All of the wait staff were unusually unfriendly, We began to think that they were actually robots rather than human beings in an upscale restaurant. The food, fortunately was fairly good and they have a beautiful zen garden to look at while you dine. I have dined at many many Japanese restaurants, including in Japan, and this would be about...

Food was great and filling. There were no tables when I went in so I was sat at the sushi bar, which is not what I planned on having. Had the sushi which was nice.

What a great food and experience. Starting with theur awesome huge japanese garden in the middle of the most busy business district in the whole country. Food here is traditional japanese, do not expect to find the occidental inventions with mango or cream cheese.

The building itself and the sheer size of the restaurant is very impressive and very centrally located just off Av. Paulista. They have a separate sushi section, where you can watch them prepare your food. Alternatively you can sit in the teppanyaki room, with bar style seats around individual hot plates. The whole looks onto an amazing japanese style garden,... More

I found the sushi average. this may have been due to the large group we went with, but even the side dishes were average.

One of our top picks for a laid back dinner in Sao Paulo. Has been offering a combination of good food, ambiance and service for many years. Their unique flamed scallop "sushi" is a must try. I wish they would change the white lighting in the gardens one day...

Great Japanese restaurant in Sao Paulo, Brazil. It is beautifully designed and decorated, the food is a joy and great celebration. The presentation and preparation are very entertaining and the food itself is absolutely fantastic. Very recommended, however not cheap. Enjoy

We went to Shintori on a recent trip to Sao Paulo. Upon arriving we requested Teppanyaki and were told "no" in Portuguese and escorted to a lounge table. We figured out that this was the waiting room for the Teppanyaki as people were taken back to the main restaurant table by table. We ordered a bottle of wine on special,... More

The decoration is amazing, I love the inner garden. Try one of the sushi samplers; it is expensive but totally worth it! The tempura is amazing

We went there this week with some friends and our kids. The restaurant has a very nice bar with live music and offers also Teppanyaki style, where a cook prepares the food in front of you at a steel cooking plate. Of course we choose this and were very satisfied. Plenty of fodd with excellent quality is offered already with... More
