asked friends that had been here about it. All said it is a must go to. So I finally got around to it. Wonderful. Lots to chose from, chinese food or sushi. I wanted sushi. I also wanted hot saki, as it was cool and damp outside. I enjoyed both.... More

I have been going to KanPai for about 2+ years. I have always had a good experience. Jason, (the owner) is personable, knowledgable and will pretty much cook what you want, if it's not on the menu. Waitstaff is very good. Avocado sushi is excellent. Cannot beat the price/value on the Bento box lunch. Great place to talk also. As... More

In my opinion the most authentic place to get sushi in town. Dining area is small but quaint and adds to the non-franchise atmosphere. Service was great and owner stopped by and chatted for quite awhile. Can't wait to go back!!
