When we arrived we had a choice of paying a flat rate for all you can eat, or paying for the weight of your food. We decided to go for the weight, which was lucky as we didn't end up eating much. The food we had was nice, but there were very few choices available. We were slightly confused by... More

Located in upscale Rio Sul Mall, the sushi did not disappoint. They have a buffet which you pay by the weight. My friend and I ordered a lot of sushi dishes. With the Real so low vis a vis the Dollar the prices seemed reasonable. The staff is attentive. But, not everyone speaks english. Fortunately, my friend spoke Brazilian. The... More

When i arrived at the Rio Sul Shopping Center I decided to have lunch. The mall contains numerous restaurants. I chose this one because it offered a Chinese/Japanese buffet. Although, i love Japanese Sushi, I decided on Chinese. It was very good. First you enter the buffet table, take a plate and choose what ever you want and at the... More

Every time I come to Rio I visit Taiping. Delicious Chinese and Japanese food in a cozy place. The service is always good and they also have a good option of caipirinhas and sakes. Try the garlic shrimp on the stick.

went there for the all in buffet and were disappointed all over! What had to be cold wasn't and what had to be warm was cold. Expensive compared with other all-inn buffets you get in Rio! They also advertise in big that they had wifi and not even one person of the staff knew the wifi-code. All over disappointment!

I went there today and have to write about it. I read some stuff here about it and wanted to give it a shot. So we asked for the "all you can eat" way, which you pay 60 reais p/ person. You can eat all the fresh and tasty food on the buffet but the best part is that you... More

Good place to eat before heading bck to your apparent or hotel. Our waiter Alex was very fluent in English and very helpful. The food is very good although the desserts section wasn't as full as I thought it could have been at the time of our visit (after 8pm)

To be in a shopping mall this food was very good, we shared a big yakisoba and it was good for two person, no doubt! I would go here again when in Rio Sul after a long day there!
