I was looking for Japanese cuisine in Campinas, had been to Matsu (also good) so thought I'd try somewhere different. Great ambience and reasonably priced. More used to eating in São Paulo, this came as a surprise. I have a miso soup, some chicken starter dish and a mixed tempura. The food was excellent, dips very nice, I'd go again.... More

Japanese food with great ambient, good looking people, great for couples and dinner before going out. Candle lights in all tables, a DJ makes the sound with a very good taste in most part of the time. Service could be better, but they are always trying to improve, nothing to worry.

Yes, it was raw fish, but why? Those are not Sushi grade fish, there for should been cooked. Diaria when you travel is the last thing you need.

This is a very bad experience for families, couples, every human in the face of earth. They really lack of service, cocktails are wrong (if you want to drink whateaver they want you to drink, just ask and wait 45 min to get). The manager and staff are so proud to get a recent Veja (as they call that), they... More

Overall a nice restaurant just adjacent to the Vitoria hotel in Campinas Brasil. Walked in with reservation on a Wednesday evening about 9PM and the restaurant was packed. We were a party of 8 and in about 10 minutes they were able to seat us. Overall food was good, but it was obvious they push the salmon Sushi and sashimi.... More

A very good Japanese restaurant. lively and with good food. service can be a little slow but that may be a little picky. Well worth a visit.

This is most places you go in Brazil: Drinks are charged on an individual basis. There is no one price for unlimited refills. I would go to this restaurant VERY HUNGRY because the charge for one person was 60 Reais, which is about 30 USD!

Been there looking for a special evening with my wife, what a deception. The service was terrible, table was not prepared, didn´t receive the hot towel to clean my hands, the waiters were careless and desoriented. I ordered a sparkling wine, it was not cold, actually not even close to cold, had to wait 20 minutes to drink it. The... More

One of the best sushi restaurants I have ever been to out of Japan. Ingredients are of excellent quality, good service, cosy and modern place. Discrete lounge music, good place for business meals. Even with the all-you-can eat option, this restaurant is not cheap.

You can eat very good Japanese food here. But you pay for it. If what you want is good food and don't care so much for ambiance and service, there are much better options in Campinas. I personally prefer Matsu - a fixed price eat-as-much-as-you-want alternative.
