Regularly eat here and the sushi is probably the best in Nairobi, though being from Switzerland I am probably not the world's expert on sushi.... Service great, atmosphere always lively.

The restaurant was very crowded with one particularly large group who were extremely noisy and seemed oblivious to the fact they were ruining the evening of many of the other diners. This ruined the whole ambience of the restaurant as it was like trying to eat and have a conversation while a pack of baying hyenas were alongside! The service was extremely slow and until the staff were asked no serviettes were provided, ice for drinks had to be asked for at least 3 times and the weird metal chopsticks provided were difficult to use until finally wooden ones arrived after being asked for. The staff were polite and friendly, but there seemed too few to deal with the number of diners, so I don't blame poor management rather than poor staff or the poor service,
The only saving grace was the food which was absolutely first class and very good value. It ranks amongst the best sushi I've ever eaten anywhere; fresh, tasty, beautifully presented and prepared. I'd have to think twice about visiting at a weekend though as the noise and crowding spoilt the atmosphere.

I often have business lunches here. I get Abraham to do the selection and am never disappointed. What impresses me is the consistency of the high quality of food.

Second time here with family for dinner. Food - never disappointing. Our waitress however disappeared at some point during dinner and we never saw her again. If there was a shift changeover, we could have been informed. We had to deal with two different waiters thereafter who did not engage us at all, other than clearing the table and bringing the bill. Overall, while not appalling, the service definitely needs improvement.
