Stable quality

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

Went to Misono on Valentines with my wife. At first, we seated at one of the grills and left to wait for almost 15 minutes before a waiter attended us and moved us to another grill with a chef. It took another 5 minutes before he came to take our drinks order, without a menu. Only 3 brands of beer... More

Did not think much of a Japanese restaurant in Nairobi, but was surprised at the high quality and freshness. The food was articulately served and was fantastic. I strongly recommend trying it out.

Had lunch twice recently at this very Japanese place in the middle of Nairobi on Ngong Road. Good raw materials, beautiful presentation, fantastic taste and very friendly service. I cannot wait to go back for their tepanyaki next time I'll be in Nairobi.

We were a group of friends out for dinner. We had just come from a concert that ended pretty late but we were lucky and found it open. We quickly ordered before the kitchen closed and I must say when the food arrived, it was mouth watering. I had tried sushi on a previous occasion and did not like it.... More

Let's face it, food isn't the only thing takes people to certain places. It's the services offered as well. The sushi was great, they mighy want to work on their clientele and comfortability of the restaurant though.

Tasty, fresh food cooked on the teppanyaki table .... what I miss from the Hilton in Sandton, Joburg. Wonderful! The set teppanyaki menus are filling but worth it. Service is good.

Heard so many good things about this restaurant and was keen to try it. It's an attractive looking place set in a building called 'The Green House', which is equally good looking. You are welcomed by a gong on arrival and are given the choice of Teppanyaki tables downstairs or à la carte menu upstairs. We chose upstairs in order... More
