For sushi lovers, high quality, elegant accommodation and medium/large portions. Fish freshness and experimenting creativity in the presentation makes the real difference of the sushi served. Excellent selection japonese beer selection. Crowded for lunch. Better to reserve. Medium-high prices balanced by the high quality. Recommended.

Incredibly busy, very charming and helpful girl at the door. Great people inside but the food is not special. Presentation not what I expect from a good Japanese restaurant. Big portions of average fish quality not worth the price,the long standing queue at the door and the overcrowded inside.

This place was buzzing when I visited for lunch on a Tuesday. Service: friendly, young, accommodating. The open sushi station with four chefs (non-jap) beavering away in 2 square meters is probably this establishments greatest sales pitch. Service wasn't rapid, but then again the place was full. Quality in the plate. Not cheap, but when one's dealing with raw food... More

We chose to sit at the bar and thus received fantastic service and were able to see the chefs prepare the plates. Between two of us we shared a sashimi and a sushi platter and due to HUGE servings could not finish them. Incredibly fresh food prepared right in front of you. If you feel like sushi, make sure you... More

Sushi Leblon has its fans, but I'm not one of them. Three stars is slightly unfair as the food can be very good (tuna with foie gras for instance), and there are decent wine (presumably sake too) options by the glass. The whole experience is depressing, though: the cramped room, the small terrace (which I prefer), the ugliness of the... More

This place gets busy from 7.30 with long queues after 8. We were glad we sat at the bar where you can watch the sashimi and sushi being made. Servings are a great size and with so much to choose from, we opted for the sushi platter and the sashimi platter which was enormous. Service good but not great -... More

We went there for a light dinner on the fly and ended up with an amazing experience. Only 3 plates but worth the wait for a table, actually not so long, it was only around 10 minutes or less but the salmon carpaccio and the tuna tartar where spectacular! We had also Vodka Caipiroscas with an amazing taste. Go there... More

The food was unbelievable, but the service was really poor: they lost our booking, we had to wait for 15 minutes before they provided us with a drinks menu, the waiter gave us the wrong drink three times (and included all of them on the bill). On top of all of that they were quite unfriendly. I wouldn't let this... More

hi Laura, we rarely accept bookings, and when we do, we really cant give a window bigger than 15 minutes for the customer to arrive, as, as you saw, we have quite a few people dying to get in. We are, however, sorry about the bill mix up, which I believe we rectified in the end. So thanks for the... More

Exquisite prepared good looking dishes, under a cozy atmosphere in the heart of Ipanema/Leblon . A wide and complete variety of sushi and dedicated menu will satisfy anyone who is looking for something special.
