“Puts Benihana to shame”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

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.

“sushi in Nairobi”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

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.

“Japanese cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2012

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.

“Solid Food - decor faded”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

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
