We visited Tierra Peru for a family dinner on a Friday night. We actually landed up without any prior booking assuming that the place would be available in any case. I was wrong. The place was chocablock alleviating any fears that a first timer has :) After a short wait of 10-12 minutes, we got our table. The restaurant is... More

We were looking for a Peruvian restaurant to relive last year's holiday, and chose to go here with a Groupon voucher. The food was very good and authentic - I had ceviche starter followed by lomo saltado, which was made with very tender beef. There was flexibility to choose menu items which weren't included in the deal and we just... More

Service + Ok the English ain't great but accept as part of the charm - go in with a supportive open mind - roll with the punches .... drinks offered to wrong table, confusion re mains/starters but... hey, there is a genuine warmth here - they want you to enjoy yourself Ambience +/- Yes, decor is on the 'dodge' side...

Peruvian food has a reputation for being one of the very best and Tierra Peru really lives up to the hype. I have been there countless times and ordered take away many more. The staff has gotten my orders slightly mixed up a couple of times but nothing that wasn't quickly resolved. The owner is great and knows how to... More

Pregnant woman in our company asked to use he bathroom, staff grinned, laughed and asked her to leave since she wasn't a customer. Clearly heard gosspining behind her back as she walked out. Don't care how "good" the food is meant to be in here, no one deserves that kind of treatment, customer or not! Stay well clear of this... More

Our toilet (we have only one) it is mainly for the use of our customers, if a pregnant woman come to us and politely asked to use the toilet, we have no problems to let them use the it!
