Arrived at 7pm having reserved a Teppanyaki table for three. We were shown to our table and soon a waiter came and told us that we are sitting the wrong way and would have to sit in a particular way at the table. Why?

Having dinner with some Rotarians, the menu is detailed with good offers for lunch. The waiter seemed abit impatient maybe she was overwhelmed but again I am a client. Recommend for a family dinner especially the bit where they prepare as you watch.

I was in Nairobi on a business trip and offered to take my hosts out to dinner. They recommended Furusato. We sat at one of the tables where the chef cooks the food in front of you.

This place has the freshest sushi in town and the best vegetarian sushi in town. Be careful however as the Dynamite roll is sooooo spicy. You may want to ask for no chili.

Love going to Furusato with family. Nice Teppanyaki and some amazing Sushi and Sashimi boats. Very spacious with large car park. Centrally located in Westlands.

I visited the place a couple of days ago. I am not a seafood person so i asked for a recommendation from the chef. My friend enjoyed the sushi though i stuck to the basic Salmon and it was amazing! The Menu is extensive, the service was also great.

Visiting Nairobi and had dinner with a friend here. Very extensive menu. We picked a sashimi/sushi platter which was sufficient for two. Sashimi was slightly better than the sushi but everything was fresh and very tasty. Really enjoyed it.

Great venue, great service, great sushi. Not cheap but worth it. We particularly like the starters such as the tuna avocado salad and spare ribs.
