“A safe bet...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

I'll start off by saying that my wife believes this restaurant is a Five. I, on the other hand, think its a 4. I'll start with the positives. 1) It's has a fairly large menu and it can be vege friendly. My wife, who is a vegetarian, tends to like their vege sushi and vege box, 2) the items are executed fairly well. Nothing overly sophisticated on the menu, so they get the basics rights, and 3) the service is a big plus here. A very attentive staff can make a big difference!

There are a few reasons why I believe his place is not a Five: 1) The menu is pretty standard, nothing "wows" you, 2) the place is a bit dated inside and could use an upgrade, and 3) I wish they varied the flavors of their teppanyaki (like most places, they just use one sauce).

Overall, I do recommend visiting Furasato. We think its the best Japanese restaurants in Westlands. My wife and I are frequent visitors, just wish sometimes they would take it up a notch with regards to the menu.

“Amazing tepanyaki”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013 via mobile

This is a famous japanese restaurant located in westlands.

It has a big secure parking. Had the tepanyaki which (though pricey) was mouth watering. Consists of salad, tempura, sushi, noodles. The salad was excellent with a peanut sauce

Ambience is decent n service is fast
