Kanpai Japanese is one of those places I’ve walked past a dozen times and never really noticed, however a failed attempt to eat at Miss Chus (it was too busy and we were too hungry to wait) led us to wander in here.
Kanpai Japanese is something between a cafe and a restaurant, but what I can say is it was great value. Tempura vegetables were light and crispy, as was the batter on the Tonkatsu, and both had good flavour. Yakiniku Beef stir fry had a lovely rich sauce without being overbearing, and I’m sure we had something else but I can’t remember. With 2 bottles of sake and a glass of wine, and enough food for 4 people, it cost a little over $100.
The service was quick, friendly, and helpful.
