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!!

I like to come to Kanpai after work to enjoy the 1/2 price wine specials and beer selection. The food is decent. The sushi isn't the best in town...pretty average. I enjoy the selection of various Asian cuisine and the entertainment. Great service and casual vibe.

I took my daughter and son to Kanpai this past week. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the variety from the appetizers to the sushi plates we ordered. I know they both want to go back!!

I like the beer selection and the ambience at KanPai. The waitstaff was VERY friendly and the music was the perfect volume. I was not a huge fan of the disposable table cloths, but it works. The Crab Rangoon, if you like it, was really creamy and contrasted well with the sweet and spicy sauce that went with it. I... More
