Excellent sushi - that's it

There is a variety of ratings on this place so I did not want what to expect. I advice anyone reading this that you should look at the dates of the reviews -- it seems this place is not consistent, or the sushi-man has changed... but certainly, this place was great a week ago when I was there.

My wife and I enjoy sushi on a regular basis in the US. This is our first visit to the country so to be fair we didn't know what to expect from a BA sushi restaurant, however we were sad to say we were disappointed. While the service was good and friendly, the sushi selection was very limited and salmon... More

Supposedly Peruvian-Japanese fusion cuisine. Amazingly bad. The fusion seems to have been with the rice, which is almost inedible. Sweet sushi? Ugghhhh.

We order about 40 pieces of sushi. It took them about 20 minutes to get our order and an other 40 minutes to bring the food. We think that the salmon was a bit frozen! and the rolls were very small.

Reasonably priced. We were early diners and naturally received excellent service. Our server was extremely proud to speak proper English with us and seemed to enjoy serving us. We shared the "love" for two persons so we enjoyed a variety of freshly prepared sushi. There is a cover charge at this restaurant (note: we've found more casual eateries do not... More

I'm asked to say here 'What went wrong'. What went wrong? Just my stupidity to give this (let's not name it 'restaurant' to avoid readers confusion) a chance. How can anybody -talking about the guy running this business- not notice that what you're promoting and serving as 'sushi' is surprisingly and by far the worst fresh fish with rice and... More

Neighborhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
