This amazing restaurant have it's own tatami for four people with the traditional Japanese restaurant style. The sushi is amazing, edamame has its own flavor salty and spicy. The sashimi is spectacular. Every item is well performed. Love this place. Highly recommended.

Our older son loves this restaurant! We are clients here for 2 years and even with the economic situation in Venezuela they have aways offer exceptional service, delicious soup as starter, great sashimi and creative rolls! The chocolate fondue is a must and the bartender makes a special "saquerinha" which is caipinhinha with sake.

The restaurant changed its name to Fugu recently. It is a fancy Japanese restaurant located in one of the most popular zones in Caracas.
