“Not worth the money”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

There was a time when you couldn't get a decent piece of sushi in Maputo, but that's no excuse for the prices at Aska. The food is more or less Japanese, with a few more or less Korean items on the menu as well. I've had better Japanese and Korean cuisine almost everywhere else I have been in the world, but I have never had to pay such a high price-- get ready to drop US$50 or more for lunch, and be totally underwhelmed. You'll be better off driving the five minutes to the Polana and having the buffet at the A Varanda restaurant inside. (They usually have sushi on their daily buffet, and it is very well executed. Bonus: you get to have all the other stuff on the buffet as well, and you'll end up paying a little less for a high end lunch, but of much higher quality.

“Best Sushi in town”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

My hubby get's his daily sushi fix here. We've also eaten at teh restaurant and have enjoye the experience. A small shop and no music so a little short on atmosphere but clean cut lines and always spick and span

“Best sushi in Maputo”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

If you want sushi then theres only one place to go in Maputo, not that theres a large selection of sushi restaurants may I add. Slightly expensive but worth it. Fish is fresh and choice is good.
