Really wonderfully made sushi, my partner and I ordered a 15 piece sharing plate as well as another mixed plate of 6 pieces. This was a really nice amount for 2 people, alongside the mango and ginger juice as well. Fantastic textures and flavours, you really don't miss the fish at all! One of the most reasonably priced dinners we had in the city, with no sacrifice to the quality. Definitely a restaurant worth visiting during a trip to Arequipa.

We were looking for something cheap and fresh for lunch. The sushi menu was very simple in the case of the sushi, as there were 16 pieces of 3 different types. I would rather recommend the menu for 1/2 people which is 22S the variety is quite better. The mixed sushi was great!

Me and my friend spent our first dinner in Arequipa at Buda Profano and it was amazing. We ordered the 2 person sharing platter and it included miso soup, cucumber salad, gyoza and sushi rolls. It was vegetarian too! Not to mention it was under $7 USD each (50 soles total). The ambience and decor was also 10/10. I super recommend!

The food and drink were delicious - we had the tempura, sushi clasico, sushi bowl and pisco sours - and very reasonably priced. Atmosphere was pleasant and peaceful. Servers were attentive and helpful. Overall a great dining experience.

We ate dinner here twice during our 6 nights in Arequipa. Very clean and simple food, tasty even without the fish! A calm and pleasant atmosphere, friendly efficient service. My husband is Japanese American and very picky about sushi, especially the rice, and he thoroughly enjoyed it. Even though we have enjoyed having Peruvian food during our month of traveling here, it is nice to have something different from time to time, and this sushi dinner was perfect.

I'm not a vegan, but the food here was really good. The tempura and gyoza were delicious. It came with 3 sauces, all with interesting flavours, but nothing very strong or overpowering. I would say the flavours were mild and delicate. Tried the 6 piece gunkanmaki combo and 2 of the rolls were good while the other one was a bit underwhelming.

Actually we’ve been visiting ‘El Buda’ for some years now. I think there’s not a better place -at least for me- in the city. I tell you, I always come back because I feel safe and enthusiastic there. Going strictly to the food… how is it possible to eat as good and not feeling guilty after it? To my understanding, most of the merits this place has is also because the people behind really care for what they’re doing. And that’s a step ahead.

We came with 4 friends and ordered some amazing sushi. Not missing the fish or meat at all! Unfortunately our friend got sick (not from the food!!) and the personnel was really attentive and helpful. We got to take away the sushi and wine to eat at home. Really great atmosphere. I definitely recommend this place!

Amazing vegan sushi / meal experience. My partner and I had the couples sharing menu. It was amazing. Service was a bit slow, but the place is a must try. Proper relaxed atmosphere and amazing tastes.

Delicious food. Wonderful courtyard ambiance. Friendly owner. I’d come back. If you like Japanese vegan food, don’t miss this.

This is really fine dining for a very good price. It's a nice atmosphere too. Of all the places we ate in Arequipa, this was by far the best.
