About
Like Chinatowns in other countries, Lima's two-block Chinatown is the place to go for Chinese cuisine. The area has undergone a renaissance in recent years after a 1997 renovation in preparation for the 150th anniversary of Chinese immigration to Peru.

Fun but go early on Sunday morning
Feb 2020 • Family
Great place to visit to see the Chinese neighborhood in Lima, has lots of shops selling fresh produce, Asian products, etc and lots of Chinese restaurants. Try the traditional Chinese brunch “Yam cha” which is open as of early in the morning. As the traffic is quite dense in Lima, especially in the center where the Barrio Chino or Chinatown is located, go on a Sunday morning around 9/10 am. Parking lots available.

Dirty, crowded, filthy.

Difficult to get there if you go driving. People walking on the streets make it unsafe and chaotic. Once you get there, the place is dirty, crowded and to be honest, restaurants do not look clean. If you skip this place when visiting Lima, that’s OK, there are many other nice places to stop by and enjoy 🤗

Great experience with food/very flavored and delicious. Good prices. Do not leave Lima-Peru without vising this Barrio and prices are good if you are in Lima y you have a budget.

Foodie Location!

Peking duck! Dim Sum! Chifas offering Peruvian-Chinese fusion plates that are colorful and fresh! Barrio Chino is not extensive but the menus push back the boundaries! If you're not there to eat not much reason to go...

Disappointed
Jul 2018 • Solo
Not that easy to find as it is not signposted. I came on a dull day and found it busy with people, streets dirty, fairly daunting, old not very clean looking restaurants and nothing special. Thank goodness I found the Cerichino restaurant which is a clean trendy small place in the wilderness that serves up great food in a lovely atmosphere.

If you a want authentic dim sum go here!
Apr 2018 • Couples
Like anything chinatown is filled with unnecessary stuff and more plastic do-hickeys in which eventually will sadly end up in the garbage or ocean, however, my advice is if you want traditional dim sum and bao buns go here! Look to see where the asians are eating and choose a spot to sit down to chow down next to them.

Interesting place to walk around ... especially with all of the money changers in the streets, quite a spectacle.

Don't feel bad if you skip this place

If you are in the neighborhood go there by all means, you can't compare this to NY's china town but has tons of restaurant and all of them looked packed. Otherwise, the place is crowded, loud and a bit dirty - this was expected.

Cute, touristy chinatown in Lima
Oct 2017 • Friends
We were 6 visiting after walking from the historical Lima center and the main market near by. Although not many original chinese in the area, it was quite busy. Interesting place to people watch and see the locals.
