Located right in the city, this Chinese restaurant was a delightful find. Not too expensive and with a pretty good menu, the food was good and authentic, with local flavours thrown in. The atmosphere and layout was very typical and familiar, and it was a nice escape from the usual Italian-inspired dishes that saturate the city. The staff were also... More

My three travelling colleagues, who are chinese, went to this restaurant and rated the food very highly. In fact we visted it twice once for dinner and once for lunch. The service was very good and the menu quite comprehensive. Surprisingly it was not very busy. There are very few chinese restaurants in central Buenos Aires and so this would... More

Food was not fresh and smelled and tasted very shallow... The sticky menu says prawns... these were maybe very frozen not fresh small baby shrimps; and on and on… The only positive was the local Argentinian beer.

We visited the place with 5 persons. All felt this restaurant is OK, but not great. Just normal Chinese restaurant, however, in Buenos AIres, it is hard to find chinese restaurant. Therefore this restaurant can be good candidate here.

The restaurant is located in the Centre of Buenos Aires City. It has a very peaceful ambient and the staff is very kind. The menu offers many options, a complete sampling of the Chinese gastronomy. Everything I tried was very tasty. I recommend the courses made with rice noodles.

We ate here twice. It is a nice break from the asado and pizza scene. The sweet and sour soup was wonderful. For us (over 60) it was a meal. Will go back! Good service, clean and friendly. Prices are good.

Staying in Montserrat

Neighbourhood Profile
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighbourhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
