It is a place specialized in northeastern brazilian food. Usually is to crowded on lunch time and weekends, they work on a self self system. The food is quite good, I like a lot the decoration is something neat. I prefer to go there for dinner do not like much people and lines, believe me you can face huge lines to enter and take the food, but this is the only odd thing the food is really good.

This is a great place to taste the Northeastern Brazilian Food in Brasilia, Brazil. It's self service restaurant with a buffet and you pay per kilo. There is a lot of options to choose from and it is really hard to decide between all the different dishes with "carne de sol" (good thing the plate is huge, but keep in mind that you pay per kilo...). Remember to order a manioc bread to take home! They are also a bit pricey but delicious!

They have a very good variety of typical Brazilian food from Northeastern region, will good quality and flavor, and the place is very pleasant. Just be carefull this is not a all-you-can-eat type of buffet, so you pay by weight (kilo) and it may end up expensive if you to not behave and let it go and the food is so tasty. My suggestion to avoid surprises is to start with a sample plate, with tiny portion of what you want to try and then repeat only what you like the most.
