We went for dinner 2 days ago. The staff was really nice, as well as the atmosphere, and the food... we thought. Both of us got really sick after sharing sushis. I guess the food was not as fresh as the restaurant says it is because we our stomachs are still in recovery mode!

Great deal for the price you pay, personally the best curry noodle soup we ever tasted! We also had the teriyaki chicken, which was tasty but we missed a bit more juice to accompany the rice. For lunch, you have a great deal with salad, rice tea, and main dish for a good price.

Best cost/benefit of region. Mains courses starting from s/16,00, coke for s/3,00. We had karague to start, perfectly made, with a crispy cover and succulent meat inside. Then my Curry Udon arrived with an incredible smell. The soup was rich and full of flavors, the noodle seems to be homemade. On top of all this things, the service was inpecable.... More

The place is very nice on a second floor. The food is really good! ! They have great salad and a variety of Japanese dishes.. I wish it'd be open all day.. They are closed from 3 to 6pm.

Craving japanese food - we decided to give Kintaro a try. We wished we hadnt.. The lunch specials are 20 Soles each - we had a chicken soup and tempura vegetables. The soup was bland as if it was just pot water with no stock or flavourings whatsoever. The tempura veg was ok however did not come with a dipping... More

Kintaro was the go-to place in Cusco when our tummies were a little bit out-of-sorts. The chicken teryaki and the chicken soup with udon noodles were comfort foods that made us feel oh-so-much better. Very relaxing and serene dining room, excellent service and very tasty dishes.

Thank Julia K
