Kanpai Sushi

8-10 Grindlay Street, EDINBURGH, EH3 9AS

1 rosettes

Just around the corner from the Usher Hall and the Traverse Theatre, Kanpai is a diminutive but elegant sushi place with an open kitchen counter where you can watch its well-drilled artistry take place. Attention to fine detail, and exemplary freshness are the hallmarks of wakame salad with soy and seaweed dressing, seared tuna in home-made miso, delicately battered squid tempura, melt-in-the-mouth nigiri scallops, white snow crab with onions in ponzu, and the moreish Kanpai special roll. This is an artfully presented king prawn wrapped in sticky rice, with sweet bean curd and avocado. Make sure to check out the list of sake and shochu spirits.
