Kanpai is the bar side of Ogawa's Restaurant in Ontario, OR. In general the situation is the same for both places. But this is the no-nonsense bar side. The food is very good, as it is at Ogawa's. Bar service is good, but food service is s l o w. The pours are healthy and the pineapple chunks strangely addicting... More

I have eaten here a few times. Usually have one of the bento boxes or a beef bowl. Always good food. I finally tried their prime rib special that is available on the weekend. Wow! Very tender and flavorful! The best prime rib I've had in Ontario. The only downside is the price of their alcoholic drinks. They are definitely... More

The miso soup starter was flavorless. Maybe it was a powdered mix? We shared a bento box--the salmon & scallops. The salmon was good--the scallops, breaded & tasteless. Need I say more?

We had a terrific evening of food and laughter in this comfortable spot. The staff were quick in the uptake and the dishes were well prepared. A hit for us. We shall return!

I like the food and the service. Exceeded my expectations. Had sushi and teriyaki chicken, it was very good so I went back and had the bento box the next night. It was very good as well. I liked the atmosphere in the bar with the tv' s and the exceptionally friendly service.

I eat at Kanpai fairly regularly for lunch. Their sushi rolls are very good, especially when Tommy is making them. I've had their teriyaki bowls and I always get extra sauce. They are tasty and big. They have a very contemporary bar for cocktails after work and I love their martinis. Good appetizers which include my favorite of steamed edemami... More
