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

Furusato has very consistent good Japanese food (I usually order the maki-sushi combo, which is great) and very good service. Appies are also nice (shrimp tempura, agedashi tofu, dumplings) and I love the salad and miso soup they serve at the beginning of each meal. It's a bit pricey but the fish is always fresh, so it's worth it!

We did not have very high expectations when we went to Furusato. But the sashimi boat with a fine selection of fish was nothing but delicious.

The sushi was good but really nothing very special and the restaurant is very big so it doesn't really have a huge amount of warmth or intimacy. It's a good place to go with a large group for decent food. It is a little on the pricey side though.

I can't quite recall when I visited in 2012 but I found myself booked into the Nairobi City Hospital for the next three days. A marvellous, large and inviting sashimi boat was spoiled by the addition of some advocado wrapped puke inducing fish. Put it in mouth, instant yuck, spat out, still spent next day losing great amounts of weight... More
