Nothing bad to say about this place! Have been 3 times since being in cusco and have been happy every single time. 10 soles for the vegetarian buffet; and other menu items are affordable too. All really tasty, good atmosphere.

went here with friends a couple of weeks ago and left disappointed. I had a Thai Green Curry, which except for the color, had nothing to do with a thai curry (not spicy, no noticable coconut, no chili, no lemongrass, no cilantro, not the right vegetables), although the flavor was not that bad. If you want to make an own... More

For 10 soles you get a terrific variety of vegetarian options like lasagne, pastas and savouries. Delicious food and an absolute steal at the price. The atmosphere is terrific too!

I walked up and down around Cuzco looking for a true vegetarian cuisine. From the moment you step in, it feels like you're home. The beautiful decoration will take you back to your childhood. They have the best buffet for a minimal 10 soles. The main meals go from veggie lassagna to stuffed fish for those non-vegans. Incredibly affordable. I... More

Our waitress was friendly and eager to help with selections and to fill us in on the history and ethos of the restaurant. NOTE If eating... More

Really delicious food at very reasonable prices. Also one of the most unique atmospheres and decor you may ever come across. The Friday lunch buffet is vegetarian and all you can eat for only 10 soles. The food is so good that you'll definitely love it even if you're not a vegetarian.
