Really wonderful place. The food is great, the service wonderful and the prices cant be beat. definitely order the roast pig (pernil). The serving was big enough for two - but order your own. You will want to eat the whole thing!

When visiting NYC and our Forest Hill friends and family...we usually fill a huge table and order 5-6 dishes to share family style. Always plenty, always a variety always delicious! We are always pleased with the fast service, respectful service and family atmosphere.

Great Caribbean Style food. The best roasted chicken and rice and beans in Kew Gardens! 4 out of 5 as their prices are too high for the menu served. Ask for the green sauce! Amazing.

This restaurant is awesome and a good value for the money. The 1/2 chicken dinner and their chicken soup are amazing. If you like Peruvian style food you will like Tu Casa. The chicken is full of flavor, very juicy, and falls off the bone. The chicken soup is home made with lots of flavor and lots of chicken.

This neighborhood Peruvian restaurant has a large menu, but the roast chicken is the definite star. Served with yellow or white rice and beans. Also had the shrimp in garlic sauce. Sauce was amazing, but shrimp were overcooked and a bit tough. Generous portions, so you'll definitely have enough left over for lunch the next day.

Decent food at this Peruvian style restaurant. It's the only decent Latin restaurant in Kew Gardens and get a lot of business from the airline industry that rent apts nearby. For more authentic Latin food, you are better off going to Jamaica Ave ( not the best area but its where locals go to eat).

This is an area of the city where airline pilots stay between flights. Tu Casa is a big hit and all of us Pilot Wives hear of Tu Casa raves from our pilot husbands often. At times, they even bring home big smiles as they carry a mason jar of the "green sauce" into our homes. Pilots travel the world... More

Moved to this neighbourhood years ago and until I got my kitchen set up, this was and still is an awesome option. If the weather is good I'd suggest sitting outside and ordering a pitcher of the Sangria. The lunch specials are a paired down version of the dinner menu and while both are great, the price and value of... More
