We were there for a Saturday lunch. Two ordered sushi rolls and one ordered a lunch special - a bento box. Food was good. The teriaki was quite crispy. Prices were fair - about $50 for three including hot tea and iced tea.

We went here based on a "not so close friends" raving review of the place. the sushi did not taste very fresh and the selections were awful with mayonnaise on almost every type of roll. Good place for teenagers to hang out but definitely not for the Sushi connoisseur. Wait staff was very nice --- so I really just blame... More

This restaurant is just not worth it. There are better sushi restaurants in Aliso Viejo. This restaurant has high prices for small portions, obviously owing to its need to cover its monthly overhead in this expensive Town Center location. The staff is not friendly.

Japanese restaurants should always greet you when you come in "Ashaimasen!". The chef behind the counter look like they want to kill you. Service is not so great. If you want a real Japanese experience, try Bistro Anju nearby.

First time here, sat at the sushi bar. Tom was our sushi chef and he was friendly and helpful. Started with edamame and hot sake, both were good. Salmon sushi was great, so was the rainbow roll and tropical roll. Will repeat.

We were in mood for sushi and bam! There was Kanpai Sushi! Such a great atmosphere and everyone was very welcoming. The specials were interesting and we enjoyed everything we ordered. We will be back for sure!

Every time I go, it is always wonderful! Sushi...Original and perfectly prepared. "The Cabo" and "Crunchy" are my favorites. It is a small venue and service is very good.

Wasn't nearly as impressed as others. Food was pretty good and presented nicely. Service was poor. We asked for rolls *prior* to getting our main courses...main courses came first. My friend asked for a salad which didn't show up at all until we asked for it a second time, and after main dishes were served. One of the rolls which... More

Visiting from Manila, Philippines, I spent overnight with my sister at their condo unit at Laguna Niguel, California. We spent the whole morning working on the program for my Mom's 90th Big Birthday Bash at the Diamond Seafood Garden and by the time we finished it was nearly 1:00 p.m. I can feel the hunger pangs so we walked down...
