Reviews for Kanpai

Kathleen Emmerson

Our favorite place to eat in Bend. The decor is deceptively simple with subtle details that create an elegant atmosphere perfect for highlighting the food. The service is friendly and informative. Presentation is a feast for the eyes as well as the taste. The sushi is always first rate, as is to be expected. But, if you're in the mood for steak, they have a filet entree which is the best I've ever eaten! We simply cannot recommend this place highly enough!


The edamame were over cooked, served after our sushi arrived. The waitress did not explain the chicken I ordered was an appetizer when I asked what came with it - no explanation on the menu. The sushi was made without care; the rolls were stingy with poor knife cuts. We won’t bother with Kanpai again - there are many other restaurants to enjoy in Bend.


Been to Kanpai twice in the last few months. The maki are generally small for the price. Easy to spend $100 on some maki and nigiri and a few beers and come away hungry. I found the quality and creativity of the food to be good, but it doesn't stand out compared to other sushi in town, even considering that Bend isn't a great town for sushi. I just feel like the cost is high given the small portions and quality. I like the small space and service was good.
