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

The food is really good, you will think you are not any more in cusco, and the restaurant offer you the choice, the Menu is big and you can have what do you prefer with reasonable price or also more expensive choice with the sushi for example but that's depends of you but you will enjoy for any plates you...

My wife and I had lunch at Kintaro one day and dinner there the next day. On both occasions we enjoyed the food and the ambience.

I was in cusco for 4 months, and I don't even remember how many times I visited this restaurant to hang out with the handsome japanese owner and enjoy the delicious food! I did not expect to have fresh trout sashimi nor real Japanese dishes in such highlands. Also, though the restaurant is located in the center area, the price... More

The restaurant is on the second floor, which is not easy to find. We were a bit reserved when we first checked out the place as we have high standard on Asian cuisines. We ordered a karaage (Japanese style fried chicken), a tempura soup udon and an oyako don, and all are pretty tasty. All are very authentic, except for... More
