Review - Fujiyama: An Abode of Traditional Japanese Food At Avari Towers

Japanese Food Festival At Fujiyama, Avari Towers Hotel.
From 7th to 16th December
I was super excited when I heard that there will an event about Japanese food and my excitement touched its height when I came to know that it will be at Avari Towers. The reason was simple, I have gone there multiple times with my family and friends and found its dining areas including Dynasty and Asia Live very convincing. So, on the first day of the event I went there and to my surprise the decent décor, exotic cuisine and staff dressed up in traditional costumes truly represented the culture of Japan at the Japanese Food Festival held at Fujiyama restaurant, Avari Towers Hotel in Karachi.

The festival was inaugurated by Consul-General of Japan in Karachi Mr. Toshikazu Isomura, along with his wife, Deputy Consul-General of Japan Mr. Katsunori Ashida, and Mr. Grant Raubenheimer VP Operation Avari Towers. It is a 10 days long food gala from 7th to 16th December 2018.

Fujiyama is a classic restaurant serving traditional Japanese food with authentic aroma and flavours. It is not only the food but also the location that entice its guests. The sky rise view on the top floor of 17 story Avari Towers gives you enormous panorama to enjoy city of lights’ beauty. The restaurant has earned a status of a perennial place for elaborate Japanese menu, serving a wide range of Sashimi, delectable appetizers, bona fide Japanese dishes and variety of sweet-treats.

The buffet style dinner was set up so that diners can move along the buffet line and serve themselves as per their choice. The grilling tables were also arranged behind the buffet counter where Chef Carlito Magno was all ready to show his Live cooking skills.

However the highlight of the day was clicked when Deputy Consul-General of Japan Mr. Katsunori Ashida started demonstrating his culinary skills by showcasing the slicing techniques of a fish for sushi assembling. It was the most exciting phase of my dinner.

I started my dinner by serving myself with Miso Soup. The Seafood Clear Soup was also there but I preferred Miso as it is my favourite. After that I selected some of the cold and hot appetizers including Mixed Sushi, Sashimi, Maki, Gyu Tataki, Agedashi Tofu and Ebi Tempura. The taste of Sushi was excellent, it melted in mouth and gave a feeling of satisfaction for my taste-buds.

For the main course,  I filled my palate with Tori Katsu (Chicken Katsu), Sakana Katsu (Fish Katsu), Gyu Katsu (Beef Katsu), and Tori Teriyaki (Chicken Teriyaki). All the fired food was truly crunchy and the flavor was superb.

I also tried garlic fried rice with combinations of different Teppanyaki dishes including Ebi (prawn), Gyu (beef) and Tori (chicken) teppanyaki. For veggies lover there was Yasai Itame (Stir Fry Vegetables) with a sauce.


Over all, I would say that it was a wonderful experience of authentic Japanese food and comfy ambience. You must visit this festival to enjoy delicious Sushi, sizzling seafood and mouthwatering tempura delights. The Fujiyama style serving with radiating refinement and peaceful atmosphere will give you the greatest foodie experience.


I would definitely give it following rating;

Food – 4.5/5
Ambience – 4/5
Service – 4/5
