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!

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

I went with my girlfriend and we shared the Gyosa & Tempura Mixed. Both were only OK. The Gyosa was alright but the Tempura doughy and not light. It was a nice change from steak but when one eats Japanese food regularly, it was a...More
