Excellent Sushi

The food here is always consistent and despite there being a fair amount of competition in Nairobi, this place in my opinion serves up the best Sushi rolls.

Having decided that we would have a change from our usual Japanese restaurant we elected to go to Furosato. The ambience is very nice and the staff are very relaxed and reasonably attentive. The menu is extensive with a good mix of platters on offer at a reasonable price. The Sashimi and sushi platters we ordered were large portions and... More

My all time favourite Japanese restaurant in nairobi, the sushi is the freshest and the sushi chef is really engaging. Sit at the sushi bar, we got a couple freebie bites for asking questions! 😊 The unagi is to die for!

Located in a nice quiet area in Westlands, perfect atmosphere to catch up with friends or date night. There's an outdoor area and inside sitting. My favorite is always the sashimi boat as there's a wide variety to choose from. Perfect for two. Service is great and pretty fast.

We go quite often to Fuasato, even though there are probably better Japanese restaurants in Nairobi, this is the 1 closest to us. We go for Tepenyaki, we love the site of the food being cooked before our eyes. The sushi is nice. Wish they were more adventurous with the vegetables that come with the meet, always use the same...

Serene atmospheric garden, phenomenal food, friendly welcoming staff. We have mostly the Bento box and they are most accommodating to adjust it to meet vegetarian needs.

I guess as other sushi bars come up I appreciate just how good Furusato is . The very fresh sushi, the wide choice of pot noodle soups and tempuras as well as main meals and additional rice and miso soup. I love the japanese tea. A very high quality,authentic and enjoyable restaurant.
