It's a funny place, facing into a car park - very common in Karen, but the food is good and it is tucked away from the passing traffic. I love the Sushi and Sashimi platter. They need to be cautious with their cocktails as they often taste alcohol-less. It is a nice restaurant and the food does not disappoint (me,... More

Very good value. Excellent fresh food. Friendly and generally efficient service. Crunchy tuna rolls are a favorite as is the salmon steak. Ambiance is simple and pleasant.

Haru is definitely one of the best Japanese restaurants in Nairobi, whenever we dine there, service is always impeccable and the waiting staff are on top of their orders. Never had a negative dining experience. The food is exquisite, ordering different items on the menu and we're never disappointed!

Haru is one of the best Japanese experiences outside Japan. The service is always excellent and the sushi and sashimi always fresh. You must order the prawn tempura. Simply the best. Great for celebrations or a quiet meal for two. The ambience is not perfect but the food more than makes up for it!
