Variety could be better... Too expensive for the options they had in the "rodízio". A la carte menu is good.

The selection and sophistication might be at a higher level than Nik Sushi, but I really prefer the relaxed environment of Nik Sushi. Howebver to be fair both are very good value for money and what is served is always fresh!

One of the best restaurants in Rio, the chain offers very good Japanese food with a touch modernity Rio's style. Don't miss the red fruits caipirinha and the Mountain Fuji sushi.
