Japanese food

Excellent food (especially if you go for the tepanyaki). Nice atmosphere. Very expensive, but worth visiting at least once.

Great restaurant! This is one of our favourites. A very varied menu with a great range of choices. Nice atmosphere. Good wine. Friendly efficient waiters.

The food and ambience is good. Book in advance. The food portions are large and it is good value for money.

Had their Tapanyaki. Left so very very stuffed. Pricey, good for a special occasion, but so very very yummy. Nice outside seating, good location. All around, made for a wonderfull indulgant evening

If you are used to American Hibachi, throw that out the window. Everything is super fresh and you get treated well. Chicken, beef, fish, lobster, tuna steak, veges, then rice and soup. Sushi is also out of this world. Tough to find but follow the signs. It is inside a gated entrance with plenty of space once you enter.

it´s probably one of the best places for sushi in Nairobi, but then again there´s no really fabulous place for sushi in Nairobi. Got quite a nice garden. Worth a visit.

Really good Japanese food and saki - if you're a fan of sushi, then this is the place to go in Nairobi.

The food is absolutely delicious and authentic. The portions are good. Service was good. It is a costly place to eat. The ambience is destroyed by only one thing ... their cafe style menus. If you love sushi, sashimi or any other Japanese food it is worth a visit.

This place is good value for money and staff are helpful. With that comes the fact that this place really needs a refit to freshen it up, the oriental touches comes across as very '70's and the Menus look tired. Sitting at a BBQ is probably your best bet

I had a meal with my wife and we are certainly going back. It's very crowded, especially in weekend, so better have a reservation. We didn't so we had two seats at the bar but was a nice place to see food in the making. Staff are nice but service is a bit slow. If you like sashimi go for... More
