This is by far my family's favorite restaurant especially the westlands branch. The staff is great, they even gave us the recipe for the sim sim vegetable: yet to try it though. The owner is usually around greeting the patrons, a gesture that makes people feel welcome, even the manager at the westlands branch is a great man. Here is... More

I went here with a group, all of us were able to find something we liked. The menu is extensive and everyone was pleased. We were even lucky enough to meet the owner. A very nice man. He runs a great establishment. I highly recommend visiting this restaurant. The ambiance is also lovely! Great view from the deck.

I met an old friend here for dinner. He couldn't find the restaurant in the mall and I think they need to advertise more - the food was good, but for the entire 3 hours we were there we were the only two customers and it was Friday night.

We had an enjoyable evening at the Phoenician and ordered a 'boat' of sushi. It was fresh and somewhat tasty, though did not match other sushi offerings in NBO that are at the same price point. It is upstairs at Junction. Should you have difficulty finding it security will point you in the right direction. We didnt make a reservation... More

The Phoenician, my long term favorite for Japanese food has lost some of its performance and quality... The salmon sushi have nerves it the salmon, the hot plates are to greasy.. improvements are welcome, more competition is around the corner! Talisman etc...
