Prices are too high and the food is not all that great. You have to pay extra for fried rice?! That is just ridiculous. I do not know if ANY Japanese restaurants that charge extra for that! Do not eat here.

Felt pity about this poor restaurant. I stopped by Greenville by myself, instead of get some fast food, I visited this one. They let me sit in a tiny corner with someone else. I request a small table, and they say it is very busy today while there are more than 15 tables empty until I left. End up in... More

First there is not a good Japanese steak house in Greenville. They all suck in one way or another. But Kanpai is by far the worst. Went this past Friday night with my daughter. First the place smells and it is very dirty....old and dingy. Next the prices are SKY HIGH!!! Like almost double what the other 2 Japanese steak... More

I reviewed this place I thought but it is under the Spartanburg Kanpai. Anyway the food here is better than at the Spartanburg locale but wow is it pricey and we seldom go here for that reason. Service is decent but just can't get past the prices! Be prepared to shoot your whole wad here!

I visited this restaurant later in 2012. The restaurant is very busy and the service could have been a little faster. The lighting is very dim and the smoke from the grills seems to hang in the air. The food is served in I guess what is called a hibachi grill style where the chef cooks on a large grill... More

I ordered sashimi. The fishes had no taste. Looked too old. Not fresh. I also ordered strawberry lemonade. Could not drink 1/4 of it. I will not return.

Food is always fresh and delicious. Watching them prepare the food is a treat in itself and makes for a great experience

We went on the early bird special. Had to wait a little while but it was Saturday night so it was expected. The waiter and the cook was pleasant and personable. The food was disappointing and of low quality. The soup was weak tasting, the salad dressing tasted like watered down mayonnaise (was not offered ginger dressing). The steak was... More

My daughter likes this place. We went for her birthday and she chose it. The rest of the family likes it. I just find the food too salty.

Kanpai is one of my usuals, I go several times a month. Make sure to go during Happy Hour, many of the sushi rolls are only $2.50. Two people can easily get out for around $10. The service used to be better, our favorite waiter left about a year ago and the service has gone down hill ever since. I... More
