The tuna capture is probably as important as its quality, in a deficient capture it loses blood which means losing quality and flavour.Our salmon is upper category, 1st class of the three existing categoriesWe only buy large dimensions of salmon from Norway (6 to 9kg each) as it preserve better the flavour and consistencyWe wish you an excellent meal and relish with the best of Japanese food.Itadakimasu!Expression meaning gratitude mentioned before meals!

Elaborate!

Gorgeous looking restaurant, wide and inventive menu, great service and fantastic cocktails. Food was stunningly wellpresented and the fusion menu was a real treat if a little pricey. Very highly recommended.

I am a consistent client here because the fresh black cod is a unique dish in town and the classic Japanese fare kept up. It is a pricey place but they earned it. But, things have changed. Either, today I had bad luck or management has changed.

One of the top places in Lisbon to eat good and classic sushi. We attend this restaurant quite often. The music is nice. Ideal for smokers. Service is good, but it used to be spot on.

Great sushi place - staff is very unfriendly and the service horrible. But the sush is great! We went there three times during our visit in Lisboa and the service was bad everytime. We had different service personel everytime but it didn't change.

Large menu, good quality, great service, modern design. This is an excellent place to go for a romantic meal for two, or alternatively with a group of friends. Overall, well woth a try.

We love sushi and Sushi Cafe Avenida is, for us, the best Sushi restaurants in Lisbon. Also the atmosphere is very good.

Downstairs from Gucci, it was quick and good! I and my wife had the Yakisoba combination meal. It was delicious and inexpensive. Yakisoba and Miso soup, and a choice of two additional items.

We thought that in Portugal smoking in public places is not allowed. Upon entering, they asked if we wanted to sit in the smoking area or non-smoking section. We asked for a place in the non-smoking section.We thought that the smokers were in a locked area. After a while we began to smell smoke. When we looked around us we... More
