Very much enjoyed our meal here, the service was brilliant, the food was simply amazing. The only negative was my side order was forgotten however this was never added to the bill and would have been an eyes bigger than belly situation so worked out for the best. Thankyou Kampai. Will definitely be coming back

Our servers were all very helpful and had good recommendations on the menu. The food was DELICIOUS and when the bill came we were pleasantly surprised that it was less than we expected.
The cocktails were good too - especially the Margarita! !

Made a mistake with the food but was corrected quickly and it was tasty. We were placed near the kitchen so it was very noisy and staff were constantly around us talking. Waiters were leaning over the Mrs placing glasses on the windowsill. If we were placed in a better spot I'm sure it would have been a much better experience.

The service at this restaurant is fine. All the staff are pleasant and friendly. However, the food is nothing special and feels like an attempt to make a variety of Japanese dishes by someone who is not an expert. As it is situated in Knutsford the price is quite expensive for what it is.

Food was excellent, and although the service was friendly it was slow throughout. We had to ask to order after we’d been waiting 20 mins, then another 45 for the food to arrive.

The most beautiful array of sushi, cooked by a chef with more than 25yrs in the industry. Food is freshly cooked to order, so the wait time is slightly higher than average. The staff were incredibly friendly and attentive, and the ambience was perfect; not too loud (or too quiet) with warm lighting; Kampai is a little jewel of a restaurant in the heart of pretty Knutsford.

Food was really tasty however the desert and cocktails were horrible which left us with a bad feeling (we had cocktails with dessert).
The staff were great until they had served our mains and then we felt like they had forgotten we were there. There was also a strange smell of drains all evening which was quite unpleasant. However I would definitely return as the starters and mains were great!

We were welcomed when we arrived & seated quickly at our table … unfortunately for our first experience we realised quite quickly we were in the ‘kitchen’ service walk way. That aside our waiters were pleasant & the service was efficient. The food was lovely apart from the kamikaze chick wings which seemed old and extremely salty. We had a lovely bottle of wine & shared a pud. All in all we had a nice evening.

I’m so glad that sushi has come to knutsford. The decor & atmosphere are lovely. They have the lighting just perfect. Service is so friendly & very attentive.
Food is fabulous. Lots to choose from. Plenty of hot dishes too so if you’re dining with a non-sushi lover, they are also well catered for.
Will return regularly to get my sushi fix

Restaurant decor is beautiful, very pretty. Staff attentive, but not overly so. Food really lovely.

Sadly the area wasn’t very clean, the table was sticky! The menu was really dirty, some pages were so sticky you didn’t want to touch them. It just made us feel really uncomfortable, and for this reason I can’t give 5 stars. But I will return.

The food was exceptional! I am a gluten free vegan and the chef came to my table and offered me a wide range of options all of which were above and beyond! My friends also said their food was incredible!

The sushi was so fresh, delicious and reasonably priced- we had the salmon lovers platter to share and prawn katsu curry. Everything was well presented and we had a lovely and attentive server who we enjoyed chatting to.

The side dishes were good too, we had the cauliflower and the broccoli which had lots of flavour. I will definitely be back again in future to try the ramen.

It was our first time in this new to Knutsford restaurant; we asked for a selection that the team would recommend and it was delicious; will be back to test more of the menu!!

Could be a bit quicker with the drinks service but its all new so I'm sure it will be better next time!!

Overall, very enjoyable however, the music volume was too loud. It made the diners raise their voices to have a conversation with their friends and therefore everyone else in the restaurant had to raise their voices even more. Simple solution, turn the volume down!

As soon as we heard about Kampai opening in Knutsford we were looking forward to visiting. The evening was really good; the decor is lovely, we had delicious drinks (try the Geisha Martini) the food was excellent and the staff were all very helpful and friendly. We look forward to our next visit.

We were spoilt for choice with the menu, so we took a tapas style approach and didn’t regret it! Everything was ridiculously tasty. It’s a family affair - our host’s husband is the chef and she was proudly telling us about her daughters. The service and kindness was exceptional. Will be returning as often as possible.
