    What a lovely, intimate experience! Our chefs were the absolute highlight. They are extremely talented and prepared a feast. I appreciated the Japanese/Mexican fusion—it definitely had a stronger Japanese bent to it with more hints here and there of the Mexican Twist, but it was a culinary adventure. My partner and I tried foods we didn’t even know existed—and we are foodies! Very little takes us by surprise these days, but this experience certainly did. What a glorious evening!

    enjoyed the mexican twist on traditional omakase. Not for sushi purists, but if looking for something different and willing to give it shot, might be pleasantly surprised at this price point. Mexican influence was not overwhelming, in fact I think they could've gone a bit farther on some obvious servings. Fish was fresh and well prepared. Overall a pleasant experience in a speakeasy type setting (have to check in at the Buho Mexican Cantina)

    Excellent food and service. The freshness and flavor of each dish is amazing. Love the presentation of the food. Chefs are very professional and proficient as well as friendly. Very exceptional experience and highly recommend. Only thing is that the overall deco is a bit old and run down and could benefit from enhancement.

    Beautiful and unique presentation. I love omakase and have traveled extensively for the experience. Fukurou was a different experience. Very unique and the food was very good! Everything complimented each other well. Very exclusive experience.

    It is a very good omakase for the price but it seemed like the sushi was prepared before hand and just served but everything else was cool

    Very difficult to locate dining room; parking lot poor, Access to rest a maze at best. Once there staff tried very hard, but room like a store room/stuffy/warm. Difficult to appreciate meal.

    I really liked the food here and understand the covid situation means the chefs/ people that explained the dishes had to wear masks and coupled with the music and noise I couldn’t even hear the explanations half the time so just nodded my head and smiled. The venue is really hard to find so I wish there were clearer instructions to get up there. Really wished there was more variety in wines available by the glass for those who do not like beer or sake.

    A unique and intimate experience that feels as if you're in a speak easy hidden restaurant within another restaurant. That's essentially what Fukurou is. The omakase selection takes traditional Japanese sushi and delicately blends it with its surrounding environment and local flavors. My wife and I enjoyed our dinner there as well as the ambiance and friendly service by what felt like the "host" of the venue. The only one downside is that the air conditioner was a bit weak so they have some fans installed. Otherwise it wasn't a deal breaker, we would likely come again for a special occasion since it is a bit expensive. But you definitely pay for what you are getting in quality.

    店の入り口はわかりにくいですがエレベーターを降りるとBUHOの人が案内してくれます。 こじんまりしたスペースにL字のカウンターで8〜10人で静かに食事ができます。 柳原さんのお寿司も山中さんのお料理も絶品で、ハワイでこんなに美味しいお寿司や、お料理が食べられるなんて信じられないくらいです。 山中シェフ監修のお料理はパリハワイの時とは違って和風な感じですが、やはり感動の美味しさです。

    My experience was great. The service and food was wonderful. The only downside is the lack of AC in the room. It was hot in there even with a floor fan behind me.

    The mix of Mexican-Japanese-Hawaiian omakase was unique and made for a surprisingly excellent dining experience. We are familiar with Chef Yuya's expertise at Paris.Hawaii, and were excited to have been able to enjoy his creations again. Chef Miki creatively crafted sushi were refreshingly new. From the tako ceviche to the dessert (Roselani vanilla ice cream, matcha churro & azuki beans) everything was fresh and ono. Excellent beverage list. Highly recommended.

    Need to improve AC, private room was way too hot to enjoy our Omakase. Ventilation wasn’t good, I didn’t feel safe dining with others parties who I don’t know. This has been an issue since my first visit. Nigiri was hit or miss, rice quality need to do a better job and handroll seaweed was soft not crispy at all. I couldn’t post my handroll pictures because it was a “slouch” roll. I was a bit disappointed this second round.

    We decided to dine at Fukurou for a casual date night, overall Fukurou combined a delightful experience with a nice setting, and quality and fresh ingredients. Some of the courses felt like they were lacking when compared to other experiences, but due to the fusion and exlusivity aspect of the restuarant, I would still reccomemd the experience. My one and only gripe was that the experince is created by two chefs, yet they never show face, and explanation of courses and overall experince is lacking. If your goal is simply an upscale intimate experience, reccomended.

    Great food and service! They were really accommodating to the fact that I don’t eat wasabi, and I noticed they were very accommodating to a different party’s shellfish allergy. Only thing is that the room started getting warm towards the end of the meal.
