Rare and Great place

I am not into football, but ran through a few football stars here from the Brazilian team, and the beautiful ladies around. We wanted to be seated on the veranda, and they honored no problem, after a 20 minutes wait. The food was as in every great sushi, and the atmosphere was excellent

Visited Sushi Leblon in Rio and had a wonderful evening, the food was just as described and the service was very good, staff were always on hand and nothing seemed too much trouble.

Spent about 10 days in Rio and went twice in one week. Went with the wife around 7:30 PM as we didn't make reservations (from around 8:00 PM the wait can be pretty long). Had the mushroom stuffed calamari, generous portion as an appetizer, it was so good we had to order a second plate! The torched salmon with cripy... More

Great sushi and a classy atmosphere. We had a sashimi plate to share which was pretty decent value - although place is not cheap we spent more on worse food in Rio. We had to wait for a table so would suggest booking in advance.

Although expensive (USD 100 per head ) you will not find a better Sushi restaurant in Rio. Trendy, you won't make it later than 7pm, when tey open it, as they do not much accept reservations.. Later in the night, impossible to get in, huge queues...

We were quite hungry why walking around Rio de Janeiro and came across this Japanese restaurant. It seemed very high end situated in the nice Leblon area of Rio. The food was excellent, quite possibly the best gyoza that I've ever tasted and the sashimi platter we had was incredible. I'd come back to this restaurant if I'm in Rio... More

Our waiter was good, not great. Our food was fine, not fantastic. This place is all about reputation and lacks substance to make it really worthwhile. I think there are better places in Rio.

Only spot I found any japanese beer but maybe I wasn't looking in the right places. Sat at the bar, told the chef make whatever he wants. Was a little pricy, as expected for a special order but I would say the quality is on par with plenty of good but not excellent places in the Bay Area. That's saying... More

If bad service is what you like this is the place to go. As we waited for our table we ordered 4 caipirinhas and three of them were served without sugar, when we told the hostess, instead of having new drinks made for us, she gave us packets of sugar. We sat at an outdoor table and our waiter came... More

A place to wonder, what will they think of next? Shark sashimi, other exotic ideas, it is all possible at this wonderful place with a terrace to make you chill in peace.
