“Reasonable but certainly not authentic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Maybe I'm too used to the "real deal" in the Hartford, CT area that influenced my being less than satisfied with Sabor Latino. Instead of the traditional corn kernels and green sauce usually served, tortilla chips and salsa graced the table. I assume that is from the Mexican side of the menu but when I asked about the kernels, the waitress had no idea what I was talking about. Expansive menu but the Lomo Saltaldo (a staple dish), grilled chicken and rice/seafood fell short. Not much by the way of seafood, the Lomo Saltaldo swam in a soy based sauce and the chicken lacked the smokey taste so common in better preparation. Staff was pleasant, prices reasonable. Restaurant itself is basic and non-descript. Would I return if again in the Homewood area - only if I was desperate for a taste of Peruvian fare.

“Good food, good price, good people.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Many Mexican restaurants are very similar, most I have visited offer good to very good fare, so this is not unique. Sabor Latino is a bit diffierent... a Peruvian/Mexican restaurant. The owners and staff are friendly, the food is good, the surroundings are low key, which has a great appeal to me. If you are looking for a 5 star restaurant, don't go. If you are looking for good "south of the border" food, this is your place!

“Where else can you get Peruvian cuisine in Birmingham??”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

Great menu, but go with the Peruvian pages. Excellent service and drink specials. The Peruvian tamales are define, but offered on weekends - the last time we went was on Monday, so we were able to snag a couple.
