Stumbled across this place and decided just to walk in as it was busy and looked nice. Service was great, food was beautiful and fresh. Reasonably priced. Would defiantly go again!

It might be a one time coincidence but it took extremely long time to get seated and served. The menu is colorful and things look pretty but the taste was really disappointing. Prices are also high for a place with this standard. Unfortunately we don't feel we got value for the money at all.

It's a boring restaurant that you need to wait for 45 min to get your order! Waiters are so cold and the sushi 5 out of 10.

I am an avid sushi conisour and have eaten it all over the US and Japan. This is in my top 5 for freshness and taste. Small restaurant with only 7 tables and an 8 seat sushi bar. Waited 10 minutes at 830 on a Saturday night. Staff was attentive. Price was high but it is Hawaii and we were... More

I stayed in Waikiki for 4 and ate here on the first night. The service was attentive and very good despite being busy and crowded with the staff fully "stretched" dealing with everyone. It is a small restaurant so it is easy to feel "packed" a little but the friendliness is instantly apparent. I ordered some poke to start which... More

We decided to dine here to end our Hawaii holiday. This restaurant is very busy most days due to it being right on the main street. Good quality fish & other seafood used in the preparation of the sushi and sashimi. The platter was also presented beautifully and served on a wooden bridge. Just like a piece of art.

One of my favourite Japanese restaurants of all time, we went there 3 times in November 2016....the best sushi....really friendly service...not very big....so please don't go there. I will be back in Hawaii later this year and I really want to get a table asap!!

Loved the Sushi visited here three times, I give this place a five for the food, however the staff tend to rush you and your plate is gone almost before you finish. I realise it is a small place and they need to get people through, but we both thought it was too much.

We discovered this little gem on one of our last days on the Island. We had dinner and loved it so much we went back again the next day for lunch! The food is amazing and though the prices are higher, it's worth every dollar. The presentation is extraordinary, even as the restaurant itself maintains a down-to-earth appeal. It can... More

We went to Furusato after seeing it in a magazine in our hotel foyer. It was well worth the visit. The sashimi was amazing as was the spicy tuna rolls. We went back a few times on our stay as we enjoyed it so much here.

Thank Bec J
