Peruvian Chicken at its finest!

This place does NOT mess around with its food!! Everything on the menu is always so delicious and fresh!! The plantains are AMAZING!! And the white rice is REAL spanish rice done right! The chicken is always so full of flavor and the prices are decent too.

My son suggested we go here for lunch and let's say I'm happy I listened to him. It's a place you can order your food from a simple menu with delicious tasting food. I ordered the chicken breast/ wing combo with rice and black beans. The chicken was so YUMMMYYY!!!!! It was seasoned just right. It was an average price... More

This place never disappoints. There are now 2 locations in Raleigh! We visited the new one and were pleased that all of our favorites were still in tact. They're known for their mouth watering chicken, but be adventurous and try other signature dishes like the pollo saltado or arroz chaufa. You won't be disappointed!

This restaurant is both authentic and delicious. The food is unmatched in the area. Outstanding chicken, pollo saltado and arroz chaufa. Highly highly highly recommend eating there at least once.

Mami Nora's menu has its roots in Peru. Now, I had traveled to Lima several times on business but never truly got to experience the great cuisine. This was unfortunate. About 10 years ago I was in New Jersey for several weeks and drove in to Paterson a half-dozen times and enjoyed great Peruvian food. [We understand that Paterson has... More

Mami Noras restaurant must be the hardest restaurant in Raleigh to live or work near---the wonderful smells of the delicious roasting chicken would drive you insane all day long!! I can't get enough of the food here. A great place for lunch or a quick dinner, Mami Noras gets packed fast at meal times so come a little early if... More

Another local spot Mami Nora's has what I would consider the top 1 or 2 places i've ever had Peruvian chicken or lomo saltado. The moment you enter the restaurant you instantly smell the chicken being cooked over the coal.

I'm a new comer to the Raleigh dining scene, and Mami Nora's made a great first impression. This Peruvian chicken place has some of the best Peruvian chicken I've ever had. The chicken is moist and soooo flavorful! The sides are also great, especially the ripe plantains (maduros) and the salad was huge, and the cilantro dressing should be sold... More
