Good place to start

If you have not been to Natal, you should, then you may find language a barrier in some places. To get in tune with local eateries, then this is a good place to start, a sushi bar next to the sea, very fresh produce and good prices. I went in for a light meal in the evening and was met... read more

We ate here so many times. You pay for the kilo, but it isn't expensive. The sushi and sashami are perfect! You can also each traditional Brazilian food and barbecue. They have high chairs for babies, too. The bathroom is clean and has floss and mouthwash.

I always have sushi, the price is spicy, but the food is good. For a self service is just fair. If you need anything fast is good to go.

It's not everyday you find a restaurant that bills you by how much food you intend to eat in kilograms...but it's one way to create a valuation of the food. Based on this way of calculating value though, you will find foods laden with sauces and other means by which to, shall we say, "encumber" the food. Not great, but... More

Sushi and sashimi are so so. It's kinda like a mass production of fish cut in pieces. I enjoys the services, definitely Save room for the avalanche

This was the first sushi buffet I have ever been too, and one the reasons was everyone warned me not to create medical bills by eating at a sushi buffet! Well, this place changes bad reputation of sushi buffets a great deal! First of all, it is larger than what I expected from the outside, quite spacious and offers a... More

Rather bland food, average sushi. I expected something better since every time I passed by the place it was crowded but regret to say i was disappointed.

This self service is one of the better ones i have tried and it is reasonably priced but still a little pricey for my liking. It 52 reals for 1 kilo of food which is roughly 26 USD. Granted I did not get a kilo of food, more life hal but for that is a lot but I am getting... More

Nice sushi and nice meat. Not very fancy place, but good food and good price. Also pasta is not bad. Natural Juices are also a good idea. Be careful with the Ice. So long I had no problem, but never know!
