Ideal for sharing

This is a good Armenian / middle eastern restaurant that offers typical home style cooking and good size portions. It is great for sharing so that you get to try various dishes. Best go with a group

Sarkis is a different option in the city. Middle Eastern food . The setting is quite simple, the tables are very close to each other, and generally chaotic in their organization. Busy, noisy, and very often sounds from the speakers a loud musical version of Happy Birthday. The best: the food, specifically the appetizers and the lamb with yogurt sauce.

This is one of the best places you can go for dinner in Buenos Aires. If you are tired of steaks and want to try something else, this is your place. The only problem are the queue. You should really make a reservation by phone first otherwise you will be waiting at least 1 hour outside.

We went to have dinner there. In general, we try to go veryyyyyyy early because there is always a big line. The restaurant opens at 8 pm at night but the wait is worth it. The restaurant is simple but the food is out of this world! I cannot recommend something in particular because everything is great and in a... More

I've been here multiple times over the years. It's the absolute best! Expect a line of you go at the wrong time but totally worth it.

Expect a line and a wait for the best authentic Armenian food you will find in Bs As. The prices are very reasonable and best to by half portions so that you can enjoy more. No worries, everything is great from the hummus to the desserts. There is a covered area outside only for people to wait as the line... More

As I am from Turkey, I am very familiar with Middleeastern food and mezes, because we have a lot of dishes in common. Without any reservation I can say that the food in this restaurant is amazing! The falafel was the best I have ever eaten. Tabule is very nice, too. For 2 people we ordered tabule, taditional hummus (pure... More

A crowd was lined up to get in before the restaurant even opened. We had attentive service and delicious food faster than we had a right to expect. We ordered a variety of food, most of which were perfect for the vegetarian in our party. However the chick brochette was perfect for me. Overall, I would highly recommend this wonderful... More

I go there at least 3 times a year (I live in Buenos Aires) and enjoy it every time! We allways order around 4 dishes of the cold part of the menu, like tabuleh, raw keppe, olives, and some others: all delicious. Very good quality-price relation. The restaurant opens at 8 pm but if you do not want to wait... More

We needed to wait over 30minutes to get a table (22:00). It was worth it, we had: humus and ensalate as a starter and kofta with the brilliant waiter-recommended mosaya. Absolutely great food:)
