Sazon is Spanish for "seasoning" and synonymous with incredible Peruvian cuisine! We combine family recipes with great service for amazing dining. Peruvian cuisine is a reflection of Peru's diverse geography, immigrant cultures, and even pre-Inca recipes! With a truly unique fusion of cultures, you'll taste dishes with hints of Spanish, African, Italian, and even Asian cuisines. At Sazon, our family serves authentic Peruvian recipes passed down by our great-grandmother, Maria Olinda, who herself boasted Peruvian, African, Spanish, and Italian ancestry! We invite you to share one of our unforgettable Ceviches with a co-worker at lunch; with 7 to choose from including a classic Ceviche Mango or the Ahi Ceviche Nikei with ahi tuna, you're sure to escape your workday stresses. Or bring loved ones for dinner to indulge in the amazing Pollo a la Brasa, free-range chicken marinated with a house blend of traditional Peruvian spices! Whether you're joining us for lunch or dinner, with friends or family, we invite you to savor the unique Peruvian flavors at Sazon!

Very disappointed after reading numerous reviews, Went for lunch on a Friday, the restaurant only had three other diners. The appetizer arrived well after the main courses. The food was nothing exceptional and way over priced for the ambiance and location. Dishes that were $14-16 should have been $9-10. In this location they are competing with really good, far less...

This cozy restaurant serves some of the best Peruvian food I have ever had! The informal atmosphere and friendly service is good, but the food is SUPERB! I recommend the Paella and the local beer, Cusqueno -- a delightful pairing that makes one want to return again and again. If you are hesitant to try this cuisine, don't fear: it... More

We went to this restaurant because I love Peruvian food and this place had very high online recommendations. It did not disappoint. If anything the food was better than our high expectations. While the restaurant is small and homey and a bit off the beaten path, it is certainly worth a visit. Not only was the food fresh and fantastic... More

Sazon's proprietor roams from table to table of this intimate little restaurant ensuring you're having the best experience while enjoying his family's remarkable cuisine. Located in an unassuming, 4-store strip mall right off the road, Sazon is one of those 'finds' that gives you hope that the family restaurant is alive and well in California. The atmosphere is good.

I knew that after our empanadas, tacos de pescado, and sudado pescado a couple of weeks ago we would have to return. The turnovers with chicken, the diced tilapia on the tacos and fish stew (also tilapia) were excellent. In this fish stew, a lunch specialty, both potatoes and rice were featured. I knew we were dealing with authentic Peruvian... More

Great food, especially the ceviche and the fried sweet plantains. Also the interesting punch made with corn. The place is small so best to make a reservation

We went on a Saturday night. The restaurant is very small and it was too cold to eat at the outside tables. (The restaurant is in a location where eating outside in the parking lot is not that attractive.) Reservations are a MUST. The food was wonderful and the staff extremely nice and friendly. I had a traditional pork stew... More
