We celebrated our son's birthday last night at Kanpai. My filet mignon was perfect, it melted in my mouth and the lobster tail was wonderful. My son loved the volcano and the chu chu train. The chef was entertaining and the service was great. The people there were friendly. Oh I have a cocktail which named " For Real", I love it. We will come back!
So I'm pretty new to the review scene, but I figured I would give my few cents.
I love Kanpai, and I love the food. It's a great to take my two kids away from the ordinary fast food and get some live entertaining chefs cooking right in front of you. My kids loved the fact that the chef was very friendly and funny! He was flippin shrimp, juggling lemons, and making smiley faces on the food.
I'm so happy to see my little kids laughing and playing. I'll come again!!!!
Oh btw, i had the Steak Ribeye and Shrimp and it was delicious! Whatever is in the red sauce is simply amazing!
Love Ya KANPAI!!!
We went based off a family member's suggestion who said it was good and actually better than Arigatios. Let me say if you are an Arigatos lover stick to it, they are far above Kanpai on anyday. Would I go back? No I would not because it was not all that wonderful and the restauraunt is really cramped.

Like the originator, Benihanna, Kanpai boasts chefs who cook your food at your table. I'm sure there are better showman than our chef was but the food tasted great. We felt rushed to leave by the waitress because of the crowded Saturday night dinner service, which we found a bit tacky. She repeatedly asked whether we wanted to wrap our food to go (which began 10 minutes after the chef finished cleaning up). If you don't know what the show is supposed to look like, it was adequate but if you go, go for the food.

I don't know if the other reviewer went to the right Restaurant or not, but obviously he/she did not go to Kanpai.
I went with a family of four, I had the Shrimp/Scallop/Salmon for like 16 dollars; and after the Chef (very friendly and very funny) finished making the food, I had about a mound of Fried rice, more than half a dozen scallops, vegetables and rice overfilling the plate, freshly cooked shrimp, and a very nicely cooked salmon. Anywhere else and you would pay a premium for this kind of food. Def!!! worth every penny. I joked with my brother telling him that he had enough food feed a third world country. (By the way, I usually eat quite a lot, and when my Brother and I can't finish a meal, it usually means its more than a LOT)
I recommend going early. I went there two days ago and from 4pm-6:30pm is the best time; but after that and it gets incredibly busy.
Staff members are incredibly nice and friendly, hostess and hosts are straightforward and prompt

Thought this would be a nice Japanese place but they didn't even serve Sushi! What kind of Japanese rest. is this? The ribeye steak was so thin and they were stingy with the veggies. The food was average at best but the chef was very friendly and accommodating and I like the bananas at the end. Go eat Japanese food somewhere else!
