Chimu is a great restaurant to visit if you're in the mood for some Peruvian food. The place is small which is the only negative thing I would have to say. The food is delicious and their mango sangria is awesome.

My fiance and I were in the mood for ceviche and thanks to menupages , we came across this fantastic restaurant. We ordered the ceviche mixto and the lomo. The ceciche was one of the best I've ever had! which came with fish, calamari, shrimp,mussels heavily marinated in spicy, lemony juice .The juice was amazing ..! It was so sour and tangy , that it made me make all these funny faces. It came with steamed corn and toasted corn and sweet potato . The lomo was relly good. The meat was full of spice and flavor. Our waitress was awesome.I need to be back here to taste everything in their menu.

My sister took me here on my last night in NYC. It was delicious !!! The quality of the food made up for the lack of ambiance. Great value !!

I'm Peruvian, and the food was unappetizing. I'm not comparing it to the food you get in Peru because it wouldn't be fair (you can't get the same food here), but to other Peruvian Restaurants in NYC. The ceviche was cold, so you can clearly taste that it was not fresh (the potato, and the corn were just out of the fridge). The best ceviche is made at the moment, and in Peru, others just let it rest for 30 minutes, and serve it at room temperature. This ceviche was probably made the day before and stored in the fridge. Same thing with Papa a la Huancaina. The lomo saltado was not good (such a simple dish). For us (Peruvians), if you mess up making Lomo Saltado, it's not worth going to that restaurant ever again. The chicken chaufa was decent. I used a Restaurant.com voucher, so i didn't have to pay full price. A good value for the food??? I don't think so, even with the voucher.. The service was poor. I still have another voucher from Restaurant.com (paid 2 bucks for a 25 bucks voucher), but i will give it away to a friend. I'm a foodie, and i've eaten at good resturants (been to two 3 stars Michelin Restaurants) all the way down to "the one dollar lo mein" at street vendors in Chinatown and Flushing, so i gave Chimu a try. And who knows...you might like it. Me...I didn't.
