Everything about this restaurant was great! The service was top notch, as well as the atmosphere. There are plenty of tables and large roomy booths. I HIGHLY recommend getting the stuffed avocado as a starter. For an entree they have a great selection of sushi rolls and other food for the non sushi crowd. Definitely get at least one roll that is served flaming.

This was our second time at Kanpai. The food was fabulous. We had a large group(13), so we made reservations ahead of time. Everyone ordered something different, and everything I tried was exceptional. I really loved the Hawaiians volcano as they light it at the table, and it brings a beautiful flavor to the roll. I had salmon belly nigiri, and it was exceptional. The Boss roll was so flavorful. We also had the Sweet and Spicy Gyoza which was truly delicious. I can't wait to go back.

I was in town for a work trip. Food was great, vibes were great, waiter was great. I got the dragon roll and the "oh my god" because I wanted to see the fire. The fire was awesome and the roll itself was pretty good. The dragon roll though???? I want to eat it every day for the rest of my life.
