We chanced upon this Vegan restaurant while on vacation in Buenos Aires. The food was outstanding. Neither I nor my husband are vegans or vegetarians but that didn't affect our enjoyment of the experience. We dined in a tiny courtyard of a private house, met...More

I'd never tasted vegan food before I went to Kensho with my sister who is vegan. It was such a surprise how much they can create just using vegan materials, I was amazed! We enjoyed a lovely three course meal, the service was great as...More

Having read the reviews on here we were expecting good things. However, the food was uninspiring. Somehow, despite being vegan, the 'gnocci' managed to be fatty and too rich. The tabbouleh was just a cold bowl of quinoa with little bits of raw cabbage, apple...More

Dined at Kensho last evening as recommended by my daughter. Fine, unique and delicious vegan dishes. We ordered a risotto, a pasta (in phyllo) and a hamburger (of course, not meat). Everything was fantastic. I bought two jars of vegan preserves....Yum

The more I try vegetarian options, the more I love it. Going to Kensho was a great food experience: tasting, healthy and vegetarian. I really recommend going there for the food. The downsides were: the place itself needs to be refurbished and service is poor.

The food ranged from good to absolutely delicious. It was a very pleasant surprise (and change of pace) to find such a good vegan restaurant in BA!

Came here without knowing that it was a Vegan restaurant! Why come all the way to Argentina to eat vegan when you should be eating steaks?! But after the licuardo (shake), which was very yummy, I started to feel better about this restaurant. The mushroom...More
