Kanpai is one of my favorite Japanese restaurants in Melbourne. Their food is very tasty, the service is excellent and the prices are very reasonable. Kanpai did a great job providing takeaway for customers during the lockdowns. See less

I had the worst donburi ever in my life. The whole bowl of the donburi was watery and tasteless. The rice was watery like porridge. The chef also did not even bother to put salt in the cooking. They also use frozen vegetable that become mushy when cooked. So not worth the price!. See less

Like others have mentioned before, this is a not a Japanese restaurant. It's run like a budget Chinese restaurant despite its name and menu. Overpriced food, for minimal quantity. This is capitalism at its best. We had a 'Empress sashimi plate' - $35 - and served with the thinest smallest slices of salmon, which weren't the freshest, sparsely decorated on bundles of shaved radish. There was more radish on the plate than fish. We also had the fried pork and chicken cutlets. Not bad, but how badly can one screw up deep fried food? It literally takes no brains to throw pre-made frozen food into the deep fryer. Minimalist quantity as well. To those who said it's quality over quantity, you've never had proper Japanese cuisine before. One star ⭐ is even too much for a restaurant like this. See less

Really lovely food, which was brought out fast and tasted amazing. Bit squashed in the restaurant. Servings are smallish but I think you get quality over quantity here. See less

The food is super yummy here. I got the beef udon and it had great flavour and was nice on a cool night sitting outside. The service could be a little better and the atmosphere sitting inside was a little awkward and not so pleasant. Sitting outside is much nicer. See less

Good value and great tasting. Plenty of good Japanese staples on the menu, from sushi and sashimi to Ramen and fried noodles. Service is super friendly and super fast. See less

Slightly busy on a Friday night as expected, quickly seated and ordered. The sushi/sashimi standard combination is slightly overpriced but tasted fresh & clean. Highly recommend any of the teppanyaki dishes, was pleasantly surprised by the taste despite the presentation. Also tried the tonkatsu which was definitely one of the better fried Japanese pork dishes we've had in town. Will return to try more of the mains See less
