Kanpai - Bend Oregon
KanpaiI know that Kanpai has taken a back seat to deep in the minds of many Bendites and I can totally understand why. In my opinion, there is not a great Japanese restaurant in Bend yet and we're still not there. In the past, Kanpai had horrible customer service and I was one of those that received horrid service on my first visit.
But since we love Japanese food we find ourselves going back from time to time....mainly for happy hour. It has been a long time since we received sub par service. In fact, we've really enjoyed the service, portions, and quality at Kanpai in the last year.
We still order off the specials menu and try to stick to happy hour since it's still rather spendy. I doubt you're going to ever find a Sushiland in Bend with how much seafood costs to ship in. I would rent out space above a Sushiland if they ever came to Bend. Mmmm I think I'll drive to Ptown this weekend.
