We tried this place because recommended by friends. Decent atmosphere but music is a little loud for dinner time. Friendly service, attentive but not intrusive. We both enjoyed the chicharron de pollo (fried chicken), perfectly seasoned and cooked, the chicken moist and tender with very light batter. The lomo saltado is nicely seasoned but the beef is a little dry... More

I've been coming here for years. The quality of the food continues to be superb. We always get the pollo saltado, chaufa de pollo and pollo ala parilla. The chaufa is like fried rice but with chunks of meat and very flavorful. The Saltado de pollo has a side of rice and the meat is mixed with fries and fresh... More

Lunch specials make this a reasonable alternative, even for those who don't fancy Peruvian cocina. Our shrimp salad, on of the lunch specials, involved a generous mound of greens topped with shrimp in barbecue sauce (not quite what wed expected). Our friend had a tasty-looking noodle dish. The decor was fresh and simple, the service attentive.

This is one of my favorite lunch places. The food is consistently great and the price is right! Some of my favorite dishes are "Lomo Saltado" "Aguadito" and "Chicharrón de Pollo" but everything I order is great. The service is also friendly and there is never too long of a wait for food.

One in our party had lived in Peru for 5 years, so we were anxious to try it. Even though it was not as spicy as what you might find in the Andes, it was very close to being authentic. It was not on the menu, but they were gracious enough to fix Pulta Reina; Avacado stuffed with shellfish-shrimp this... More

We decided to give Mi Lindo Peru a try based on the menu, which seemed totally yummi! The restaurant itself is cosy and the waiting staff very friendly, thumbs up for that. The menu is very extensive and offers a variety of both meat/fish and vegg-based dishes. We opted for a cold starter: mashed potato with shrimps (sorry I can't... More

I brought my mom and step-dad to this restaurant for their send-off to Peru. While service was quite slow, which we only noticed because we had to be mindful of flight time, the food was hearty and comforting. It was a perfect precursor to the warm hospitality and appreciation for local ingredients they would experience in Peru.

This restaurant is really good. I come here once in awhile, and when I do this place does not disappoint. I have tried the Lomo Saltado and Pollo, Saltado De Pollo, as well as the Chaufa De Pollo. All were good. I have no complaints about this place. I guess I have been fortunate everytime I have come here.

Good food and prices, the Paella and Veggie Saltado was delicious. Will definitely come back to try the other dishes next time.

I first came to this restaurant in July of 2009, and ever since then, I'd always make sure to have this restaurant in my SF itinerary. I'm a huge fan of their Saltado de Pollo, and their rice is simply irresistible! I never get disappointed on my trips here, and I'll be sure to keep coming here on every trip... More
