Found this place by accident when atending a concert at Palau de la musica catalana. Skeptic because a place that mixes argentinian steak with sushi and wok buffé is something that at least I think about twice. But the place is of course great! Arrived...More

If there was a god of the restaurants, he'd punish Ichiban for its sins! The restaurant was dirty, I saw a cucaracha that was exiting from a frigo in the middle of the central hall. Downstairs I unfortunately saw the state of the kitchen: simply...More

I get it, it's a buffet restaurant, and a cheap one at that. I am not a picky eater and I was not expecting haute cuisine, but there was really nothing worth your money there and I would have been better off going to the...More

I am not picky about the food, and 9€ for free buffet menu is a very friendly price, but this place is an insult for every euro coin you leave there. Unfriendly staff, dirty plates, dirty bathroom, sticky chairs. All of the grilled plates have...More

Great combination for those who want to eat meat and fish until you faint. Free Argentine barbecue buffet and freshly cooked fish and sushi done right on the spot. Buffet with side dishes of all kinds. Great location, in Via Laietana 2 just opposite from...More

Great rich buffet with huge amount of things to eat! And great sushi! Not expensive, so definitely worth of the money!

We were visited this place as the ptrvious reviews tated it as 4.5 stars, but it was a huge disappointment. The sushi is very "average" like in cheap restaurants, the seafood prepared "on-the-plancha" is oversalted and not tasty at all. My wife tried the Argentinian...More

Friendly and tastey Japanese-Argntinian buffet. The restaurant offers a rich buffet and also cooks from raw on demand. Had a good lunch there and recommend it.

We quite liked the look of this restaurant from the outside, advertising Japanese / Argentinian food. Once inside, it is clear that this just a buffet with a selection of Sushi, salads, seafood and fish, Chinese dishes, Spanish ham and bits and pieces... and a...More

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
