Excellent Japanese dining experience

Probably a bit biased given the lack of fresh fish and seafood in Ethiopia, but still, Misono delivered an excellent dining experience to our group of four. Starting with setup of the restaurant: simple, elegant, quiet and pleasant. Great and attentive staff. Food-wise, we all had different... read more

Starting with setup of the restaurant: simple, elegant, quiet and pleasant. Great and attentive staff. Food-wise, we all had different teppanyaki menus that were well balanced, well portioned and tasty. One of fish... More

Locate outside of Mombasa in near Citymall and Naivas. The atmosphere here is quite romantic and the drums on the way in are a lovely added touch. If you have been in Mombasa for a while, living off the Coastarian food (which is for lack of a better word, yummy), this is a delicious change. I have been here a... More

One of the better restaurants in Mombasa. Both the Tepenyaki & Ala Carte menus offer good variety . Food quality is always very good though the Service is inconsistent & dessert / coffee should be avoided.

The meal was excellent - a great choice of set menus that gives a great variety. Lobster was delicious, and the beef with leeks and the vegetables also very tasty. Very tasteful decor. After a morning of Mombasa sightseeing a well-deserved long delicious lunch!

What more can i say. Some waiters do need to be trained but their service was good too. If you would like to eat Sushi/Tepanyaki/Sashami then this is the place to go. A bit on the expensive side but totally worth it.

We were dining in Misono in January 2015. We ate a collection of different sushi and it was very good. Our servant was nice, but probably new, since he was not so well informed about the menu (so he had to ask his colleagues regularly, but I prefer this instead of servants just claiming to be well informed). The whole... More
