“Sushi, not Lebanese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

Take a look at the reviews and you'll get a clear picture: some of the best sushi in Nairobi. Not so amazing for Lebanese. The tuna avocado salad is a ridiculously good value and the special rolls are great. Head up stairs and sit outside, it's lovely.

“Good Sushi and Tepanyaki”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

This is one of our regular spots. Pheonician offers Japanese and Labanese cuisine, it is an interesting combination, right? Surprisingly both cuisine are very delicious. Restaurant is located in Junction Mall, on upper level. It is quite during the weekdays, however busy Fridays and weekends. They have two Tepanyaki tables, if you plan to dine during the weekends, reservation is recommended. Compare with food qualit and service, reasonably priced.

“Amazing sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

The restaurant on the 4th floor of Junction is great- Very nice decor, very good service, amazing sushi- for me the best in Nairobi, the fish is always fresh and high quality, the sushi chef Gem is creative and innovative and their menu is rich of original rolls. I love it! We tried teppanyaki last night, and it was lovely too.

“Sushi is good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

You can see shefs preparing so many type of Sushi is very interesting. They are quite skilfull! They are bit expensive so select good dish (not only Sushi) from menu. Ask the waiter what you would like to have. They can advise good dish for you.
