I have eaten here at least 20 times a year for the last several years and it is always amazing. The bento boxes are always delicious regardless of if you get the pork katsu, the teriyaki chicken, or the tempura shrimp. The chirashi and volcano bowls are my favorite, and Bruce the owner makes a wide variety of house and... More

Growing up in Japan and being a somewhat new resident to Hampton Roads I of course had to spend a lot of time looking for a staple sushi place, and all my dinning experiences have led me to one place, Kanpai. I've been to pretty much every sushi place in tidewater that was worth the visit. You first enter through... More

This is our favorite sushi restaurant in the area...Both of us lived in Japan and there are items that we haven't found outside of Japan until we came to Kanpai. We truly enjoy every meal we get- the service is exceptional each time and the quality is impeccable.

Good Japanese atmosphere (I lived in Japan so I speak from experience.). However, it took us nearly 2 hours to be served fried rice and 4 sushi rolls. It's okay food but nothing to write home about in terms of sushi. If it's in your neighborhood it's good, but if you have options be sure to explore them.

The place is tucked in a street mall near a busy intersection. The decor is clean and the place feels very inviting. The waiter was very helpful when we came in around 9 on a Saturday night. It was the second time we visited this place. We tried the two-roll-dinner. It was very yummy. The creme burlee was soooo good!

This past Saturday evening we decided to try this restaurant as we had heard from others good things about this particular sushi location. After being seated and served waters and ordering the Wasabi Dumbpling App our waitress said she would be back to take our order. Another server brought the App to our table and they were NOT GOOD. However,... More

We frequent a lot of different restaurants, however this one is our favorite! We have been dining there on average 3-4 times a month for approx. 4 years. We always have the best service with Susan and staff. Everything is so fresh, creative and delicious! We have tried other sushi restaurants all over, but nothing compares to the sushi that... More

My wife and I visit this establishment regularly. We have been regulars there for well over 3 years. It is by far the very best sushi we have ever tasted! And the atmosphere is so nice and relaxing. When you walk inside you immediately feel like you are in another place, far away from all the hustle and bustle of... More

This place has the BEST sushi! The food is amazingly fresh and the service is excellent! This is the only sushi place that I go to because they are the best. We go frequently, and always bring friends, who are always impressed. We have never had a bad meal. Bruce, the owner, is always there and very friendly. He does... More
