Great combination for those who want to eat meat and fish until you faint. Free Argentine barbecue buffet and freshly cooked fish and sushi done right on the spot. Buffet with side dishes of all kinds. Great location, in Via Laietana 2 just opposite from the Plaza Urquinaona, and great prices considering the amount of food.

we didn't understand why it is labeled as Japanese/argentina, tbh that "fusion" label had put us off immediately. thank god we did try it. the buffet is great, lots of seafood nicely done and an average sashimi selection. the star is the raw food section. you choose what and how much raw food you want and the chef cook it...

Great rich buffet with huge amount of things to eat! And great sushi! Not expensive, so definitely worth of the money!

We were visited this place as the ptrvious reviews tated it as 4.5 stars, but it was a huge disappointment. The sushi is very "average" like in cheap restaurants, the seafood prepared "on-the-plancha" is oversalted and not tasty at all. My wife tried the Argentinian beef which was a disappointment as well.

Friendly and tastey Japanese-Argntinian buffet. The restaurant offers a rich buffet and also cooks from raw on demand. Had a good lunch there and recommend it.

We quite liked the look of this restaurant from the outside, advertising Japanese / Argentinian food. Once inside, it is clear that this just a buffet with a selection of Sushi, salads, seafood and fish, Chinese dishes, Spanish ham and bits and pieces... and a man at a hot plate who will cook what you have selected from the "raw...

It's a strange mix of japanese and argentinian food. Nobody seemed to eat the Japanese food, which was great for me! All in all very cheap, and decent.

The selection of buffet is quite good, the quality is another thing. The atmosphere is what you'd expect from a typical cheap Chinese restaurant. They try to present themselves as a Japanese/Argentine restaurant but in reality that is just a marketing trick.
