Good food and good value. The edamame were excellent and we shared a teryaki chicken main. Delicious miso soup and great service, we would come here again.

Delicious sushi!! Ranges from 80-250+ cordobas per roll. Many vegetarian options. The owner is from Japan and was really nice. It's close to the main market area which was convenient.

Despite two staff missing (day after easter...) and quite a long waiting time, we had a great dinner with rolls as starter and pork or chicken as main. Great flavors, I highly recommend this restaurant.

Gonna keep this review short cause there’s nothing else to say other than the food and drinks are amazing! The owner is also a really cool guy. Love the ambiance. It’s small and looking great. Best sushi in town for sure!

We were very surprised what awesome sushi you can find in Central America. All the vegetarian sushi we tried was brilliant and very delicious. Nice restaurant, very friendly owner, perfect spot to escape buritos and gallo pinto ;-)

This is the best Japanese restaurant here in Granada and would be quite good anywhere. Its enchanting chef/owner, Masaya (where my wife is from) gravitated to Nicaragua to visit his namesake. He makes excellent sushi rolls to your order (chosen ingredients) but I was happiest...More

I just ate at Kanpai and the food was delicioso! I had the tonkatsu and it was very good and served like in Japan! It came with miso soup which was equally as good. I am somewhat critical of Japanese food, as I am Japanese,...More

Authentic Japanese food. Fresh sushi, tempura, sake and more. Japanese chef. International standards. Beautiful surroundings with ambiance and modern decor. A safe, well lit, 5-minute walk from the main tourist area (Calzada Street). Great for couples, groups and business meetings or just one. Lots of local information and advice on traveling around.
