Just excellent. the view, the service (a little slow), the food. Brilliant food. The rice is very different from other places, the salmon is perfect. Wil return again and again. :-)

“Not so great...”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

Maybe it's me but I can't imagine going back to this restaurante. However can't say this was a bad experience, I really think the owners should think in other type of restaurante, I expect so much more from a sushi place. At least the prices should be lower, and only raised along the learning process.

“Very good Sushi”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

Went there several times and keep coming back.
Everything is very fresh and a lot of different options to choose from.
Ask them for help if you are unsure of what to have , or just go on one of the days where you can eat all you want for a set price. Can't go wrong.
The area is very nice, by the water, nice views. Parking isn't easy, but not impossible.
Reservation is essential.

“Great sushi is a joy to experience... with a breathtaking view”
Reviewed 1 May 2013

As you know I’m a little crazy about Sushi, always trying to discover new and exciting places. Very recently found the new Gaijin, another hidden gem near Lisbon, in a local where most of us pass every day (Marginal Lisboa-Cascais).

It's been said that the first rule of real estate is location, location, location, and this place take it very serious, I can tell you it’s one of the best views overlooking world-famous “Foz do Tejo” and “Marginal” gives meaning to the expression “breathtaking”. It’s a perfect setting for a quick business lunch, a romantic Dinner or a magnificent Sunset drinking a Sake or Sapporo Beer with your friends enjoying a plate of sushi. Taking full advantage of its stunning location overlooking the cruise ships entering “Tejo”. A Tip request to be sit at the first floor

The food experience at Gaijin was outstanding! Once you've tasted their freshest fish exquisitely prepared, well-presented, really match the views. You need to taste their super-fresh sashimi and their signature “volcano Sushi” it’s a true explosion of flavors.

Before leaving my testimony and contribution was reading some of the existing reviews and with me I need to say that service was excellent, very friendly and cordial. It’s not that outstanding however with no flaws. Prices are very reasonable and affordable for a Sushi Restaurant.

PS: regarding the wines, please look at their selection, it surprise me for a Japanese Restaurant.
