I enjoyed the outdoor seating and the convenience of not having to go too far for Japanese or Korean food. However, it's just average. Much prefer Goong or Sushi Soo than this.

I am no expert in Japanese food. At all. Therefore my review is strictly limited to my perception of it, and is based on comparative study of a growing number of Japanese outlets in this town. Another remark: I am no big fun of sushi, and very seldom order those, therefore I cannot judge their quality here. We have been... More

We sat outside and enjoyed the gardens of the restaurant , chicken wings were disappointing but everything else was really good . My recommendation is stuck to the Japanese dishes , really fresh and full of taste , really good value too which is always a bonus !

I have been to this restaurant for the past 7 years when I'm Nairobi. Maina the chef is consistent, brilliant, great customer service always. Food is fresh and Chef Maina is amazing at the tepanyaki table. Ask for him, you won't be disappointed. Drinks list could be more varied.

Ambience is just great indoor and outdoor. Staff was friendly. They have tried to incorporate flavours of the customer's house country if requested. After chef's choice sushi (which us completely worth it) I have Chicken Teriyaki which was great. Flavours were just right. Must try out if in Nairobi.

Great experience! Food was very good and staff was friendly and attentive. The only downside was getting to the restaurant as they are building a new road just outside it.

I had been to this restaurant before and I had enjoyed it a lot. But this time it was just appalling. After the traditional seasonal salad, the tray with the sashimi and the maki arrived but guess what? There was a cockroach happily crawling across the food. No excuses from the waiter, no word from the manager. We just left.... More

Furusato came highly recommend by many local friends. We gladly went there for my son's farewell dinner, before he went back to NYC to finish his Masters. Such a great disappointment! Where do I start? With the seafood soup that was mostly broth and vegetables: with one prawn and one piece of fish, confirmed by our waiter. With sushi so... More

The restaurant seems to maintain the Japanese environment, but the food and service is not good at all. The staff is slow to take orders and serve food, the veg tempura I ordered was tasting bad, I had tempura before, and liked it so much, but this one was not at all tasting good, I informed chef about this, but...

Furusato is always great and the tepenyaki always a feast for the eyes and a treat for the stomach. Kids really enjoyed it too.
