Went to Kampai last night for what turned out to be the best Sashimi we've had in the area. Started with calamari, then medium sashimi boat and a dragon roll The calamari was prepared perfectly... not over cooked and the coating was nicely seasoned. THe...More

Favorite Japanese restaurant! Sushi is great. Try the gyoza and the spicy soup. Tempera is light never greasy. Been going here for years ( even at the mountain location - before it moved) always happy with food and service!

Ate here and found the restaurant to be nothing special. Food was tasty but the portions small. Entrees were a bit expensive.

Excellent! Fresh, quality ingredients skillfully prepared by open-view chef who greats diners with a casual, friendly "HELL-oh-OH?" as they enter. Attentive service, balanced seasoning, mouth-watering dishes prepared to perfection. They have pride in their work. Tasty complimentary miso soup. Calamari, Beef Teriyaki perfect!

I enjoyed à la carte dining of mackerel, salmon, and tuna sashimi along with the spicy scallop roll. Aside from the Saba ( mackerel) which seemed a bit dry... The sashimi was some of the freshest I have had. And I think their spicy scallop...More

Kampai offers what I consider somewhat above average sushi. Nirigi are hearty sized and reasonably fresh. They offer some unique sushi with garlic cream rolls baked as an example. The service is lovely, but I personally believe their prices are too high for the quality...More
