Expensive but worthwhile

While Sao Paulo is known for having quite good sushi (I've even enjoyed sushi in GRU airport, Terminal 3), Kinoshita is one of the best I've had in country and in the world.

This place is like a studio full of artists. I thought I had tried enough Japanese food in NYC but this place is probably my best Japanese food experience. Amazing staff, great ambiance, good looking crowd.... this one is an absolute must visit !!!

This is the first review I've ever written, inspired by an absolutely incredible meal. I'm from San Francisco, in town on business and had a free night to myself. I asked for the best Japanese restaurant in town and was not disappointed. In fact, this is the best Japanese I've ever had, including Tokyo. I had the 7 course Omikase... More

After living in NY, LA and Miami this cozy and beautifully decorated restaurant has what it takes to take the crown as the best sushi in Sāo Paolo.

Tsuyoshi Murakami is an awesome chef. Very personable friendly and cultured. I enjoyed the 7 courses very much and the chef even through in an extra desert.

I was not disappointed in anything I have tried there. It is pricy, but with a great quality! Also, food is comparable to great places in NY... More

The tasting menu costs 300 reais with some few small dishes that don't surprise. They are well prepared but lacks originality or creativity. The ingredients are regular. Meat was hard and with nerves. Sashimi had one slice of each size in a plate with four small pieces. One of them had a nice taste. Service is imprecise, don't level with... More

São Paolo's answer to Nobu and Zuma! After a week of being 'steaked out' in the US I wanted to eat Japanese. I came across Kinoshita on the UK Guardian web site on their list of top 10 restaurants in Sao Paolo. This place blew me away! I went for the 7 course Matsu meal and every single course was... More
