“Very good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

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, at least or anyone else I have talked to about it). Well worth a visit! In fact I have ben craving their food for weeks - just need a special date!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

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.

“Continuous High Standard”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

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!

“Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

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!
