The buildings these restaurants are located in are very unassuming, but don't let that fool you. The chicken is very juicy and literally falls off the bone. Flavor for days as well. Also, they are conscious of where they source their chicken and you don't have to deal with beefed up bird hormones in your body. Must go to restaurant... More

I finally got down to Mami Nora's for a take-out lunch today, and it was wonderful. My order: A Large Dark (chicken leg and thigh) with white rice and black beans. The chicken was tender, juicy, and flavorful. The rice and beans were also very good. I'm not sure what spices were used because I'm not familiar with Peruvian cuisine,... More

This review is for the Cary location - I have to say that the sides we chose were all excelent. The Chicken however was too spicy, too much black pepper. I have been to other Peruvian restaurants that do not load their chicken with a rub, If you are in New York, go to the restaurant called Pio Pio. What... More

A friend who works close to this restaurant recommended we eat here. A packed parking lot and good smells coming from the restaurnat was a good sign. Casual atmosphere and you order as you enter the restaurant. Prices are good and you get a good portion of food. Smokey flavored chicken was really good. Black beans were tasty (they put... More

Very expensive; I should have noted that there were only two diners there.I only chose this place in mistaken haste--but I shan't in the future.

Mami Nora's chicken is the BEST. I am using both the Durham as well as the Raleigh location (for business lunches) and have always enjoyed it. In addition to the regular chicken and all the lovely side, I can also recommend the Arroz Chaufa, Peruvian fried rice, the best fried rice you can get, with chicken, sausage, egg, cilantro...

Bottom line; excellent food, large portions, good value for the money. Places like this make me really happy that Trip Advisor exists - otherwise we never would have known it was here. Traveling north on I-85, it's an easy stop. Open 11a 9-p Wednesday - Monday (closed Tuesday ). Very tasty Peruvian style chicken baked in traditional oven. My husband... More

One of the best value for a healthy homestyle meal in town. This is not a hoity toity hang out, just a simple establishment with awesome food. Always consistent quality. I love this place.

I enjoyed the roasted chicken--very good flavor on the skin, though post-meal, I still taste the salt. (I don't use much salt at home.) Despite the salt, the meat was very tender. The yucca fries were okay, nothing to compare them to since I'd never had yucca fries before. The sweet plantains were very yummy! (They reminded me a little... More

This place is a God send for me. Not only is just delicious, but I have been on a very strict diet to heal a chronic autoimmune disease for about 6 months and it makes it impossible to eat out. The food here was healthy, simple, and the things I ordered were free of grains, gluten, dairy, sugar, soy, nuts,... More
