    Great Peruvian Chicken

    Ok, so it's not like the Pollo a la Brasa that you can get in Peru, but it is the best in the tri-state area. The chicken, which is so tender it falls right off the bone, is exceptionally good. However, what makes this the best is the spicy sauce that comes with the chicken (very traditional in Peru - you can't have the chicken without the aji). The sides are excellent and it is all very inexpensive. Try the sangria - but it's strong so pace yourself. Also, for the best Peruvian experience - you have to have the Lucuma ice cream. Lucuma is a Peruvian fruit, which is rather dry and sweet, and is most often used in Batidos and deserts, especially ice cream. The lucuma ice cream here is equivalent to the Donofrio brand in Peru (Peru's Haagen Dazs). It is very custard like. You definitely haven't tasted anything like it!

    Rico

    This chicken is juicy and tasty! The green sauce makes it different that the others out there.

    Superb Chicken!

    Yes, it?s just chicken, but this restaurant knows how to cook chicken! The combination of savory chicken and hot source is irresistible. Chicken and side dishes are priced very reasonable. Appetizers, such as seafood salad and mozzarella salad, are equally delicious. But it is puzzling to see that these are priced higher than main dish chicken. If they can offer half size appetizer (for less price), that would be great.

    Come on, It's just chicken!

    I'm sure most of the people that have rated the place, haven't had better. The chicken is, well... just chicken! Nothing great, very simple and very, very far from superb. People get real!

    Magnifico!

    This place is by far the top 3 in my lists of BEST restaurants to dine at. It's of course in the borough of Queens, and the spot is unnoticable. It's one of those, you don't know where it is until someone has shown it to you places. The food there is EXELLENT, especially the jalea! OMG it's definitely worth your money for only $10 a half plate of SOOO much seafood! Imagine that, it could serve up to 5 VERY hungry peolple! Nuts!

    Great place!

    This is a great restaurant to get together with friends and relax. The food is very consistently good- not gourmet- but really good. We like everything we've had there including even a very simple avocado salad they do. The drinks are also done well, especially the sangria. It's a small space that's usually busy but the service is still always good. The classy and fun atmosphere only adds to a nice experience.

    A Favorite!

    The UES location is ALWAYS packed. The food is suberb, the staff remembers customers, and the sangria is so easy to drink to much of. I always leave full and fully satisfied. Their staple the chicken pio is amazing, the sides perfect and the seafood platter is great too! I've taken several people here, and everyone loves it!
