“Better than average but not quite excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Which makes it the best Japanese on offer in Kenya, to be sure. The sushi here in particular is the star, but there is also pretty decent teppanyaki and also some nice korean options on the menu. Best appetizer is the Tuna Soyae, their gyowza is pretty good too. Best sushi roll is the spicy crunchy tuna. Skip the soupy salads up front, stay for the free ice cream at the end of the meal.
