I was looking for Japanese cuisine in Campinas, had been to Matsu (also good) so thought I'd try somewhere different. Great ambience and reasonably priced. More used to eating in São Paulo, this came as a surprise.
I have a miso soup, some chicken starter dish and a mixed tempura. The food was excellent, dips very nice, I'd go again.
I wouldn't call it authentic Japanese food, but it is a very good contemporary Brazilian style Japanese restaurant. (One negative to leave off with, Service was a bit slow)

Japanese food with great ambient, good looking people, great for couples and dinner before going out.
Candle lights in all tables, a DJ makes the sound with a very good taste in most part of the time.
Service could be better, but they are always trying to improve, nothing to worry.

Yes, it was raw fish, but why? Those are not Sushi grade fish, there for should been cooked. Diaria when you travel is the last thing you need.

This is a very bad experience for families, couples, every human in the face of earth. They really lack of service, cocktails are wrong (if you want to drink whateaver they want you to drink, just ask and wait 45 min to get). The manager and staff are so proud to get a recent Veja (as they call that), they are blind. Be aware: they have a buffet option. If you decide to walk there and only look, they will charge you around 35 bucks (USD) each person. If you are not gettting anything from there, you don't have to pay for a quick look, right... RIGHT? Imagine this situation: Remove everything from there, just keep the japanese food and no drinks, no water, no staff around you pushing your family to order... The food is really amazing, but nobody will be there to help you get it.

Overall a nice restaurant just adjacent to the Vitoria hotel in Campinas Brasil. Walked in with reservation on a Wednesday evening about 9PM and the restaurant was packed. We were a party of 8 and in about 10 minutes they were able to seat us. Overall food was good, but it was obvious they push the salmon Sushi and sashimi. The food was very fresh and truly high grade. Restaurant was very contemporary style design and clearly a gather spot for younger professionals to meet, eat and have a few drinks at the end of a long day. Overall the meal was a bit pricey, about $350 USD and no alcohol was purchased since the new driving laws in Brasil are zero tolerance for alcohol. Overall it was a very good meal an good service.
