Awesome family Peruvian restaurant. We went there for the 1st time to celebrate Oleg's 18 birthday and the whole family was very pleased. It was very reasonably priced too.

We're from Minnesota and just visiting for the week. Want to try a bunch of things. They made us feel pleasantly welcome but didn't hover. Asked if it was our first time and gave a brief explanation. Food was super delish.
