Had lunch twice recently at this very Japanese place in the middle of Nairobi on Ngong Road. Good raw materials, beautiful presentation, fantastic taste and very friendly service. I cannot wait to go back for their tepanyaki next time I'll be in Nairobi.

We were a group of friends out for dinner. We had just come from a concert that ended pretty late but we were lucky and found it open. We quickly ordered before the kitchen closed and I must say when the food arrived, it was mouth watering. I had tried sushi on a previous occasion and did not like it.... More

Let's face it, food isn't the only thing takes people to certain places. It's the services offered as well. The sushi was great, they mighy want to work on their clientele and comfortability of the restaurant though.

Tasty, fresh food cooked on the teppanyaki table .... what I miss from the Hilton in Sandton, Joburg. Wonderful! The set teppanyaki menus are filling but worth it. Service is good.

Heard so many good things about this restaurant and was keen to try it. It's an attractive looking place set in a building called 'The Green House', which is equally good looking. You are welcomed by a gong on arrival and are given the choice of Teppanyaki tables downstairs or à la carte menu upstairs. We chose upstairs in order... More

The best Japanese food you can have when in Nairobi, this was one of the first Japanese food restaurants in Nairobi and surely they have kept their standards. Please do not miss the Tapanyaki by any chance. A must when in Nairobi

My friend who lives there choose this place. It was the right choice. The food was very good. We had a mix of sushi and nigiri etc. We could not eat all :( it was just to much. The price ok. The service was also good. The only negative was the bad air from the kitchen inside the restaurant.

Went for the first time with my friend after a good kickboxing session at the gym. I had the miso soup and veggie fried rice. Based on what others are saying, I would like to go back and try the sushi!

Great sushi place and very authentic. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is authentic. However, the service is absolutely awful. Going there with 4 friends, they had forgotten utensils, plates, bowls, glasses for either of us in turn. And the staff really appeared as if they couldn't care less which is a shame as the Japanese owners really appeared... More
