My husband is from Peru and we've tried 3 different restaurants and this one by far we like the best. Their cilantro rice is on point every time. I've had it at another place and it was hard as a rock. We go here at least once a week

Stumbled upon and did not regret: the server recommended to us great dishes, he was prompt and friendly, the décor is so-so but the location, price and quality of food makes up for that. Highly recommend if you are in the area shopping and in the mood for good South American food.

Since I am going to Peru in the summer I though I would try out this place. Love the food. The green dressing on the bread was very tasty. There is a nice variety on the menu and all are reasonably priced.

We went here for lunch and the food was delicious, the service was very good, but it was pricey for lunch. Came to $60 for 3 of us including tax and tip. I had the chicken combinado which was grilled chicken with onions and tomatoes served with white beans and rice. Very good and plenty of food. My son had... More
