This place is great, they don't oversell themselves, however and the menu can be a bit difficult to figure out. Once you have been though, you will keep going back. Portions are generous and well presented. They offer everything from Korean Kimchi to sushi to hibachi grill. My teenagers can all find something they like to eat.

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.

This is THE place to have Japanese meal in Nairobi. The restaurant is lovely housed in a bungalow with beautiful gardens. We went for lunch. The outdoor seating was perfect in the great Nairobi weather. The food was fantastic. Very fresh, authentic and large helpings. They have set menus for lunch as well. The sushi and the unagi were delicious.... More

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. We had the deluxe dinner--ten courses. It was about $27 per person. Reasonable by US standards. There were six of us, but we... More

In my opinion Furusato is the best Japanese restaurant in Kenya offering the full range of Japanese cuisine. This includes a Tepanyaki area where the chef makes your food infront of you and an extensive sushi bar with a wide variety. You can't go wrong with Furusato.

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.

The sushi is decent. Not excellent, but good. This is place is good for large groups. It's also a good pick if you just need something in Westlands (centrally located in Nairobi). The service is good except that the waiters can be a bit sexist. I have been a few times and when I go just with my husband, they... More

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.
