It was a very nice sorprise to enter such a nice house and have a great dinner with my family in a very relaxed atmosphere. The second time it was with my husband, and I can say it is the perfect place... More

I just loved the place when i came in. It's not only about food, but atmosphere as well. Everything is so well thought and made! The food is not just tasty, it's sophisticatedly exquisite and excellentely served, the interior decorations make the place very cosy (!always fresh flowers!!) and waiters are super courteous. Extremely harmonic place! I recommend.

We booked a table for Noche Buena . The four course menu was worth the taxi ride! One of the best dinners in our four week city trip in BA. The food was tasteful, creative and good value for money. Husband Franco was a great host. Staff very friendly and delicated.

This is the best southeast asian restaurant in Buenos Aires! The menu changes every week so you have to check their website to see what you are going to eat. Make a reservation! Hint: meet the owner! She is very nice and is willing to explain you the dish!

The best food that I have had during my 3 weeks in Argentina. Cocina Sunae was a great way to end my trip. Delicious fresh food with a quiet ambiance. The service was superb and Chef Sunae took time to meet and greet with every single person who entered her restaurant. I highly recommend that you seek out this hidden... More

This is, by far, the best restaurant in Buenos Aires. I am a foodie by nature. I have worked across the US and love to travel internationally, and therefore, I often find I am looking for the best restaurants in each place I visit during my travels. My travels through Argentina have been excellent with scenery and culture, but food....... More

During our 10 day stay in Buenos Aires we went out for dinner every night. Cocina Sunae was one of the nicest experiences in the city. Sunae is a great chef. We enjoyed the menu for the evening with incredibly fresh ingredients, bright flavors and all delicately balanced. We had the best fresh, plump shrimps ever! Franco, Sunae's husband -... More

Easily one of the best meals I've ever had. If there's one restaurant you need to frequent while you're in Buenos Aires, make it Cocina Sunae. I was fortunate they allowed me to visit by myself (frequently travel overseas solo); they normally require at least two for a reservation, and it seemed like a wonderful place for couples, friends, older...

If you like Asian food and want something different go to this restaurant. The food is great. The restaurant is nice. Service is perfect too. We had nice spring rolls, some salad, a curry with shrimps and a nice dessert. You are asked if you like your food spicy or not. So food is good for everyone. The owner also... More
