Description: If you would like an evening of good fun, good food, and good friends, make a reservation at Kanpai of Tokyo. Kanpai of Tokyo is the perfect place to take a group of friends or family for a great food and show. Kanpai of Tokyo is a Japanese restaurant that prepares all its food on Hibachi Tables that seat eight to ten people. Diners are treated to an extraordinary demonstration of food preparation by highly trained chefs. After watching the chef slice, chop, flip, and separate meat, seafoods, chicken, and vegetables, one wonders that they still have all their fingers! In addition to Teppanyaki, Kanpai of Tokyo offers an exciting array of gourmet quality Sushi, expertly prepared and beautifully presented for your viewing and dining pleasure. Kanpai of Tokyo also offers many of the same items for lunch that they do for dinner, at a reduced price and in less time.

We just left due to a BIG cock roach ran across the grill and onto the table. Other people at our table saw it and was disgusted. We notified the manager. He admitted that people complain of roaches but when the pest control comes out they find nothing. So there you have it, if you want to eat on bugs feel free to dine here.

We LOVE Kanpai! The ginger sauce is far better than the other hibachi places...the fried rice is better...the salad dressing is better! Everything is better!

We would rather drive 30 minutes to eat at Kanpai than 10 to eat at a hibachi place closer by. We try to only go there at lunch time because the prices are FAR less for the exact same thing.

You won't be disappointed!

Kanpai of Tokyo in Chattanooga is one of our favorite locations for special occasions such as birthdays. On our most recent visit our chef and server were both very good. Sometimes the servers are not available, but during this visit, the server kept the entire table taken care of as needed. I hate to wait for a drink refill or to have my salad or soup dishes in the way.

The chef was good - his show was what they always do, but he seemed to enjoy it which made it more interesting for the guests. Our food was cooked as requested and the rice and veggies were properly cooked and tasty as usual.

The food portions are large - we always have leftovers for the next day lunch. :-)

My only complaint about the restaurant is that it needs a complete overall cleaning and furnishing upgrade. The seating area was clean on the surface, but looks like it needs a full cleaning.

Most of the Japanese restaurants around Chattanooga are fairly similar. However, Kanpai is consistently better than the others in my opinion. The others are good as well, but I always have a good meal at Kanpai. The service and front desk staff are the weakest points to me. These areas are inconsistent but usually good. The chefs are usually outstanding.
