Best Sushi in LA!!

This is a great place. To start with the staff is amazingly nice. Then the food comes. It is always super fresh but they also always have something really unique. If you are in the area give it a try but do call for reservations because it is busy. Order off the special daily menu and you will not be disappointed. Pricing is in the middle of the road. I have paid much more for much lower quality so for my buck Kanpai is the best. Oh yeah, launch is really reasonably priced too!

The best sushi around

My husband and I live in the neighborhood and go there every week, and we have never been disappointed. The food is excellent. We usually order sushi off of the chef's specials supplemented by rows. The sushi is great and the regular rows are excellent - especially the octopus and yellow tuna. I sometimes sit at the bar and watch the chefs put a big amount of fish in rows that cost only $7. In terms of pricing- it can get expensive but it really depends on what you order! We have never paid over $100 for 2 people. Regular 6 piece sushi rows are $7-10, special rows (usually 8 pieces) $15-20, sushi starts at $6 and goes to $15. They always have great specials selection on sushi for $6-8 for 2 pieces. One thing to be mindful - different chefs do sushi quite differently - some put a lot more wassabi, sometimes the rice is not as sticky. Tell them what you want and how you want the sushi and rolls done and they will do it if you are not entirely happy with the first selection.

Can't get enough

My husband and I live nearby and are always in the mood for Kanpai. The service is fantastic, the staff is always friendly and we are never let down. Yes, it isn't cheap, but cheap sushi usually equals a really unpleasant next day. I've had nothing but wonderful, delicious experiences here and we always recommend Kanpai to our friends. ""Must try"" daily specials are amazing, and don't leave without trying the Pepper Toro sushi.

Terrible Customer Service

If you want terrible service and you don't mind spending a ton of money, then this is the place for you. The owner and wait staff are extremely unfriendly and rude and be prepared to spend no less than $45 for one person at lunch. I would not recommend this restaurant. There are much better restaurants in the LA area that offer better sushi and the service is much better.

One of the best places, great fresh sushi.

I want given a recommendation for this restaurant by a friend. I travel to Japan quite a bit and found this place to be just extremely good. The staff was knowledgeable and so friendly, I felt quite at home. I live near the area and I was amazed that I had never been here.

The rice could be a little better and maybe a tad to expensive.

Yummy sushi, great beer, decent service

I ate here with two other people back in 10/06. This is one of the few sushi joints that actually offers Echigo beer -- far better than the ususal Asahi / Sapporo / Kirin. The food was great and the service was decent. Although the restaurant is fairly small, they still manage to fit people in without being too crowded. Overall, I recommend it for any LAX-area sushi lover!

Some great, some okay

I didn't think some of the sushi was that great, but some of the food was really good, like the Kobe beef, live scallops, Dynamite. I thought the service was fine, but the place was not crowded yet. I thought their blue fin tuna was slightly fishy, the yellowtail was just okay. The fresh water eel was good. I guess it depends on what you order, but I will come back and just order the specialty items. It is pricey, two people $75 each and not a ton of food. The Kobe beef was $35 by itself.

Authentic, rare find fish, creative side dishes

Little on expensive side at $45 - 65 per person without alcohol. Some rare fish, changed daily. Service is usually good. Sushi pizza was interesting and very tasty - must try. Place could fill up pretty quickly.

Go somewhere else!

We had dinner here recently and were so struck by how awful the service was. The food is average and extremely overpriced. But, what ruins the dining experience entirely is the horrible, rude and incompetent service. There are a ton of better Japanese restaurants in the area with better food, fresher sushi, and friendlier staff. Needless to say, we won't be going back and neither will any of our friends.
