A popular spot amongst Downtown Dubai frequenters, Kanpai has been described as “a blend of Japanese colours and textures in a modern 21st century setting”. Step inside and you won’t be disappointed, especially when you spy the teppanyaki table from which the skilled executive chef will whip up your dish right in front of you. Pick out your own live lobster before it’s cooked, or try the marinated black cod. Whatever your choice, you’ll find yourself in a relaxed, bar-style ambiance, complemented by tunes spun by DJ Jaye. Dance fans might even spot their hero, BassHunter, tucking into some elegantly presented sushi.
