Although Japanese and Brazilian cuisine might seem like an odd combination, it is actually more common than you’d think, as São Paulo is home to the largest Japanese population outside of Japan.

Sushinho is located in a refurbished, listed building, and features a ground floor restaurant complete with a 10ft sushi bar, and a lower ground floor cocktail bar, all designed by stylish interior designer Macaulay Sinclair.
