Being in this lovely restaurant I almost forgot for a minute that I'm in Rio de Janeiro. Everything was like in Japan: the interior, the super kind staff and especially the delicious food. We've had both gyozas, agedashi tofu, tempura and the sashimi+sushi set. It...More

I am not good in describing good food (or lousy food), but I am pretty sure the food I took at Azumi on the 25-Nov-2017 was delicious! The prices are on higher side but if you don’t mind to spend little bit more, go try...More

Fish is always fresh, which is the main thing you can ask for at a Japanese restaurant. Traditional, authentic. Japanese-owned, great service. Ask for dishes that are not in the menu. If you get drunk the valet drives you in your car to your home...More

We couldn't of had a worse night. Terrible service from staff who clearly didn't want to be there, warm beer and overpriced mediocre food. Japanese is our favourite food but if it exists in Rio we can't find it. 0 stars

The place is a hole in the ground. It is expensive as a sushi restaurant in the states but far from being good as them. The sushi was the same as a normal "all you can eat". We paid 45$ each and just got some...More

The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional
and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood
is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and
traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of
everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs,
chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and
