We came here 3 times during our stay in Granada and can honestly say this is one of the best Japanese restaurants we've been too (and we've been to a lot!). Tempura prawn, raw salmon and spicy tuna sushi rolls were to die for - so fresh! Chicken and pork great too. Best part was the service - restaurant is... More

Sushi is my all time favourite food; and this was a real treat. Wasn't expecting such tasty salmon sashimi on top of my rainbow roll! Our server was beyond friendly, he even made us cute little paper cranes for my boyfriend and I :) a bit pricey, but for the quality and considering you are in Nica, it really is... More

We stumbled across this place and we weren't disappointed. The food was delicious! We had miso soup, avocado rolls (the avocado was so creamy and it came with great wasabi and ginger) and the tonkatsu and it was all so flavoursome! It was the best Japanese we've eaten since we left Australia 6 months ago! There is also a cute... More

After two months on the road through Central America, my wife and I heading south are enjoying eating local food and meeting lots of great people. We stumbled upon KANPAI, saw it had a great atmosphere and decided to have a break from the common CA food. The dinner was amazing, all the dishes were authentic and blew us away,... More

This place is great for sushi and other Japanese dishes. They have a lot of standard dishes and some that were a bit different. No sashimi but raw fish sushi. It's not cheap but food is great and the manager is very friendly. Very efficient service and good quality ingredients. Would definitely recommend.

My husband and I ate at Kanpai and had a lovely experience. The owner Masaya was so nice and friendly. The Miso soup was just what I was looking for and my husbands chicken katsu was cooked to perfection. Felt just like we were back in Japan.

Description
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.
