Enjoyed the combo sushi/sashimi platter - 43 pieces - for Reai 130 (about USD60). Fed two of us easily. Good quality fish and a decent variety. We enjoyed it enough that we went back a second time.

Not worth the price of admission.

Sushi was not fresh and very very expensive for what it is.

Staff were friendly and helpful.

However, we much prefer Ten Kai for fresh, delicious sushi!

It's a small restaurant as the majority of this kind of place requires. The fish is fresh and the usual sushi or sashimi are very good as well as a variety of small dishes preparations as eggplant with salty or sweet sauce are superb not to mention fried tofu with a fabulous sauce. Owners do not seem to expect foreigners of any kind, not even Brazilians, once the restaurant is 100% Japanese.
It is expensive for Brazilians, not for foreigners. A good try for Japanese food lovers in Rio.

Lonely Planet recommended this place so we were pretty excited to eat there. They tried to price gouge us with bizarre charges - The place is not friendly to gringos, surprisingly since it is in Copacobana, the heaven for turistas.

The sushi here was delicious, but I have to say a bit on the pricey side. I would have given it 5 stars, but for the equivalent of 5 rolls between the two of us plus two caipirinhas, it was almost $120 Canadian! That's a bit steep I think.......
Again great sushi, but not for just a regular sushi craving kinda night out! The search continues......
