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.

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!

Pinga fogo is an excellent Pay-by-weight restaurant in Ponta Negra, Natal. With one regular and one sushi bar, you can choose amongst a variety of dishes. The sushi is good, the service is excellent quick and polite! Well worth a visit. A well filled plate of sushi costs you between 25 & 30 Reals. (61,90 per kilo)

Locals love this restaurant and you can find many families eating there. The restaurant is a self-service with local and japanese food. It is a place where you can feel how the Natal's people really behave for daily meal. There you can have a good meal at a very reasonable price. A value for money!

you pay by the weight of your plate. Always varying options of meat, salads and seafood. Very reasonably priced and good japanese food. Busy both for lunch and in the evening.
