The bar is dirty and food is average. Probably should give half portions of rice at the grill. Service is very good but better food in town. If you go male a reservation because I have been told they are usually crowded

Years ago this was a great place to go for Japanese cuisine but NOT any longer. The positive side was our server did a wonderful job and our chief was very entertaining. The food was over cooked and over priced! We went for the dinner hour (had the option of "Early Bird Special) and it was twice as expensive for... More

I had not visited this location for a while, and the food was about the same. I understand it is hard to find a skilled trained chef that can perform tricks, so I tried to be understanding. Ours is at least friendly. I felt the service was a bit rush, after the salad was served, our server asked if I... More

Sushi here is good! Service was a little slow, but could have been because it was fairly busy. The sushi is not expensive at all and that's a plus when you have children that love sushi as well!!

The wife and i love to come here during "happy hour". Sit in the sushi bar and a large portion of their sushi menu is half price! And the service is fantastic, the food fresh and delicious! The Carolina roll is my personal favorite, while my lady loves the Midori. We definitely reccomend giving Kanpai a try!

The food is perfect here, but it is just too much food. I ate there with friends for lunch and we were heading out shopping afterwards, so we could not take home leftovers. They do not allow sharing food here without a $7.00 sharing fee, so I ordered my teenager her own meal. Seriously we had enough food for 4... More

There were 10 of us, all friends from high school. The reservation was for 7:30 pm. Our waitress was Amanda, who was very sweet and attentive. She played along with us. Our chef was pleasant, but not really talkative. Didn't really put on a show that we expected. Could have been because we were the last group on his shift.... More
