The offer for Japanese restaurants in Lisbon has seen a major growth over the last years. Not everything that opened, however, has the quality we would wish for or the magical hands that can treat it as it deserves. The best Japanese restaurants in town are few, but they make a fine set. Here it is.
It's been a few years since Olivier decided to start an adventure with sushi. His first venue was Yakuza in Tivoli Forum, then in a shared space with Olivier Avenida and now in a beautiful location in Príncipe Real. Yakuza First Floor has several rooms to choose from, a huge counter for those who love to see the sushimen in action and a signature menu where sushi fusions and specialities play the main role. We have to highlight the gunkans - which are very creative, the toro sashimi, the robata dishes (grilled at the table) and even some not so Japanese ones - but amazingly prepared - fish tacos. At lunch the menu costs €15.
