The food here is authentic. My wife is Peruvian and she loves it. The service is a little slow and its pricey but if you want authentic Peruvian food, you wont be disappointed.

I joined two friends who had an expired groupon coupon for dinner at Villa Peru. Had trouble finding it in the mini mall but they had several vegetarian options on the menu. The taste was bland but it was the first time I had Peruvian food. My friends enjoyed their meals: chicken with rice and seafood platter. Was a quiet... More

We knew we'd come back to Villa Peru and unfortunately we might not be back. We found a deal on Living Social. It promised quite a deal. We went on a Tuesday night so it was not busy. We had even called as requested for the Living Social deal. Too bad we weren't told while on the phone that they... More

We must have picked the wrong dish or gone on the wrong night (a Friday) but our lamb shank dinner was horrible—extremely tough and dry (my wife would have thrown it out). When we told the waiter about it the first time, he brought me a sharper knife to cut the tough meat. When he came back to check, I... More

Villa Peru is a casual, friendly with excellent food. We ate ceviche, seafood soup and aji de Gallina. Each dish was well executed and tasty. The ceviche in particular was clean and fresh tasting. Try something different and go here. Generous portions, so you can easily split some of the dishes. Nice folks serving food too.

We decided to try this little place in Tempe as there are no other "real" Peruvian places as the one on North Scottsdale went out of business? This is why Phoenix does not have a good re for "culture" ..it seems we just do not thave the population that is diverse enough to support a myraid of restaurants outside of... More

Our favorite Peruvian restaurant went out of business so we decided to give this one a try. The ambiance is not as Peruvian as we thought it would be. The waiters (sons of the owner and chef) could be a bit more attentive and practice better memory skills for taking orders or bringing requested items. However, who cares about any... More

We tried a couple of dishes by takeout, so I really can't comment on the dining experience. The dishes we picked up were the Corderito Chiclayano (lamb shank), and Seco de Carne Frjoles (beef). Flavours of both dishes were very good, and I really liked the canary beans that were one of the sides. The beef wasn't quite as tender... More
