“Best Jap Resto in Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

If you happen to be in Nairobi, try Furusato's Chef Recommendation. The food is cooked right before your eyes and really, really tasty

“Nice sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

Off the beaten path (or so it seemed to me). The hotel car service dropped us in front which had nice outdoor seating. Once inside, reminded me of a japanese restaurant in the U.S. The menu was large, and significant options to chose from. Service was a bit slow, but then again the restaurant was absolutely full with persons waiting even at the sushi bar. Prices were reasonable. If you like Japanese, you'll like this.

“Good decent Japanese restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012

Very nice atmosphere, clean, friendly place. Food was good. Sushi was not the most amazing I've had but it was good. Service was fast. Sake was not great, it was a bit sour.

But overall a very nice atmosphere, good food and a place I would go back to!

“Decent food, but not really Japanese”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

This restuarant does have good food, but if you have been to Japan, it's more Asia fusion ... sort of.

“Sushi place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2011

Based within Westlands this is the perfect place for a nice lunch.

They have pleasant outside seating arrangements and the waitors are always friendly. The menu is wide ranging but the dessert menu is slightly limited. It was slightly pricy for a restaurant in Nairobi.
