Best Japanese I've had in Kenya

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... read more

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

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
