“Not as good as next door by a long shot”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2011

We ate at Restuarant Chinatown last night and enjoyed it so much we decided to go back tonight... but it was full, packed to the rafters so we went here instead. Such a disappointment after last night.

The wonton and vegetable noodle soup was ok, but too thick and far too oily to really enjoy and the beef and black bean was not great.

Another good example of an ethnic place getting decent reviews on here and being disappointing in practice.

BA just doesn't seem to do much right other than parrilla which is suprising and disappointing for somewhere described as a vibrant, cosmopolitan city.

“A good representative of Chinese-Argentinean food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2009

Todos contentos was the first-mover in Buenos Aires' Chinatown, and therefore carries a bit of a price premium compared to its local competitors. However, the food is consistently good, and is a good representative of the type of Chinese food that became available in the city (as opposed to Chinese restaurants previously, which would only serve combinations of rice, noodles and bean sprouts with beef, chicken or veggies) after the wave of immigration that built up Chinatown. Other close-by options may be just as good and slightly cheaper, but Todos Contentos is definitely a safe bet if you're only going to eat in this neighborhood once.
