Restaurant details
Dining options: Reservations
Neighbourhood: Recoleta
Description: Acclaimed as one of the best places for ramen in Buenos Aires, it offers a variety of traditional Japaneses, Taiwanese and Chinese dishes reflecting the heritage and experience of the chefs who skillfully prepare the food with the freshest ingredients available. The 8-course Asian tapas tasting menu is recommended in the first visit and many share it as the appetizer to then proceed to more tapas or entrees ordered a-la-carte. Carefully selected wines from different regions of Argentina, as well as artisan beer pair well with the food. Vegetarian dishes are also served!

I had given up trying to find a decent, let alone good asian restaurant in Buenos Aires. I was only looking for such a venue this side of the globe because my kids obsess over sushi, and because there is actually a fair amount of so-called sushi shops in town. It turns out really good asian food at a reasonable price can indeed be had, but only if you go to Sintesis. It isn't literally off the beaten path, but neither is it in the most accessible area. Either way, it's well worth the extra walk or taxi drive. The service is excellent too! Just make sure you book in advance as the place gets packed. We were lucky to be offered a spot at the bar but then we did get there fairly early for Argentinian standards.

Really nice small resto. Katsu curry was really good. Ramen is so so...Chicken Teriyaki is pretty good, sauce abit too thick.

We went to this small restaurant without a reservation. They were able to fit us in for a quick dinner. The sushi and Ramen were delicious. The noodles were freshly made. Their rainbow roll had a nice texture due to the tempura inside the roll.

Ready for a change of pace, we tried to book at this restaurant with no luck. Instead, we just showed up and found a place at the small bar for three. The service was outstanding. The owner Oscar is amazing - ever positive, patient, knowledgeable on the food and wine. We split the Tapeo del Mar which was delicious - an incredible variety from gyoza to miso soup to sashimi and sushi, followed by ginger and green tea ice cream. What a great restaurant to have in the neighborhood!
