Went to this restaurant on a saturday afternoon with 4 friends: 3 japanese food "aficionados" and 1 newbie. I'm a vegan but that didn't stop me from having a great experience at this place. Staff was kind, food was fresh and delicious. Everyone had a great meal and the "newbie" was impressed. Oh, I loved the ambiance too.

I love sushi, but I hate the prices... Until I found this gem! What is really special is that it is located in a small shopping mall (the Green House) so it is very convenient, for lunch. The service is fast and friendly, the menu expansive, and the presentation is pretty cool (especially if you get a boat!) There are... More

The restaurant is warm and well set. I enjoyed the japanese cuisine and left with a satisfied feeling with intention to return.. The waiters are helpful and made my experience even better. It is a good place to take out family and friends. Prices are fair and not forgetting free parking

In a grim looking business block is a little bit of authentic Japanese cuisine. The sashimi was fresh and the sushi was expertly rolled. The service was very good. It was expensive, but this is to be expected for sushi. All in all, I give it a thumbs up!

Following my Japanese friend’s recommendation, I had a lunch at Misono. Food is delicious, I do not afford to eat dinner every evening but at least, after my first visit, I ate lunch almost every day at Misono during my 7-day stay in Nairobi. The restaurant is very suitable for business lunch/dinner, with friends or special occasions/functions. The space is... More

There used be in Kilimani area and it was moved into Green Plaza near Adams Arcade. More sophisticated interior in new location. Good sashimi & sushi as usual and teppanyaki. Well managed by a Korean owner and cooked by a Asian cook. You are welcomed with Taiko drum when entering.

Misono has transformed over time. It was previously located in a homey location but moved to the Greenhouse Mall. It's set up in a way that you have the option of casual dining or the full Japanese experience with a chef preparing meals at your table while you eat. We opted for the full meal with chef option and weren't... More
