Grea teppanyaki

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

The best Japanese food you can have when in Nairobi, this was one of the first Japanese food restaurants in Nairobi and surely they have kept their standards. Please do not miss the Tapanyaki by any chance. A must when in Nairobi

My friend who lives there choose this place. It was the right choice. The food was very good. We had a mix of sushi and nigiri etc. We could not eat all :( it was just to much. The price ok. The service was also good. The only negative was the bad air from the kitchen inside the restaurant.

Went for the first time with my friend after a good kickboxing session at the gym. I had the miso soup and veggie fried rice. Based on what others are saying, I would like to go back and try the sushi!

Great sushi place and very authentic. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is authentic. However, the service is absolutely awful. Going there with 4 friends, they had forgotten utensils, plates, bowls, glasses for either of us in turn. And the staff really appeared as if they couldn't care less which is a shame as the Japanese owners really appeared... More

The sushi is really good but on our last visit the service was very slow and I am not sure if I will return despite it having been a favourite for many years.

Tokyo Restaurant in Karen has always been my favourite Japanese joint and now Misono. Surely, the best place for Teppanyaki. A bit on the higher side. Roughly $35 per head. If you're a Sashimi and Sushi fan, ask for assorted Sashimi and Sakura Sushi platter with some Dynamite rolls...enough for 2-3. Do not expect sushi grade salmon in any Jap... More

This is, I'm told, a historic Japanese restaurant in the Kilimani neighbourhood. It's new setting within the Greenhouse Mall is not the most exciting but the Japanese style decor inside is nicely done and the food is very good. The sushi is very fresh (the chef even showed us the ice boxes in which the fish gets flown in daily... More
