Springing up in Suria KLCC, Kampai is KL's first restaurant that offers three types of omakase feasts in one restaurant - select from teppanyaki, sushi and sashimi, or yakiniku.

Choose your own culinary adventure at Kampai: Each experience has its own dedicated space in a vibrant venue with ceiling-high, first-floor views of KLCC Park.

Watch Kampai's teppanyaki chefs showcase fiery skills with Hokkaido seafood in playful fashion; get an intimate glimpse of how sumptuous sushi is meticulously crafted; or marvel at how Japanese A5 Miyazaki beef is grilled to perfection at your yakiniku table.

Freshly launched this year, Kampai is still one of Suria KLCC's best-kept secrets - find the entrance at the street level inside The Oriental Park restaurant or on the first floor in Isetan.

Our first stop is the teppanyaki open kitchen, where a cheerful brigade led by chef Saburo helms the long counter, with a spectacular wide-window scene of KLCC Park behind them.

Fresh, naturally colourful produce forms the foundation of the Yamanakako top-tier teppanyaki omakase (RM698++), with the earth's bountiful harvest of seasonal vegetables brought to the table with artisanal allure.

A trio of starters follows - true to the philosophy of omakase, the chefs rely on what's best each week, be it monkfish liver with ikura or beef rolled with kombu.

The highlights of the teppanyaki omakase meal comprise Hokkaido-sourced seafood and Miyazaki A5 beef. The Steamed Grilled Lobster with Kampai Sauce is fleshy and juicy with a buttery, briny richness.

Grilled A5 Miyazaki Japanese Wagyu Beef wrapped with Foie Gras is a decadent delight - one of our favourite indulgences of 2024 so far.

For steak enthusiasts, the climactic course is the pairing of A5 Miyazaki Japanese Wagyu Sirloin and Zabuton slices with Grilled Seasonal Vegetables from Hokkaido. Both cuts of beef provide a distinctive perspective, magnificently marbled, triumphantly seared on the teppan.

The Kampai Signature Garlic Fried Rice elevates the conventional fried rice with a fragrant smokiness infused into every gorgeous golden grain.
