We stumbled upon La Empanada Llama when the nearby restaurant we had scoped out for lunch was closed. The Llama is an intimate family restaurant. A front room that will squeeze in 20, is adorned with native decor. It adjoins a kitchen that is separated...More

So many Mexican restaurants in Albany now that it's hard for any to stand out from the crowd. Empanada Llama succeeds by adding Peruvian items and decor, plus well prepared and reasonably priced food. Friendly staff, nice menus. Their empanadas are great, but don't be...More

Easily my favorite takeout restaurant in the neighborhood! I've tried a few of their empamadas so far and they've ask been delicious! I also recommend the chickpeas & greens as a tasty side. Don't forget to ask for the spicy green sauce to go with...More

We had a great, fast meal here and loved the food and service! My boyfriend's empanadas were delicious, though he preferred the shrimp over the beef. Green Tamales were fragrant and generous. Yucca fries crisp and huge. And the rice and chorizo good also. We...More

We ordered the chorizo rice and both beef and chicken empanadas, the chicken was ok, but the beef was extremely flavorless and greesy, nice staff/owner, but very unclean, no air conditioning, it was very stuffy and warm inside

This is a hidden gem, completely unexpected in upstate New York. I heard a random comment about a Peruvian restaurant in Albany, NY, so had to drag my mom (who lived in Peru for years) as my professional evaluator of authenticity. She loved it. I...More

We ordered a lot of food and wasn't disappointed with any of it. The best parts: the green garlic/cilantro sauce, nutella and banana dessert empanada, and the chorizo/cabbage empanada. The good parts: yucca fries and fried plantains, the beef empanada was good but low on...More
