When it comes to sushi outside Japan I am sceptical. You can get every quality level also in places with high rating. This was such a lovely surprise: excellent fish quality (and getting that is more than half the way) and the cooks know what...More

I understand the political and economic situation we're in right now in Brazil, but the prices of Nagayama are outrageous. We were having a normal dinner, nothing fancy. We ordered 2 tirashi's,1 Ebiten and 2 sakes and 1 mineral water. No dessert and no coffee....More

São Paulo is a place to eat Japanese food and in my opinion Nagayama is one of the best. The fish is the freshest, the service is fantastic and the creativity of the chefs delicious.

Have whatever the chef tells you to eat. It was unusual and delicious. Get there early as there was a queue from 7.45 onwards. Great sashimi and sushi.

First of all, this is not a cafe, it is a Japanese restaurant. Second, there are three separate locations in Itaim, literally one beside the other (one is Nagayama Cafe, the other is Naga, the third I don't know the name). The menus vary in...More

Went there for a business dinner with a group of foreigners who were looking for investments in Sao Paulo. We order a little bit of everything that the waiter suggested us as portions are really small and they don't serve those combos with more than...More
