Good place for sushi

This is a reliable sushi place! Food is well prepared and fresh. Portions are good sized and nicely presented. There is usually a live artist playing and singing in the restaurant so it is very cozy. Go for the truffle salmon sashimi!

Found this place as it was within walking distance from our hotel and had decent reviews. Unfortunately, our experience was not as good as what others reported. The atmosphere was good, it was quite full of mostly couples. On this particular evening they had a one (wo)man band playing a guitar and singing a variety of cover songs. So far,... More

Very nice option for a happy hour after hard day. Gone with workmates and we love the food, the music and the place overall! Don't forget the name of the group but remember it was a duet who sing and play wonderfully (guitar, piano)

Cool place in the heart of the financial district. Nice atmosphere not too business formal even if we had lunch. A good piano player helped this to happen. Pretty large menu with lots of choices. Be aware there are no pictures on the menu and out copies were in Portuguese. So it might be hard to understand Service is quick... More

Great place, outstanding service and incredibly good food. What a delicious dinner, fresh and tasty fish. Really deserves a visit. We are fans of Japanese good but few places outside Japan offer you such quality and variety. Only one hick up is life music so loud that makes your conversation almost impossible, despite the fact that some friend gave us... More

We had a wonderful meal here a few days ago. They know little or no English and we know little Portuguese. Thus, each dish we ordered was an experiment. We ordered three and two were extraordinary. The octopus in a curry sauce was fabulous and the other was a trio of taste, including muscles and foie gras. Our third dish... More

This place is alive! Great ambiance, live music, friendly staff. And the food... amazing! Don't miss the salmon belly, the hamachi sashimi and any sushi platter. I will come back every time I visit Saõ Paulo.

if you plan to talk with your friends, be careful. The music was so loud that we need to scream to get heard. The stairs leading to second floor are a risk specially when you come down, not for everyone.

I was very impressed. The food was excellent! The combo was very tasty, creative. I am not very keen to live music, however I have to admit that the music is very good ("jam"). Make reservations. I was there Friday night and it was packed!
