We just had lunch at Sardi's and enjoyed our choices....whole chicken, plantains, yuca and black beans with rice. I've been to a few of the pruvian restaurants in this area and I like this one best. Parking can be a little tricky tho...not a large lot.

My first meal in USA was here. I got takeaway, quarter chicken with fried yuca and rice/black beans for almost $10. Service is fast, I was in and out in no more than 5 minutes, and i got 3 sauces and the portion was absolutely mammoth. Never tried peruvian before and thought heck, why not for the first time. Fried... More

The place looks ok from the outside but it is ugly inside. the food is just regular, prices are average. I haven't found a good Peruvian restaurant in the area yet.

This is a very casual, usually busy place to get a good chicken dinner for a very reasonable price. We almost always order the 1/2 chicken which comes with two sides of your choice. There are a number to choose from: the green beans and roasted potatoes are our usual picks. Sometimes we will order a third side of rice... More

Many tasty food options. Loved the chicken. Vegetables were "just right. Our whole family had a great time sharing our meal. We will definitely return the next time we are in Gaithersburg.

Recently, my husband took it upon himself to get dinner for the family and mentioned Sardi's. I went to their website and HAD to have fried yucca [forget French fries!] and rice & beans as my sides along with the 1/4 chicken. OH. MY. GAWD! Talk about delicious, tasty chicken! It was tender and very delicious! Something about the seasonings... More

To start off, the only bad thing I can say about Sardi's is that I live 4 1/2 hours away from it. Anytime I'm in Gaithersburg on business it's hard for me to think of anything but dinner/lunch at Sardi's later that day. I love their chicken, super moist and flavorful. Sweet plantains are my favorite side followed by their... More

Dinner at Sardi's, have never been but it was well worth it. Chicken well done, great seasoning and moist. Sides were excellent. The only issue is they are a little skimpy on the sauces.

This place was nothing short of amazing! I am from the north and had never heard of this chain (and I still can't believe it's a chain!!!!). While visiting friends this is the first place they took me, and man am I glad they did. But sad too Bc I've never seen these in NJ. Peruvian chicken on a spit... More
