“[My parents have] been taking me to Kanpai since I was an infant in a baby carrier. Usually we try to eat in whenever we can, but on Easter Sunday this year, we ordered a big meal for takeout. The food was delicious and the portion sizes are always plentiful. It wasn't the same without their amazing chefs and waitstaff making the food right in front of us, but it was a familiar taste that made us feel much better for Sunday dinner.”
