Got back in town on Sunday from Matthew our house got clipped. Called Kanpai on Monday and could not put order in over phone. Stopped in put in my order in, then others came in behind the man before me. After about 30 minutes then people after me were getting their orders. Finally asked the guy that took our orders...

To start, I did give them the benefit of the doubt and visited twice. The first time, my SO and I went for sushi...I absolutely love sushi. It was ok, we weren't overly impressed, but later that night, we both were sick. Strike 1. The second time I went by myself and ordered the teryaki hibatchi-style chicken and rice. Plenty... More

Took Parents to dinner for Father's Day, good decision. Service was fine, the restaurant not overly crowded and the food very good. Steak & scallops, Steak & Lobster, combinations were the choice of the evening... Soups were delicious, salads satisfactory, and the meals wonderful. Will be going again, dinner for four, just under $70. The lobster & scallops were just... More

Sitting here waiting and waiting and waiting. No owner, no manager or any boss to complain to. Second time in 2-months this has happened, but our last time to dine here. Top bad because the food is usually good but the understaffed service is horrible! If you see "Help Wanted" sign on front door turn around and run away as... More

Today I decided to give old Kanpai another shot. The first time we went the service was invisible. It took forever to get a waiter to take our order and there was barely anyone in there. Low and behold it happened again tonight. I sat at my table with my two children and watched our waitress talk, gab, and even... More

Decent selection of sushi in a pleasant and friendly environment. Many dishes tailored to the taste of non-typical sushi eaters that prefer things like California Roll, or cream cheese in sushi rolls in my opinion. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that, but when you're hoping for high quality, authentic sushi, this fell a bit short for me. Chicken yakisoba... More

Another solid restaurant on Wilmington Island is Kanpai. The sushi is good and they serve an impressive array of other dishes. The food is always good and the service is fast and attentive. To be honest, I do not have a favorite here, everything is appealing on the menu. You can't go wrong eating here while on Wilmington Island. The... More
