For nearly 50 years, the award-winning Kampachi has been acknowledged to be Kuala Lumpur’s leading Japanese restaurant. We serve the finest air-flown sashimi from the famed Tsukiji market in Tokyo. Our Ginza-trained master chefs are also very passionate about each plate they serve to ensure guests get a taste of an absolutely authentic dining experience.

Our culinary journey has been humbly graced by the presence of royalty, heads of state and celebrities and it remains today, a favourite dining destination of many. Since our initial restaurant opening at EQ Kuala Lumpur, the Kampachi has added four other standalone restaurants located at Pavilion and Plaza33.
