Lovely restaurant. As soon as you walk in the door you begin a journey into Japanese cuisine. You feel transported to another realm. The food is great and the service to match. Agadashi Tufu, Salmon Sashimi and the tempura are my top three dishes. Only issue is that it's on Ngong road and it's a little awkward to get to... More

Tepanyaki experience is excellent. They do not have a very good non alcoholic selection of drinks. This is one of the areas they should work on

Come here weekly. The kids insist!! They have the best prawns tempura we have eaten, always fresh and crispy. Their sushi are amongst the freshest in Nairobi, we just love it. The kids love the chicken teriyaki. I highly recommend a visit if you love Japanese food.

This is, by far, the best Japanese Restaurant in Nairobi. The food is fresh and absolutely divine. Prawns Tempura and the Salmon Sushi and Sashimi are my favourites though other excellent dishes as Futamaki rolls, Korean Sushi amongst others. A truly awesome restaurant!

We went to Misono on a couple occasions and found it had good sushi. However, the quality of the fish was very hit and miss, and food service VERY slow. We now prefer Tokyo Japanese in Lavington for food and atmosphere.

We got stuck in traffic and decided to go for a meal. The place was empty when we arrived on Friday evening (but we were there quite early- around 7 PM) and we were welcomed by the friendly manager who showed us to our table. We quickly ordered sushi and some sashimi which arrived at our table within 15 minutes... More

Monday is not usually the most conventional eat-out kind of night, but this was my husband's birthday, and he picked Misono. It was my third but by far my best visit! As usual the ambience is warm and welcoming, nice authentic Japanese restaurant in Nairobi. I wasn't too keen on Tepanyaki but I'm definitely glad I went for it! Flavors... More

Can't remember the last time I enjoyed dining out this much. The food was out of this world,our chef Irungu was just everything. Kamau the waiter was on top of his game!He was so patient with my boyfriend,and taught him how to use chopsticks. Hands down,would rate it as the best place to have Tepanyaki and sushi...the pictures will speak... More
