    I came here on Valentine’s Day with two of my girl friends. The service was amazing, I wish I got the waitress name, but she was a small brunette lady from the Philippines and her service was outstanding, we ordered a few cocktails, a couple of starters and a main each. The food came quickly and displayed beautifully, any member of staff we spoke to was kind and interested in any conversation we had with them. The food was delicious, I would highly recommend and I would go back.

    We expected a Japanese restaurant, instead we were served by Italians listening to Spanish sounding music and greeted with a Caribbean tasting cocktail. However, the food was good and hot though more like a fusion restaurant, not a Sushi restaurant.

    It was very disappointing as my main course didn’t arrive and service was no where to be seen for more than 30 minutes. I wasn’t impressed at all.

    Food quality was good but the service was very slow given the amount of people in the restaurant and we never actually revived two of our sides (these were taken off the bill) A number of drinks options unavailable possibly because they don’t usually open on a Monday but still not acceptable for a restaurant of this cost tier. Ambiance was ok but front part of the restaurant is very cold.

    Because we booked with Opentable we were seated in a very busy walkway, under fluorescent lights right next to the kitchen and waiter station. I asked whether we could move to better table and was told because we’d booked using Opentable the tables available were restricted and so wasn’t possible!! It was very busy night and sat so close to the kitchen detracted from the ambience. The overall vibe wasn’t authentic Japanese at all as all the staff were Italian and most (apart from one) surly. I ordered a vegetarian starter which when it came was with chicken, the waiter changed it, eventually, but needed some convincing it wasn’t what I had ordered. The main course (pumpkin katsu and dragon rolls) were ok but didn’t taste like fresh Japanese cuisine, more like warmed up from the supermarket We were asked whether we’d like desserts but no one returned to take the order so we left without - no loss. Understandably it was a very busy night but got the impression they were overwhelmed and just wanted to get the food on the tables and us out as quickly as possible. Which suited us. We won’t be back.

    Service was awful. Got our order wrong which happens but then to forget part of our starters and remember when they asked us if we were ready for mains which I am pretty sure they also forgot about. More interested in setting up empty tables then actually remembering we asked for plates and cutlery 3 times. The meal took 2 and a half hour and my food was still in front of me at the end with my starter plates that werent cleared I might add when I finally caught the attention to pay. 10% a terrible experience. Apologised as it was busy. Thats no excuse its a small place and not that many covers. It is a shame as it looks nice from the outside

    The starters were lovely, but the courses were far too rushed. The ramen was really disappointing! We felt like we were being rushed through all our courses, which really spoilt our experience and meant we didn’t have time to enjoy the food.

    Amazing food, which looks as beautiful as it tastes. The service was above and beyond, even making cocktails that weren’t in their drinks menu. This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend and it’s the first time I’ve been but most definitely won’t be the last. Well done guys, just what Knutsford needed

    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

    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.

    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.
