Business lunch with mific

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... read 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!

JAM has become my favorite Japanese restaurant in Sao Paulo. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is very nice (it has live music), and the prices are fair. Some surveys, like the one published by the Veja newsmagazine, rate JAM at the same level as other restaurants that are more expensive and serve, in my opinion, food that is not... More

It's unique! Very very beautiful and cosy not a Japanese atmosphere, with jazz sessions.. Food is exquisite too. You must see it!

Wonderful setting with flawless service. We had dinner with a local who assisted us with ordering and every dish was fantastic! Although not cheap, you are getting value for money. Watch out for the drinks - they are stronger than us foreigners are used to ;)

Wonderful fresh seafood and beef served with creativity. The setting is artistic and the live music satisfying. I dine here each time I visit Sao Paulo and always come away feeling happy.
