I came across a Japanese restaurant that has the best rating across all platforms. I had to try it.
888 people rated this restaurant 4.9 out of 5. Wow!
Despite the location being a bit far away from the touristic downtown area of Lisbon, this restaurant is one of the most highly rated Japanese eateries in town.
The restaurant is cozy, comfortable and stylish.
The dining space is open and well organized. There are big screens showing live-feed of how the chefs prepare the food, which is fun to watch. During lunch time the restaurant is full of professionals who work nearby.
The lunch menu is very popular.
Go Juu offers various lunch menus (€14,50-€23,00) with great presentation and taste. I tried sashimi lunch menu and I am happy with the it. However in terms of value for the money, I do not think it is the most valuable option.
How about other Japanese restaurants...?
To be very honest, I might not go to this restaurant again...simply because there are so many brilliant Japanese restaurants in Lisbon! Within 500 meters walking distance, there are two other options: Nomada, and AronSushi. For lunch, my go-to will be Yakuza First Floor (update: it is permanently closed due to the pandemic!) where you have a beautiful outdoor garden and pay a similar price. If you aim for something fancier, Kanazawa has a genius omakase style tasting menu, and Silk Club has a breath-taking view. On the mid-price range, there are also Miss Jappa (in Principe Real), Tasca Kome (near the main cathedral), and Avenida Sushi Cafe (near Avenida da Liberdade). Etc...
Stay hungry Lisbon! See you next dinner.
Lunch menu is okay: Go Juu.
