“Not worth the money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

There was a time when you couldn't get a decent piece of sushi in Maputo, but that's no excuse for the prices at Aska. The food is more or less Japanese, with a few more or less Korean items on the menu as well. I've had better Japanese and Korean cuisine almost everywhere else I have been in the world, but I have never had to pay such a high price-- get ready to drop US$50 or more for lunch, and be totally underwhelmed. You'll be better off driving the five minutes to the Polana and having the buffet at the A Varanda restaurant inside. (They usually have sushi on their daily buffet, and it is very well executed. Bonus: you get to have all the other stuff on the buffet as well, and you'll end up paying a little less for a high end lunch, but of much higher quality.

“Best Sushi in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

My hubby get's his daily sushi fix here. We've also eaten at teh restaurant and have enjoye the experience. A small shop and no music so a little short on atmosphere but clean cut lines and always spick and span

“Best sushi in Maputo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

If you want sushi then theres only one place to go in Maputo, not that theres a large selection of sushi restaurants may I add. Slightly expensive but worth it. Fish is fresh and choice is good.
