Food it's always tasty, good service, but sometimes can be very slow. The quinoa breaded chicken dish it's my favorite!

Food was good and very hearty portions. Price was high considering where it is (over $40 for 2 people), but in hindsight we probably could have shared one meal and got out a lot cheaper. I found the service to be quite good. They didn't speak any English nor have an English menu, so you need some basic understanding of... More

Peruvian food cannot be done wrong because it is easy to notice. Good and friendly service support a quick turnaround variety of dishes that provide a glimpse of what Peru is about. Tiradito de pescado con leche de tigre and cancha along with Ceviche are a must. Nice to know Peru is not that far away...

Went there for lunch. Service is pretty bad however food is good. Prices are a little bit high. It's location is dangerous at night and during the day you must be careful with deep pockets. I strongly recommend " pollo asado con papas fritas".

The plates that we ordered were very well prepared, fresh, and delicious. The seco of lamb (cordero) and the ceviche were excellent. The Peruvian Pisco Sour was sweet. The service was excellent and the place was clean. Reviewer is a native Peruvian.

Is a popular restaurant, is like go to KFC peruvian version. Better that fast food but nothing great. If you are hungry go there. Ceviche is the best.

I've just had a lunch there with my husband and I seriously am pissed a little bit. The restaurant looks very old and not well maintained at all. The waitress we had was super unfriendly, I'd say rude. Everything is extremely overpriced especially for these foods I truly don't understand how can they charge this much. I'm very disappointed, please... More

El Aji Seco has a very wide selection of authentic Peruvian food. This is a fairly nice restaurant with mid range prices. They used to have a variety of inexpensive options on the menu, but they have raised the prices on these so that the whole menu is mid range. Really, everything is of good quality. Anything you order will... More
