    Just what it should be

    This place is a great bargain and the food is just what it should be; I don't give it top ratings because it is more traditional than adventuresome. The ceviche is exceedingly refreshing and comes in a large serving that will do for two easily. The waiter recommended the mixed ceviche, but in restrospect I think I prefer versions based on a single fish where the taste is purer. The traditional yams served with the ceviche seemed to be boiled rather than baked, so a lot of their flavor and sweetness was lost; however, the ceviche was not particularly spicy so the yams were not as important as they are with a really hot version. The chupe is a meal in itself and well worth trying. The grilled beef heart was nicely done and hot green sauce with it a real treat. Wine list is short, but pleasant and reasonable.

    Pretty Good Food

    I am proud to say I am Peruvian and I think for sure Lima's Taste is the best place in Manhattan where I can eat Peruvian food without getting dissapointed. Their tasty dishes bring the Peruvian flavor of our delicious food. The aji de Gallina, the Cebiche, etc, etc. are good, so when I read a comment saying this kind of selection is imposible to find in Lima I wonder where this person went because I am also proud to say we have a huge list of wonderful places in Lima itself and in NYC, Lima's Taste is always my pick.

    That good

    I'm tempted not to share just how excellent this little place is because it's small and will become tougher to get into. everything we had was par excellence, seriously. No Peruvian place in Lima or the supposedly great outposts in Queens compares. My chupe de camarones was the essence of shrimp. The ceviches of tuna and of grilled shrimp/scallops were outstanding, and creative too as you couldn't easily find these varieties on a menu in Peru. On to the mains: we had the sudado (steamed fish in beer), totally flavorful, tho they sure are proud of it at $28 bones. My wife and her friend had the lomo saltado (they really did use filet in this dish) and a picante de mariscos which was excellent. on top of it all, the sangria was excellent. i love this place

    Being Peruvian and trying to find a good Peruvian in the city has been challenging. I decided to try Lima's Taste and it was exquiste. The Ceviche was so fresh, my cousin had Aji de Gallina and I have never tasted that dish the way they prepared it. And the Chupe de Camaron just sent me back to Peru itself. Just great great great. The place is nice and private.

    Peruvian food rocks!

    I was invited to Lima?s Taste by a Chilean friend who is a regular to this wonderful restaurant. I never tried South American food, except Mexican and Brazilian. I am Russian and most restaurants I go are Russian, French, Italian. We decided to order several dishes since he said that Peruvian food is very diverse. The first dish I tried was ?cebiche? which as soon as I tried it, I was already asking for a second one. The juice called ?leche de tigre? (tiger?s milk) is so tasty that I ended up sipping it from the dish. Then, I had some ?anticuchos? (grilled cow?s heart). At first I was a little reluctant, but decided to order it. I still have the flavor of the anticuchos in my mouth. And the canchita (fried corn) which I ate throughout. The night made a wonderful experience for us. We are going back this weekend to try other dishes, but for sure I will order cebiche again.

    Great Food!

    The "canchita" that is served while you are deciding what to order is very tasty and enticing...I always ask for more. The "cook/owner" is a Peruvian woman who adores her kitchen and takes pride of it. Her food is addictive. I used to go to their other location on avenue A, but it closed. Needless to say, I followed them. It is GREAT!

    Fantastic Ceviche!

    After several visits to Lima's Taste's East Village Branch, we decided to try the West Village branch for my birthday. I came here with 5 picky eaters and everyone left happy! The food is excellent, from the ceviche (try the ceviche caliente) to the chicken to the anticucho (cow heart, but it's great!) The ribs are also very good. They do like onions, so make sure your date eats some too!
