Description: Kampai is a Japanese sushi restaurant whose name means "cheers" in the mother tongue. Though most guests seek out Kampai for its deliriously delicious sushi, the traditional Japanese cooking (you know, the hot stuff!) Is also noteworthy. Don't miss the siu mai and gyoza dumplings-a few of these melt-in-your-mouth savory bundles, stuffed with your choice of shrimp, fresh crab, chicken, wagyu, or shiitake, will sufficiently whet your appetite for the subsequent course. Here, we recommend the Kampai Maksushi, an assembly of tender scallop wrapped in a lightly-fried panko crust and topped with grilled salmon. Perfection.

Been 4 times in all. Lunch and dinner. Interior and location are elegant. Both give the feeling of a special place. But the food is really basic, some items were even poor in flavour. Tastes very much like a fast food Japanese you might find in a shopping mall. Fish is fresh but not at all top quality. Service is ok. Go there for the ambiance definitely not for the good.

A good place for business lunch, quite formal setup. U won't be disappointed by the food, excellent sushi and Japanese specials, and good attention to detail. I just thought it's a bit overpriced compared to other nice restaurants in beirut...

I highly recommend this place for all you Japanese food lovers ! The diversity of the menu literally hurts (in the sweetest way possible) ! The fusion of the flavors, the place's location in the heart of Beirut, the restaurant's nice decoration, the cleaningness make it a perfect Jap cuisine restaurant ! Waiters are very friendly and helpful.

The food is fantastic, everything on the menu is delicious. Can ask the waiters to recommend some specials as well, they are always glad to suggest some dishes.
