As an avid lover of Japanese cuisine I felt disappointed and betrayed by the promising menu and positive reviews. How exactly did Kampachi win so many awards? To be brutally honest: I've had better flavored Japanese from shopping malls. Each course was as bland and tasteless as the next. Agedashi Tofu and Miso Soup should be simple enough for an... More

Went there for X-mas and took the X-mas menu - not expensive but a mistake... Food was disappointing and we had heard so many good things. The à la carte food looked much better though. Service however was wonderfully friendly and the manager Mr. Ismail is the nicest person you can imagine. So go for à la carte if you... More

We have been in KL for 5 month of our 6 month assignment and have tried a number of Japanese restaurants and finally managed to visit Kampachi last night and everything was much higher quality than any Japanese we ate. Service was very friendly but not too overpowering, tea came as hot as it should be and all food arrived... More

We ordered the menu... More

The best Japanese buffet in KL that I've been to. We got a cozy room meant for 12 (but somehow squeezed 14). The offerings are mostly tasty, especially the sashimi & beef teppanyaki. Unlimited orange juice & dorayaki make it great for kids too!

One of the better Japanese restaurants in KL. It has maintained its standards over the years.

We used to peruse this once a month, when the pay was in or when we just want to celebrate with Japanese food. The Sunday buffet is sumptuous. The fresh fresh sashimis, tasty sukiyaki, crispy tempuras, and abundant green tea ice cream made us went back again and again. Have not been back for ages, but from what I remember... More

Excellent, authentic and traditional. Was a fav with my father. Definitely one of the best Japanese restaurants in KL and really the only place to eat fugu.
