Great authentic Japanese cuisine

The best Japanese in Dakar. Fuji offers an excellent choice of authentic Japanese cuisine including excellent fresh sushi & sashimi as well as miso soup, edamame, tempura, teriyaki, teppanyaki etc. etc. with a wide range of the less run-of-the-mill fish for the first two. Great hot saki... read more

Come here for lunch quite often, lovely break from hustle of city, peaceful, quiet and outstanding sushi. Good for lunch on your own or perfect for work meeting as wel as dinner with friends.

I have had much much better Sushi than this. I was looking forward to a fresh and healthy meal which by far was anything but fresh. The staff was warm and welcoming but the food does not meet the average standard. Shrimp Tempura had a very faint stale smell and the Sushi I had was "Une Set 17" which i... More

This is by far the best sushi place in Dakar. The food is to die for. The sushi is fresh and if you want you can sit by the bar. The service is great and the decoration is nice. The restaurant is a little small but it helps with the cosiness. Love this place

The most well known Japanese restaurant in Dakar. Ok I admit eating sushi in Senegal is a stretch, and we should be thankful we even have a Japanese restaurant, but if you've ever eaten in a traditional Japanese restaurant, you will be disappointed. I'm not saying it was bad, but very average, especially considering the outrageous prices! Special shoutout though,... More

Lots of authentic Japanese choices you won't find on many menus. Proper sencha teas, and a good lunchtime bento box.

If you like sushi, high quality and cozy ambiance here is the place, rather for dinner or lunch. Yes it' s expensive but Dakar in general is an expensive city. At lunch you can try their box ( combo option) very good!
