While usually I rate the quality of food in a restaurant first and foremost, the service at Misono has to be the WORST in Nairobi. Maybe I caught it on a bad night, but even after imploring the Manager to provide better service to our table, it didn't improve. Shame on you. Now, as for the food, I would expect... More

Undoubtedly one of the best Japanese food restaurants in Kenya. Misono has been a family favorite for now close to seven years. Having been away for some time, we came back and decided to sample the new restaurant at Greenhouse; We made a booking for late dinner and therefore were among the last customers to be served that night. Unfortunately,... More

Our first visit to Misono in its new location, the Greenhouse. Misono has been one of our favourite restaurants in Nairobi for many years. Misono in its new location doesn't disappoint. We thought the sushi and sashimi was even better than before, and is by far and away the best in Nairobi - perhaps even in Africa? The service is,... More

Nairobi has no dearth of oriental restaurants, and Misono ranks amongst the highest. The new and revamped restaurant is housed in the "Greenhouse" building on Ngong road, and done with much fanfare - they even sound a gong each time a guest enters. The menu is really extensive, if you were to go through every item, you'd take at least... More

Amazing food, the location is not the best but its not bad. The quality of the food goes hand to hand with the price but its still worth it. To repeat the title: best Japanese in town

I wasn't a great lover of Sushi and Sashimi, preferring Tepanyaki etc, until a friend introduced me to Misono at the old location. They recently moved to the Green house on Ngong Road. Food is still as good, and very friendly service. Early in the week it can be a bit quiet, but Ive enjoyed every visit. Great parking as... More

I am glad misono is open in its new location! its much nicer than the old run down house and the service was impeccable! the food is fresh and delicious and i suprisingly really enjoyed the shitake sushi which i had never had before. i think misono, although on the more expensive side, is worth the money and is a...
