Situated in a nice spot in Palermo neighborhood, this tiny place is a really good option to try asian/fusion cuisine in Buenos Aires. They offer a very good variety of sushi as well as dishes like dumplings, thai meals, curries and ceviches. The service is really good and the atmosphere is ideal for couples. The only negative aspect is that beers and wines are a bit overpriced.

My favorite sushi place in BsAs. It's tiny, quiet and romantic (14 seats) and there are only table for 2 or for 4. Great service! Good news: they offer delivery! Love the Inka roll (spicy), green dragon roll, Arizona roll (spicy) and the mixed dessert plate is a dreeeeeeeam! Yum.

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)
