I wasn't familiar with Peruvian food, but decided to give it a go on a recent trip to Raleigh after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. I'm glad I did. My friend and I ordered the appetizer platter (pictured in your photo) so we could experience as many new tastes as possible. The server took the time to describe each item... More

Don't be deceived by the nondescript surroundings, this is a dining experience you do not want to miss. I ordered the Pescado a la Chorrillana, a fried fish fillet in the most delicious sauce, with tomatoes, rice and potatoes that were crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Everything on the plate gets infused in this citrusy cilantro... More

I was just browsing restaurants and I saw this one. A Peruvian restaurant, I mean come on, that's pretty interesting. Always willing to try new things, I headed on down. It's a pretty nondecirpt kind of place in a strip mall. The atmosphere is plain, but clean and inviting. The service was great. Since I had never been to a... More

Exceptional! Who knew that in Raleigh, NC, I would find the best ceviche I have ever tasted in the USA. I also had the Chupe, Aji de Gallina, and Jalea to boot. A true culinary experience as all dishes were superb. And if you want a WoW experience to finish off the meal, you must try the Quinoa Almondine Ice... More

Four of us recently ate at this gem hidden in a strip mall in North Raleigh. All fans of Mexican food, we figured this would be close. It was SO much better! Started with Ceviche - mixed variety. Never having had it, I was pleasantly surprised by the tenderness and acidity that was not too overwhelming. (If you don't like... More

It was so good we got a gift certificate so our son and his wife could go there on their 1 st wedding anniversary.... More

We took our son & his girlfriend here since they'd never had Peruvian food. We had eater here once before and had very impressed. Service was helpful and patient. After snacking on the dried corn that's set out on the table, we ordered an appetizer: fried yucca with Huancaina Sauce (creamy, spicy, luscious). She tried the Mexican Coca-Cola with cane... More
