NIPON (not nippon) is not flashy, but being the best day in and day out it doesn't need to be. Whether a business lunch self serve or a formal evening meal, it serves traditional japanese fare in a non complicated, but highly attentive fashion. The restaurant has been a favorite of ours for at least 7 years usually dining there... More

I deal here with Nippon at 207 Sul Bloco C, loja 17, or Nippon Gourmet (quite a pretentious designation), where you could have a taste of Japan cooking in fast-food fashion.

For a menu of all you can eat I paid 50 BRL plus drinks and tips. The food was very fresh and chef really good, always preparing wide variety of sushi, both traditional and fusion.

This is a good Japanese buffet. It's probably the best one in Brasilia, but it could be better.

As a local resident, almost always I visit "Nippon" and "Nippon Gourmet" at 403 Sul and 207 Sul, to saciate my urge for japanese food! Always fresh products, very nice service and good ambiance! Price is around USD30,00 for the buffet (all you can eat) not including drinks and 10% tip . Also NO Wifi at premise. : (
