This small, unassuming restaurant serves amazing food! They offer a wide range of Peruvian dishes, many with seafood. We had the Peruvian tamales that were much better than the Mexican style, very moist and succulent. Their Paella is truly some of the best I've ever had. We also had Bistec Apanado, which is marinated beef served like a casserole with... More

I'm originally from Peru so I am familiar with the different dishes that Peruvian food has to offer. I have to say that my husband and I started with an appetizer of anticuchos and yucas and they tasted so good you definitely don't want to miss them but their Lomo Saltado is amazing. Very well cooked and the taste was... More

I was in Peru and this is really an authentic Peruvian restaurant. Amazing food and service. The tiradito is delicious. We get tiradito, crevice, empanadas and Arroz con mariscos

Taste of Peru is a family-owned restaurant with a lot of flavor and a lot of heart. Everything from the menu, to the decorations, to even the "No Chilean Pisco" sign at the entrance creates a warm atmosphere. While many restaurants have some sort of description regarding their humble origins, the one for Taste of Peru really comes to life... More

This was a great find by my son and I. It's a very unassuming restaurant in a strip mall but worth the trip. It's very reasonable and BYO liquor. Can't wait to go back.

We lived in Lima for 15 years and our family is fond of Peruvian food. The restaurant is so typical of small family Peruvian restaurant. We went overboard - ordering Ceviche de Pescado, Empanada de Carne, Papa Rellena and Anticucho de Corazon de Res. For segundos we ordered Aji de Gallina, Lomo Saltado, Jalea, Tallarines Verdes con Bistec, and Chupe... More

FANTASTIC FOOD! Large and flavorful servings. They have given me undercooked chicken on two different occasions, but the food is so good its worth the risk. Salmonella be damned.
