We had an excellent experience dinning here! We ordered cashew chicken and lomito saltado after recommendations from our waiter. Both were great, but we especially enjoyed the cashew chicken. I’m not a cashew chicken connoisseur, but it was the best I’ve ever eaten. Our waiter...More

This is a great local fusion restaurant (Chinese and Peruvian). The waitor did an excellent job explaining how the menu was layed out. Plenty of vegetarian options. Great service and amazing food!

Interesting little spot - food was good but not spectacular. Sit further into the restaurant - not on the porch where you will choke on the diesel fumes...
