Misono offers amazing Japanese cuisine which is super fresh, expertly prepared and well presented!! Having eaten there numerous times, Misono is a family favourite and no trip to Mombasa for us is complete without a meal there. The service continues to be on par to any comparable restaurant and the overall experience, whether teppanyaki or a la carte, is consistently... More

In my opinion one of the best restaurants for authentic Japanese food. Their sushi is second to none.

This restaurant has a nice atmosphere and good service. My husband and I have gone twice and we always get beef teriyaki, which we really like. The only drawback is that it's pretty expensive, the prices are the same all day, which basically means you're paying dinner prices at lunch time. If they had lunch-priced specials we'd go every week!

The standard always maintained. The food is delicious, fresh, and wonderfully presented. I could have misono everyday! Favourites are the Kaiso salad, seafood rice and beef teriyaki!

We went there for lunch, service was good and staff was friendly. They have a big menu with good variety. Food is average and a bit pricey for such quality... They need to improve their standard.. I guess, I won't go back there!

Despite the wide range of dishes, the quality of the food is not good. You can have better dish is everywhere. The service however is great.

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. Was met at the door by traditional drum which announces everyone's arrival, which can be distracting, as it draws your attention to the door every time. 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.
