Paulo Morais, o chef português que há mais anos trabalha a cozinha japonesa, tem um novo restaurante em Belém mais virado para os oceanos, mas sempre com a Ásia em mente. Ao contrário do Kanazawa, onde mantém mantém uma cozinha kaiseki (o menu de degustação equivalente à alta-cozinha ocidental) e uns exclusivos oito lugares ao balcão, nesta nova aventura em Belém mostra outro registo, sempre com o foco no peixe e no mar, mas mais ocidental e descontraído. Há 90 lugares (um número que vai subir para cerca de 120 quando o espaço ganhar uma esplanada) e três áreas de refeição, com uma forte componente de showcooking.

Um dos melhores restaurantes Asiáticos de Lisboa, a maestria de como o chef Paulo Morais trabalha os igredientes é espetacular.
A montra de peixe nos dá água a boca e a variedade da carta me faz querer voltar para experimentar outros pratos!
O atendimento foi exemplar, funcionários simpáticos e prestáveis.
In few words: don’t go there, nor for the decoration/atmosphere (cheap and cold), nor the food quality and menu (random). The execution is just wrong compares to the high standard they try to accomplish. Definitely not for couples dinner. I seriously dont get how anyone could rate a 5* review.
Food: nothing special with wrong execution and overrated compared to the excellent choices you can have in lisbon (Go Juu or Yakuza) in terms of freshness of the fish and menu possibility. As an example, Tempura are served with basic soya sauce instead of the traditional tempura sauce. The tempura was super thick and tasted like a fish nuggets. All sashimi (except the tuna toro) where just random taste. The menu is just weird, including Portuguese matured beef in a Japanese restaurant ?! Either you serve wagyu beef or you stick to fish and seafood.
It starts by having an entrance quioske/lounge with no one to welcome you. You have to go to the restaurant and beg to finally have someone to come and then escort you to the table. Then you have cheap paper set and fork and knife while its a japanese restaurant ! I am tech savvy, but The tablet self ordering system is a joke: no photos while the names dont mean anything, you need to click on every single dish to get a small description. Its not even connected to the kitchen, so the waister needs to put it on a different system after ! (Waiste of time and risk of human errors). No single Douro wine by glass and the only alentejo one was “waiting for a delivery soon”. In the end the waiter was kind enough to open a bottle which is usually not by glass.
they try their best but simply no training and coordination. We had like 4 different persons serving us during the dinner. The first dish i finished remained empty on the table until the end. The only dish of my girlfriend arrived 1h30 later (sashimi toro....), they came with a wrong dish, asking me several times to repeat the order (next time, take a paper and a pen)
everyone is different but for me its usually 50% of the experience. Here everything is simply cheap and not consistent. Only Half of the tables with table clothes (why ?!) while the quality of the table is cheap and should be covered, chairs in cheap PVC leather, flooring is the cheapest you can find on the market with random colored stones. Full bright light, random techno, then house, then pop musics. There is no cosyness nor charm in this place. Only the small blue room at the end for long tables seems to be nice.
