4 courses for $8.00! How can you say no! We had soup or salad. I chose salad---very fresh and crisp. Several varieties of rice and egg rolls along with the main entree. I had sweet and sour chicken. Everything was delicious! We will definitely return here to enjoy these appetizing selections!

I visited two days in advance to place my order so they could have ready for noon pick-up. I visited two days later, grab n go was ready (20 grab rangoon,... More

Kanpai is my staple for sushi. Small and intimate setting, and they just so happen to have some of the best drink specials! Don't skip out on the crab rangoon!

Small, intimate, local brews... the lunch salad was huge, lunch portion is pretty hardy and tasty. The general tso isn't heavily breaded and the sauce is lute yet flavorful.

This popular restaurant is very small and reservations are suggested. Some may find the noise level a bit annoying. Personally, I like the feel of a popular bustling place. The sweet and sour chicken and roasted brussel sprouts are so good! Lunch bento boxes are inexpensive and allow the patron to try different entrees. Musicians play occasionally and Monte Skelton...

The sushi here is some of the best in Evansville. The owner takes great pride in his food and his staff take that same pride. The tables are very close together and it can be hard to get in during lunch but well worth the wait.

We had heard some decent things about KanPai, so we went ahead and tried it. It's a cute bistro area, though limited parking due to some bad planning by the restaurant's business neighbor. Though voicing it was our first time, the waiter didn't familiarize us with the menu or point out any house specialties. We did go ahead and try... More

Kanpai is a very small Asian restaurant in the center of Evansville. My wife is Asian and her father is a chef, so we are pretty critical of some Asian restaurants. We were very pleased with Kanpai. The Good: the food is quite simply outstanding. We had a California roll (which was average). The edamame hummus, which was an absolute... More
