A Japanese-Brazilian option in Cambui

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.

The environment was good, very lively place. Food is below par, fish need to be cooked at that condition. Did not see a single actual sushi chef. Way over priced.

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
