About Us

Nikkei cuisine was born in 1889 when Japanese farmers moved to Peru to work in sugar cane fields. Lacking many of their traditional ingredients, they began using Japanese cooking techniques with Peruvian ingredients they could find locally. This gave birth to an inspiring and unique cuisine known as Nikkei.The INTI experience centers around the finest Nikkei cuisine. The restaurant celebrates the marriage of Japanese & Peruvian fare in a unique contemporary urban environments in the heart of Nairobi

Tokyo drift is where it's at

4/ 5

This is a one-of-a-kind restaurant. It oozes class from its name to its decor. It is on the 20th floor of the one Africa place building so you can imagine the view while dining. It’s some 10 minutes from Nairobi CBD and a cab cost about kes 200. I was there for lunch with my cousin. Before that, she gave me a heads-up on the dress code. To be honest, it was kind of a turn of. Why can’t you wear what you want as long as you pay the bill? Anyway, let’s say they have their target clientele. The decor is spectacular. It feels rich in culture and class. The views of Nairobi and Westlands are to die for unless you aren’t a fan of heights. We had the ceviche platter(trying to sample everything) which goes for kes 4000. For me, their food is an acquired tasted. What I enjoyed was the Tokyo drift drink which packs quite a punch. I’d recommend it if you are willing to try something new.

Classy and finest dine-in restaurant in Nairobi

4.2/ 5

INTI-A Nikkei Experience is the finest restaurant I have been to so far in terms of ambience, food and dress code. Well yes, they have a strict dress code which I was quite surprised about and had luckily researched on the restaurant before making reservations for a New Year’s dinner date with my two cousins last year so we weren’t caught off guard. The restaurant is situated in Westlands Waiyaki Way on the 20th floor of the One Africa Place building. Once on the 20th floor there’s actually a board showing the dress code rules. Upon entry, the waitress at the door confirmed our reservation for three and led us to our table. The interior is sooo beautiful with seats showing a marvellous view of Westlands and Nairobi through its glass walls since the building is really tall and towers over the rest. The well thought of architecture and the bamboo interior decor hanging from the ceiling at the bar lounge makes the place look both classy and unique. I had earlier been made aware that at Inti-A Nikkei, strict meal times are followed in that breakfast and dinner is served at specific times and no time before or beyond that so one should be aware of their meal times. We got there at around 7p.m which was within their dinner time frame so we got to order drinks and food. They specialize in Peruvian and Japanese cuisines hence its name Nikkei. Their meals are affordable but a bit on the upper side so be ready to spend quite a bit when you come here. We had their Inti Tiratido Peruvian dish which had an assortment of octopus and salmon and went for Ksh 1700, some Sushi, their Rising Inti roll and Beef Tenderloin. For a person who was trying Japanese and Peruvian dishes for the first time, their food is really delicious and I waa impressed by how well the food was made. For drinks we each had the glass Hakutsuru which was Ksh 1000 each. The place gets quite busy at night which wasn’t a problem since their customer service is top tier. The marvellous view of Nairobi at night as you enjoy a delicious meal and great company at Inti-A Nikkei should definitely be added to your bucket list.
