We were craving for Sushi after being in Peru for 2 month without eating any Sushi. This place absolutely satisfied all our desires, their sushi was delicious, very well presented and relatively quickly served. The Miso soup was good, too. The restaurant was empty when we arrived on a Friday night at around 8, the staff was friendly enough and... More

Living in Cusco, and craving for some fresh Sushis for a while. Me & my girl friend tried to go to Kintaro three time to fill up our desire for Suchis.. Their menu is so appealing.. Unfortunately, we always popped in between 8.50 and 9.20pm, and it always has been impossible to get a table.. We were told it was... More

Before I write the review I commend the Japanese owner as making authentic Japanese food in cusco must be very difficult. I am guessing that he is trying his best with what he has. Nonetheless the food honestly tasted like Japanese airport food. The lack of taste in the dashi and the texture of the Panko in the Katsudon was... More

I was craving some Japanese food and needing more than white rice and bread (typical of Peruvian dishes). The restaurant opened promptly at 6:30pm ( I had arrived early and just browsed around an adjacent market. I was immediately shown to my table. So nicely decorated inside and felt very authentic. My meal was quick and very delicious and quite... More

Serene second floor setting, very friendly (and authentic) Japanese service, great food. Lunch was very reasonable - 20 soles for a huge bowl of udon with a cucumber appetizer, lovely green salad and barley tea.

This place is truly a hidden gem in Cusco. My partner and I have been to Japan twice and absolutely love the food, so we decided to give this place a try. The ambience is authentic Japanese with beautiful wooden benches and minimal tables. We both ordered the lunch special (Katsu don and Hiyashi Udon), which were SO GOOD. I... More

Menu is sparse but legit, staff is friendly and attentive, cook had zero problems with substitutions for my vegetarian fetish, cook's wife had zero problems interpreting my god-awful attempts to speak Japanese. Ambiance of the restaurant is as hardcore oriental as you want to make it, right down to the handful of tables set at kneeling height on the floor.... More

I have heard great things about this restaurant but unfortunately every time I have attempted to eat there the restaurant has been randomly closed or I have been turned down (twice). The staff is poorly organize and unable to serve more than a couple customers in their restaurant at a time.... So unfortunately for Kintaro I have taken my business... More

Dear Jennifer Thank you very much for your comment on Trip Advisor while you are traveling to Cuzco. We are open for lunch from noon to 3 p.m. and for dinner from 6 p.m to 9:30 p.m (last order). But sometimes food runs out and we close little early. This happens due to a large volume of unexpected reservations/visits -... More
