Description: Modern Japanese restaurant, with traditional roots Restaurant Ki, specialized in Japanese cuisine, offers a remarkable gastronomic proposal in Rio de Janeiro. Experienced Chef Omura is behind the sushi bar and responsible for the menu that offers a variety of traditional and distinct oriental dishes based on beef; fish; seafood; vegetarian; exotic delicacies as well as contemporary recipes enjoyed either at the bar or at a table. With fresh and seasonal ingredients Ki wants to indulge clients seeking an exquisite gastronomic experience, with elaborate freshly made recipes. Improvisation is one of the most remarkable traits of Japanese cuisine and this is characteristic of Omura. At Ki you will be able to experience a fusion of tradition and modern variants, in a revitalized menu, never neglecting the essence of Nipponese cuisine. Ki serves the dishes on lovely exclusive handmade ceramics. Do look at the sake list with premium labels. Some are artisanal, with a wide range of types of rice, different polishing ratios and some award winning labels. Ki is located on charming Fonte da Saudade Street with its gorgeous trees and parallel to the Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon. For 4 years, the comfortable 2 floor corner house allows clients to choose a table on one of the three balconies or one of the 5 tatami tables, 2 of them private and can sit 90 people. Ki has been shortlisted twice by the Comer & Beber guide of Veja Rio Magazine and in 2013 and 2014 received the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Ki is one of the best sushi restaurants I have every had. I travel all over the world and have had sushi everywhere. Ki is one of the best. Fresh sushi, great service. The chef and owner are great people. They come over to your table and check on you personally.
If you are in Rio, you must try Ki!

Ki is my favorite Japanese restaurante in Rio. Excellent location and service and the "Vitória Régia" dish is out of this world! You will be thinking of it for weeks...

My wife and I were searching for vegetarian sushi during a 4 day visit to Rio. An email sent to Ki asking if there would be an english speaking staff member able to assist us was responded to in minutes, and off we went.

Peter and the team could not have done more to ensure we had a fantastic experience. The food was amazing, and the service fantastic

It was so good we went back the next day for a three hour lunch!

If you are looking for a great sushi place with english speaking staff, this is a great choice!

Tip! - send an email first noting any special requirements.
