First Review by Cassadamius

Decent vegan fare - Edit

This restaurant can either be take out or eat in. You can pay the buffet price of 60 pesos or 25 pesos for the kilo. I had to ask what dishes had egg and dairy, and surprisingly a few dishes that looked vegan had egg as a thickener for the sauce.

Pros: lots of options

Cons: price

Decent buffet-style mostly-Chinese vegetarian - Edit

This is a good place to take my meat-eating Argentine friends to because they'll find something they like. I appreciated the variety of foods, all vegetarian, some vegan. You could fill your plate with a variety of different tastes, from salad to stir-fried veggies to pizza to fake meat dishes (the fake fish really tasted like fish!).

If anything I wish things were more clearly labeled so I could tell whether they contained egg or cheese.

Amazing choice - Edit

The prise on weekend - 60!
It is expensive but it is worth it! The offer very wide range of dishes. Many of chinese cousine, lots with mushrooms, even with the monkey king sort of mushrooms, they bring smth new every 10 minutes. You can mix your own fresh salads. Lots of vegan choises, soya meat, tofu, seitan, etc
They have several types of fruites: papaya, mango, oranges, pineapples, prunes, but they do not let you take as much as you want, they serve you a portion. The same thing was with cakes.

One of many similar restaurants in BA - Edit

This is yet another buffet style, fixed price, Chinese run place that has a large variety, use eggs, and are generally short on flavor and spice. This one also happens to be steeply priced at 52 pesos, perhaps because it is located in an elite area. But unlike some of the other similar places, the hot food here is hot, and does not require a microwave.

Pros: Location, Variety

Cons: Uses eggs, Pricey, Without flavor

Amazing selection! - Edit

One of the most impressive buffets I've ever experienced.

A wide variety of food from many countries.
Every 5 minutes they seemed to appear from the kitchen with a new dish.
Begs the question: is there a such thing as too many options? I say no.

This was a very popular place with the locals, particularly the nurses and doctors that worked nearby, most taking the food to go.

The dessert portion of the buffet included some amazing cakes and a caramel sauce, strawberries with cream, and fresh fruit.

A fantastic find. I'll definitely return on my next trip to Buenos Aires.

Good food, not breathtaking but nothing to complai - Edit

If you go in the evening and want to eat inn, better make a reservation(weekends). The buffet is 43 peso without drinks.
Probably half of the stuff is vegan, the vegan things mainly Asian things. As for the other half, the more western things like ravioli, pizza and empanadas include cheese. There is a salad buffet, mainly just plain salads and vegetables and another buffet with desserts. Only vegan things are fruit or sometimes they have something like fruit puree.
The food all in all was pretty good. Definitely more atmosphere in this place than other buffet place like Los sabios, but in the other hand that one is more expensive than Los sabios.
Would come back for sure, but I can't eat too much of these Asian fried or oilysaucy food. Which most of the veg places in buenos aires are.

Very good food, very good price - Edit

The buffet had two different types of hot food. Half Chinese-style vege proteins cooked in different ways. Half was pastas and other not-what-I-would-associate-with-Chinese food types of stuff. But pretty much all the dishes were quite good. There were two soups; one was excellent and the other was pretty good. The restaurant was fancy considering it was buffet-style, the servers were helpful with answering questions (in Spanish) and the price was inexpensive. I would highly recommend this restaurant. It was probably the best of the six vege places I ate at on my (first) trip to Buenos Aires.

Wonderful Vegetarian Choice in Palermo - Edit

I would recommend this buffet restaurant very highly. The food is excellent and varied and imaginative- including some Asian but mostly Western dishes. The desserts included some great chocolate cake and wonderful flan. The locale is pleasant and not at all cafeteria-like. The staff is very pleasant. The price is excellent.

Pros: great food, pleasant helpful staff, great value

Lots of options, tasty dishes. - Edit

An Asian-inspired buffet with soups, salads, noodles, faux meat stir-fries and desserts. Everything is very tasty and fresh and the place gets packed out. Well-located in Palermo. As with most places in BA not a lot of spice or zest but some interesting flavours. I have been back twice as the food was delicious.

Pros: delicious food, lots of variety, friendly staff

Good food, good location - Edit

This place is located about a 5 minute walk from the Plaza Italia subway stop. They offer good food selection, with lots of vegan options, and a friendly wait staff. Also, it's pretty darn cheap...all you can eat for about $10 isn't too bad of an option in Palermo. Their hours (or lack thereof) are their downfall.

Pros: variety, location, staff

Cons: hours
