Phoenician (Junction)


The Phoenician is one of our favourite restaurants in Nairobi!

Local Tip

If you go to the restaurant upstairs when it rains it can be VERY noisy. In a heavy downpour it can be almost deafening and not at all easy to hold a conversation!

It has two locations in the Junction; downstairs it has outdoor seating under canvas umbrellas that provide shelter from the sun and rain. It also has a larger and more private dining area upstairs.

The Phoenician has an excellent reputation among the mainly expat clientele. It serves authentic Lebanese cuisine and also Japanese cuisine.

As well as the two outlets withine the Junction Shopping Centre; the Phoenician also has a lovely outlet in Matundu Lane in Westlands.


  • It serves classic Lebanese and Middle Eastern dishes such as Tabboule, falaffel and Hoummous. The dishes are well presented with good service and the restaurant has a friendly and relaxing atmosphere for both lunch and dinner.
  • The Phoenician also serves delicious Japanese food which we consider to be right up there as one of the best Japanese restaurants in Kenya. All the equipment and accessories are imported specially from Japan.
