Special occasion place where the food selections are wonderful. The shrimp makes you come back over and over again. Service is fine and the prices are a little bit high. Drinks are large and many good choices. So try it, you'll like it.

Great food and always have a good time at Kampai. Steak is always tender and well prepared, seafood is fantastic as is the sushi. I could drink the salad dressing because it's so good!! Don't forget to have mochi for desert, it's awesome!

We ate in the Sushi Bar. We enjoyed every dish served. Sushi goes around the chef station in little boats. You pick the individual sushi dishes that you want. Don't see it? The chef will make it for you. Everything is fresh and delicious.

We always enjoy the culinary show and delicious fresh food prepared for us at Kampai Japanese Steak House. Counter tables for 8 surround a grill where the food is prepared right in front of you with great flourish. If your party is less than 8, you will be seated with another party for fill out the table. It is wise... More

Better than average Japanese Steak House. Food is very tasty, chefs are very entertaining as well. I've been to other places (chains and individuals places as well) and Kampai always stands out above the rest. The golden shrimp is very good, albeit very rich. I usually go for the garlic shrimp but like to share with someone who gets the... More

The food is awesome. I don't even bother going to other places like this because they don't compare. The golden shrimp is delicious and melts in your mouth. I pair that with a filet which is cooked to perfection. The owner and team are wonderful. Many of the staff have worked there for 10-20 years. Join the birthday club for... More
