This place is under new management, and has changed much for the worse. It's been 'refurbished' - the only difference I could notice was unpleasant cold overhead lighting - the toilets certainly hadn't been improved and were not not clean. The service was annoying -...More

I've never been in Japan so my opinion is based on a comparison with other restaurants. Go to Nik from Tuesday to Thursday at lunch when it's cheap. Don't go at night or during the weekend, it's not worth it. Sushi ok, nothing special. Tempura...More

Excellent Sushi. Best Californian Maki Sushi ever. Also try the hot Nik Sushi. Miso soup was a bit less authentic. Highly recommended.

This place is fun. Probably not the best sushi in town, but we had a good meal in a great asmophere. Not pretencious, friendly staff and great service. Would recommend this place for a casual dinner. Not expensive.

Ipanema is considered Rio's crown jewel. It offers the
best view of the sunset from Arpoador and is
inspiration for the legendary song, “The Girl from
Ipanema.” Ipanema is an upscale area, home to many
high-end restaurants and luxury shops, many of which
can be found on the charming Garcia d'Ávila Avenue.
The neighbourhood is very rich culturally, housing
many art galleries that show contemporary art. There
