Popped in here on a whim as staying in the hostel opposite. BEST. DECISION. EVER. Loved it; lovely staff, nice garden setting and the food was amazing! We had the prawn tempura rolls and a chicken katsu, which was plenty enough for two. Not the cheapest option in Granada, but it's certainly worth the extra few córdoba. Definitely give it... More

This is a must eat place after you eat at various other locations. Excellent food; great variety; excellent service with a smile and the prices where reasonable to slightly higher. But all food was very fresh therefore well worth the prices.

The owner lived in Japan for many years before opening this restaurant. I had the cold ramen salad, which hit the spot in so many ways. The ramen was springy and al dente as it should be and the eggs were half boiled with runny centres as it should be. The chicken was a little salty, but I find that... More

Great Japanese food, best Gyoza I've had in a long time. Service was amazing and it's a beautiful space. If you need a sushi hit this is the spot.

We visited here about a week ago and have nothing but praise for the friendly staff and incredible food. There is a great choice of sushi and other Japanese dishes and good happy hour drinks deals. Would highly recommend!

Great food for the price, with an excellent vegetarian option. The appetizers and rolls we had were very tasty and the service was on point. A very friendly and kind staff. The location doesn't seem like much before entering but once inside you find a clean, and lively hidden jem.

My partner and I delighted our selves in Kanpai on our visit to Granada. The place has been beautifully designed; and the food, wonderfully created. We enjoy the service of whom's name I cannot recall at the moment--he was a man from the U.S. (I believe). He made us feel at ease, and attended to every vegan question we asked.... More

Authentic Japanese food. Fresh sushi, tempura, sake and more. Japanese chef. International standards. Beautiful surroundings with ambiance and modern decor. A safe, well lit, 5-minute walk from the main tourist area (Calzada Street). Great for couples, groups and business meetings or just one. Lots of local information and advice on traveling around.
