Yum! Went for pre-theater lunch with two friends. I can't say enough good things about this place. First, our server, Lupe (forgive me if I spelled this wrong) was lovely. Charming and gracious, he described everything in detail and guided us through the menu. He mixes an excellent cocktail too -- my ginger/pisco cocktail was delicious, and I loved the sip I tried of my friend's passion fruit cocktail. We split a mixed cebiche, which we all loved, very fresh, lovely flavor. I ordered the Chaufa De Pollo, which is Chinese-style rice with rotisserie chicken. It was wonderful! I can't wait to go back and make my way through everything on their menu.

Picked this restaurant for it's convenient location across from the Barrow St. theater but found the food to be amazingly good. We were treated like royalty by Loopy (sp?) who may be the owner. Great ceviche mixto. We then had Aji De Gallina (terrific chicken dish and big portion easy to share) chinese style fried rice dish (very unusual and tasty), shrimp tacos (amazing sauce) and for dessert, a classic flan that was fantastic. Highly recommend this place.

Best Peruvian food in NY

If you turn up toward the end of service on a sunday night., then the waiters/manager should tell you. The service here was dreadful. Plates and glasses were taken the moment someone finished and dessert was offered to one of us before the other was finished eating his main. It was so bad that I asked that they didn't hurry us. Towards the end they even put the TV volume up and were clearly very keen to get home. How simply would it have been that they just say when we arrived that service had finished. The food; dull as dish water and over priced. A ruined evening! Though it was so bad it was funny

The food at Panca is actually pretty good. It's fresh and tasty, and if I were basing my opinion of the restaurant on the food alone, I would definitely go back. However, the service was the absolute worst service I've encountered in a NYC restaurant in years. It took about 45 minutes to get our main courses and 25 to get our dessert. We had just told the waitress to cancel our dessert and just bring us the check when our dessert finally arrived. I'm not sure what the hold-up was with either course because the restaurant wasn't particularly crowded, and it was relatively early on a Thursday night. Because of the unpleasant service, there's no chance I'll ever go back here.

Found this place just by walking around and stopped in because I was in the mood for sangria! Delicious Peruvian sangria; a little differnet from Spanish sangria, not as fruity, but still good. I couldn't stay for dinner since I had another engagement but I had an appetizer (yuca) and it was quite yummy. The decor and atmosphere are superb! I look forward to going back real soon.

I am Asian and may not know the difference, but I do care about food, value and service. We had a small birthday dinner here today and it was fabulous. Service was good, but could be because the restaurant was not packed tonight. The Fritos and Octopus cerviche was yummy. Then we shared 3 main courses and all 3 were flavorful and fresh. If you like a strong cup of java, you can't go wrong here and my friend said the mojito was really good. I want to know how they make that rice, beans and potato mixture served with that skirt steak. Get me a small salad along with this rice, I can eat it every other night.
