The food here is fine. The service is poor. Had trouble finding the staff. All five of us ordered the buffet. The dessert is included, but we were charged for it on our bill. The waiter claimed we ordered a dessert that was not included....More

This is a very simple japanese restaurant. The food is quite good and so is the service. They do offer delivery at your house.

Excellent sushi and sashimi. There is a buffet lunch with unbeatable price-performance ratio. Service is friendly and the Heineken is cold. What else could you want? The inside is rather run-down but you don´t come to sushi in Ipanema because of the décor, do you?
