Best Japonese restaurant in Niteroi

This is the best japonese restaurant in Niteroi, but it is very expensive. Try those desserts. The food is always fresh.

Gendai serves nice Sushi but I missed the Sashimi. The service was OK. The restaurant is located in 2nd floor of the Plaza shopping in the food court so it can be noisy.

Either in Piratininga or Icaraí, both restaurantes are great. Great food, great variety and quality. It is a little bit expensive during weekends, but it is worth it.

Everything you can expect from a Japanese place: very nice atmosphere, excellent fresh fish (and other meats as well), superb service, discounts for small children and tasty cocktails. If you are in Niterói and crave some sushi/sashimi and other traditional & novelty oriental cuisine you cannot miss going to this place!

It's a good choice to go for a nice cost / benefit Japanese Food. You're going to find a reasonable variety of options of typical or "new style" dishes with a nice atmosphere.
