Sushi is an art ladies and gentlemen! And as such it is only expected that the suhi chef's take special care in creating dishes that are aesthetically appealing. And this takes time! That being said, Kanpai isn't your run of the mill fast food imitation sushi shop! This is the REAL deal! Sushi isn't about "big" peices of fish stupid! It's about the flavor and presentation. Hell, try eating sushi in Japan. No "big" peices because that's not sushi! It's about being fresh! No all you can eat BS here! Who wants to eat old raw fish anyways! Smell it next time... if it smell sweet, you know it's fresh. If it stinks like fish, you better have second thoughts! If you can't believe a guy who grew up with a Japanese mother eating Japanese food everyday, well you can keep going to your "other" places. Enjoy eating whatever it's called as they try to pawn it off as Sushi! But if you're like me and can appreciate what REAL sushi and Japanese food is supposed to taste like, then this is the only place in all of Hampton Roads you should be frequenting! Sure it may cost you a little more, but come on... we're talking the best sushi in town! Look, I've taken family to Kanpai, just off the plane from Japan, to sample the best this area has to offer. I've taken friends here just so they can sample the authenticity. My mother (taught Japanese language in Norfolk public schools, Virginia Beach public schools, and now for the DOD) takes her students here religiously! Try the Hamachi Kama and don't forget the Shoyu (Soy sauce) and you too can experience what it's like growing up Japanese in the States. Oh, and don't forget a bowl of Gohan (rice)! Drink a cup of Ocha (green tea)! And don't forget to tip em' all! They'll remember you, I promise!
Cons: They need to expand!
