We decided to use the catering arm of this restaurant for a dinner party at my house in KL. The " delivery " service wrecked our whole evening. We met with the Business Dev Manager a few days before the event and agreed the menu. On the day of the event, the restaurant called and said that the food would... More

Went to Kampachi at pavilion today. Last visit was 2 years ago. Surprisingly it was very quiet. The food compared to many more new upcoming japanese restaurant is fairly standard and common. However the price has in fact double but standard has not been maintained. Portion is small for a set lunch. Service is not as good as I desire.... More

Make sure you dont miss the dinner buffet at Kampachi. Many different delicious dishes, which wort the price I think. I just didnt liked the sushi and sushimi that night, since I think the fish was not fresh. But exept sushi and sushimi the rest was delicious.

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!
