Good service. Accept cash or card. A little far away from the city center but it’s an old established restaurant (from when Asian people came to Argentina in the mid 1900). Id recommend going in the midday. Good atmosphere. Friendly staff. Not very crowded when we’ve been and opened from 11 to 22 straight (we had lunch at 15hs a Saturday). Tried and shared different soups and a Korean drink. Many plates are spicy but there are also others which are not. Pricey but not that much. Look for them on Facebook. Beautiful interior design.

I brought my family to Buenos Aires for 2 weeks vacation. We’ve really enjoyed Buenos Aires, especially the restaurant scene. My wife was in the mood for Korean food and we saw the great reviews posted on TA, so we decided to give it a try.

We took an Uber and it was a 20 minute ride from Puerto Madero. Probably the best way to get there is by cab/taxi.

The food: Presentation is clean and fresh ingredients. You can tell the quality is top notch. Being a foodie from New York, you can tell right away that is is an amazing find. All the dishes were excellent. We were very impressed!!!

My husband spent a month in Seoul recently and was craving some Asian food after weeks of bife de chorizo and empanadas.
Won’t lie, on the way here we were a bit alarmed at where we were going, but ended up in somewhat of a Koreatown in BA- who knew!
The restaurant itself is on a quiet side street, very busy but efficiently run by a family. The menu is simple, but food was excellent (bulgogi particularly)- totally worth the long taxi ride! Recommend to others missing some spicy Asian food

After living in Buenos Aires for more then a year, un cancion coreana became my absolute favorite restaurant. Especially when you like spicy food, this is the place to be. But there are also plenty of non-spice plates to choose from. The price is really low for the amount of food that you get for it, and the owners are the nicest of all!

Where do I start? Great service, great food, lovely owners! If you want to move away from the touristy scene look no further! Very authentic.
