I will write my review in English so there will be no misunderstanding. We arrived there at 15 to 8 pm and the restaurant was still closed. There was a bloke at the door smoking a cigarette, ee sat down at a table right next to him, it was freaking cold. All the windows were opened and we couls see... More

This is a reversion of Asian food, the place is well decorated in a chic vibe tone and offers quite a nice service though it is mostly full of people and its a little bit uncomfortable. The food is ok, I would expect something more because of the high price.

The restaurant is cosy and special. The service is ok but not too friendly. The food is nothing special and much too pricy!! We ordered spicy dishes but they weren't at all.

Had seen several reviews mentioning higher prices here but wanted a different experience away from Parrilas or Italian! The food was OK but nothing exceptional, service could have been a lot better (a smile wouldn't have gone amiss) overall average but fine dining prices.

The deco was fun n poppy. Nice lounge area. Calamari was different 8/10. Not spicy in any of their plates. Nice music and good service. Big drink list but not a craft cocktail list.... Its a cool vibe....

This place serves great cocktails and very tasty food. On the basis of this visit I'd also say the service was good (Argentines don't expect it to be quite so fast). The reviews saying the food is not spicy enough are confusing: in several weeks travelling Vietnam from Hanoi to HCMC and the islands I didn't try a single dish... More

We did a one hour hit and run job on Green Bamboo. We had the Vietnamese Limonada which was refreshing and zesty. We only went for starters. The shrimp dumplings in shrimp curry tasted fantastic The shrimp and sweet potato pancakes with leaves and chilli sauce was also so great The squid was very well cooked ... But the choices... More

Staying in Palermo

Neighborhood Profile
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
