This place used to be packed to the rafters. It was always full on weekends with a big line up to get in and the food quality was superb. After the restaurant changed ownership, one of the first things they did is allow reservations. This created a situation where there were line ups but empty tables. Very frustrating. Regardless, the... More

The quality and generous size of our salmon and toro sashimi is unmatched, best in the city !! Relaxing atmosphere allows us just to sit and enjoy the food, unlike certain restaurants that rush you the bill to get you to leave . a surprise bonus we get free fried banana dessert :)

Super fresh fish, and very tasty rolls. Furusato is a very unassuming exterior but inside is loaded with unique rolls like butterfly. Great flavours matched with great presentation. Just a smidge expensive.

First of all, great service and the food came quickly. The fish was very fresh and the tempura was good. Overall though, I must say it was just average for me. I was surprised that they only had one type of hot Sake which is my favorite thing to drink with sushi but the house Sake was not very good.... More

The food was good but the service could have been better. The server "Haruna" was excellent, there was seven of us eating and our food came at different times, but I would still recommend eating here.

Although it's gone downhill in many ways...I still appreciate their sushi and the memories when I go there. Used to be run by Japanese ppl. Hope the new owners pick the place up a little. Could use a pick up.

The fish quality is very good, their Sushimi's are big and fresh, and the roll are quite tasty, specially there is no junk in them like tempura etc, it is the real stuff. Price is reasonable too. Its the best sushi place I've been to in Edmonton and one of the best I've visited overall. The only thing is that,... More

We just returned from dinner at Furusato on Whyte Avenue in Old Strathcona. It is a cozy little restaurant tucked in beside an eclectic record shop. They have seating for just over 50 people and if you'd like to sit at the bar and watch the chef there is seating for about 7 or 8. The meal was amazing... fresh,... More

I recently tried Furusato again and was very disappointed. The first clue was the 'complimentary appetizer' consisting of heavy greasy battered fish bone scraps!!! The sushi was limp and not very fresh, taste was awful. My suspicions of new management was confirmed when I heard the staff speak Cantonese. The original Furusato was staffed by Japanese. The fish bone 'appetizer'... More
