Always a good place to go. Not unique, but you wont go wrong. Japanese / peruvian mix very well blended. Excelent bar, not only on this branch, but also in Mexico City's. If crowded, a good choice is to fin a spot on the bar upstairs.

The Ceviche here was amazing. So fresh the fish was melt in the mouth. Accompanied by the best Pisco Sour in Buenos Aires. The portions are large. Sushi is good and has some interesting twists. Definitely beats most other Peruvian/Japanese places we tried.

We had a wonderful meal here thanks to the help and advice of one of the English speaking waiters. He reccommended how much we should order, three 'tiradito', sole, octopus and salmon which were similar to ceviche and delicious. Some amazing rolls (10) followed by two choices from the tapas menu, the shrimp in passion fruit and peanut sauce is amazing.

Washed down with a bottle of Torrontes.

The restaurant was full at 9pm on Sunday evening, you should definitely make aresrvation. Service was great and the food was very very good.

It is not a cheap restaurant but it was definitely worth it.

Highly reccommend.

I reviewed this place over one year ago and still think the Romans got it right. In Buenos Aires, dont have Asian cuisine in general, and Japanese cuisine in particular as your first or second round draft pick.

While Osaka continues to be very successful, and the place has developed a social Hype of sorts.... if we are talking about the food and the value then this place needs a lot of work. Seasonings are unbalanced, overloaded with sugars and Soy Sauce (or both), cream cheese is used in excess.... red tuna (if available) is not up to standards..... so if you come, please manage your expectations.

Service...... well, its a crapshoot.... but be prepared as some of the servers think they are too good to wait tables, or are too busy chatting with other wait staff.

The only real reason to eat here is if you have to make a social statement.... this place is popular with local sports/showbiz celebrities and the fashion model scene... so this may be something to consider if that matters to you.

There are no proper sushi chefs in Argentina. The ones here are okay. The sushi is fine. But is it worth the price? Not at all. People go here because it's trendy and the place looks impressive. And if you have a lot of money, then everything is cool. I've been here 3 times, for a birthday party, on a date, and with a friend's parents. The only thing mind-blowing about the sushi here is the price.
