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

Nairobi is pretty far from the sea, and I normally would hesitate to eat raw fish in such a location, but Misono, which has opened in a brand new office/shopping center in Kilimani, serves good and authentic Japanese food, including respectable sashimi and sushi. They have bento box lunch specials, which are a treat, as well as a full range... More

Misono has always been my favorite Japanese restaurant in Nairobi. Sure it's Korean/Japanese but still, their sushi is excellent. I am probably biased because it's close to where I live but I have tried others... FYI, they are now in The Greenhouse on Ngong Road next to Adams Arcade.

FOr the best Sushi in Nairobi, check out Misono. They have relocated to the Greenhouse on Ngong Rd with a bigger nad better menu. Mr Song & his wife are always around making sure you get the best quality food. They have a delixious avocado sauce and 'special sauce' to accompany your meal giving it that extra edge. Service is...
