Furusato Japanese Restaurant is an excellent option (I guess it is my favorite Japanese restaurant in JB – though I like a couple) located in the strip of shop lots on Jalan Kuning, next to Plaza Pelangi Mall.
The California maki is quite good and large (18 MYR). The sashimi is quite excellent. They also have cooked food, I just normally get sushi and sashimi there when I go.
The service good, but I would rate it a bit below the other Japanese restaurants in Johor Bahru, in my experience. But that is still quite good; the service is the Japanese restaurants in JB is excellent (the best for any style of cuisine). The Furusato restaurant doesn’t have a buzzer at the table, which is fine in the right setup but I have had some delays for service.
Location: 53, Jalan Kuning 2, Taman Pelangi, 80400, Johor Bahru.
