I am Colombian, and I have tried so many good restaurants in Europe, so far this place is the most authentic Peruvian food I've found in London. The food is of good quality, they have an amazing and varied bufett at weekends with great quality dishes at a very affordable price. The service is friendly and the restaurant has a... More

I went to try the buffet menu, but I am very disappointed!! Firstly, the price is very expensive for the offer of food (does not include desserts), and they notify with and ad that they will charge £10 extra if you leave food in the small plate that give you... (What happen if I really don´t like some food?). Second,... More

I came here with my family a while back just because. I'd been meaning to try this place for a while and I am glad to say that it did not disappoint. Our waitress, though new, was very good considering that (even if my spanish failed me). Their pisco sours are very good and they had a good selection of... More

Took my partner here, after hearing good things. Safe to say we weren't disappointed, the food was delicous, the portions BIG, and the staff were friendly and helpful. And all for reasonable prices. Will definitely be returning and will certainly be recommending to friends.

Having never eaten Peruvian food before, this was always going to be an interesting experience. What I wasn't counting on was the variety of flavours, colours and textures that came with it! Try something different yet affordable with great service and recommendations.

Such a lovely little restaurant on Essex Road. We went here as a small group of friends. The service was quick and friendly with the waitresses happy to answer all our questions. The food came quickly and was delicious. We'll definitely be back.

We chose this restaurant for a girls night out and the choice was great! There are few places in London that server Peruvian food but are not overly expensive. This is one of them. I shared an Inca plate with a friend of mine. This gives you 6 dishes to taste from and portions are very generous: we could do... More

I am French and I know that since uber-chef Ferran Adrià decided that Peru held the key to the future of gastronomy in 2011, the march of Peruvian food has been unstoppable around the globe. However, it wasn't until I moved to London a few months ago and a very close friend persuaded me to try the Peruvian buffet at... More

The world has been experiencing a Peruvian gastronomic invasion and London is definitely not an exception. Even though there are fancy and very trendy places where you can try Peruvian food, Tierra Peru has what no other Peruvian restaurant can offer you in London, traditional Peruvian flavour. I am Peruvian and I have tried several Peruvian restaurants in London. However,... More
