The falafel salad was good, but for S/23 it should have been more or better, it had a lot of lettuce and only 3 falafel balls so it was quite expensive considering what was offered for the price. Still was a nice bite to have.

I was really interested in trying this place because of the reviews, however I was not that impressed. The place is very small. The size of the plates are small, except for the bowls which looked average in size. The prices are moderate, however if you go for the baos you will have to order a couple or some sides to get full.
I had the spicy chicken bao which was good and the confucio one which was ok. The matcha munchies were not what I expected as i really didn't get any taste of coconut or matcha. They just tasted like fried dough.

Like I said, the food is not bad but it's not something you go back for.

This place was about a 5 minute walk from where we were staying, and we went almost every day we were in Lima. There are only a few vegetarian options, but they are all absolutely delicious. The falafel bao was our favourite! One bao is not really enough for a meal, we got two every time. The ninja lemonade was also amazing! Not the cheaper place we found to eat, but it was definitely worth the price. Genuinely sad that we will not be able to visit this place again!

It's so good you don't want to leave any rice corn, piece of meat or vegetable in the bowl.Everything is delicious and very fresh

Stumbled across this gem on a walkabout looking for dinner. The Red Dragon rice bowl that I had was outstanding, washed down with a craft beer.
