“great veggie sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This place has the most diverse and delish veggie sushi in Nairobi. Always a delicious meal. Cocktails left a bit to be desired and after order was messed up a few times, we resorted to beer.

“NACADA should pay a visit”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

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.

Very disappointed.

“Okay place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Had dinner, first have to compliment their cocktails, not had a good Mai Tai in a while, recommendable.
Food, my friend enjoyed the sushi box. I decided to try some Lebanese. Not quite impressed by the sharwarma. Service is good. Was my first visit there, looks like a place that would be nice for a family date, friends having a party or get together.

“The owner Joseph is an excellent host who is always around to ensure that guests have a good time and enjoy their meals.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

The food is is wonderful, as a Lebanese myself it is eating away from home. The tabouleh is sour enough as it should be and the meat is tender (lahme mishwi). The batata harra (potato with lemon, olive oil, chilli and garlic) is to die for and the bread is baked in house so hot and fluffy. The restaurant is beautiful and spacious with a nice balcony for those who smoke. There is a sushi bar and everything is fresh and prepared beautifully.
