Kanpai is an excellent sushi restaurant in a posh area of Bucharest. Whatever you choose from the menu, you simply can't go wrong. We highly recommend the spicy salmon and the futomaki tuna. The varieties with Philadephia cheese are also a nice touch and provide...a great tasting experience. The rice-based desserts are excellent, as is the black sesame icecream. On the downside, the sake isn't all that good. We also enjoyed the music and the service - the staff has been very friendly and helpful.More
The food was delicious. We went two times and tried different types of ramen (so far the one with seafood and the spicy one with pork are my favorites). We only tried one type of sushi which was delicious as well.
The service could be...better - the second time we went there, the waiter was quite rude in telling us to change the table (the terrace was empty and there were no reservation marks on tables) and remained rude throughout our dinner.More
Japanese food should not be this bland and uninspired. The sauces in the dish tasted as if they came right out of a bottle. The only thing we enjoyed was the tempura ice cream.
The serving was pretty bad as well, the waiters were fine...but it took them forever to serve us even if we put our hand up. Also, our dishes came 15 minutes apart from each other. Overall, not a great experience and I wouldn't recommend it.
The prices are not high at all so that's a plus I guess...More

Japanese restaurant in Floreasca quarter, modern looks, delicious food; miso ramen and sushi platter - outstanding; don’t miss fried sushi; kind service; steep prices; seasonal outdoor seating; no wi-fi; public street parking;
I love this restaurant!
The food is great and staff is friendly. It has the best soups I’ve had in Bucharest so far. The sushi and tempura Udon are my faves.
Only drawback is that it’s a small place and when it’s crowded it feels...a bit stuffy.More
