“Nice food, nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

The set menu was a great choice and allowed us to sample lots of different items (tuna pancake, shrimp, lobster, chicken, beef). The waiter was helpful in telling us which sauces went with which food items (meat, fish, veg). Lots of food -- i was satisfied but couldn't finish everything. Seemed to be a good place to bring a family as there several tables of (well-behaved) children -- including a rather embarrassed birthday boy.

“Good times at Teppanyaki”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

We went in a large group. The food was plentiful and offered good value - many of us were too full up to finish up the set courses. As with any teppanyaki experience, there was much chair swopping to catch up with diners on the opposite ends of the table. The service was good - unobtrusive and efficient. I would visit here again

“My go-to place for sushi cravings, excellent and efficient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Quite regularly I end up working in Nairobi and, living in a landlocked country (Ethiopia) and coming from a coastal area (Brittany, France) I really miss my fish, sea fish. Furusato caters for this need like no other. The selection of sushis, sashimis, makis is delicious - although some say the Japanese restaurant in Westgate is even better regarding its all-round offer. A bit on the pricey side perhaps.
Staff are quick to seat you and, while service takes a bit of time, the staff is really good and professional, if not all too warm and friendly.
The decoration is lovely and the restaurant is always full of people, including Japanese and Korean customers, which is a good sign. The garden offers lovely evenings when the night's not too chilly.
All things considered a really good sushi place really. Perhaps not the best restaurant in the world, but a solid reference you can always count on...

“Always busy and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

I don't think I have ever been to Furusato when it hasn't been busy - even on a Monday night. The food is good and reasonably priced. There is teppanyaki, sushi, and a variety of noodle dishes. Also Korean dishes that are very yummy. A very reliable choice.

“Lively atmosphere, decent Korean/Japanese food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

The food here is pretty good though you can get better Korean food elsewhere. The sushi here is among the best in Nairobi and the place is fun and lively on the weekends. I believe it's the only restaurant in Nairobi that has a teppan grill.
