Best Sushi in Coral Gables! It's my favorite and I was sad to find out they will be closing this location. Tacqitos are the best with the most amazing spicy sauce. Viva Samba Roll was so fresh we ordered a 2nd. Service is exceptional and the manager always on hand. I will really miss this restaurant. Head over quick and enjoy.

The food was light but delicious, it was a very quiet Monday night, the server was excellent: friendly and very knowledgeable. Sad this location will be closing soon but I look forward to visiting other locations.

Wish they still had their former full menu. Saw a couple walk out, as the menu did not have the items they came for

Booked a reservation on open table for Sunday night. When I showed up at the restaurant, my date and I found out the place was closed every Sunday. It makes no sense to use this website if they don't even advertise the right opening times and days. I am going to stick with calling the restaurant directly next time. Thanks!

I booked a reservation for a Sunday night and I got no forewarning that the restaurant is closed on Sundays. I got a confirmation email with my reservation, yet when I arrived there was no one there.

Unbeknownst to us, the restaurant is in the 'wind down' phase at this location, since they are moving at the end of the month, so many aspects which would be customary (more robust specials, coffee!!, # of serving staff) were missing, so the evening was not as good as it should have been.

The people were very pleasant, the food was highly flavorful, and while it took way too long - the overall ambiance and company minimized the negative effect. Had previously dined at one on Lincoln Road, so not prepared to indict nor impugn the restaurant, and would give it another chance at the new locale.

Close to the end? More staff than customers despite reduced number of staff and reduced menu options since my last visit. Food was good and staff very attentive (perhaps overly so) but no atmosphere and perhaps no future.

About to close location, so menu is 1/3 the size it used to be. No one asked if we wanted another drink though we were only one of 3 tables. I won't go to new location after this experience.

They have eliminated about half the menu and the choices are very limited. Wine list is almost non existent... They're out of 80% of the wines.

It was a rather disappointing dining experience as most of the things we wanted to order they didn't have.

My boyfriend loves asian food and we'd already tried everything in FTL so I found this unusual place that fused brazilian and asian flavors into so many items. Everything was delicious that I had and my bf loved it as well. Since it was his birthday, the staff came out with a treat for him. They made us feel very welcome and special!
