Good value, pretty good food.

Decent Japanese buffet. A lot of fairly fresh options for a buffet, and they will also make some special items for you. Quality is quite good, and it's fast and easy since you can just get what you want when you want. Service was friendly too, which I appreciated.

I had a late night dinner upon arrival to the adjoining Vitoria hotel. I was seated at a window table, and to my surprise the place was packed on a weeknight after 10pm. The service is unceremonious. I ordered a sushi assortment, which was very lightly garnished and quite unimaginative and bland. I'm usually a big sushi eater, but I... More

Very nice sushi (especially the salmon). Fresh and nicely presented. Somewhat pricy compared to Brazilian prices, but it is very hard to find this good sushi any cheaper anywhere. Only complains: Menu presented in tablets - what is wrong with paper??. There were at least 3 waiters serving us so they ended up taking some drink orders several times :)

Wide variety of Brazilian/Japanese dishes. Very lively place from 19:00 to 23:00 hrs. Good knowledgeable service. Not a budget place. Food and drinks are on the high side.

Travel all over the world. In Campinas on business and stayed at Victoria Hotel. People said this place had good sushi. Didn't see any Japanese Sushi Chef so was a bit worried. The Sushi tasted fresh and very well prepared. I really enjoyed the entire meal. Will come back next business trip.

Never been to a place with a sushi buffet but this one was great. Lots of good sushi and other Japanese food as much as you can eat. Loved it! Waiters are really good and after a small complaint about a cold dish even learned that the cooks could make it over for you if you ask them. Great experience,... More

Kindai restaurant in Campinas, inside the Vitoria Hotel is my favourite Japanese restaurant in all of the Americas, possibly top 10 on my overall list including Japan. No surprise since nearby Sao Paulo is one of the world's biggest populations of Japanese people or of Japanese heritage. The food is great. Not cheap. Can be a little dark at night... More

Excellent japanese restaurant. Great quality service from the moment you enter the restaurant to the moment you leave it. One of the best restaurants in town, simply delicious. The rice quality is also surprising, one of the bests I've ever tried. They leave aside a bit too much the traditional japanese food, offering modern dishes and adaptations. I would like... More

Fresh sushi and sashimi were perfect, and some of the presentation unusual but very tasty, especially the salmon spicy plate. Lunch has a full buffet setup but you can order off the menu as well.
