It's a nice japanese products grocery shop with an attending japanese restaurant. The terrace is very pleasant. The staff is friendly and efficient. Stars are for them. Unforunately, the meal is not good. In the japanese restaurants, I first enjoy a combinado suchi+shashimi, then, if...I still am hungry I take something else. The combinado was with fish which stayed too long in the freezer, any piece was tastless and soft including the sashimi.More

Very good sushi, but needs more vegetarian options. The service was pretty average and it took ages before we could get any attention to get dessert and then another 20 minutes to get the bill. If they up their service game, add a few vegetarian...options this could be some of the best sushi in Copacabana.More

We chose this place as it was just round the block from our hotel. It was busy but we did get a table quite quickly as someone was leaving. The waiter was extremely attentive and you didn't have to ask for things. For example, my...companion has difficulty with cutlery and he noticed and brought a fork. He served us intuitively and I'm sure he will go far in the restaurant business. We had mixed sushi, then a prawn dish and a salmon dish. All beautifully cooked and presented. Altogether an extremely pleasant experience and waiting staff like this are rarely found elsewhere.More

Very casual dining, nothing very special, however would recommend since everything is just well done - good food, very reasonable price, reliable service and pretty tasty and interesting way of Brazilian way to make Japanese food

Great food, bit haphazard in serving, some plates appear fast, others you need to remind them. But very good sushi nonetheless.

Had a wonderful dining experience at Ume sushi ! (December 2019)The food was great - and so was the service ( our waiter was fabulous and had an awesome sense of humor 🤪😂) Food came quickly and left us nice and satisfied! We had sushi,...skewers, spring rolls and soup - fantastic! Definitely worth a visit if you have a craving for sushi in Rio!More

Went here and wasn’t sure what to expect. We have enjoyed everywhere we have eaten so far in our trip but this was on another level. Presentation was well done and sushi was like art! Fresh flavoursome and plenty there we really enjoyed our food....Service was great. Good variety for vegi folk. Fish was fab tuna salmon and variety of different soy sauce..Had a really nice friendly young waiter who spoke good English..if here longer we would go back..and if you prefer - they deliver. For large meal for 4 and a few beers and soft drinks we were R380 inc service charge. Felt very safe walking in the street at night.More

We were staying at the nearby Miramar Windsor hotel and came here 3 days in a row for lunch, because we enjoyed it so much. The sushi is very tasty and due to the buffet (weigh and pay) you can be in and out in...a few mins or Take away is also an option. Or you can order off the menu and make more of a meal of it. For us (from the UK) it was very good value for money.More

The menu is very wide, with different options of sushi and dishes with a variety of vegetables. Optimal cost-quality ratio Recommended: red tuna.

Ume sushi have really pulled their socks up. I lived around the corner but never found it top quality . Must say their food quality has improved a lot, really, the sushi is delicious and the combinations well assorted and prices. Absolutely recommended . Just...one thing: don’t go for the sake nacional, it is terrible (though the team compensated us with a free Japanese one, which is unusual in Brasil service-wise) Então Ume time: por favor, escolhe outro sake nacional, aquele que tem não é gostosoMore

The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional

is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and
traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of
everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs,
chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and
more live side-by-side. There are options for all
price points and tastes. However, the most powerful
