Try the fancy roll, for the love of all that is glorious. It's amazing! Everything roll we tried had shrimp tempura in it and all were incredible. The best sushi I've had in a long time and the waitress was sweet, even as busy as she was. We went on a Thursday night with reservations. Great experience.

Well, it's a nice neat place and the service is not bad, expect the hostess forgot to include a pen in our bill. I do not quite understand how one could reach the conclusion such as 'sushi is fantastic' based on several American style rolls. They are not even sushi. They are some localized, Americanized variation of sushi which in no ways reflect the restaurant authenticity and the true quality of the the sushi. Sushi is alright, but definitely over priced. The same price I can get much better quality sushi other places. It is probably true that it is good in CWE, but mediocre in the broader region of STL.

With that price I can have x1000 better quality sushi in any asian quality. The taste was not much better than panda express sushi. they charged +20% tips for nothing, they don't even fill my glass. For spice rolls, they just use some chinese hot sauce on the regular salmon rolls.

Went there with a friend and paid 20 dollars total for 6 small slices of random fish. We thought for a moment that the food was complementary, but it was actually our entree. I would have rather given that money to a random homeless person. Don't go here unless you enjoy spending a lot of money for a small "sample" of food.

Used to be better. Sushi is okay, but last time we were there the rice was a bit overdone, resulting in sushi rolls that didn't hold together very well. Might try one more time and will see how it is. For the quality I feel it is a bit pricey, even for sushi.

I can't actually comment on the atmosphere and decor, because I ordered delivery from them a couple times rather than dining in. I called them up on my way home and asked if they deliver sushi or only the standard entrees. Of course, much to my delight, they deliver everything on the menu! It was about $60 for two people to order 5 rolls, but it was well worth it. The sushi was fantastic and the service was excellent. I've been to most of the sushi places in St. Louis, and Kampai definitely ranks up there with the best like Fin and Oishi. Much better than Drunken Fish that's right down the street. If you like eating in a loud hipster restaurant with all undergrads drinking fruity drinks then by all means hit up the Drunken Fish. If you want good Sushi in the CWE, try Kampai!

A neat little place who serves in really neat boats and bento boxes. The food is pretty good and I really enjoyed it. A bit pricey at night but the lunch deal is great.

There are a ton of sushi restaurants in the CWE, but Kampai is by far my favorite. It doesn't have the fanciest "fusion" rolls (Sub-Zero), nor does it serve crazy martinis that sound Japanese (Drunken Fish.) What it does have is simple: authentic sushi with quality fish at very reasonable prices. Where else can you get a large bowl of Chirashi with good quality, large cuts of sashimi including miso and salad for $10 (lunch special) ? Heck, this alone brought me back at least twice a week. With their rolls, they stick mostly to the classics, and they do them well. Good selection of Japanese beer and sake, but this is first and foremost a sushi stop. I have since moved from St. Louis and miss this place terribly. I have eaten in more sushi places than I can count, but Kampai always holds a place dear to my heart.
