It was back to school time for the grandkids, so we decided to take them to the Kampai Japanese Steak House. We normally go here for sushi on the boats, but we called and made reservations for the steakhouse - it's best if you do,...More

it's a nice clean place, I was expecting a great dinner, but what I got instead was a tasteless meal. There was a feeling of being rushed with our meal so they can seat the next party.

I used to dine here all the time in the 1980s, 1990s and early 2000s. Haven't been here in a while and stopped by for dinner because I was in the neighborhood. The food is still excellent but the prices have gone way up and...More

Fun restaurant to take the kids for birthday celebrations. Reservations are recommended because it can get crowded. It is more of an upscale steakhouse (with prices to match) that has table side teppanyaki grills to prepare the food in front of your group. Even at...More

I could not love this place more! The food is incredible here! The best scallops ever. Their salad, fried rice, vegatables and entrees are super yummy. Their egg yolk sauce is unbelievable. You will crave this forever! I live over 2000 miles away now so...More
