Sushi

Kanpai is a restaurant best known for its sushi; we have over 55 beers in house that change on a weekly basis. We have $15 bottles of wine all day every day and we also have a new kitchen menu for a taste of the very best in Asian inspired dining. If you enjoy great food and a great atmosphere, Kanpai is a unique Evansville restaurant to visit for lunch or dinner. We are right off of Green River Road if you’re looking for something near Evansville’s east side. Every time you stop in could be a different experience, as we may have live music or a craft beer tasting. If you’re hungry and in a hurry for carry-out or a large business delivery, Kanpai now offers the simplicity and accuracy of online ordering.

This is my goto restaurant when I am in Evansville. This is not a fancy place and the ambiance isn't particularly great, so might not be the spot to take a date you're trying to impress, but its nice, clean, and quiet. I've had business lunches and dinners here where fancy was not important. However, I have a reputation to uphold when it comes to finding great food, and in that department, this place does not disappoint. Also very reasonably priced for the quality of the food you are getting.

The 8$ bottle of wine was decent and saved the rest of the meal. The entire restaurant was completely empty for almost the entirety of the meal at 430 on wine Wednesday as well.

We were brought our food with out any utensils and also our sweet tea was refilled twice with unsweetened tea. Our sushi was on point, however my son's General Tso's lacked flavor.

The wait staff were kind when I had questions. The food was phenomenal!! Who knew a seaweed salad would actually be so delicious!?!? The Godzilla Roll and the Three Spicy Roll are the only two I've tried so far. I see many more trips to Kanpai in my future!

A couple of girlfriends and I gathered for a wine Wednesday. I was so glad I made a reservation previous to coming. Soon as I stepped in, it was really busy. I loved the ambiance. I loved the live music. The value of the wine was amazing. Not to mention, the food was ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! I love this place extra because it's literally right by my apartment. Kanpai you're freaking awesome. I will be back.

All 4 of the menu items we sampled were excellent. The ahi tuna is to die for. It melted in my mouth. The fried zucchini was a large serving and came with a tasty dipping sauce. And don't leave without trying one of the fried eggroll desserts. The restaurant is small and was noisy on a Friday evening, but the service and food more than made up for that.

This visit is the only visit that I would rate less than perfection. The service was lacking. Our server was Justin I believe he said his name was. He brought our drinks and then we didn't see him again for quite some time. The person that seemed to be the manager or shift leader brought our main course and I reminded him that we did not receive our salads. Approximately 10 minutes later Justin brought our salads. I observed that other servers were having the same issues. A young man sitting alone requested something and it was approximately 10 minutes later before he received if. Just as I did, he sat and waited without eating his entree in front of him. The servers were not talking to each other, not working together. And the hostess was no help--she was not at the door as people came in. Then when no one was coming in, she was standing bored at the hostess station. I will say that the place runs like a well oiled machine when the owner is present. The food was still more quantity and quality than anywhere else in town for the cost. Fantastic food. Off service day.

We will go back, but I am not sure they will.

When we complained , we were told there was a new sushi chef and they were trying to push him. They didn't even take our order, which wasn't going to be all sushi. We decided to pay for our drinks and leave. We were very hungry and also disappointed. We have been going there for years and have always loved it. This was the first time in our lives we ever left a restaurant without eating.

Food was fresh and delicious as always! Kan Pai is a favorite of ours.

I went with a group of 4 and we split a few appetizers from the impressive app menu...they all sounded delicious! We shared some rolls from the extensive (but not overwhelmingly extensive) sushi menu. You truly feel like you are in a trendy restaurant which is a treat for Evansville. I was delighted with the food but unimpressed with our server. First of all, he/she (don't want to give any names away) didn't even seem like they were old enough to be serving alcohol and was clueless about the beer and wine selection. The night we were there, the drink special was $2 New Belgium beers and when someone from the table asked if that included all New Belgiums, the server responded, "Umm...I don't think so." And that was it. They didn't go and find out for sure and they had no idea which ones were $2. Turns out they were indeed all $2 which should have been an easy "Yes!" from the server. We later found out that there was a drink menu but we didn't get that when we sat down so I had to ask about wine selection and they were also clueless about that. I also never got the miso that I ordered which wasn't a big deal and I decided not to say anything until we got the bill and it was on there. The server promptly removed it and apologized so that was fine. Overall, the food was delicious but a better trained wait staff would have immensely improved the experience and truly set this restaurant above others.

The waiting service was good, but did leave a bit to be desired. My appetizer arrived after my main course, which is, of course, unacceptable (not really unacceptable, just needed to mention it). The live music, provided my Matthew Sneed, was pretty darn good, in my opinion.

Egg rolls tasted bland, house wine was not good ( Merlot). Entree ok. Very small and cramped tables as space was limited. Probably not worth the drive from Owensboro .
