This would win my favorite restaurant for this last visit to Beirut. A warm welcoming and guidance to a nice table available by the head waiter (or probably the manager) and then prompt and dedicated service by the staff. Tried the salmon salad and a...More

The best sushi we had in Lebanon and so far in many places outside it. Definitely try it! Although it is rather pricey (a set of 4 rolls costs around $15-20), it will be worth every dime you spend! Highly recommend visiting this place! However,...More

It doesn't matter if you go there during weekdays or weekends, Kampai is always full, and this is due to the great food they serve including some unique appetizers. If you like Sushi, then this is the place to go.

One of my favorite places for sushi in Beirut. The restaurant is really posh and the food is amazing, especially some of their specialty rolls and salads. A bit on the pricey side but worth the splurge.

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.
