OK place. Sushi was fresh and plenty of choices. Good ambience. Service wasn't great - tends to be crowded and so wait staff is not as attentive. I had to get wait staff attention several times to get a refill of water, or get ice. I ordered a rock shandy and they didn't seem to know how to make it... More

This is one of mine and my wife's favourite restaurants in Nairobi the food is consistently delicious. We love the sushi and sashimi. The atmosphere is busy and watching your food being prepared while sipping some wine is extremely relaxing. The staff are very attentive without being intruding at all. We go here about every 6 weeks, drawn back here... More

Misono is most always referred to as 'not as good as the other Japanese restaurant.' That's the long and short of it. Fursato is popularly regarded as the best Japanese restaurant in Nairobi. Misono is another Japanese restaurant.

I had some business guests who wanted original Japanese food. After bringing them to Misono, Chef Song and his team delivered beyond expectations. I loved the tempura (veg and non veg) and they loved the sushi. I like the interiors though we sat out in the smoking section. Chilly winds, great wine and good food - a good way to... More

The new Misono Restaurant in Nairobi is very nice, modern and stylish, but still kept the traditional japanese/korean style. After moving the old Misono to the new place in the Green House we have been there for a dinner. The food was as usual very good and healthy and comes in a big variety. I do not know Nairobi so...

As a disclaimer, I've only eaten here once, but the service was really slow and we were brought the wrong order and spent 5 minutes arguing back and forth before they agreed to bring us the correct order. The food was also really expensive and not very good. There are much better sushi places in Nairobi like Sushi Soo or... More

Decided to try Misono at it's new location in Greenhouse for a business lunch. Massively surprised by the freshness, flavours and quantity. Snapper with avocado teriyaki sauce was excellent, as were the prawn dumplings. I always leave the Miso soup, but for once I enjoyed this version. Will definitely be going back.

I have yet to post a negative review, but here goes my first. To be fair, I have been to Misono three times (twice in Nairobi and once in Nyali) and the food has been fine. Not the best Japanese food I've ever had, but good for what I can find in Kenya. However, I am a stickler for good... More
