“My go-to place for sushi cravings, excellent and efficient”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Quite regularly I end up working in Nairobi and, living in a landlocked country (Ethiopia) and coming from a coastal area (Brittany, France) I really miss my fish, sea fish. Furusato caters for this need like no other. The selection of sushis, sashimis, makis is delicious - although some say the Japanese restaurant in Westgate is even better regarding its all-round offer. A bit on the pricey side perhaps.
Staff are quick to seat you and, while service takes a bit of time, the staff is really good and professional, if not all too warm and friendly.
The decoration is lovely and the restaurant is always full of people, including Japanese and Korean customers, which is a good sign. The garden offers lovely evenings when the night's not too chilly.
All things considered a really good sushi place really. Perhaps not the best restaurant in the world, but a solid reference you can always count on...

“Always busy and good food”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

I don't think I have ever been to Furusato when it hasn't been busy - even on a Monday night. The food is good and reasonably priced. There is teppanyaki, sushi, and a variety of noodle dishes. Also Korean dishes that are very yummy. A very reliable choice.

“Lively atmosphere, decent Korean/Japanese food”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

The food here is pretty good though you can get better Korean food elsewhere. The sushi here is among the best in Nairobi and the place is fun and lively on the weekends. I believe it's the only restaurant in Nairobi that has a teppan grill.

Son's birthday dinner and the Tepanyaki was great. We have had more lively experiences but boys enjoyed.
