Food tastes great, service is slow but understandable since the owners are the chef and server. Price point is a little high and the portions are small. But I will be back for sure.

New Year’s Eve 2015 - Family tradition to scour the SEA metro area for food from a new "Country" - This year was Brazil. Family of five and two close friends. It was quite cold that night, and if the place has heat, it wasn't working, and small space heaters were losing the battle - not a crisis - but... More

Just been there, delicious food, great cosy environment, Bahia style (for who knows it). Dishes are individual, good to remember, price is not so cheap but is worth it. Wednesday there's samba and acarajé.

Having enjoyed wonderful Brazilian food on vacation to the country, it's such a pleasant surprise not to have to go far to enjoy the food again. Located in the University district, this simple home cooking restaurant provides a welcome piece of Brazil in the Pacific Northwest. They have all the popular dishes and a nice selection of protein: chicken, beef... More

So when you first see this restaurant your thinking to yourself this might not turn out so good. But then I got to looking and thinking this looks like many small family run hole in the walls you see in more tropical areas rather than a big city. So why not check it out further? First stop was the restroom.... More

Our family of 12 loved this Restaurant. We wanted Brazilian cuisine and were not disappointed! They had space for us inside the air conditioned inner area. Fresh cooked, authentic selections and friendly service! Was not busy yet, so we were served in timely fashion for such a large group!

The food was all right. Overpriced but tasted ok. The service was not good at all. They were somehow lost... They did not have half the items on the dessert menu and the drinks we all right.

My partner and I made reservation for dinner here. The place was very busy, it took 15 minutes for us to be seated because the waiters seem a little disorganized. We ordered caipirinhas, a Brazilian cocktail. It was excellent and so was the appetizer made up of chicken croquettes with a spicy, tangy sauce on the side. These came fairly... More

We had reservations and arrived on time. The staffing appeared limited and we had to wait at least 10 minutes to see our waitress; we let her know that we had a deadline as we had an event to attend in a couple of hours. 90 minutes after being seated we were still waiting for our entrees. The waitress avoided... More
