I love the Japanese cousin here especially the sushi and Tapanyaki. The chef put up a good show . I normally have to ask them to go slow otherwise the food keeps on coming pretty fast. I would highly recommend this place.

I did not expect to have a good sushi experience in Nairobi of all places. I was pleasantly surprised by Furusato. The selection of fish in not as plentiful as you get in New York or Tokyo, but the fish they had was very fresh and tasty. Person I was with ordered hot food and it smelled very good as... More

I'm not a Japanese expert. Their Sushi may well be great, but my experience was not good. The starter salad was great. The miso soup tasted like it came out of a packet. The Tempura prawns were fantastic. The Teriyaki chicken was very watery and insipid. We asked for egg fried rice which of course is not Japanese but it... More

Decent Japanese food for a decent price. A bit on the expensive side, and nothing particularly good. Would overall recommend it.

I went to this place upon recommendation from friends and given we were a large group I booked a table the night before. Upon going to the place, the staff refused to even acknowledge that they had made a mistake and could not find our reservation. This was such a huge disappointment as we wanted to enjoy their tepanyaki. Worse... More

Furasato make the best Sushi and serve the best Japanese Tapanyaki meals in the whole of Nairobi. Sitting on the counter watching the cooks make the sushi rolls and serving them the way they do - is very entertaining.

The chef entertained and wowed us with a few tricks. The food was exemplary and the service was good. The atmosphere was great and it was truly authentic food.

Great, maybe even the best, Japanese food in Nairobi. Pricing is above average and the quality is always great. We are regular guests at Furusato.

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? Because we had to share our table; With strangers?.....We voted with our feet - so no... More
