It may be a diamond in the rough, but the food is very good. I've been going to this restaurant for many many years. I visited NYC yesterday, and dropped by Flor de Mayo for dinner with relatives. Delicious! Generous portions and very tasty.

I go to New york at least once a year and this is a must do for me while in the city. They have a signature drink called the nutcracker that is so good and strong that I could only have one. The staff at the restaurant are friendly and knowledgable of the menu. Everything on the menu is excellent!!!

Phenomenal food quality across the board for fair price in NY city. Their wonton soup is off the hook with freshly made wontons. The Peruvian dishes (Ceviche, Tallarin (pasta) con Camrones (shrimp) & Lomo Saltado) are all excellent. At the top of my list for visitors to NY looking for excellent food at great prices.

Well priced and consistently high quality on the Chinese and Peruvian dishes. We tend to prefer the Peruvian and recommend the ceviche, the tallarin saltado and lomo saltado. Location on the west side is also very convenient.

A friend recommended Flor De Mayo, which is an interesting restaurant serving both Chinese and Peruvian food. Having never tried Peruvian cuisine, I ordered the barbecued chicken with green rice. The rice was colored green with fresh cilantro, and the barbecued chicken was excellent with fresh herbs and vegetables. Prices were reasonable and the atmosphere was nothing special, but reflected... More

Usually eat at the other location. Tried this with a friend and 2 children. The kids loved the chichi papa (French fries and hot dogs- is that how you spell it?). My friend had some type of seafood soup and loved it. The fried rice was disgusting. It was sticky and wet. Also, I felt it was kind of pricey... More

In an area that has become so gentrified that you can no longer get into a restaurant on Saturday or Sunday mornings for breakfast/brunch and where the average dinner bill has skyrocketed, this pleasant little place delivers on good food and huge portions at very reasonable prices. They offer Chinese/Spanish cuisine with an additional emphasis on Peruvian dishes. Several choices... More
