This is a very authentic sushi restaurant and they also have teppenyaki tables. I liked the sushi but thought the service was poor. They did not attend much to our table and it was our son's birthday. When we mentioned it, they tried to sell us the teppenyaki experience, but did no kind of celebration for us. We were dissappointed... More

Being a foodie I've had my fair bit of sushi. As one visiting Mombasa, I was curious to try out the local offering of the Japanese experience.

The sushi itself seemed hurriedly assembled and... More

We enjoyed ourselves immensely. One word of caution: Fish with mustard is a no no! Otherwise everything else was good. We had tepanyaki. Food cooked in front of you.

One of the best Japanese restaurants in the area. Located in the quiet Nyali surroundings, Misonos offers comfort far from home together with their Japanese cuisine.

The sushi and seafood in general is to die for. Fresh and delicious. Nice ambience and friendly staff. Tempura prawns is a must! Also the seafood fried rice. Thumbs up Misono, by far the best sushi in town.

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
