We had a wonderful meal there. They serve complimentary chips and salsa and queso as an appetizer. The portions were unexpectedly large, which was a nice surprise, and the food was rich and tasty. Good prices, friendly staff, and a nicely decorated interior.

We only come here for the De Polo chaufas (Peruvian dish). We don’t care for the Mexican dishes, rice is bland but tender and they use hormel can chili, ugh.

Every time we go there we don't know what to chose because they have wonderful plates. I will recommend papa a la huacaina as appetizer, ceviche or pescado silao and churros as a dessert.

We had a group about that size and they seated us! They gave us a whole section on one side of the restaurant. There isn't an area for parties though
