It is an expensive restaurant. You should be prepared before you go there. The atmosphere is wonderful, really relaxing, full of pillows, plants and color. It makes you feel like you are in Arabia! Unfortunately I was there with two friends during the "Restaurant Week SP" and the food was not good at all. One of us ordered a "Risoto de galinha D'angola" (chicken risotto d'Angola) and it tasted like a bad chicken soup trying to be a risotto. No salt, no condiment, no texture. It was a terrible choice, it almost looked like they had chosen the 3 worst dishes just because we were not paying so much. On the other hand I took a look at the menu. Delicious dishes were offered, but of course the price difference between the good dish and the Restaurant week dish were HUGE. Nevertheless, I would go back to try something new, perhaps a chicken risotto with chicken from another african country!!

This is for me the best restaurant in town for several years. Nevertheless, since the change in chef, the inclusion of a sort of art gallery in the restaurant messed up with the two best things the restaurant had - the originality and quality of food and the ambiance of the dining room. The former is now average, having lost the glamour of mixing oriental flavours in a western way. The latter brought too much light to a former romantic and cosy place. Because the price stayed the same, not good value for money...

If you want to have a new experience in São Paulo, go to Chakras, where you will have the best food in a espetacular and original place. You can book a table outside or a bed inside. Yes, they have beds inside where you can try all the asian food on a bed.
Great place, indeed.

This a truly excellent restaurant combining excellent food, amazing ambiance and sublime service. We live in Sao Paulo and this restaurant really stands out.

The restaurant is very tastefully decorated and has obviously had significant investment in the premises. Everything from the retracting roof through to the individualised arabian tents that we enjoyed makes this feel like a special experience.

We had the tasting menu and it was divine - each course was outstanding. The service was attentive, friendly but not overbearing and all in all made for an excellent meal. This is not the cheapest option in Sao Paulo but you get what you pay for and we will definitely return.

The food is amazing, the ambiance is incredible, the concept is unique! Gastronomy, Art, Ambiance and Music under the same roof...or let’s say under the beautiful stars of Sao Paulo!! The restaurant has retractile roofs that give us, visitors, the feeling of being outside of this crazy metropolis in a real oasis! A restaurant that every city needs!
