Onami Grill and Sushi Bar - Westgate Mall, Nairobi, Kenya

Greetings from Nairobi, Kenya! Starting off with a pure foodie post ~ from an expat area mall called Westgate - where we'll explore Onami Grill and Sushi Bar!

Love the decorations in the restaurant. Especially the 'central' area that has a vase ... that looks suspiciously Chinese. From the Ming dynasty era, or something. But let's not nitpick :)

We're each served with a mini salad to start off. And of course, green tea - I don't really drink anything else with Japanese food.

Appetizers - Assorted Tempura. 3 big prawns, sweet potato, green beans and others. Quite above average!

Salmon sashimi slices are huge! Thick and meaty, and very fresh, too.

Red Snapper sashimi comes as an appetizer.

Since it's lunch I go for a grilled chicken thigh with spanish paprika sauce. It's got a nice taste, but ... doesn't at all fit the overall Japanese food 'taste.'

Prawn noodles - unfortunately no idea how it tasted, but it looked pretty good!

Overall, was a pretty nice place. A bit on the pricey side perhaps - 9,000KES for four people (roughly MYR360).
