The sushi is decent. Not excellent, but good. This is place is good for large groups. It's also a good pick if you just need something in Westlands (centrally located in Nairobi).

Being a fan of teppanyaki, I enjoyed the food at this restaurant. Everything was fresh and well cooked by the chef. My only request would be that the chef cooking is more conversant with the patrons - ie. he explains what he is preparing.

We went with a large group and ordered a range of dishes, which tasted from OK to great, however some fish smelled like it had begun to turn bad. We were both sick the next day. Given the prices we would expect fresh fish.

For sushi and sashimi, this is great place. They also have wide range of tepanyaki. A hot steaming bowl of udon tempura is my favorite.

Fish is fresh, prepared and served with good style and attention. Nice outside area with a small garden, large parking area too. Waiters are very professional and gentle. Loved the sushi teppanyaki dishes. Ideal for families or groups of friends.

I came here for a business dinner. The menu offers Japanese & Korean. I had unagi (eel) and it was pretty good. The green tea however was extremely weak and tasteless.
