Bland over-priced food in a boring looking setting in a shopping mall. I was not convinced by the ingredients freshness/quality. On a positive note the waiters were poilite.

My husband and I went here a while back -we particularly enjoyed the Japanese aspects of the menu -the tempura and the sushi. I had a Lebanese entree, which wasn't bad -just not as notable. It is pricy, but the ambiance is great. Service was excellent. Would definitely go again.

I was a bit bummed when they relocated from Westlands and thought the change in management would affect the quality of food and service but that hasn't changed. The sea food is fresh, and makes for an all round value for money meals there.

This is one of our regular spots. Pheonician offers Japanese and Labanese cuisine, it is an interesting combination, right? Surprisingly both cuisine are very delicious. Restaurant is located in Junction Mall, on upper level. It is quite during the weekdays, however busy Fridays and weekends.

You can see shefs preparing so many type of Sushi is very interesting. They are quite skilfull! They are bit expensive so select good dish (not only Sushi) from menu. Ask the waiter what you would like to have. They can advise good dish for you.

Right in the heart of the Nakumatt Shopping Centre in downtown Nairobi. Fusion food from the Mid-East and Japan. My son's favourite restaurant!

Always liked this restaurant. Great food, good ambiance. Not sure what was going on this time though. The milk for the tea was diluted! Really how much cost saving is made by doing this? Most disturbing experience though was that they were very unbothered about serving alcoholic cocktails to underage girls. Just wrong. NACADA should pay this establishment a visit.... More
