“Excellent sushis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

I try to go there once in a while and have to admit that the quality of the products is quite good. I love the fresh salmon imported from Norway. Last visit, I was a bit disappointed by the tuna (also imported from Norway). Overall, it is a good Japanese restaurant. Service is fine.

“Nice surprise in Vientiane”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

Don't know why we didn't visit this excellent restaurant before. We were invited to join friends, who had already ordered a selection of dishes ahead of time. It was overwhelming, but everything tasted excellent and was well presented. Service was good We were a group of ten in a private room, which got a bot hot at times when the doors staid closed too long. Otherwise, the atmosphere is cozy. The sashimi tasted relatively fresh, and was of good quality. A novelty for me: briefly deep fried Californian roll; makes the nori very crisp. Highly recommended form families, groups, couples and business dinners.

“Fantastic Japanese food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

Having lived in Japan for well over a decade I am somewhat of a Japanese food snob, so I was surprised at the quality and taste exhibited by this Japanese resto located on a touristy side street in Vientiane. The place was full of Japanese residents and tourists, a great sign, and the menu contained all the classic and even some specialty dishes not often found outside of Japan. I ordered the hiyashi chuka, a cold noodle dish that's hard to make correctly, and it was really good. The sashimi looked very good, the chef was very practiced in my opinion. By Laotian standards this place is expensive, but cheap if compared to Japan or other developed countries.

“Sushi, Sashimi and Sake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

The best Japanese restaurant in Vientiane, easy. If you're in a group, ask for the little rooms at the back, private and fun. We rarely manage to eat anything other than the delicious sashimi, but the soft-shelled crab is fab, and so is the eel, and, just, yum.

“A pleasant surprise in Vientiane”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

As a lover of Japanese food, I was pleasantly surprised to have found fujiwara. Everything that I have tried on their menu is good, but the yakitori sets that they have are worth a try. The cheese on stick was initially odd, but after one bite, i fell in love. Their agedashi tofu and edamame are good entres and a bowl of miso soup completes the meal. They also have sushi and sashimi.. Service is quite good. Its smart to book a table or get there early to avoid disappointment!
