If you are expecting a rodisio alike restaurant, this is not the place for you! There are no picanha, maminha or anything related. What you can expect here is the best food from Minas Gerais that you can expect. Amazing rice, amazing pumpkin, amazing meat... I was truly impressed by the food quality. Is a buffet restaurant, and perhaps a... More

I have visited this restaurant several times, with friends or with family. It has a great price for the buffet and there is more than enough variety. Of course, the food is delicious. For the drinks you have to pay extra. I always have the caipirinha, which they also prepare very well. Also, the owner of the restaurant is really... More

We are from the state of Minas Gerais in Brazil and we can then validate the authenticy and quality of the food. It's true that the ambient could be better decorated to represent the state, but this is minor... We had the opportunity to talk to the chef and the onwer and they were great, passionate people and it's the... More

I don't rate it as a 5 because is a buffet restaurant and because the atmosphere could be much more special. However, I can say it can be special when there's alive traditional Brazilian music which... More

Looking for a Brazilian restaurant, I found a recommendation for the “Uai!” which is specialised in cuisine from the region Minas Gerais. Before undertaking the gastronomical discovery tour, we started the evening with perfect caipirinhas. The delicious food is organised as a buffet. The owners are happy to explain every single dish. The atmosphere is young and lively. A great... More

I am brazilian, and I love the food from Minas Gerais. And I decided to try this restaurant but with no expectation. You maybe don't believe, but this food... wow.... is so perfect!!! The owner loves this particular brazilian culture and is always there, and talks to costumers and stand next to the buffet explaining everything. He has a collection... More
