If ever in Sao Paulo and fan of japanese food you can't miss this incredible experience at Jun's sushibar. A piece by piece selection of the best and freshest fishes in the market in a great atmosphere. The moment you try that hot rice with...the cold sliced fish, with the right amount of soy sauce and wasabi (spice seasoning) picked by the Chef. A great sake cart also at your disposal, as well beers and wines. Along with the chef experience you also have a special starter and a desert. Coffee or tea in the end is optional, but usually you'd prefer to leave with the taste of the food. You can't go wrong. Amazing!More

By far the best nigiri sushi I have ever tasted! A pris fix menu with a tuna tartar for starters, sixteen different kinds of sushi, two hot dishes and a desert. Worth every one of the many reais you'll pay for it. The sake beer...is interesting, but overrated and, consequently overpriced. But Jun Sakamoto's restaurant is definitely worth coming back!More

I love Jun. To me, it's the best sushi-ya in São Paulo mainly because Jun is a very interesting guy and part of the experience is to have the opportunity to chat with him. Sushis are exquisite and the hot dishes are awesome.

Simply put, the best Sushi in Brazil. Chef Jun is a master of the craft and the quality of the ingredients rivals top Sushiyas of Tokyo and NY. Don't miss, and book one of the few counter seats with Chef Jun himself. It is really...a lavish experience!More
