This place, hidden away up a steep stair in a side street of Porto Alegre, serves sushi that rivals a good New York or Los Angeles sushi restaurant. It ranks comfortably above the typical sushi joint I’ve come across in Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay. The...More

No jokes, they serve the best sushi I have ever had (outside of Japan)! The restaurant offers limited seats. They cannot fit more than 40 people. Food is excellent! Well prepared and presented. Staff is not of the same league. A more professional staff and...More

I must confess I did not expect to find such a tasty sushi restaurant here in Porto Alegre. The tuna is so fresh it melts in your mouth. Beware that there is not a huge variety of fish so the sushi, sashimi mix might have...More

Second to none in Brazil or US. I have only experienced this level of craftsmanship while living in Tokyo. Seriously, go, sit at the bar and ask for omakase by chef emerson. A quiet Japanese chef that is a master in sushi art.

If you are looking for a good place for lunch that serves sushi you found your winner. Thay have the best all you can eat sushi lunch in the city. From hot tempuras to melt in your mouth sashimi. Worth every penny.
