The restaurant has a nice decor and a hip clientele (which I can almost guarantee will never include actual Japanese people). The rolls were OK. But the noodles and fried rice were absolutely sickly sweet with sugar. It's too much, guys. The fried rice was...just rice, sugar and lashings of soy sauce with a few prawns; that's not proper fried rice (which should not be served in a Japanese restaurant anyways). We also had the teriyaki beef; the flavour was OK but half the pieces of beef were totally raw, and the waiter clearly didn't care. (I will say the veg that came with the beef was tasty). The panko shrimps were OK. The "Japanese" green tea was some Lipton blend that is NOT Japanese sencha or anything like it. I would also avoid the over-breaded and tasteless tempura. My suggestion to the mgmt would be to shorten the menu and–crazy suggestion here– just have solid Japanese food. (Tom Yum soup, stir fry, fried rice, in a restaurant called Kampai? Why not add Indian curries while you are at it?) It's a classic problem common to many mediocre restaurants world-wide: trying to offer too much choice. In so doing, they do far too little. Maybe the other reviews are indicative of how much Beirutis love this place, but I say there are just too many other sensational restaurant choices in Beirut.More

Kampai is a restaurant not to miss in Beirut; during your stay if you are craving asian cuisine; make sure to visit Kampai for lunch or dinner. The variety of food is extra ordinary.
