This japanese restaurant never get's out of fashion, it is allways elegant and good never disapoints: do not skipe dessert! The ice cream tempura that they offer is incredible!

If you want bona fide Japanese-Japanese food, this is the best place I know in Lima. Expensive and not especially innovative, but definitely fits the bill if that is truly what you are seeking. But then, why come to Lima for that? A city which one listing gives as having 2 of the top 20 restaurants in the whole world? (And when I last looked TripAdvisor's top pick was actually yet another.. which I would agree is definitely a starter).
If you feel somewhat Japanese-inclined, definitely try a Nikkai place - Maido etc.
Para Limeño/ Peruano, talvez. Para turista no hay mucho interés.
Brasileiro: acho que provavelmente pode encontrar mesmo ou bem melhor em Sāo Paulo. Aqui, vōce deve comer

Good sushi, fresh, english spoken , nice place , safe.

Have tried better sushi for sure, for way less money than here.

It is , from my point of view and the city where is located, very expensive. This is not Tokyo o Seattle. However, you cant fail at Matsuei. I

Peru is known for its fresh and delicious fishery, due to the colision of 2 currents near Lima. Matsuei is a small and quiet restaurant that you go to eat one of the best japanese food.It may not be the most romantic place but the taste compensates for that. Try the asevichado - A maki dipped in sort of leche de tigre- the acidic lime sauce they use for ceviche.Not cheap but worth the effort.
