“One of our best experiences in Buenos Aires”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Osaka was one of the best experiences we had in Buenos Aires Palermo neighborhood. Of course it was our first time in BA so when walking into Osaka we had no idea what to order or what was good. Luckily we sat in front of Juan at the bar. Juan was great when we asked for recommendations, he took it from there and never steered us wrong. He had us try a little of a lot of different things which was a great idea. The food was amazing as was the atmosphere and the drinks. If your visiting BA you must go to Osaka and visit Juan. Try to get there before 8 or so as it fills up quickly.

“Simply Delicious”
Reviewed November 6, 2012 via mobile

Recommended by our lovely boutique hotel Palermo Place, Osaka was a joy. Fun, hip, and cool atmosphere coupled with terrific food made our experience.
In the land of beef, this was an oasis from the heavy beefy meals we had!

“Best we had in Buenos Aires”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

After a week of extremely bland Argentine food, we were jonesing for some flavor. Osaka did not disappoint. We walked in on a Thursday night without a reservation, and were seated immediately. Service was prompt and attentive. I noticed complaints about charging for the table, water, & extras, but, hey, that's what all the restaurants in BA do.
Our party of four split four appetizers and two entrees. I'm not a sushi fan, but I scarfed up two kinds. The seaweed salad was the best I've ever had. The bill came to less than $50 per person including tip. While we didn't have liquor or dessert, we thought the price was good for the quality of food.

“Overrated”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

It's the place to be seen. The food was ok but it was so so so expensive. It's even more expensive than a 3 hat restaurant in Sydney.

If you are craving sushi in BA, save it. You can buy a flight to somewhere with that money!

“Our favourite restaurant in Buenos Aires”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

This is a really great Japanese-Peruvian restaurant, and definitely our favourite in Buenos Aires.
We usually order rolls (maki furai above all the others) and they are always fresh and never disappointing. The service is good and the cocktails are excellent.
This is definitely the place to go if you want to try some good fusion food in Buenos Aires.
