A hidden secret

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Misono. Attentive and pleasant staff, lovely ambiance and delicious food. We opted for the set menus and every course was a delight - though come hungry if you select this option! Highly recommended and certainly one of the better restaurants in Nairobi.

We have tried many of the Japanese restaurants in Nairobi and Misono's is our favorite. GREAT sushi & grill. We always eat upstairs and from what I understand the menu is different and less expensive. There are ALWAYS lots of Japanese people eating there, that is a pretty good sign! Service is very good, sometimes a little slow, but so... More

Wow! This place has absolutely beautiful and amazingly delicious fare. Just as visually appealing as is delicious. We ordered the boat, only $37 (a bit out of our price range, but so very worth it) and a tempura appetizer ($8). The sauce on the side of the tempura was so flavorful and delicious. You are also given soup and salad... More

I'm a fan of the sushi at Misono. Granted I have been living in Kenya for over 2 1/2 years and haven't had sushi anywhere else for quite a long time but I'm always pleased with the sushi and the service at Misono. It's a beautiful restaurant not far from quite a lot of other shops and restaurants along Ngong... More

Did a sushi date and it was great. The ambience and staff was good. There are options for the non-sushi eaters if you are going with a group. The seafood and vegetables taste great and fresh.
