Right in the heart of the Nakumatt Shopping Centre in downtown Nairobi. Fusion food from the Mid-East and Japan. My son's favourite restaurant!

“Great Sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

This restaurant in the Junction Mall is surprisingly good.

The atmosphere is quiet and conducive to conversation. The sushi chef definitely seems to know what he is doing based on the results.

The price point is better than the other restaurants in the mall.

“great veggie sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

This place has the most diverse and delish veggie sushi in Nairobi. Always a delicious meal. Cocktails left a bit to be desired and after order was messed up a few times, we resorted to beer.
