“Good Food, Great Service”
Reviewed 11 July 2013

I decided to try and find a Japanese restaurant near my hotel and luckily, I found Kanpai just 4 blocks away. (Note: it is set back off Wilson Blvd., just around the corner from Fort Meyer Dr. so you have to look for it.) After a hearty welcome by the staff, I sat down at the sushi bar and ordered a Sapporo. The Sushi was fresh and tasty, but somewhat on the small side. My spicy Tuna hand roll was also very good but on the slim side. My best pick was the Raman. Lots of chicken, pork, and beef, great noodles with seaweed, green onions and a touch of spice. The service was outstanding.

“You get what you pay for”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

The sushi was cheap and you paid for that in poor quality and taste. The rolls were mediocre at best; the rice was undercooked and the fish tasted old and dry. With poor quality like this I would expect to pay much less. However, the service was prompt and friendly, and the atmosphere is trendy and modern. This is not a good place to go on a date, especially with all of the good restaurants in Arlington, Rosslyn, and DC.

“Not much flavor”
Reviewed 16 April 2013 via mobile

Most of the items on the sushi bare are pre-packed from "the world foods". Asked for a roll without rice.... Thought I was speaking Korean. Very basic rolls at best. even the high end special roll had "krab" inside.... If you ask what that is, then maybe you will like this place
