To begin with, the Peruvian food menu is very limited. We tried Ceviche, Lomo Saltado and Aji de Gallina. The ceviche did not include neither sweet potato nor corn, it was more like a raw fish soaked in lime juice with chooped onions on top, the onions did not even have the lime juice flavor. The Lomo Saltado was less than OK, you could even count the pieces of meat on a plate full of rice. The Aji de Gallina was acceptable, but any Peruvian who cooks knows that it is the easiest dish to prepare, you can not go wrong with that. No chicha morada or bottled water was available. The service was not great either, you could feel that they were rushing you to leave quickly. I would not recommend this place to any Peruvian, it was a big dissapointment.

Im not a review type of person, but if you like chicken, I figured Id let you in on a little secret, this place's Puruvian chicken is the best chicken I have ever had, great spices, healthy, fresh, reasonably priced, and succulent...mmmm

Its a commoners place where a common South American Asian Peruvian culture collides in a diner fashion. And like our American diners, that doesn't mean its good or bad- its a diner. Don't let the best chicken from the 1990s stop you. Think do you want a table cloth with a recent zagat review or do you want to spend 10 bucks and be full on something other than chipotle and a plastic fork. When I was in Peru I usually ate chicken fried rice. Here I had a tasty garlicy fresh sauteed watercress that could feed an army and the main dish was like... well I'm not sure. It was hidden by sauce but I saw some chicken. I'm still unsure why so many Latino-esque people crave the spot. Hmm? Staffs quick.

I must admit, we went in thinking this was a peruvian restaurant. People streaming out led us to believe that this was going to be good food. That said, the Chinese food we ordered was absolutely not good. I was surprised when the menu was 25% Peruvian and 75% Chinese. Decided on Lo Mein and an appetizer, both of which were some of the poorest Chinese I have ever had. The rest of the table had similar experiences. Every shabby bar we visited after eating here, someone commented "wow I wish we had eaten here".

This is the best restaurant ever. Its one of the few that I go to reguraly. The people there are great. They do their best to make you happy and are always pleasant. The food there is the best! One plate that I recommend is Lomo Saltado, they do wonders on this dish. The bad only bad thing I can say about this restaurant is that it can get crowded on weekends around 8pm. But for the food its well worth the wait.

Been here twice and I was very happy and pleased on both occasions. Their chicken is so good. Fried rice was awesome. My boyfriend always orders the super nutcracker. It's a stiff drink but when you are done with their large portion of delicious meal, you will be smiling all the way home. If you haven't tried it, stop by or order something. The Peruvian/Chinese appears to kinda odd combo but I think they took the best of two and combined it very nicely and the price is also right!
