Good food, reasonable prices, good service. This place was packed and we had a long wait, but enjoyed the experience. Atmosphere is okay, but for ethnic food it was appropriate.

For only 200 pesos we ate 3 dishes and shared a bottle of delicious wine. Make sure you get there before opening time to line up - this place is busy with both tourists and locals.

Looking for unique middle eastern flavours?? Go to Sarkis! Its crowded and noise, it doesn´t accept credit cards and you´ll probably have to wait about half an hour to get a table, still... it´s one of the best places to eat in Buenos Aires

I've eaten here 3 times now over 2 years so think I can provide a balanced viewpoint. First time it was great given the excitement that you are eating in an Armenian restaurant in Argentina, you put any concerns to the side. Second time you realize the dishes are kind of off and the service is bad. Third time there... More

I loved this place so much that I've been there twice during my stay in buenos aires. Also, the menu is so long that you can have an almost illimited choice everytime you go there. It's cheap, it's good and the service is quick. The wait can be long sometimes, but actually I had to wait "only" 20 minutes on... More

I called 2 Tuesdays in a row to reserve for the following Saturday night at 21:00. Both times I was told: All booked. Come at 20:00, wait 1 1/2 to 2 hours, there may be a table. A ridiculous answer - either they are all booked or not. I will not stand in line for 2 hours "just in case".... More

We had been recommended this restaurant and had read the reviews on tripadvisor but sadly were most disappointed. The meat was so well done it was inedible. The grilled vegetables were soggy and cold. Give it a miss, there are far better in BA
