I have dined here over many years on regular business trips to Nairobi. Although I do not seek out Japanese restaurants, this restaurant has to be the best of its kind I have visited anywhere in the world. The food has always been delicious (if a little on the pricey side), the service is friendly and attentive, and the restaurant... More

I have only had sushi here, but is is excellent, on a par with most decent European sushi restaurants. Price matches the quality (high...) but worth it.

Visited this restaurant on multiple occasions and I love the experience! The staff are quite helpful and pay attention. For some reason, their sake (rice wine) tastes better than another Japanese restaurant's in Nairobi which I recall. One thing I really like about this place is how spacious it is, and how there's ample space for both indoor and al... More

This is the best place to go in Westlands for quality Japanese food. The decor is warm. The service is just okay. After looking at the menu, it feels like maybe one visit isn't enough. There are a number of great options and I really enjoyed what I had. The salmon and tuna were very fresh but the experience would... More

Upon entering you will smell a strange foul fishy breeze coming from the sushi bar. The portion are very small and the taste are missing of something..maybe interest. Anyway it was not that really bad but I'd rather go to Zen Garden or Misono if I want a japanese fix. And oh..the wait staff looks drunk and must be forgeting... More

We have been a couple of time to Furusato restaurant. The food is perfect and among the few of real Japanese taste. Sashimi is great there and always tasty. Also, the environment is very unique either for an outdoor lunch or a classy dinner. The only thing than can be improved is the quality of waiters knowledge of the menu.... More

Furusato was impressive with its food, ambience and service. The sushi and tempura were definitely the highlight for us and everything on the platters tasted great. It is very good value for money, and the restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere. It is also excellent for its service, as the food never takes too long to arrive and there is a... More

This was a first visit and I would have no problem recommending it or going back. the food and service was top class. I went with a group and we opted for the Tepenyaki and everyone seemed very happy with the experience. Enjoy

A lunch box. The misosoup was really good. The tempura aswell. Chicken ok. Tuna also. But the fishburger was tatally tasteless - so we did actually geuus if it was fish? or chicken? or pork? Still not sure what it was. I have to return and try something else from the menu, but not the lunchbox.

The staff is friendly, the service is good and the atmosphere is nice too. The menu has a large variety as well. Could have been a nice evening. It's just that 2 of 3 from our group had to throw up after eating here. And yes, we could exclude others sources or reasons for getting sick.
