Watching your meal's preparation is the only way to ensure that your steak isn't accidentally switched with someone else's, which could instill it with an identity crisis, or cause it to accidentally marry its biological potato. Prevent steak mistakes with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of hibachi-grilled steaks, sushi, sake, and more at Kampai Japanese Steakhouse in Mount Prospect. This Groupon is valid for the steakhouse dinner menu only, and is not redeemable on Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day.
Sit back and relax as Kampai's skillful team of chefs comes right to your table, grilling steaks and seafood to your tongue's persnickety specifications. Each entree preps palates with a soup, salad, and shrimp flambé appetizer, while the chef’s knife-juggling skills delight starving eyeballs. Kobe beef combats sushi envy by aspiring to exceptionally high quality, and transforming into an extra-tender filet mignon on the hibachi grill ($31.95). Fresh sushi combos abound, while indecisive diners can opt for a surf and turf combination, such as sirloin steak and salmon teriyaki ($24.95). A cup of sake ($4.50–$8) offers your evening an authentic Japanese cap, while entrees make their own exit with your choice of ice cream or sherbet. See Kampai's website to peruse the full dinner menu, including kids options, and to check out a video preview of your personal chef's mouth-watering moves.
Kampai Japanese Steak House
Chefs at Kampai Japanese Steak House man their hibachis with skill, flipping and twirling their gleaming utensils as they carefully cook meats such as filet mignon, lobster tail, and shrimp. As customers' meals sizzle before their eyes, chefs keep them entertained by telling jokes and anecdotes about their first job as a baton twirler. The floating sushi bar is no less inventive. Wooden boats stocked with fresh pieces of sushi and tiny shuffleboard teams float in an open tank from which diners can pluck their choice of morsels (the sushi menu also offers made-to-order options). Although the food preparation is entertaining, it does not upstage the taste. Kampai's head chef, Suki, has traveled extensively to search out quality ingredients for his sauces, in which he strives to blend Eastern cuisine with worldwide flavors.
