Tasty sushi in Beirut that was recommended by many. Went there with a friend and sat next to the bar area. Place was packed and quite noisy. Food was tasty and service good but wasn't impressed by the overall experience. Staff seemed overworked and drained....More

After a busy business day we ended up at Kampai and enjoyed a 5 star Japanese in Beirut. Many sushi and sashimi varieties and all were delicious. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was great.

I am a frequent visitor of the restaurant and yesterday took out the family for an early dinner. It was a complete disappointment. The sushi was ok however the chicken teppanyaki was below standard. Chicken was over cooked and slightly burned. Hygiene was lacking by...More

The best sushi we had in Lebanon and so far in many places outside it. Definitely try it! Although it is rather pricey (a set of 4 rolls costs around $15-20), it will be worth every dime you spend! Highly recommend visiting this place! However,...More

Kampai is a Japanese sushi restaurant whose name means "cheers" in the mother tongue. Though most guests seek out Kampai for its deliriously delicious sushi, the traditional Japanese cooking (you know, the hot stuff!) Is also noteworthy. Don't miss the siu mai and gyoza dumplings-a few of these melt-in-your-mouth savory bundles, stuffed with your choice of shrimp, fresh crab, chicken, wagyu, or shiitake, will sufficiently whet your appetite for the subsequent course. Here, we recommend the Kampai Maksushi, an assembly of tender scallop wrapped in a lightly-fried panko crust and topped with grilled salmon. Perfection.
