I had 2 meals here on my last trip to Niteroi. Heading into Icarai in an Uber is super easy, and Gendai is just off a square area that can get quite busy and fun in the evenings. The restaurant itself has a quirky design, really helpful staff, some of whom speak english, and will even attempt to understand terribly... More

Gendai serves nice Sushi but I missed the Sashimi. The service was OK. The restaurant is located in 2nd floor of the Plaza shopping in the food court so it can be noisy.

This is the best japonese restaurant in Niteroi, but it is very expensive. Try those desserts. The food is always fresh.

Either in Piratininga or Icaraí, both restaurantes are great. Great food, great variety and quality. It is a little bit expensive during weekends, but it is worth it.

Everything you can expect from a Japanese place: very nice atmosphere, excellent fresh fish (and other meats as well), superb service, discounts for small children and tasty cocktails. If you are in Niterói and crave some sushi/sashimi and other traditional & novelty oriental cuisine you cannot miss going to this place!

It's a good choice to go for a nice cost / benefit Japanese Food. You're going to find a reasonable variety of options of typical or "new style" dishes with a nice atmosphere.
