We love to find good off the beaten track "Mom & Pop" places that are family owned and serve non-American fare, and this place fits the bill! Housed in a modest strip mall on 17th St., you might think it is a frozen food-type of barely making it place, but everything we had was fresh, delicious and pretty much unique.... More

They have a great selection and everything is very tasty! Portions are big and reasonably priced. The service is very friendly and the ambiance is just great; really nice Latin music playing all the time. 5/5 can't wait to come back!

Have gone here four times and each time the service and food is excellent. The portions are quite large and very reasonably priced. Limited wine list. Very family friendly. The owner is usually here. He is extremely friendly and helpful in making suggestions. We really love this restaurant. We only wish he was located in Port Charlotte.

Food is great, a little overpriced though. The owners are new to the restaurant life; they need better waitressing service. Over all, a very nice small place with very kind people. I loved the food! That's what matters at the end.

We got to this place a little after noon and it was empty. During our time there, no one else came it. The cook came out to our table and explained all the specials and showed us the pictures on the wall that also showed the specials. Very impressed. The beef stew was very flavorful and tasty, but way too... More

My husband and I absolutely love their Sushi!!! It's so fresh and lots of flavor! My husband is not a big fan of Sushi and he said that the Sushi at Maemi is the best he has ever had! Their Peruvian food was very flavorful and amazing too! I had the Leche de Tigre which is a smaller portion of... More

We enjoyed a great meal here- I was just disappointed they were out of tamales! Our server was so nice and friendly, which is such a nice change! The food was awesome! We all loved the corn they brought out at first. We will be back!

My husband is Peruvian so we are very selective in where we go for Peruvian Food. However, we were pleasantly surprised by the food we found at Maemi. It was authentic and cooked to perfection - it was excellent!!! If you are looking for authentic Peruvian Food, look no further. Enjoy!
