Recommended by my friend. We had the best sushi in Mombasa. The owner Lee is the chef and his food presentation is like an art. The best ones to try are Sushi, Tempura and Crazy rolls

Had lunch here before heading to the airport. This was my partners first time to have sushi and use chopsticks and the staff were very helpful to explain and demonstrate how to use the chopsticks. Sushi was fresh and the tempura portion was very large.

Great Food, great ambience, great design~ A nice change in cuisine brought to Diani! Chef Lee is the friendliest owner and is always ready to give suggestions. Love the wood decor and interior which Chef Lee made himself! A must visit when craving Asian food!
