We arrived on a Sunday which is a very popular day for families to go out and eat in groups. It was an early dinner but we still had to wait around 15 minutes to get a table. Once we sat down it didn't take long for our waitress to get our order and have the food brought to us.... More

Love the food here. Their chicken and seafood are both always fresh and cooked perfectly. Their dishes have such flavor. I love their green sauce! That stuff is epic! There are several different locations to choose from depending on where you live.

This is my absolute favorite Peruvian Restaurant. The food comes quick especially during lunch when you are in a hurry. Their lunch menu is ample with plenty to eat and then some. The food is always fresh. The beef or chicken is always moist and tasty. The "green sauce" is made out of crack because it is so addicting. Service... More

Good old style food you will like it make sure Dave to ask your waiter of the questions. About the food before you order it if this your first time you will like it. Highly recommended to take family friends. Multiple locations in the Southbay.

The food was good except the rice was undercooked. I would expect their rice to be consistent and cooked well each time.

This was the perfect place for dinner the night before our early flight out of LAX. I'm pleased to report the GREAT service, and both the chicken specialty and the beef saltada (I had the beef-tomato-pepper-onion with cabbage, but it also comes with green beans or french fries) were excellent, as was the Peruvian beer. Just a few blocks from... More

we loved this restaurant, the portions of food are great and even though is always packed the service doesnt disappoint at all. The rotisserie chicken, ceviche and saltado de lomo are amazing.

I went here for lunch with my family during our trip to California. A soon as we stepped in it took about 5 minutes for them to see us then finally seat us. It wasn't even crowded! Then it took a very long time to actually take our order(never asked about drinks until after we ordered). Then the food came... More
