We had a selection of maki, niguiri and sashimi and it was all very fresh and delicious. The jasmine tea was also excellent.

We came here to get a lunch and got a lot more than it. First of all, the sushi and the nigiri were super fresh and tasty. The fish was great and felt real dominated in the rolls. The price was good too. For 260...More

Just what we wanted. We came here for lunch and there was no wait. Everything was FANTASTIC. We ordered 2 miso soups, 2 salmon sushi rolls and an arroz con salmon. The portions were large and now we have leftovers for dinner.

Authentic japanese restaurant with exceptional dishes situated in the Japanese cultural center in San Telmo. The service is very good and the dishes where abundant while reasonably priced. I cannot recommend it more!

The salmon nigiri and sashimi was fine. The canned-tuna roll, the roll-with-guacamole, the roll with cream cheese, and others of that ilk--none of which we had intended to order--was stomach-churningly bad.

The restaurant is in a cozy setting on the first floor in San Telmo. It's just a door on the street so it's easy to miss. Inside we ordered some gyoza, tempura, maki rolls and sashimi. Traditional sushi fare. Portion sizes were decent, and reasonably...More

After eating all this excellent Argentinian beef, we decided to try Japanese food even though we are half a world away from Japan. We order yakisoba and a California roll as a light dinner. The Yakisoba was excellent...tender, cooked, and seasoned to perfection. We had...More

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made
Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after
dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both
locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee
hours of the morning. During the day, the antique
