Our family loved to go to Kanpai. The past year it has gone down drastically. Yesterday was my last straw. We waited over 50 minutes before our cook showed up, he had to call "nurse twice" (that is what they say when they need something from the kitchen). He spent 6 minutes total at our table. I had 4 girls... More

We have eaten here before and I must say things have gone down hill. When I ordered a combo meal that included RIBEYE they served us what looked and tasted like sirloin. NOT GOOD AT ALL. They loaded us up on rice, rice and more rice and added a small amount of onion and egg plant as our veggies. No... More

Kanpai has always been one of my favorite restaurants, and I have had many good times there. My visit tonight was the opposite. I was with a group of 7, looking to have a casual business meeting. We have gone to kanpai several times for this. The hostess was unhappy looking and kinda rude. Our waiter was so confused and... More

Last went to eat here years ago, and somehow expected a certain standard would've been maintained.was I ever wrong! We were greeted by an unenthusiastic hostess into a dirty greasy room and an unclean table which had no exhaust fan. The table beside us didn't have a fan either and their smoke and steam was enveloping them and filling our... More

While it is fun to watch the chef's antics in preparing the various meals which are cooked on a large sheet metal surface, once you have seen it a few times, the novelty wears off and you are just down to food and service. The service, other than what the chef prepares in front of you, is mostly just bringing... More

So I haven't been here in over two years. The last time I was there I had great service. So two years later, I tell my mother-in-law lets go there for her belated birthday. We can go on the side that they do not cook in front of you. We arrived around 6:15 p.m. The table wasn't cleaned off. It... More

Yells at them in front of customers, She is disrespectful, and needs to get it together cause people don't act that way!!! I don't understand how this lady hasn't been arrested or fired!. Or how kanpai hasn't... More

The quality of food and service here has gotten worse through the years and is now at an unacceptable level. At recent visit: 1- Only 6 of us at the table but were made to jam up together with no elbow room because they have added 2 more sets at each table 2- Chef raced through cooking with no show...

Went here for lunch for our son's belated bday. They were pretty busy when we arrived, but didnt wait more than 20 minutes even when a party of 23 were ahead of us. Our cook was awesome and fun, and the food was great! We enjoyed the tricks, flaming volcano and flying foods! Very entertaining. It was also nice being... More
