It was a rainy Saturday in October, but Temakinho promised a warm welcome with their bottomless caipirinhas and sunny Brazilian vibes. Their bottomless brunch delivered a fusion of delicious Japanese Brazilian food, as well as endless jugs of Brazil’s most famous cocktail.
Coming in at £40pp for 2 hours of bottomless cocktails and food, the price is incredibly reasonable considering the quality of the food and the location of the restaurant. Located in Soho, Temakinho stands out against other restaurants in the area.
There is also the option of upgrading to bottomless champagne for £70pp.
During our visit, we were given bottomless caipirinhas for the entirety of the brunch. Served in refillable jugs, these cocktails were sweet and delicious. Be careful, though – these cocktails are stronger than they taste!
The entire menu was something to shout about here; everything was freshly prepared and presented beautifully. My favourite moment in this meal was biting into the Gostoso mini temaki – filled with salmon and drizzled in spicy mayo and teriyaki, I wished it would last forever.
Be aware that this brunch contains a high amount of raw fish – if you do not like this, then this brunch is not for you.

In addition to our food, we were also delighted to be entertained by some Brazilian festival dancers between courses. They had incredible energy, and even invited some diners to join them.
Temakinho brought a fantastic brunch experience to the table – their shining stars being their Japanese focused courses. If you’re in London and want to treat yourself to a high-quality brunch, this is something you should not miss out on.
