Had a reservation for 8 people and we seated right away. 2 of us decided to have a drink while waiting for the rest of our party. They were promptly served. However, as the rest of our party began to arrive, our orders were taken for a second drink. 10 minutes later, still no drink. We had to remind our... More

Three of us went on a week night and had great food and a great experience. The chef was entertaining and the food was expertly prepared.

I usually go for the Sushi. Tony is the best sushi chef in town. I've been to at least 10 sushi restaurants in Richmond and I still rank this #1. Had the hibachi once and it was very good also. Give it a try.

KanPai is well decorated and has a nice ambience. But, the place was nearly devoid of customers yesterday. My wife and I had some pretty nice sushi and sashimi, but, our miso soup was insipid and tasteless. My Japanese salad looked authentic, but the dressing was bland and non-gingery. Too bad. When we went in, there were only 4 customers... More

My fiance and I have been searching for the right place to have sushi and we finally found it. The atmosphere is great...they not only have sushi but for those fans of hibachi style cooking it is also available. It's a Japananese style steakhouse and sushi bar...The staff is friendly and accomodating. Tony, the sushi chef is fantastic at making... More
