Charbroiled chicken is one of my favorite things ever! Probably because of the crispy skin. This didn't disappoint in that regard. There are a couple of Peruvian Chicken joints around town and I've been to most. This was excellent. The char was perfect. The plantains were yummy. Don't be fooled by the fact this place is in a shopping plaza... More

This is just the best food ever. The chicken is awesome as are the plantains and black beans and rice. I could eat here every day!

At first I did not have high expectations. A restaurant in a shopping mall, empty, average decor. Ordered the Carne Asada plate- Excellent presentation; vg food and vg service. The place filled up as we ate, the locals all know this spot. Nothing fancy,recommend for an easy, filling lunch or dinner. They had some really good looking rotisserie chicken and... More

We tried it when they first opened without any idea about Peruvian dishes. I loved almost all the dishes that I tried there. The roasted chicken is great, but I tend to order more authentic Peruvian dishes. My absolute favorite is Anticucho Mixto (grilled beef heart and tripe served) served with roasted potatoes and big kernels of corn (not sweet... More

I never had Peruvian before so I have nothing to compared with. The food is good with reasonable price. They are very helpful if you ask them.

We never had Peruvian fare before, so we ate here while we were in the area. The man behind the counter was very helpful in explaining the dishes. The food is different from Mexican or Tex-Mex, but along the same lines. We enjoyed the different sauces and yucca fries, and would have gone back to try a different dish, if... More

Great lunch spot. The food is tasty, filling, and a decent price. I don't live in the area but would definitely drive out of my way for this place. I enjoyed their food. Well done.

It's definitely not Sardi's Pollo a la Braza, but it's good. Went later in afternoon. Had the half chicken with vegetables (which were a little overdone) and platanos with their signature sauces. Clean, open atmosphere. A good intro to Peruvian cuisine if you've never tried it, but if you're near a Sardi's, there is no comparison.

fabulous fresh chicken--scrumptous! Go and try the chicken--the spices are mild but amazing. Chicken is hot and fresh. get a whole chicken to take home for dinner and avoid the supermarket processed chicken and rush -hour crowds. you will not be disapointed.
