Excellent food - went for the salt/pepper prawns and kung pao chicken and I would consider it really good food, even in new york or san francisco. Apparently they have some problem with foreign credit cards, luckily I had enough cash.

Most Chinese restaruants when your order a meat/fish/chicken dish it usually comes with more vegetables than meat. That is not the case at here - my major coomplaint about this place is the lack of fresh vegetabels. Even the "mixed vegetable" stir fry contained a few leaves of bok choy and canned mushrooms and bamboo shoots. Although the food was... More

We arrived around 8:30 pm on a Thursday night. We started to sit at several different tables and although they were set up for dinner, the tablecloths were all stained as if they had not been changed for several days. Against our better judgement, we stayed and found a relatively clean table. We asked the server about the condition of... More

The service is good and the food is really good. Huge menu. Kind of noisy and the restaurant looks a bit crowded. I think they could lay out the restaurant a little better. But it all starts with the food. And it was great.

We were in BsAs for a few days in September 2011 and had been enjoying the rich Argentine cuisine. After a few days we craved a different taste just to break our pizza, empanada, asado fueled vacation! Found Shi Yuan on Google and walked over there from where we were staying in Recoleta. The food was good--we had soup, noodles,... More

Staying in Recoleta

Neighbourhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterised by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
