I have had much much better Sushi than this. I was looking forward to a fresh and healthy meal which by far was anything but fresh. The staff was warm and welcoming but the food does not meet the average standard. Shrimp Tempura had a very faint stale smell and the Sushi I had was "Une Set 17" which i... More

This is by far the best sushi place in Dakar. The food is to die for. The sushi is fresh and if you want you can sit by the bar. The service is great and the decoration is nice. The restaurant is a little small but it helps with the cosiness. Love this place

The most well known Japanese restaurant in Dakar. Ok I admit eating sushi in Senegal is a stretch, and we should be thankful we even have a Japanese restaurant, but if you've ever eaten in a traditional Japanese restaurant, you will be disappointed. I'm not saying it was bad, but very average, especially considering the outrageous prices! Special shoutout though,... More

The best Japanese in Dakar. Fuji offers an excellent choice of authentic Japanese cuisine including excellent fresh sushi & sashimi as well as miso soup, edamame, tempura, teriyaki, teppanyaki etc. etc. with a wide range of the less run-of-the-mill fish for the first two. Great hot saki. Friendly and knowledgeable service. Modern chic minimalist decor. Their high standards have been... More

Lots of authentic Japanese choices you won't find on many menus. Proper sencha teas, and a good lunchtime bento box.

If you like sushi, high quality and cozy ambiance here is the place, rather for dinner or lunch. Yes it' s expensive but Dakar in general is an expensive city. At lunch you can try their box ( combo option) very good!

One of the best restaurant I have ever eaten in Dakar but boy when the bill came i nearly collapsed. There is also a very interesting mix of senegalese celebrities and lots of white frenchies so feels a bit less local than most restaurants. But definitely recommend it if you have deep pockets!! A friend tok me there in 2011... More

Some people don't trust raw fish in Africa. No problems here at all. High quality, amazing taste even for the simple salad to start but the prices are so high we didn't go as often as we wished. One of the best Japanese restaurant of the continent.
