If this is the first time you open our menu, Hajimemashite!(Nice to meet you!)If you are already a customer, He Yôkoso!(Be welcome!)The age and the familyIt was on the 13th December 2005 that we opened the SushiCafé Amoreiras and we never imagined that after 6 years we would be here and already with 4 restaurants established (SushiCafé Avenida, SushiCafé Amoreiras, SushiCorner Colombo e SushiCorner Atrium Saldanha). We are now a numerous family and all of this owed to you. Thank You!The Fish qualityAlthough we changed the dimension we never changed in what is really important, the fish.We still buy the best Tuna in the world, the Bluefin.It belongs to the specie Thunnus thynnus, from the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean, the bluefin is the largest tuna there is and therefore the most tasteful, we may see the different types of meat as the akame (less fat), chu toro and ho toro (more fat).Our tuna is captured according to the Japanese know-how. 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!

The sushi was great! Nice ambiance and nice people. If I could suggest one thing... that would be to add the Dragon roll to the menu. We had the Spider (twice), this was really nice.

We were distraught when we saw Bluefin Tuna on the menu. Mediterranean Bluefin Tuna is an endangered species that will go extinct in the near future at current rates of consumption. We brought this up to the manager who claimed that the fish came from a sustainable fish farm but he was clearly misinformed since their supplier, Tunipex, catches wild... More

Everything we ordered was seriously delicious. I would really recommend you try their Calpis drink. It's really different from all the other places I tried before. We had the Calpis Melon with Mint leaves and still water. It was really nice. Our starter dish was the Oriental Bags. Looks like sushi but without the rice. A perfect dish to start... More

Went there end of July. Restaurant was not full, so it looked good, small but nice terrace. Inside, loud music, a bit warm. Not a sushi house for sure, instead it looked like a gin bar with space. Went to the terrace. Nice staff. Next door, another restaurant, music so loud we could not speak. Asked for sushi, vegetarian as... More

We had a really nice meal at this restaurant and enjoyed the atmosphere. It has a modern feel to it but the service is really personal and effective.

Our experience wasn't as spectacular as some others. They did have a great selection of Japanese whisky and a nice wine list. The night our party of two dined, there were some real issues.
