Description: Mitsuo. Ou, em bom Português, o "terceiro filho." O negócio surgiu da ideia de criar um sushibar de proporções reduzidas com vários diferenciais que oferecessem para os frequentadores do lugar uma grande experiência. Entre eles estão a comida saudável, o espaço acolhedor e a boa música como pano de fundo para acompanhar o sushi feito com todo cuidado que a casa oferece. Venha nos conhecer.

All the sushi dishes we ordered were delicious and well designed (attractive to the eye). Sometimes a bit too much philadelphia cheese - but apart from that we really enjoyed the food.

A small, intimate and informal place, seats perhaps 40 people, appealing to a younger crowd. The menu is varied.

Had mixed feelings about the food: while quality of the fish was excellent, the rice felt a bit dull, missing in seasoning. The wasabi was way too loose.

Mixed feelings also regarding service: attentive and fast alright, but at a certain point the waiter accidentally dipped his finger in our wasabi tray, and just wiped his finger off without replacing the tray.

The overall experience was alright, but there are a few things missing in order to make Mitsuo Japinha stand above your average sushi joint.

The restaurant is tiny fitting only a few diners at a time, but this just added to the fun atmosphere. Everything we ate was exceptional and reasonably priced. It was made in front of us as we sat at the bar and the waiter was extremely friendly and helpful even though we spoke little Portuguese. Highly recommend.

We sat down, tables were quite too close but service was really excellent and quick. We ordered and the food arrived in less than five minutes. Price is fair, hot ones was good but I've tasted better. Sushi was delicious and fresh with a great presentation. I would definitely recommend
