Unfortunately I don't have a picture because I ate too fast but the food here is super good. There saltado is what I bought and I loved every savory bite. The Inca Cola was yummy as well. It's a Peruvian soda from my understanding. I will be going back often, I keep dreaming about the food!!

The best Peruvian food anywhere. My favorite dish is the Chicken Fried rice. At least one full breast of chicken one or two scrambled eggs, lots of scallions and the best part of the dish, the green sauce. They won't tell me what's in it but you can taste the horseradish with every bite. It comes in a squeeze bottle... More

My first time at a peruvian restaurant. Was at a nearby shopping centre so chose this. Asked the server what his picks would be. Went with his top 2 - roast chicken and beef chaufa. Food was tasty enough but really quite plain. Roast chicken wasn't particularly amaziing. Highlight was the cassava chips side. Food was OK but I wouldn't... More

I absolutely love #23, that's my go-to comfort dish. Service is excellent and quick. Usually I have to-go orders, but whenever I have a few minutes I like to dine in and it's quit a treat.

We ordered mix ceviche, papas a la huancaina y salteado de cordero. Everything was very good. Service is good and... More

We arrived on a Sunday which is a very popular day for families to go out and eat in groups. It was an early dinner but we still had to wait around 15 minutes to get a table. Once we sat down it didn't take long for our waitress to get our order and have the food brought to us.... More

What a find. Terrific Peruvian food; stir fries, curry like dishes, all with various types of protein available. Reasonably priced with super fast service, this is agreat spot to catch lunch or a quick dinner.
