“Surprisingly good sushi!”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

We were very positively surprised by the quality of the sushi this restaurant has to offer, since we really didn't know what to expect in Nicaragua.

“The food is good, the chef is H-O-T”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

I don't eat sushi but all my friends do and they love Kanpai. I go for the tempura, pork and other non-sushi items. It is clean, the staff are fun and the food safe and tasty. For 6 the bill was under $100, what 2 people can pay in LA. Highly recommended.

“Great Sushi”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

If you've got a hankering for sushi in Nicaragua, have no fear, KANPAI is here. Great sushi for a good value. If you're traveling through Granada, make sure to stop here at least once. And if you're headed there tonight, you'll see me ordering some dragon rolls.

“Super good”
Reviewed December 10, 2013 via mobile

Just wandered across the road from our hostel, lost track of time so we didn't want to go far. So we thought we would give this place a try.

Turned out great!

Staff were super nice. Read the little story on the table special menu, it's cool and u can defiantly feel those vibes running through the place.

The food was fresh and had great flavour. If you are in the market for something a little different don't miss this place

“Great Restaurant, Great People”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

I have nothing bad to say about Kanpai. Stepping into the restaurant is like stepping into a place many miles away from Granada. It is a great place to have a meal with a date, a family, or friends. The food is outstanding and authentic. The best part about restaurant, however, is the love and warmth the owners/managers, Rick and Masaya, have for the restaurant, the food, their patrons, Granada, travels, and everyone/everything in between. They're great people that are dedicated to serving a great experience. They have a wonderful story (written on cards placed at every table) and are two of the greatest people I met on my trip to Nicaragua.

I highly recommend this restaurant if you are in or near Granada. Even just stopping in for a cocktail or an ice, ice cold Toña (after a 95+ degree day) will be something you'll never regret.
