We went for father's day and they had 1 waitress, it took for ever to get service, after a long wait the anticuchos were raw, the Tiradito tasted terrible, I was so hungry but could not eat it. The most frustrating part was when they brought the bill back. We had ordered 3 plates and were charged for 4, the... More

This is a casual neighborhood joint. This place is fine. It's hard to get excited about it, and it's hard to criticize it. On the one hand, the Peruvian menu looks exciting. One the other, the pollo saltado was essentially French fries, chicken strips, tomatoes, and rice. But it was good. The atmosphere is friendly and bright, yet the owner/waiter... More

Because we are planning a trip to Peru, we thought we would try this place not far from our workplace. Had read a few reviews before coming, and because there was so much variation, I really didn't know what to expect. Everything was adequate; the food the service, the atmosphere. Nothing in particular would draw me back.

I've never had Peruvian cuisine and was pleasantly surprised at the flavors. I ordered the Tallarin saltado de carne (pasta in a beef sauce with tomatoes and onions) and my friend ordered the Aguadito de Mariscos (seafood soup with cilantro flavoring). Of course, we had to taste each other's meals and both, we agreed, were delicious. Josh even asked what... More

I am not fond of Peruvian food, but my friend wanted to eat lomo saltado, hence to the Peruvian restaurant we went. I ordered carne asada and she lomo saltado, my carne asada was good but her lomo saltado was excellent. She also ordered Chicha morada, a Peruvian sweet drink made from corn, it was delicious.

We visited this little restaurant on memorial day. Surprisingly, the place was quite busy considering its location. The service was prompt and good. We ordered a Peruvian steak, a cau cau seafood with rice, a pisca sour, and Peruvian cookies for dessert. the steak was hard and blend. Not that they overlooked it ( I ordered medium rare), I think... More
