The place is nice and well decorated. Kind of rustic. It is a zero service place: you chose out of the menu and receive a number. Keep costs down, I guess. I had a small salad (something from Costco), a juicy chicken empanada, a basket with my "lomo Saltado" sandwich and crunchy fries and one "churro" for dessert. For the... More

The wife and I had an afternoon without the kids, so we went someplace new. We had no idea what to expect, or even what to order. On the recommendation of the lady taking our order, we got the Butifarra and Slow Roasted Chicken. The Butifarra sandwich had a great flavor that I had never tasted before, and I did... More

We visited this place during Happy hour and were not disappointed. Good food at very reasonable prices. They also have Peruvian beer and the National drink of Peru the Pisco Sour . Try the house special the BUTIFARRA sandwich which is a pepper sliced pork sandwich with spicy mayo. Delicious!

The peruvian street food was the best I'd had since I was in Peru last November. Very inviting atmosphere with outside seating--for Portland summers. inexpensive and delicious. Order at front and they bring your food to you.

My husband was taking a bike repair class at the Bicycle Institute right next door, so we met for lunch here. We had a wonderfully fresh meal, that was unlike any I have had before. The quinoa salad was delicious, for that matter, the whole veggie plate was delicious. Will definitely return to try the empanadas.

For a genuine neighborhood gem of a restaurant with a twist on flavors and preparation, do try this lovely little restaurant on North Williams Ave. The food quality was excellent, preparation tasty and attractive, prices can't be beat and friendly staff make this a fine place to stop for lunch or dinner. I had the lunch special which was grilled... More

This is very good authentic Peruvian street food restaurant. By 8 pm, the place was packed with families and young couples looking for great food as a reasonable price. Big plates, reasonable prices, and friendly staff. What more could you ask for.

Very good food and quick. Lots of different dishes and terrific sandwiches. This is a restaurant that you order at the counter and they bring you the food. We really enjoyed the peruivan style and drinks.

Love, love, love! Had the most amazing meals here! 4 of us ordered and shared, noshed and thoroughly enjoyed! We had all been to Peru on different trips and experienced different cities/cuisines and all agreed this place is a total hit and can NOT understand why the #1 ranked Peruvian restaurant in Portland, Andina, gets the kudos it does (perhaps...
