I went this week and had the Peruvian cerviche. It was delicious and unlike any other I have tried in the past. Portions are generous and service is very good

Love this place - food excellent! The green sauce - aji verde - makes this chicken out of this world. It's a must go spot for Peruvian food.

When they opened the food was delicious and with excellent prices, now it is a little expensive and it can be a pain to get in. I heard terrible stories about this place not being so clean in the kitchen. The positive side is that you can spend a good time here with friends and family.

The wait it long and the food is just ok. If you drive, forget it, parking is HORRIBLE. The wait staff is not so friendly. Take out has been a bit better although their portions have drastically decreased as of late. Yes, I am a bit disappointed in a spot that used to be one of my favorites due to... More

My favorite place for sangria its one of the best I've tasted in NY beside the chicken. They have an amazing green sauce that goes well with the chicken.
