Kanpai is a great place to hold your next event. Our management team has over 30 years of experience in holding events with some of the world’s best organizations. Whether you’re looking for something offsite or at our place, we have the services to meet your needs.
When it comes to events, we’ve got you covered. A beautifully designed space coupled with amazing food and wicked cocktails make for an awesome outing.
We offer a diverse menu including an array of dishes we have scaled down for our catered and cocktail events… from skewers to aburi sushi, popcorn chicken, bao and ceviche. Our team can work with you to create a custom menu or select our favourites as part of your event.

In addition, we can provide custom cakes or pastries, floral arrangements, a dj or a/v for presentations… and more. And don’t forget our famous curated playlist of the greatest hip hop tunes this side of the Taiwan Strait!
Some of our past events include:

For groups of 20 to 30 people, the back half of our restaurant is a perfect spot for a gathering. Situated right in front of the kitchen, this area allows you the option to be a part of the action yet still have your own area to socialize. As the kitchen prepares your various menu items, they place them directly on the counter for your guests to enjoy.
For larger groups, we can also provide a buy out for the day or evening. Buy outs are available Sunday to Wednesday. Our buyout rate starts at $600 per hour (depending on the date and time) with a minimum of 4 hours, plus service charge and taxes. The buyout is based on a guaranteed minimum spend where you would be charged the greater of the minimum spend or the actual spend before service charge and taxes.
Kanpai has its own intimate event venue at 114 Geary Ave, in the up and coming artistic district of Toronto’s Junction area. With soaring ceilings and an open loft feel, we are able to accomodate parties of 70 people seated or 125 standing. We also use this space to hold our team building master chef and other cooking classes, please contact us for more details on these events.
In addition, we have relationships with many other venues in the city, and are a preferred caterer to the recently renovated St James Cathedral Centre at Church and Adelaide. You can rest assured that when it comes to your next event, we have the ability to create something enjoyable and memorable, including coordination all the details such as custom curated food, craft cocktails and other libations, lighting, decor, seating, a/v, etc.
Our team can work with you to create the perfect menu, whether the need be for a cocktail party with passed hors d’ouvres or a seated dinner. As well, we have a great deal of experience dealing with allergens and can accommodate most dietary requests.
Every event is different so it’s difficult to provide exact figures but generally speaking we suggest a budget of $40 to $100 per person for food and depending on whether you prefer a host bar or a cash bar, soft drinks and/or alcoholic drinks would be in addition.
