This was my 3rd visit in 3 years and I was glad to see that the level of quality Sushi and Japanese dishes is still Excellent. The staff are very experienced and they provide a sincere advice once they get to know what you like and dislike. The place is not cheap, noise level is moderate and the location is... More

This would win my favorite restaurant for this last visit to Beirut. A warm welcoming and guidance to a nice table available by the head waiter (or probably the manager) and then prompt and dedicated service by the staff. Tried the salmon salad and a selection of sushi and all were extremely delicious and to our liking. Conveniently located and... 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, be aware to book in advance, as despite the relatively high price tag it is... More

The best Japanese restaurant in town and one of the best Asian restaurants I've ever tasted in the world! Exquisite Asian cuisine with some jaw dropping specialties.

It used to be my favorite, not after today's lunch. Service was bad, we had to ask for our drinks twice. What a sushi restaurant that ask u if u need soy, or ginger those should come by default !! We don't have to ask for it.

It doesn't matter if you go there during weekdays or weekends, Kampai is always full, and this is due to the great food they serve including some unique appetizers. If you like Sushi, then this is the place to go.

Description
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.
