“Don't come here”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

I am a fan of good japanese food and will even dare to try some fusion food as well if is worth. But if you want to be disappointed do not come here. The food is below average. The sushi is terribly made, the rice is almost a pureé instead of being the authentic and classic sticky rice.The sashimi is far from being fresh and the tataki wasn't made in the correct way. The service is rather bad. Now... the prices...GOD! I have no idea how they dare to charge so much for such terrible food. If you are a tourist, or not, used to some good japanese food avoid it. It is rather a tacky place where locals go to exhibit themselves and pay high amounts of money for nothing. I'll suggest another restaurant close by, called MIYAKO, decent prices and despite the modest atmosphere you'll find authentic japanese food.

“I wouldn't call that sushi”
Reviewed 23 April 2013

Terribly disappointing experience. The tempura wasn't real tempura but more like broasted fish. The miso soup was tasteless. The rolls nothing spectacular. The caipirinha is made with the cheapest cachaça in the market. Worst sushi I've ever had.

“Great tasting sushi!”
Reviewed 28 January 2013

Whenever I stay in Ciudad del Este, I love stealing a night in Foz to eat at Hokkai. The fish is always fresh, and delicious, even by international standards. Sushi and caipirinhas, what more can you ask for?

“Pretty average sushi...”
Reviewed 29 August 2012

Not bad, not great either. Service was decent although the caipirinha was poor. The meal deal was sizeable with pickled vegetables, rice, miso, gyoza and some decent nigiri. Average meal at a little more than would have expected to pay.

“Average Japanese”
Reviewed 23 August 2012

I cannot say it was bad but it was not particularly good either. Sushi was correct and fresh but not particularly tasty, with the exception of tuna, that was quite good.
