Don't expect any delicacy or blend of any sophisticated nature. Poor Mexican food oily and raw and Japanese a bit better but nothing to be crazy about

I was surprised to hear about a restaurant with both Japanese and Mexican food, and only agreed to go because my friend assured me it was good. I don't regret it at all! Their burrito is great, and japanese menu is also awesome. I like restaurants that serve real sashimi, not scrap tail cuts. You should also try their shrimp... More

This is a very good retaurant for the lovers of mexican and/or japanese food. With a warmfull atmosphere you can choose from an open menu (rodízio) and eat "all you can". It's a small place with local people, in the heart of Botafogo.

Let's start with the good. The service is quite good for Rio standards. If you live in Rio then you know what I mean. My wife and and I had the Rodizio (all you can eat). The Mexico food was far cry Mexico cuisine. Mozzarella cheese on nachos to start. Had a sausage and cheese burrito it was a Sadia... More

Maybe the Mexican food on the menu is better, but the Japanese food we tried was a joke! The sushi rice was soggy and way too sweet, the fish was not fresh and the rolls were falling apart. Don't go there!
