Great place to experience Japanese food in Nairobi

Restaurant has a good location in Westlands, ample parking and nice ambiance. The food is great, staff is welcoming. I always enjoy the Tapinyaki experience In my opinion best place for Japanese food in Nairobi

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.

Love this restaurant and have been going there for years. Definitely worth a meal or two if you like Japanese. The staff are always helpful and the service is good. Too many good dishes to mention!

It was a lovely setting with seats outdoors -if you like that kind of thing. They also have an expansive indoor space as well. Starter took a while to come out but it was great. The prawns were lovely and the chicken wings not bad but need more flavouring. The mains were nice too, we had quite a variety but... More

This is our favorite location for yummy Asian comfort food in Nairobi. My favorite dish is the Bi Bim Bap, which is served in a stone bowl, complete with a fried egg on top. From there, you can’t go wrong with the gyoza for a starter, or the delicious sushi. The restaurant also offers the “japanese steak house option,” which... More

I recently had a tasty Japanese meal at Furusato. The meal was enriched with all the quintessential Japanese flavours several thousand kilometres from Tokyo.

Furasato is nestled in the suburbs of Westlands and easy to get to with private transport or taxi. The sushi at Furasato is beautifully presented that first you feast with your eyes before you tuck your chopsticks into it. Try the tempura too all washed down with the perfect temperature Sake. You should give it a go then look for... More
