I came here for a business dinner. The menu offers Japanese & Korean. I had unagi (eel) and it was pretty good. The green tea however was extremely weak and tasteless.

Served/cooking by Francis(He was fantastic, brought a whole lot of quiet pizzazz to our table/cooking)! We had the Chef's recommendation for our group and we loved. I loved the ambience, food and very accommodating staff. It made for a most enjoyable evening out. I would recommend it!

Very consistent and food delicious. Would highly recommend for anyone. Make a reservation if on the weekend to ensure that you get a table, especially if you want a grill table with a cook.

Recently ate at Furasato. The menu is very extensive and varied (Japanese, Korean, Thai) I stuck with Japanese. While it was good overall it was not spectacular. The Agadashi dofu was fried with a coating that was too thick and tough, the Tempura batter was a bit heavy and greasy. I suspect the right ingredients may be tough to get... More

Food: Excellent Service: Average Ambience: Good Price: Mid-range Best presentation of Sushi and Sashimi in Kenya. Ambience is also the best out of the Japanese restaurants in Kenya. Service is a average considering the large seating capacity of the restaurant. Largest menu to choose from. There is a reason this restaurant is benchmarked.

We went for a 2nd time, this time we did not order set menu but a la carte. The dishes were Syo Platter, Prawns Tempura and Katsu Curry. May I recommend all three, there were absolutely no mistakes, extremely high quality both of food and of service. Only drawback was the end soup offered which was Tofu, a love/hate soup!... More

Best sushi in Nairobi. The salmon sashimi is excellent as is the tuna. Fresh and good quality seafood. Is busy on Friday and Saturday evenings but the atmosphere at night with the lights is nice. Lovely ramen soups.

We were recommended long ago to try it. There are not so many options for sushi lovers in Nairobi so we went and we had a great experience. The menu contains many different options of Japanese cuisine. We chose sushi and we do not regret it at all, it was very good quality, they were generous with the amount of... More
