As a Chinese student living in Lisbon, we students loves Japanese food and Chinese food a lot and often go around and find good Jap and Chi restaurants. And this restaurant is the worst Jap restaurant that we ever tried. The service was poor, we waited 1 hour just for 4 small sushi dishes. We ordered at least 15 dishes... More

Very good deal to stuff your stomac, but if you love sushi, walk away; the (chinese) rice is too hard, with no vinegar and too much sugar, the soy sauce is sweet (no alternative), the wasabi tastes like water and the fish is cut too thick (it does not melt) and probably comes right from the freezer. But if you're... More

At 6.90€ lunch buffet (more expensive for dinner) probably you can´t find anything cheaper for japanese food. Location is quite central and easy to find. Regarding the food, the sushi was not by far the best I have tried, the rice texture was a bit hard in my opinion, although the presentation was good in a ship shaped plate. The... More

If you are searching for a decent sushi place, in the city center, then you found it. Located, near Martim Moniz, this restaurant provides decent quality sushi for a low price. I would prefer a slightly larger choice in sushi. Also nice variety of other dishes, like tempura. Overall a nice and primarily cheap sushi place in Lisbon.

This Japanese restaurant is one of the cheapest in Lisbon (maybe the cheapest that I know of) and offers a good enough quality of food. Obviously, for around 12/13€ per person you will not get the quality you get in sushi restaurants where you pay 30/35€, but I've been to this restaurant several times, and I intend to keep going....

We went into the restaurant due to a suggestion from a friend. There is this buffet of around 10 euros where you can eat while you can. A good point is the fact that you dont leave your table, you just choose from the menu and the food arrives shortly after. The payment is also made in the table. The... More

This is a japanese joint run by chinese. It's an all you can eat restaurant with a good selection of hot and cold dishes. Fish is fresh and the rice is tasty. Wines are not expensive but stay away from the sake as it is generic and expensive. Salmon and tuna are very good, but other fish is average. Good... More

My friend and I stumbled across this place for dinner when staying in Lisbon. We were so impressed with the value for money that I really wanted to leave a review for recommendation. If you love Sushi and hot dishes like glazed duck and crispy pork, you can eat to your hearts desire for just €9.90! The food is absolutely... More

We have eaten here twice now during our week in Lisbon. First time was great. Service was great, food was great. Tonight was also great except for the slightly poor service and the waiter who on the first visit was super friendly, on this occasion aappeared to be in a bit of a mood and told us that he 'thinks...
