Japonese "fast food"

First of all: if you are looking for a good japonese restaurant, this is NOT the place! But, if you want to grab a quick and cheap japonese food, go for it! This is the "fast food" for sushis. There many Koni Stores in Rio and they all have the same menu and prices. I love it, but if you... read more

I went there for lunch today and it is the worst sushi I have had in years. The california rolls were so bad that it gave the impression they took the leftovers from yesterday. Not fresh!

I used to love this place, it was quick and yummy! The last couple of times I went there the service was terrible, plus it took a long time to get the food and they got the order wrong... Once I asked for it "to go" and one of the rolls tasted like it was made and kept in the... More

Localization is good because you are near Leblon and Ipanema beaches. You have many choice in the menu for rolls and konis and you can even find original stuff (for example koni with salmon and wasabi crisps: amazing !) Prices are not so high and food is good (I went many times and I've never been sick). I have only... More

I do like to take away in this place and the reason is: isn't enough tables because the space is very small. The other problem is about the food portion. It seems that "matches" with the space. The portions are also very small. But the food is good. The restaurant has some "fancy ilumination", what makes the place a bit... More

The start is not the best. The waiter is not very clean. He brings the glasses with ice one inside the other so that the bottom of the first glass poses on the ice of the second glass. The food is really bad. Smelly and dampish fish. They don't deserve to keep on serving food

This sushi place is exactly what it should be: a fast food sushi joint, doing, however, great job: Nice fresh, sushi, creative combinations and very reasonable prices. Is not the place to go for a dinner out with a date, but perfect for lunch!

There are lots of sushi options in the area but Koni is my favorite one, their different combos offer lots of options between konis, rolls, yakisoba, salads. Take out is also available!

Interesting take on sushi as it has a distinct Brazilian vibe, but I definitely works. They do 'combos' which make he whole thing a lot cheaper, so it's worth seeing what you can get and there's loads of substitution options available too. Great if you want a relatively quick bite (although for a sushi place it is slow, but that's... More

This posh area has some of the most famous and expensive restaurants in Brazil, along with some of the city’s best nightlife (including some places open all night). One of the best places to visit is the beach, located under the impressive “Morro Dois Irmãos” (Two Brothers Hill). It’s a pleasant place to relax and admire the local beauty.
