The family went out for dinner at Kanpai as we usually do a couple times a month. We have never had a problem there, sometimes are better than others. Never had a bad time there. Our reservations were for 7:30....As for the times we live in, half the people didn't show up for work. It was after 8:00 before we... More

This is a japanese hibachi restaurant. You may wait up to 30 minutes on a regular day before your order is taken. Your soup and salad come immediately after the order luckily. Depending on your chef your food can be cooked to perfection. It helps if you let them know "hey that's cooked enough for me" or have them cook... More

Unless you have a group with you, go someplace else for lunch. Otherwise you may be sitting a half hour (in hopes the table will be filled I suppose) before your order is taken. The food was good but the atmosphere has changed - no Japanese looking wait staff or cooks anymore. I think our cook was Middle Eastern -... More

CROSS-CONTAMINATION at its finest! This place is disgusting! The food is average, but the hibatchi is an illness waiting to happen. If it is this bad while cooking in front of you, imagine what goes on in the kitchen!! *BEWARE*

The posted hours are until 2:00 for lunch. I live about an hour from Kanpai but wanted to have my birthday lunch there. We drove from home, got there at 1:30. When we went in we were told they closed early because they got busy. I feel that they should stay open posted hours. We ate somewhere else but it... More

We had to wait close to an hour even though we had made reservations. With hungry kids, it got very stressful quick. Once we sat down, Lee came apologized for the wait and took very good care of us. The food was delicious! I highly recommend the place! I guess we had just come on a off day.

Our server was very friendly and great with our children and was the only saving grace to an otherwise horrible dining experience. Service was slow even though the restaurant was not busy. Their blender was broken, they were out of yellowtail, I asked for tuna nigiri but the guy making sushi made a tuna roll instead. There were many mistakes... More

My family and I love this place. We have tried several hibachi restaurants but this is our favorite. Special occasions or just whenever we have a craving, we don't mind the 75 mile drive. They are one of the very few Japanese restaurants that offer fried cabbage (we always ask for extra) and the fried rice, chicken, steak, shrimp, yum-yum... More

No joke. The last three visits, either me or one of my kids have been splattered by the chef. Ruined one tie. Startled and frightened one child who is afraid of the fire already. The food is decent, but pretty redundant. Still, beats its competitors of the same sort in Chattanooga.

If you would like an evening of good fun, good food, and good friends, make a reservation at Kanpai of Tokyo. Kanpai of Tokyo is the perfect place to take a group of friends or family for a great food and show. Kanpai of Tokyo is a Japanese restaurant that prepares all its food on Hibachi Tables that seat eight to ten people.

Diners are treated to an extraordinary demonstration of food preparation by highly trained chefs. After watching the chef slice, chop, flip, and separate meat, seafoods, chicken, and vegetables, one wonders that they still have all their fingers!

In addition to Teppanyaki, Kanpai of Tokyo offers an exciting array of gourmet quality Sushi, expertly prepared and beautifully presented for your viewing and dining pleasure. Kanpai of Tokyo also offers many of the same items for lunch that they do for dinner, at a reduced price and in less time.
