Dined here once with my husband. We both ordered the Peruvian rotisserie chicken which was good and served with the typical white and green sauces. The white sauce was rather thin/runny and less flavorful compared to what I've had at other Peruvian restaurants. The fried plantains were good. French fries very good. We also shared a tamale which I liked... More

We stopped in here after the Clayton turkey bowl, the food was great. They have a large variety of Peruvian dishes and the chef is amazing. Will definitely stop here again

Overpriced but tastes OK, Hard to spend $9 and get a cheap leq quarter with decent rice and beans. Go to Caribbean Delight for better food cheaper

Nice, clean place. Food is well serve and great flavor. I ate arros con mariscos, and was great. Totally recommended, if you want to try something exciting.

My friend and I went to Lucky Chicken on a very hot June day and were surprised to be the only two people in the restaurant at close to noon on a Saturday. We both ordered the 1/4 chicken. I received a thigh and leg while my friend got a breast and wing. Had I realized that an all white... More

My fiance and I had ordered the Polla a la Brasa last week.. We were told that the whole chicken portion was for about 4 people but we figured we could have left overs. So, about 5 minutes after we ordered we were told they actually didn't have a whole chicken and only had halves (you think they would have... More

I never can decide whether I want to order the roasted chicken, or one of their seafood dishes. Both are prepared well. I don't know why this place isn't packed every night. It's very good!! If you haven't tried it, order a Pisco Sour. Adults-only Peruvian drink. Knock your socks off!!

This restaurant features peruvian food. It is nice to see some different food options in the Clayton area. The front of the restaurant looks almost like a takeout restaurant but don't let it scare you away. Inside is very cozy and clean. The servers and manager are very pleasant and attentive. The server told us peruvian food was a mix... More

Used to be a good rest but since they open another location in Cary. Clayton location is not good anymore. Chicken not enough cook. Small portions of food and expensive. Most of the time they run out of the green spice sauce or of their food in the menu. Service very slow
