I deal here with Nippon at 207 Sul Bloco C, loja 17, or Nippon Gourmet (quite a pretentious designation), where you could have a taste of Japan cooking in fast-food fashion. Place is quite tiny (maybe intentionally for genuine japanese feeling), crowdy, tables are too close one to another and people could wait in line for almost an hour before... More

For a menu of all you can eat I paid 50 BRL plus drinks and tips. The food was very fresh and chef really good, always preparing wide variety of sushi, both traditional and fusion. Be careful if it is cold outside to find a table that is inside due to the fact the most part of the restaurant is... More

This is a good Japanese buffet. It's probably the best one in Brasilia, but it could be better.

As a local resident, almost always I visit "Nippon" and "Nippon Gourmet" at 403 Sul and 207 Sul, to saciate my urge for japanese food! Always fresh products, very nice service and good ambiance! Price is around USD30,00 for the buffet (all you can eat) not including drinks and 10% tip . Also NO Wifi at premise. : (
