Being a regular patron of Misono Nairobi I was keen to try out the mombasa restaurant. The restaurant is located next to the Nyali mall, at the start of link road. Google maps got it a bit wrong but we suggested an update so it may be better in the future. As a party of 3 we decided to pop... More

Although the ambience is great, the presentation is fine and the staff are attentive, the sushi doesnt have any taste at all. The rice was mushy, lacking vinegar and that sweet touch that makes it so distinct. If I had prepared that rice in a swimming pool at the hell's chamber it wouldnt be so awful. Quality x price: not... More

Even though Misono is on the Kenyan coast, and laid back, I have never had such slow service in any restaurant anywhere. That being said when the food did arrive it was very good. An evening of mixed emotions, slow service, warm beer but very good food. Misono could learn a lot from Furisato in Nairobi.

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 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
