If you are walking in the Ipanema's neighborhood, searching for a good place to have a meal, you could have some troubles, because food is not cheap and, worst, many places are really expensive and low level here.
So, if you like Japanese food, if atmosphere is not a real deal to you, this could be a good option to eat.
This place is tiny indeed (do not go there if you are more than 6), the menu is not so wide, but the general standard is good.
And, above all, prices are honest here (100 BRL a couple).

My husband and I had a great Rodizio de Sushi at Yuuki Sushi bar in Ipanema. The food was tasty, and the price was a little lower than other all-you-can-eat sushi's in the area. One comment we had was the food felt more authentic than what we can get where we live. The sushi was not heavy with lots of rice, or tons of cream cheese. The wasabi was HOT and the ginger was a natural color and not bright pink. The fish was fresh and delicious. We ate our limit of sashimi, the pieces were thick cut and tasted wonderful. The tuna in particular great. We mostly focused on the fish and stayed away from the appetizers, but did have a bowl of miso that was flavorful and delicious.
The place is beautiful but tiny, luckily it was a Tuesday night so we almost had the whole restaurant to ourselves. I might try and go back tonight!

A tiny hole-in-the-wall restaurant/sushi bar a few blocks back from Ipanema Beach, Yuuki serves outstanding quality Japanese at affordable prices.
The menu features some innovative and delicious dishes that would put much pricier restaurants to shame.
Service is helpful and friendly and the charming young owner, Alessandra is a delight.
Highly recommended.

We had dinner here twice in July 10. Ultra-small and cool sushi bar with a very competent and creative kitchen and an excellent service provided by the owner herself. The fish are extremely delicious due to special deliveries. This restaurant can easily be overlooked because of it size but it deserves honour for the excessive quality. It has a clear cult potential if the standard we experienced is kept.
