Great restaurant. Friendly staff. Food was delicious. Sangria was awesome. Highly recommend the empanadas and corn pie to start. Were able to accomodate table of eight. Be sure to bring cash and get a Chimu VIP card. With it, you get 20% off the entire check if you pay in cash. Enjoy.

I recently ate at Chimu and found the food to be delicious. The empanadas were perfectly seasoned, and they weren't greasy at all. The sangria was sooo good. My only gripe is that our main courses weren't served as hot as they should have been. Overall, it was a great dining experience.

I've been to most of the Peruvian places in the city and this one is the best...my Peruvian girlfriend whose opinion you should trust more says so too. The ceviche de pescado is very good as is the tallerin verde, lamb seco and arroz con leche. I'm sure the other dishes are just as good, but I've only been there twice.

Not being from 'burg, went to menupages to find a different restaurant. Saw the reviews and thought it would be a nice place. We were overly pleased. I didnt see in any reviews but they have a beautiful outdoor seating area as well as a nice interior. Service was excellent for a slow sunday night even though the restaurant was fairly occupied. Authentic food, nice avacado salad and empenada. Dinner was great. As stated, try one of the pasta dishes. My wife had the steak one, it was good. I had the lamb stew with a delightful sauce. We both had a drink and our bill with tip was $65. We will absolutely dine here again!

I have been to Chimu twice in the past couple of months. This was the first time I had ever eaten Peruvian food and it is DELICIOUS! Every single thing that we order each time has been outstanding. Some dishes to try are the avocado salad, this stuffed mashed potato thing with onions, chicken and steak empinadas, the steak fried rice, and the steak with cheese spaghetti. The dessert was even great! We had the carmel crepes and rice pudding. This is truly a great restaurant and I can't wait to go back. Everyone should try this restaurant out!

I can't say I have given a five ever. This is a first and well worth it. I came to this place with my boyfriend. We are good for going places at odd times when no one else is there. I had a feeling that this place was worth it and boy was I correct! I ordered sangria and it was sooo good. Then I orded chicken spaghetti. It was the best spaghetti ever! Period! I love Mancora, but this place just tastes more authentic and like what you would have in a Peruvian home to me. We ended up ordering another order of chicken spaghetti to take home for lunch the next day. It was just that good. Try this place at lunch or early on Sunday for the down times. It's a little dark atmosphere, but oh so worth it.
