People that refers to this restaurant as the best sushi in Rio clearly never went to Sushi Leblon! Salmon was not tender at all. Way too expensive for the quality! But there is no waiting line.

Tenkai has become my favorite Japanese restaurant in Rio. The quality of the ingredients and freshness of fish give an edge over other Japanese restaurant. Also the atmosphere is less pretentious and more relaxed than sushi Leblon (where only VIP clients can reserve a table..)and the ambience is far better than Azumi. This time as well I had a positive... More

This is one of the best japanese restaurants in Rio. Everything is always super fresh and made with a lot of care. They have two stations from where you can watch the sushimen work and boy, they are amazing to watch. Unfortunately, all this do not come by cheap.

The food was ok, but very pricy. The service was the worst ever. Could you guys believe that I couldn't seat, even thou the restaurant was empty like the photo bellow.

Great Sushi, great drinks, try Shitake on fire. About R$150 per head with drinks and no desert. However it is worth it.
