For more than 40 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 Toyosu fish 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. At the latest flagship restaurant located at EQ Kuala Lumpur, the dining experience is taken to new heights with its signature 200-year-old Hinoki wood sushi countertop and new Kappou dining experience that showcases the art of Japanese cuisine. The commitment towards authenticity extends to its selection of sake offered: specially imported artisanal sake directly sourced from select microbrewers in Japan exclusively to Kampachi in Malaysia. Besides the flagship restaurant, Kampachi is also located at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur and Plaza33.
