Staff 10/10
Food 10/10
Location 10/10

Definitely the most memorable sushi experience we've had. We're both Vegan and had the 25euro menu. We were stuffed leaving!

100% must visit if in Funchal.

Pros: several courses of delicious vegan goodness

Dinner set menu - Edit

Staff is helpful and friendly. The little restaurant deco is atmospheric with candles and lightings. I like the fusion Japanese/Portuguese sushi as the locals prefer, fruity variations. Else according to the staff, you can also ask for traditional Jap style of sushi.

Pros: Good vegetarian options , Interesting fusion of Jap and Portuguese

Cons: Tight seating area

Don't go here for lunch - Edit

My partner and I ate here for lunch one day. After reading the reviews we had been looking forward to eating here. However, when we got there we were dismayed to see there were only 2 vegetarian/vegan options available at lunch time. Don't be dismayed though! What we ate was delicious, and we saw upon exiting a pretty extensive evening menu. Our advice - if you like ramen this place is excellent for lunch. But if you want more choice go for an evening meal

The best vegan sushi I have ever had! - Edit

Visiting Portugal is tough for a vegan! I was so happy to have found this place. The owner Antouguia was so incredibly kind and helpful with making menu decisions. They have the best vegan sushi I have ever had! And even vegan miso soup and Goya! Amazing. Can't wait to come back. The atmosphere is very nice inside as well.

Pros: Vegan sushi, Atmosphere, Options

Cons: Not too many tables, Not fast food, Busy

best vegan sushi ever! - Edit

We made a reservation for the evening and checked they could accommodate x2 vegans. Instead of feeling like pain in the *sses we were treated to a whole vegan set menu - like a multi course tasting menu - from gyoza to tempura, maki and more. So much care, attention and skill had gone into preparing it I could have hugged the chef at the end. It isn't super cheap but is 100% worth it - its the best vegan sushi we've had and an amazing find on an island that isn't really that vegan friendly! Wish we were staying another day so we could go back.

Best vegan sushi we ever had!!! - Edit

We are a couple from Germany who tried this fabulous restaurant in Funchal. I would love to give 5 stars, but the app allows max 4 stars for non-vegetarian restaurants.
The food was really amazing!!!!! It was created with taste, it tasted amazing, the owner and the staff are really really nice! We really enjoyed it, it was our best vegan sushi experience.

We both took the vegan menu, which consisted of several plates, each served after one another - everytime a great surprise.

You should make a reservation. We definitely recommend this place and give 5 STARS :)

Pros: best vegan sushi , nice atmosphere, really cool and friendly owner and staff

leckeres und aussergewoehnliches sushi - Edit

Man kann das Restaurant leicht verpassen, da es sich im obergeschoss befindet. Der Eingang ist zwischen zwei anderen Bars. Das Essen war klasse und ganz anders, als man das sonst kennt. Sehr fruchtig, wunderschön angerichtet und vielseitig. Man sollte immer reservieren und dann am besten von vornherein sagen, dass man dann vegan bestellt. Dann zaubert der koch einem auch gerne mehr, als auf der karte steht. Wir haben zu zweit für je eine sushiplatte, suppe und vorspeise inklusive, je ein getränk und einen kleinen nachtisch(leckeres obst), zusammen 42€ bezahlt. Die betreiber sind alle sehr herzlich

Pros: fresh, extra-ordenary, beautiful erranged

Gastronomical highlight of Madeira - Edit

A fabulous little non-veg but veg-friendly sushi bar in a funky upstairs room on the main drag in Funchal. The owner was super welcoming and they anticipated needs once we told them we were a vegetarian and a vegan. It was late in the lunch slot and so we had to wait a while for the excellent chefs to prepare the veggie menu freshly (all the offerings come as menus of a certain number of pieces). It was well worth the wait - exquisite presentation and attention to detail. Delicious flavours with lots of subtlety and a great fusion of local ingredients into the creative dishes. The owner told us they could do a more varied and more vegan offering given more time and that it would also be quicker. We used this as a quick stop for a late lunch - and got a wonderful surprise at how great it was. Given another chance would definitely call ahead and book for dinner and a blow out!

Pros: delicious, unusual, healthy

Cons: best to call ahead for full veggie readiness
