Good delicious Japanese food though a bit pricey. Service was also good then. Unfortunately, the outlet in Equatorial Hotel no longer exist as the hotel building has been completely demolished and being rebuilt.

Booked this restaurant after being told it was one of the best and newest Japanese establishments in town. What we experienced however was utterly disappointing. Service was slow and haphazard. The waiters/waitresses were pretty much running around like headless chickens. Our table of six was only given four sets of cutlery/napkins. We had to ask them for the other two,... More

Do not be fooled by the impressive facade. The thrill ends there. What was meant to be an exciting evening, all set to enjoy the delights of their Omakase offering for the entire family was met with utter disappointment. The Omakase itself was uninspiring, downright lazy with the basic sushi and grilled dishes which were simply not worthy to be... More

The poorest restaurant I've ever been into in my life. There was nothing special about the food. The waiters were not that attentive. To all who are looking for japanese food I suggest finding another japanese restaurant!

Went there last December with family. They service was good, the food was good, but it's pretty expensive compared to what I can get at the shopping malls. Taste wise, honestly I couldn't really differentiate with other more commercial Japanese restaurants.

Social dinner for two was like being in an illuminated goldfish bowl - industrial standard lighting and wall to ceiling windows meant no privacy and little ambience. Food was generally excellent, sashimi and teppanyaki beef outstanding,mixed tempura somewhat average. Upper quartile pricing - $200 for 2 with limited drinks. Handy if you are in the location but I would not... More

Thank you for dining at the Kampachi. We’ve noted your comment with regard to privacy and wish to advise you that the restaurant has an upper level which will be open later this month. The tables there accord a higher level of privacy that you may find more suitable. At the ground level, we also have a private room that... More

I'm a Japanese food lover and Kampachi has been my # 1 choice in KL for a few years. I discovered the place thanks to a local friend who took me there since he had known the owners for a long time. In fact it was a great experience in terms of freshness of the ingredients and sophisticated ambiance. It's... More
