First Review by Didiejolie

Bad experience - Edit

The food was edible but disappointing, it doesn't seem to be an authentic japanese restaurant as they cook japanese dishes in a chinese way, as they seem to be chinese. Some people wouldn't tell the difference but I went to Japan and ate at real japanese restaurants and can tell the difference. we read so many good reviews that we thought it was going to be good, but even if the food was disappointing the worse thing was the treatment, we were the only customers at the restaurant as we arrived there early, and still were completely ignored by the waitress, who pretended we weren't there. We could feel so much hate from her that it made us feel very uncomfortable, we didn't understand what the problem was as we were both kind... we wil never know.. but we felt very uncomfortable at being completely ignored and receiving such an arrogant treatment. We left hoping they didn't put anything nasty in the food.

Worst restaurant - Edit

Let me say this first. This is not a Japanese restaurant but a Chinese restaurant run by "only care about money" minded-Chinese people who don't even go to Japanese restaurant by themselves.
I read the other people's reviews and blindly believed that it was a good choice but it was the worst experience... especially THE waitress what the other people talk nice about. Such a gap between the reality and the reviews...
We are a mixed race couple and the waitress was suspiciously racist towards us (I still can't believe it). Even living in London for a long time, I never experienced such an thing from Chinese people (never experienced in China town). We even feared that she might put something we don't want to think of in our food...
Purely talking about the quality of food... Who would put a positive rating as this is a "good" standard!? It really made me doubt the reviews. For example, potato salad was "too" sweet, probably added sugar in it... Mixed seafood don, they used hot basmati rice (!!??) right below cold fish... Miso soup tasted like just dissolved instant miso with randomly chopped raw mushroom...
If you cook for years, I'm sure that everyone can sense the effort of cooking from the meal. And their food...
It took more than half day to forget about the experience. If you go there thinking you are going to a Japanese restaurant, you are mistaken.

delicious vegan roll - Edit

Nice japanese restaurant. Omnivore but offer vegan and vegetarian options.
When we visited the Château de Versailles, this was the best choice because there were almost no vegetarian restaurant in Paris suburbs and most of them were omnivore french restaurants and offers only french fries as vegan food.
10 minutes walking from the castle.
Nice place, very clean. Nice waitress. She knows what vegan means. The food is delicious, very tasty. Pretty presentation.

Soup miso, cabbage salad, vegan rolls, avocado makis, cucumber makis (and cheese options), rice...
Only one vegan desert but very good : tapioca, mango and coconut milk.

10 vegan roll : 10 euros
Formule verte (vegetarian) : 15.50 euros

Opening every day 12:00 14:30 / 19:00 22:30

Très bon restaurant japonais. Omnivore, mais choix végétarien et vegan. Lorsqu'on visite le Château de Versailles, ce restaurant est de loin la meilleure solution car quasiment aucun restaurant VG en Île de France. La plupart des restaurants omnivores proposent seulement une assiette de frites.
Situé à 10 minutes à pieds du château.
Jolie salle, très propre. Serveuse gentille qui sait ce que vegan signifie. Délicieuse nourriture, jolie présentation.

Soupe miso, salade de chou, roulé vegan, makis aux avocats, concombres, riz (options au fromage)...
Un seul dessert vegan mais il est très bon : tapioca, mangue au lait de coco.

Le vegan roll de 10 pièces : 10 euros
Formule verte végétar/lienne : 15.50 euros
web : http://restaurantkampai.com/
Ouvert tous les jours 12:00 14:30 / 19:00 22:30

Pros: tasty, vegan choice

Cons: a little bit expensive

Delicious, healthy, veg-friendly food - Edit

Have been looking for healthy gluten-free vegan food in France. Found it at Kampai. Really nice staff, great environment upstairs and downstairs. Lovely evening. I enjoyed the miso soup, algae salad, and vegan roll without the sauce. It was perfect, GF and vegan.
My family had regular sushi and also thought it was delicious.
Highly recommend it for plant-powered people visiting or staying in this area around Paris.

Pros: Delicious, Great ambience, Nice staff

Great vegan options in Versailles - Edit

Versailles is very poor in vegan options. French food is not vegan friendly... This new restaurant opened in june 2015. The waitress are very friendly and the owner is very aware to vegan clients. So they decided to improve their vegan offer. I tried the vegan roll wich is one of the chief sgnature dishes. This was really delicious and satisfying. Sure I will come back and try the tofu udon noodles. Or maybe the vegan roll one more time :-)

Pros: Friendly staff, Good value, One of the only option in Versailles
