Sushi Is amazing! Fish Is utterly fresh, cut to have the right texture. Place Is cozy, quiet and very small (8 tables), so don't forget to make reservations.

A tiny little spot with very fresh sushi and a wonderful selection of all types of raw and cooked fish. Had an all salmon selection and of course our favorite salmon skin roll as well. All fresh and delicious. Splurge on the dessert medley it has four desserts and is really good. Enjoyed our meal here very much!

Buenos Aires is known for beef, pastas, pizzas and their fantastic gelato/icecream and not their seafood. That said, Tenkuu is the best sushi my wife and I have had in Argentina. We've tried sushi at about 6 different restaurants in this city over the last 10 years and this is the best of them.

PROs: ask the sushi chef to recommend something. He will ask you a few questions then produce a fantastic tray for you. Great salmon nigiri. Possibly the best miso i've ever had. Tasty desserts (not Japanese but good). Nice sushi bar.

CONs: No tables for groups over four people. Difficult to get a table without reservation. Argentine sushi options are limited to salmon, some white fish, shrimp (and octopus when available)

(Full disclosure: we are friends with one of the two Japan-trained sushi chefs)

I went a few months ago. Asked for the most expensive wine in the list. They brought the bottle, I tried it, and it way gone, super acid, undrinkable. They said I would have to pay for it anyway, took the bottle away and brought a different wine I ordered. Drinkable, barely. I asked for the Original bolttle, yo empty in the gutter, and they brought it back, The food was good, the service was good, but the owner's attitude was rude and unacceptable in ANY restaurant. Told them they had lost 2 good customers, left, emptied bottle in gutter, Never again!.
