Peruvian roast chicken is seriously good. But dont stop there, the side dishes are a treat too. Also ask for the specials, had the salmon pasta which was special for the day, Its just injustice not to try their dishes there

Base on all the reviews, I was expecting more. We didn't make a reservation therefore not expected to get seated immediately. However, the hostess offered us a tall table by the entrance to the kitchen. With all the hustle and bustle, we decided to give...More
