Tasty food, great service!

The food was very tasty and the service was prompt, and with a smile. They were willing to accommodate dietary restrictions with ease, and we're very welcoming on the whole. Well done!

We really love the Sushi and Sashimi here, and a good selection to choose from. This is a first choice for Japanese in Nairobi so far and our regular haunt. Good food, good ambiance and good Sake.

The food is great authentic sushi, such a great selection to choose from. I am not crazy about the Eel but the rest was great. Prawn Tempura was belissima, the California rolls was awesome with a vegeterian option. All fresh food, tasted great. Service was good with the right level attention.

We recently had the opportunity to do dinner. The ambiance was excellent and the mood subtly lively.There was a waiter at hand to attend to our needs, the beautiful part is that he was in shadows and not staring at the table like some of them do *very annoying habit!* We did one of their Tepanyaki courses which we found...

Great place, good ambience, wonderful food. Must try tapinyaki. It's great experience to have food cooked in front of you. Good for family and business meals

The restaurant has been recommended by the concierge at the hotel and it was good enough for Japanese food. We had diverse selection of dishes and this made our dinned great. Actually it was not crowded at all ... The location is difficult to find as the restaurant has moved and the driver kept asking people around to find it.... More

I love Japanese food and have been to Furusato many times and have never been disappointed. I usually go for an overload of sashimi and sushi but this time on the advice of my daughter went for tepenyaki meals. The salad to start was amazing and so refreshing allowing for the juices to devour the lobster, salmon, sushi and sashimi.... More
