Great Sushi

A nice restaurant centrally located in Beirut, fit for a nice family lunch, friends dinner or even a date. You will rarely enjoy background music at Kampai though as the ambient noise takes over, but you will definitely enjoy the food; which makes the whole experience excellent.

After a few days of spectacular Lebanese food at Mhanna and Puncho we were ready for something different. Kampai was as good as the best sushi I've had anywhere and for anyone familiar with prices in Dubai or Europe, it is a relative bargain.

Great fresh Sushi. The food variety is great, the spicy salmon salad, crab salad and rock shrimps are amazing. The makis are fresh and have a great variety. Staff is bery friendly and professional. Make sure to book in advance as its always fully booked.

After having discovered this place to be the highest rated Sushi place in Beirut, I had to try it two days ago. I walked in without reservation and was seated immediately at the Bar, although they were very busy. First disappointment: they filled me a glas of water (without at least asking if I like it still). As always, I... More

Last week i went to try Kampaii after reading so many reviews about it, however mine does not have a happy ending. First upon reservation, i asked them about parking options, they did not mention about park-meters just across instead they said the only solution was valet parking; this was again affirmed when we called for indication the day we...

I am an LA native so I have had my share of real, authentic tasting Japanese cuisine. Other sushi restaurants in Beirut are just subpar compared to Kampai. Anything you order is bound to be akin to something you would eat on the coastal cities of Japan, and the Kobe beef tastes like heaven. Although it's pricier than the chain... More

Best Fresh sushi in the heart of Beirut, wide menu variety, good service and well decorated. Can be slightly pricey though.

I went there with my family, it was a bit crowded but the service was good and the food was even better! It is a bit pricy but worth the visit.
