Who Are We
The Phoenician Restaurant offers the best Lebanese & Japanese dining experience in Nairobi. The extensive menu offers a colourful selection of Lebanese and a fine selection of Japanese and other dishes that are familiar to any international palates.
It is the ideal venue for anything from a casual rendezvous, family dinner, birthday party to an end of end of year corporate party.
The Phoenicians were sailors, back many years BC so it is hardly surprising that our Nairobi Phoenician Restaurant has moved about a bit – The restaurant was first located on Karuna Road in Westlands before moving to The Junction Mall for a period of 6 years, till June 2017.
We are once again back in Westlands, pleasantly moored in Matundu Lane. The premises provide just the right mix between sophistication and a family friendly ambiance. There is ample secure parking and an elaborate children’s’ play area. Sundays feature a live mellow musical performance.
The vegetables served are organically grown at the owners’ private farm in Thika, providing a safest and healthiest vegetable offer. The meats and seafood purchase process is a highly selective to ensure that only the best cut reaches the table.
How it all Began.
Ours is a story of love and friendship. We Started the restaurant in 1997, having arrived in Kenya from Lebanon and wanting to meet new people and share our warm culture and amazing healthy foods.
The Phoenician Restaurant was established in April 2000 to provide a revolutionary renaissance to Lebanese Culture and is cleverly blended with Western and African Cultures.
The restaurant was started at a time when the Middle East Culture was evenly awaited in the Kenyan hospitality industry. Hailing from Lebanon the proprietors who have been in Kenya for over two decades now initiated the idea and proudly saw it through.
Within the course of time: estimated 8 years we have incorporated a sushi bar catering for Japanese food. We now serve Lebanese, European and Japanese cuisines, Teppanyaki and Pizzas. The Phoenician Restaurant has proudly managed to incorporate all the components that make for a worthy dining experience. We work our best to lead the pack in the hospitality industry.
