What You'll Get
Raw fish, like snowballs, must be rolled with care before being thrown at a school superintendent for refusing to call a snow day. Enjoy well-crafted, conveniently projectile edibles with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of sushi and Japanese fare for dinner at Kampai. This Groupon is only valid at the Columbia location.
Kampai populates chopsticks with a menu of Japanese flavors, which culinary craftsmen roll into sushi, stir-fry with noodles, and brush onto grilled meats. Appetizer-hounds can nibble on spicy gyoza dumplings ($5) or feast on octopus salad ($5) until they ingest enough suction cups to hang from the rear window of their car. For one-bite wonders, diners can mouth-dive into the Norwegian mackerel sashimi ($13), the dynamite maki roll with spicy salmon and pickle radish ($8), or the specialty kampai roll's bundle of tempura shrimp, avocado, smelt roe, and spicy tuna ($9). In addition to mini sushi morsels, the kitchen employs skilled giants to prepare larger entrees such as gyu yaki soba noodles with shrimp ($12).
Accented with wood floors, booths, and an expansive wall mural, Kampai's interior augments exotic meals with a modern ambience. In the upstairs bar, mixologists craft cocktails and employ a complex system of ropes and pulleys to lower ice cubes into diners' water glasses on the first floor.
