The restaurant offers good food, large portions for a low/ budget price. I don't quite understand why there is a queue of over an hour as the food isn't that super special. Its good, but not worth the queue. One tip: Try to order everything in medium portions or share with lots of people. Portions are huge! And there is... More

Went there with friends and spent a great time. Great food and great value (cash only!!!) Tables are a bit clamped next to each other, but worth going with friends.

We are a family of 5, we ate a very hearty lunch at this Middle-Eastern restaurant for about 50 US$. We had two plates of appetizers, three main dishes to share, and drinks. The food was decent, tasty, but not the best Middle Eastern food I've had in South America. We all loved the kibe and kafta. We thought the... More

Being one of the first Oriental Restos in Buenos Aries, Sarkis has a little of everything, from greek to Turkish food, from arab to armenian. I have an armenian family background, so I loved to have dinner there a couple of times.

We ordered tabouli, labne, kibbi and falafel along with the empanada Arabic, the tabouli, labne and kibbi are well below the Lebanese standard if you are looking for authentic Lebanese food. The falefel was inedible, After staters we had kafta, carne and pollo skewers, all were genourous servings. The kafta was excellent the other two where nice but a little... More

I'll begin with this: if there is a wait (which there will be, so if you need to get seated and served and out of there quickly, I wouldn't suggest going) they have no problem with you ordering a bottle of wine or a beer and standing outside, waiting for your table while simultaneously beginning the dining festivities. My kind... More

Our local tour guide recommended this restaurant but warned us to go early as the wait time can be crazy. We arrived just after 8pm (early by Argentinian standards!) but there was already a wait-list. Luckily, it's a big restaurant and they were just staggering the flow of people so we only had to wait about 15 mins for a... More

I went with a group of 6 , we had to wait for one hour and a half to get a table, every night is packed so I recommend reservation if possible. Once with a table, the experience is awesome, take the "fierrito" all the 3 or 4 varieties of that "fierrito" are awesome. We took the waiter recommendation about... More

I thought that this was going to be a truly special experience, but if you live in a city that has more than a few Middle-Eastern restaurants, then there is no need to go here if you're visiting Buenos Aires for less than a couple weeks. We had a few different cold appetizers such as hummus, tabouli, and roasted red... More
