I have visited Kanpai on several different occasions and it is consistently excellent service and delicious food. The sushi is extremely fresh and everything is very authentic, there is no other restaurant in Edinburgh that compares. Be sure to make a reservation as it is usually impossible to get a table without one.

This was my first time trying authentic sushi and it was great! The restaurant is lovely, really nice atmosphere and the staff were so friendly! The food was fresh and beautifully presented, would definitely return.

The menu has so many options and just the descriptions make you want to try so many things, you just know you won't have space for everything on your list. Since the portions for some of the menu items are not big, make sure you get at least some rolls, in order not to leave hungry. Our bill for lunch was quite substantial but we left happy and full:-). The grilled aubergine in teriyaki sauce is a poetry on the plate and should not be missed by anyone! Great spot in great location, although the space is not very cosy and doesn't look well arranged. Definitely more of a lunch than a nice cosy dinner evening type of place.

I visited this place twice - the best one for sushi in Edinburgh. Firstly, the atmosphere - like in a very good restaurant, with welcome staff, ready to help you. It's necessary to book in advance - the restaurant is full at the evenings! Secondly, sushi itself - very big portions (which is not very commonly here); very well-dressed and prepared, the taste is super, quality is excellent. I tried different big rolls (8 pieces), they all were wonderful!
