It was probably the best meal I have ever had in BA. Being a fan of asian food, I can't believe I have only now discovered this nice little restaurant. We shared four dishes between three and each one was unbelievably flavored.

A good (but not amazing) Asian restaurant. It is a good option for vegetarians -not many places to get tofu in BA. Having said that my husband thought tofu could have been crisper and sauce a bit too sweet. My prawn glass noodle with ginger dish was good and freshly cooked.Tasty but could have been spicier for my taste. Key... More

Small, refined menu. Everything we tried was wonderfully prepared. Classic Asian foods through the Chefs eyes. The ambiance is unpretentious, yet there has been payed a lot of attention to the interior and detail. Service was relaxed and first tier. Would go back any time.

Overpriced pan-Asian food to fool Argie. Pad thai dressed up as something exotic in this part of the world, when much higher quality served street side in SEA. Step up your game on the food front or redefine the crowd you want to serve with your current menu.

My biggest challenge when traveling alone is convincing restaurants that my reservation for one is legit. Just because I'm on my own doesn't mean I shouldn't enjoy good cuisine, right? And sure enough, that was the case here. After an initial flub and a switch from a table to the bar, things started to look up. It turns out the... More

We didn't have a reservation but were seated at the bar for food. Fast service and great portion sizes at a resonance price for the area. Fantastic spices which is hard to find in BA, so keep this place as a great dining option!!

After almost 3 weeks in Argentina, we were looking for something different than Parilla and that Asian restaurant was the perfect choice! The food was absolutely amazing, very tasty, perfectly cooked and the waiters were all really friendly. You can watch the kitchen crew prepare all the dishes which makes it quite special. We ordered two small dishes as a... More

Dinner was excelent. There are several "small dishes"/starters to chose from and instead of a main dish you can have several of them, asian style. The ones I had were very different one from the other and both very tasty and interesting. Nice wine list and do not miss the desert. You can make an on line reservation in their... More

A very nice taste of Asia in Buenos Aires; the detailed decoration is only match to the beautiful way all the dishes are presented. The waitress are very knowledgeable about the different dishes, their ingredients and the level of spiciness. The "spicy" level is Asian way, not the Argentinian way where there is not really much of spicy food. Nice... More

This was just the break from steak we needed! The food here is really delicious - we have the pork buns (some of the best I have ever had), spicy shrimp salad and then I got the fish (to die for) and my mom the glass noodles (yum!). The service was great - they were very welcoming - and overall... More

Neighborhood Profile
Palermo
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.
