I went for dinner Thursday evening February 2nd at 6:45 PM. I had the quarter chicken dark meat, with spicy beans, and their salad with house dressing and a Diet Coke. By 10 PM I was violently sick at home and I had not eaten anything else the entire day except for a hard-boiled egg at breakfast. I would not... More

Great find! Chicken was juicy and flavorful, cilantro rice TO DIE FOR, and the spicy beans & verde sauce just topped the whole meal off! I've been back four times since my first visit and I'm sure I'll continue going back again & again & again....!!!! Great customer service too!

Went there for lunch and ordered a Salchipapas with chicken to go. I only had maybe 2 bites and threw it out. The hotdogs were burnt and chicken was Dry. I'm use to a lot of sauce and cheese on Salchipapas but I had one Lil thing of sauce and no cheese. I'll keep buying my Salchipapas at the Columbian... More

Wow! What a find. I had the quarter chicken and it was amazing. This is the kind of place that Pollo Tropicale is trying to copy. This is 100 times better than Pollo. The spicy beans were great too. I will try the ceviche and bisteca steak next time. The next table all got steak and it looks great.

I ate twice at this nice & cozy little restaurant. The staff was very friendly & helpful & the food was delicious & reasonably priced. Ask for the grilled chicken with rice & black beans bowl that is not on the menu. If you are looking for a satisfying, but not overfilling dish at a reasonable price, this will hit... More

I'm still blown away by how many of our friends haven't been here yet. THE BEST chicken in Tampa. We frequent this place quite a bit and it's definitely one of our favorites.

At noon they were slammed, but we were seated and served quickly. The staff is friendly and efficient.Their Peruvian Chicken was perfectly cooked and authentic. The unique Peruvian combination of spices is full of flavor but not hot-spicy. The quarter chicken plate is $7.50; the 1/2 chicken plate is $10. The plate includes two sides. We had the salad, which... More
