As I was walking with my husband we came upon this place. Feeling excited at the prospect of gettting some yummy peruvian dishes we went in and were impressed with the decor. That's were it all ended. We got the menu, completely overpriced! But we figured as long as the food is good it'll be worth it. We ordered a Causa, it was super salty and full of mayo. We skipped a main dish and decided to order alfajores... how could they mess that up! Well... they did! Overall it was very very disappointing and yet one more restaurant that doesn't live up to how good peruvian cuisine is. OH! and the service is really poor! we had 2 people serving us at one point, they just kept randomly switching off... but for what we ate (one appetizer and one dessert) it shouldn't have taken us 1 hour and 1/2... Sadly the best thing we had while we were there was the Inka Cola, and that's because it came out of the can...

Do yourselves a favor and go to another peruvian place for dinner. Seems like the management has changed, someone who is not even peruvian owns and runs this place now. Food was ok, but overpriced and service was spottie. I really like the "peruvian waiters" but the owner that was there last night seemed not to care about his customers and didn't even know what was on the menu. Really dissapointed as a fellow peruvian that wants this place to suceed. They need to change their attitude and be a nice humble place as it was 2-3 years ago when it first opened. I'm not coming back here ever again, too many other great peruvian places in queens and NJ.

My girlfriend and I used to love this place and have been going every once in a while for a couple years now. A couple dishes in particular were always fantastic... the Lomo Saltado and the Aji de Pollo. Unfortunately, the quality has been declining our last few times. The Lomo, which used to have most amazingly good filet mignon, now is overdone sometimes and much drier. The sangria also hasn't been as tasty, and in general, everything is just more hit or miss than it used to be. And to make it worse, the prices have climbed on pretty much every menu item as the place has become more popular, so basically every entree is now $20+ and wine and appetizers have also jumped a lot. Lima's Taste can probably still come through on the right night, but it's no guarantee.

Tonight we went to dinner with 2 other couples and................the service was absolutely horrid. The music was blasting so loud that others around us had to yell to their dinner companions. We kept asking for the music to be lowered and instead it was raised. And the sad part it wasn't music you would associate with a Peruvian Restaurant. As other have said there was way too much cilantro in the meals which took away from the other flavors.

too much cilantro, why? Pisco sour was awful, the ceviche was ok but they gave us huge chunks of fish, needs to be chooped smaller and take out that white nerve like stuff out of the fish, the Cancha was good missed that from peru, about The Aji the pollo the chicken chunks are no good needs to be shredded , to the best flavor and tons of cilantro on top. service was poor waitress never checked on us. Maybe that's why we were able to get a table on last Friday nite 8-9 pm no wait. Needs to improve but a huge disappointment

We went there just from passing it on the street - and at first I was very excited - but we were placed in a table in the middle where everytime a waitor walked by - they hit our table and at one point hit it so hard that our food and drinks went flying and they did not even stop to acknowledge this. The food was good - but they offer no assistance when asking a question - and the service was sooooo poor that it far outweighed any other factor. The waitor was hard to find - in fact, I think we had about 4-5 at one point but when it was time to get the bill they had all disappeared. I do not recommend this place - why own a restaurant when you cannot provide a comfortable setting for your diners?
