Meal prices range prices are large....from 6 - 20 dollars. But if you stick with the half chicken you'll be around 10 bucks. Service was very quick and food was delivered in a quick manner. Obviously go with chicken if it's your first time. One good thing is that the spice is all on the side and you can make it as spicy or mild as you want. I saw someone else order plantains...they were huge. Best Features - Very good variety of main meat dishes and side orders. Chicken breast was good very well and was tender and moist.

The interior leaves a lot to be desired. Could use some updating!! The food is served family style. The chicken is very moist and flavorful. The rice is rice! You have to "jazz it up" with spicy sauces! At the end of your meal you will get sticker shock!!! It is very inexpensive.

Dined @ 422 E. Main St. Middleiown. Only open six weeks or so. Partner and I both tried the 4 piece version of chicken and we both thought it was best we have ever had in any restaurant. Moist, flavorful, and cooked to perfection. Used aji sauce(Tasty) and the hot sauce which was warmer than spouse enjoys. I was okay with it. Peruvian red wine was very fruity and to sweet for my tastes.
Extensive menu and will definitely get back to try other dishes.. Chicken soup is a meal, and a very good one.

We finally tried this restaurant after living in the area for years. Clearly, our loss for not going sooner. If you're craving roasted chicken, yellow rice, and the most amazing sauce (slightly hot, a Peruvian staple), look no further! The Cilantro soup is also outstanding!! I find we go here more often than not if we have no particular plan in mind... You won't be disappointed.

Just went there to try something new but was happily surprised with the good food and ambience.
Tried chicken breast with beans and rice. Very tasty and perfectly cooked chicken.
