This is the best unagi in Rio for sure! Special selection of imported sea food makes a lot of difference. Dedicated staff and very traditional but modern take on japanese cusine. For desert I recommend the guava spring rolls with cheese icecream!

A traditional sushi house in Tijuca, itself a traditional neighborhood in Rio. Clean and simple ambiance, traditional japanese environment, courteous and professional staff. Very good and very fresh fish, good traditional soup, nice caramelized fruits for dessert. Worth going. Not cheap but worthwile.
