Buenos Aires is so full of restaurants that it’s difficult to choose when you’re going out, but the diversity of the offer is for to be on par with the quantity… you want parilla, no problem, you want pastas, no problem… but if you want anything else, and especially anything exotic, big problem! There are only a few Asian restaurants... More

The place is nicely decorated with two different settings each at one end. We went there for dinner and expected something spectacular given the price of the food. First, there wasn't any welcoming appetizer (pan, cucumbers, etc..). Second, the drinks were VERY limited; two to be exact. Food was really good to be honest, but the quantity was disappointing. The... More

We decided to visit Sunae Asian cuisine after reading many great reviews. Nice location in trendy Palermo Hollywood gastronomic area. Friendly staff, always eager to help with dishes descriptions. Short but excellent wine list, with well selected, non habitual labels. We shared a fresh sea food salad and then order some spicy chicken and pork. Both were well done and... More

Fantastic dinner based on steam cooked bread sandwiches, greeen mango salad with seafood and pho. Everything was cooked to perfection, and service was also very nice.

As a vegetarian form NYC who loves spicy food living in Buenos Aires has been a bit of a challenge. Sunae is a great find. Sunae offers a vegetarian menu along with their regular menu. Food was flavorful and spicy (upon request) . Great service

I was a big fan of Sunae's closed door restaurant, and was thrilled to see her opening a regular restaurant finally. All the dishes we tried were delicious, full of bold fresh flavors and of generous portions. This will definitely become a regular on our restaurant rotation!

Chef Christine Sunae delivers excellent flavors, high quality food, and friendly, knowledgeable service at Sunae Asian Cantina. As Pinoys from California, we had high expectations, but Chef Sunae met each of them. Cravings for Asian food will be satisfied here. And we'll be back again before we leave BA.

A friend suggested we try this place, we both love Asian food. It's a welcoming and cool looking restaurant, you can see the cooking happening which I love. The waitress was lovely and the service very good. I had the pho and was so happy to finally find a good one in Buenos Aires. My friend had the curry which... More

After reading all the amazing reviews of this restaurant, I was very excited to have some Asian cuisine in Buenos Aires. The pork buns were good. Our entrees were very disappointing. Very spicy and too salty. I would not recommend this restaurant.

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.
