Visited recently prior to seeing a show. Service was prompt and attentive. Sushi menu was creative and the food was delicious. Sushi pizza was unique and tasty.

“Over-rated, tasteless”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

It looks creative and trendy but all dishes are pretty much prepared with same sauce. Quality of the fish/shrimp is good but preparation doesn't add anything. Very expensive and totally over-rated.

“Sushi all you can eay (rodizio)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

The food was quite good (i would give it 3 and 1/2 but don't have the option) and the service was close to excellent. Ate here 2 times recently and had a good experience! Ive lived in Vancouver/Canada for many years and my sushi level is quite high otherwise would have probably rated it 4 for food or higher!

“Good Sushi at Maneki Neko”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Recently had dinner at Maneki Neko with some friends (the one in Barra... it was not listed in Trip advisor, so posting under this one). The service was very good and the waitress was very helpful, bringing as many dishes as we asked for fairly quickly. Price was reasonable (for Brazil), and turned out to be about 100 BRL per person... for all you can eat, and having beer, not too bad.

My previous experience in Sushi Rodizio (all you can eat) in Brazil has not been terrific, and generally I have found the quality of the fish to be mediocre. Here, it was quite good, particularly the Tuna. The samon was fresh but a bit tough.

In general, we had a good time for a price that seemed fair.

“Great creative sushis!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

There is always a little waiting time, but is worth it! The sushis are creative, fusion and traditional. The sake list is good, the fish super fresh, and the ambience is very nice as well as the service.
