I visited this restaurant with my family. We occupied one table sine we were 6 adults and two children. The service was very slow but the food was good although the portions were very small. If the chef was serving the same item to four or five of us then the last person would receive a very small portion.

We visit this place often just because of the food. The serving service can be improved. The time between orders is not correct when ordering ala carte

We went in a large group and managed to fill 2 Teppanyaki tables. The service was a little slow but the food more than made up for it. Wonderful fresh sashimi and sushi and great flavours from the grill.

The sushi here is second to none. Absolutely exquisite. It's a treat to sample the very fresh tuna rolls. The marinated ginger pickle accompaniment is thrilling to the taste buds. The miso soup is as original as possible. An exceptional dining experience except for the interiors that are getting to look really unkempt, my only criticism.

Hands down one of the best places I have had sushi in Kenya. Prawn tempura, salmon and tuna sashimis, salmon and tuna nigiris and the fish eggs on the Mali rolls are too die for. Word of caution: the wasabi here is the real deal and quite potent unlike many other places. I'm still salivating at the thought of that... More

Nice restaurant for Japanese meal. I specifically liked the welcome given at the reception as well as the exit. The staff are strategically positioned and once you walk in they all ecHo "irasshaimase" meaning "welcome, please come in". The ambience is really good for all sort of visits be it family, friends, couples, business etc. Though they can do better... More

I ordered a bitters and tonic. The waiter brought a soda water after I had mixed it with the bitters. Because I had poured it, he would not take it back. My sushi had a fish scale in the rice. We ordered a tuna avocado salad, the waiter said he would check on the availability, and he never cone back... More
