“Great food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

We were visiting friends and in the mood for Japanese food. What a wonderful choice! The service was excellent and the food was absolutely terrific! We sampled a lot of different items from sushi to rolls to tempura. One big thing I always look for is the greasiness of the tempura. This was not greasy at all! It was crisp and the veggies were tender. The sushi was super fresh and tasty as well. We will be sure to eat here again when we are in town! Loved it!

“Melts in your mouth!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012 via mobile

Place has the best sushi I have ever had!!! Reasonable sized rolls, not tiny and dry like one can find in some sushi places. Ginger was sharp and sweet, white in color. Love me some ginger while I change from one roll to the other, cleaning my palette. Had the crunchy salmon, crunchy and the spiced tuna. All were fantastic. Before we knew it, we were full and the chef/sushi roller asked if we still wanted to have the other rolls we had ordered. Lucky for us, he was very attentive to us and answered all our questions. This place would be a must try again it was so good.

“Excellent food & customer service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011

We have been to the Kanpai in Aliso Viejo perhaps 50 times. We have never had a bad meal and the service has always been excellent; very friendly, fast and no problems ever. The prices are also quite reasonable.
