Very good sushi, good quality and they also have delivery service. Good option to eat an excellent sushi. Of course, it is always better to eat at the restaurant.

The food there are always delicious and very fresh, but the service used to be so much better. We had to ask many times for more sauces, and after ordered two times the rodízio, nobody bother to see if we wanted a third time. The four star is for the food quality.

We were in a party of 11. We had a table upstairs. Service was quite fast. Food is OK. Hubby ordered Yakisoba but it was very salty - excess of soy sauce - and the noodles had a strong butter flavor. We tried several dishes, and our bill was close to USD 250 including only sodas... quite expensive.

Being a regular to many Manekinekos in Rio it is hard to review this one in such a bad way, but The Cobal branch is in dire need of a restructuring. Food is still good, as it is with the other branches. Service however is pitiful to say the least. We had to continuously ask for someone to come to... More

We chose degustation menu and for my opinion is was over priced. Pieces was very small. I do not recommend.

We have been here several times for dinner, always nicely presentated and good sushi. Yesterday we went for lunch, and that is a good deal!

We didn't try much of the brazilian-japanese fusion, and chose rather safe options from the menu, but everything we had was very tasty. Great location, good food, good service.

We went to Marekineko in Leblon for a Sunday lunch and expected an above average sushi experience. Sadly, we found the service staff attentive, the food mediocre and the prices above average even for Leblon restaurants. I would not say the experience was disappointing, but it certainly was not the experience I expected. There is better priced sushi in the... More

Very good. We had the haddock chips and the summer mix. Great quality for the price. Service was a bit confused but nice I'm going back again if I can make a reservation since nobody answers the phone. Typical place with great food but missing lots of opportunities to involve clients.

All the Manekinekos are really rather a safe bet to go to, a great selection of Japanese food including home-invented ones, recommended!
