It is worth waiting over an hour to try this Armenian restaurant. Everything here is nicely prepared and tastes delicious. But don't go expecting any fancy place. Although recently rebuilt, it is still a neighbourhood restaurant. Be aware to have cash on you, Credit and debit cards are not accepted. Be prepared to wait quite a while in line.

I came here for lunch Saturday morning right when it opened with my SO; there were only a few other tables occupied. After a few minutes browsing the spanish menu, we were offered an English menu by an English speaking server, which was a pleasant surprise. They have a lot of standard fare you'll find in North American Meditteranean /... More

Great reviews pointed me to walk for lunch from the outlets. Almost didn't want to arrive since the area didn't look nice. From across the street, the worn out red canopy was giving me an idea of the kind of place and as i could see the chairs over the table in one section i decided to hop on a... More

This restaurant serves well prepared, authentic tasting middle eastern dishes. The hummus, baba ganoush and tabouleh are excelent, just the right amount of seasonings and consistency to give it that taste that middle eastern food fans love. The portions are a good size, enough for sharing, lots of choices on the menu, perfectly cooked rice, great desserts with lots of... More

No reservations. The wait is worth it. Go with an appetite and don't be stingy when ordering. Try it all. Order the big jar of fruit punchy clerito and speak loudly. This joint is ideal for the weekends.

Early Birds (7:30/8:00 PM) or very late (after 11:00 PM) for a short wait. After visiting this place for over 10 years, the food has the same exact taste. This is not common in restaurants, not even in the Middle Eastern Countries. If you desire ethnic food and a taste of arab dishes, this is the place!! Great service, waiters... More

I definitively love the food at Sarkis!!!! You might have some issues with some of the old waiters but i guess that doesn't stop me from coming! The younger waiters are awesome, food is served fast ans I absolutely recommend the stuffed tripe, grilled lamb and mousaka!

If you wanna taste delicious armenian/arabian food for a ridicoulous price, the search is over: Sarkis, no longer a secret, gives you great food, really great food for an incredible price. Arrive early or book one week in advanced. Top quality products, all delicious dishes...not to miss if you like ethnic food.

Long wait so get ready, and they don't take reservations. But once instead, fabulous service (the best I have encountered in Buenos Aires) and PHENOMENAL FOOD. Everything tastes exactly as it should -- truly authentic middle eastern / balkan food. AND SO INEXPENSIVE!!!

One of the best restaurants in town. Great food, good service and at a very reasonable price. I recommend to order several options and share to try as many as possible. Generous portions
