This is the best chain sushi place in Brazil. It's a bti expensive, but all branches have monthly novelties in the menu. Quite some fusion with Brazilian food, but not as much as Lapamaki. They have "all you can eat" option in all branches. The one at Av. Ayrton Senna is quite large and can be busy for dinner.

The quality is sub-par for the price asked (~BRL100 for adults and ~BRL50 for kids 6-10yo). All hot rolls were NOT hot, and even after I told the waiter to bring a new HOT hot roll batch, it was still coldish. Talking about waiters, they all su*k, terrible professionals, you almost need to scream to get one on your table,... More

I went to their restaurant in Ipanema, which was pretty packed. Just to be sure we made a call. Especially if you want to sit in the patio, which has an open roof, I would recommend to call. The menu is extensive, great in quality, and you will discover various creative sushi. Definitely worth paying a visit whilst in Rio.

I love Manekineko´s simplicity, athough sometimes prcies can be a little high according to the quality. The service is mostly good and the waiters are very simpathetic. The fish is always fresh and the dishes are quite inventive, which is one of the reasons why I like going there! A lot of different japanese food variations. The mount fiji is... More

We visited this restaurant a year ago and it was actually pretty good. I recall little disposable toothbrushes and toothpaste in the toilets which I thought was a nice touch. Fast forward a year to May 2015 and it couldn't have been more different; although the service was ok (considering we were a large group of people with kids) the... More

I was at restaurant with my mom on Sunday at about 4.30am. The restaurant was not busy but service was terrible. It seemed the waiter was annoyed to see us coming at that time. Worst thing is that they charge guests 12.5% of bill for such unpleasant experience. In addition the food was not good I even got fish bone... More
