They put on a good show. The food is about average, although expensive. The quality does not match. My wife and I have had better food at other restaurants. If you want a show it's a good place to go to. Probably won't go back.

Sushi side-This is a traditional Japanese owned sushi bar which is hard to find. My husband is Japanese and grew up in Tokyo and this place reminds him of home. I personally have eaten here for 17 years and Satchi has been waiting tables the whole time. While I am not a sushi eater, my husband really enjoys the sushi... More

I used to enjoy going to Kampai many years ago, but the last year has been anything BUT pleasant. The woman who seats you is just downright rude. She acts as if she is doing you a favor just allowing you into their establishment. She is a real turnoff, and the main reason I won't go back. The food is... More

We went here for dinner using a Groupon. We ordered the Filet and Golden Shrimp. The filet was very tender and cooked to perfection. The Golden Shrimp, tasty as always. All the food was very good except the Fried Rice was very bland. It definitely needs to be flavored up and more eggs added. "John", our chef was good and... More

The service was good and food was delicious here. We haven't been in a long time, and thought they still had the sushi boats, but they were next door at the adjoining restaurant. Still, we had the sushi, and it was delicious. The show on the tables was on par with most Japanese steak houses we have been to, We... More

I have been to this location twice and by far, this is the best hibachi restaurant I have been to. The quality and freshness of the ingredients certainly will not disappoint you. They also do groupon and living socials deals quite often which help bring some of the cost down.

Teppanyaki is the key to their success. Skilled Chefs preform cute, quick stunts involving your meal preparation. Fun for the whole family, it is pricy but where else do you get a personal chef for the evening meal.

This Japanese steak house is staffed and run by Chinese. The Fancy cooking and chef antics that are shown in the advertisement were missing. Food was just OK. I would need an incentive to back there.

Great food fun place prices are high, but it is expected at a Japanese restaurant! yummy!! I love the chefs here make my kids laugh and my husband and I as well. This place is best for special occasions since it is pricey well worth it like I said if you are willing to spend the cash.
