I have eaten here on various occasions, usually with clients who had heard of the place's "reputation". It was (and maybe still is) the place where the self-obsessed glitterati of Rio go to be seen eating what they think is really traditional Japanese food. This has been cleverly capitalised on by the owners who get punters in there in the... More

Pretentious and overpriced. It's the best definition. The food is OK. The service is really good and the place is comfortable though.

The place is a little dark and the service is fine. We had a Guiosa (starter) that was horrible. Tasteless and the pasta was dry and some parts were raw. But the sushi was great. Very fresh fishes and excellent rice in appropriate proportion. Tuna fish was particular tasty. The price is a little bit higher, but for the sushi,... More

Been to Sushi Leblon after many recommendations from locals (friends, family, etc) recently. The food is very good, authentic sushi and great selection and menu. Food is delicious. The service was ok, even when there was someone around to take your order they would be day dreaming and not really paying attention to the customers who needed assistance. It can,... More

I went to this restaurant this week when I was in Rio for work, Service was excellent, the sushi was quite good. The neighborhood was very relaxed and nice.

I've been here about 10 times now over the past 5 years. Yes the service is unfriendly. Yes you usually have to wait a long time for a table. Typically these things mean I don't visit a restaurant twice, but I will put up with a lot to get my hands on the food here!! I eat a lot of... More

It's such a shame when a restaurant has good food but the service is just lacks zest and relies too much on attitude. Even though we had a booking we weren't treated with any smiles or friendliness. Food was excellent although little help provided to navigate the menu. We love sushi but would not return - just too much attitude.

Restaurant itself is very nice and I would probable bring customers if I was on a business trip. The sushi though is all right but not great compared to some great sushi restaurants we went to in Montreal and Vancouver. To be fair, we didn't order any of their specialties, we only ordered a combo and a couple of pretty... More

For sushi lovers, high quality, elegant accommodation and medium/large portions. Fish freshness and experimenting creativity in the presentation makes the real difference of the sushi served. Excellent selection japonese beer selection. Crowded for lunch. Better to reserve. Medium-high prices balanced by the high quality. Recommended.
