I met my sister in the city for lunch, as we both had the day off. A friend had told her about this restaurant and we decided to give it a try. The bad news is we were seated without a menu, table setting or even water for 10 minutes as the staff and what appeared to be the manager walked by us several times. We got ONE menu after hailing someone down. The folks at the table next to us had crumbs on their table so I assumed they had finished and were waiting for their check. As it turned out, they had eaten their bread and after 20 minutes were still waiting to be served. After realizing what our experience would probably be like, we left - no apologies from the staff. The good news is there were no tempting aromas for us to wonder what we missed.

After a hectic sunny day on the upper west side, the smell of well seasoned rotisserie chicken hit me on Amsterdam ave and 84th. Harriet's was the source, yet I was so hungry I wanted to devour it right on the cashier's counter... I left feeling there was no hope to satisfying my impulsive taste buds in to a juicy thigh. As I approached 83rd street I felt so idiotic not remembering my good old pals at Flor De Mayo. Where I can converse in Spanish faster than the speed of light with my fellow Asian-Peruvian comrade. Heineken's are ice cold food is plentiful not lopsided (you know what I'm talking about, a pound of rice with two chicken wings). Best value for your buck period, unless you head north ;)

I went there on a sat. night party of 7. I gotta say the ceviche was excellent and they have this famous plate called chicken with red sauce I also found this to be a delight! And if u want to get ur money's worth you have to get the Super Nutcracker! deeelicious!

Really enjoy the food good mixture of Peruvian and Chinese food. The cerviche mixto is really good. This place is casual dining and there are a good amount of servers so you get your food pretty quick.

Came here late on Friday and we were seated right away. A hidden place...I'd come here only for their peruvian food, not their chinese. VERY good peruvian roasted chicken...yum! Not very pricey and authentic food...what more could you ask for?

Probably my favorite restaurant in NYC. Unpretentious. you must try the broiled pork chops and any of their specials. Friendly wait staff, even if English is not their first language. Just a happy real-NYC place to eat.

chicken was stale, rice was hard and sauce wasn't even spicy. Would not recommend to anyone.
