I love this place. Have been coming here for years. The drinks are great and the food is always on point. You might have to wait for a table, but it's well worth it. This place is always packed.

We love their roast chicken with green rice so much that we almost never order anything else! Nice selection of drinks. Sometimes a long line but definitely worth the wait.

We sometimes forget that the Chinese have travelled all over the world and have influenced the cultures not just of north America and Europe, but of many countries. Here we see how that Chinese Peruvian style is manifested in the food. The meals are solid and delicious. The seating is a little bit tight but acceptable. The menu is divided... More

I've tasted the Rotiserie Chicken w/ fried Rice and their Papa a la Arequipeña and it was delicious!! I've also tried their Lomo Saltado (Best I've ever had) and their Aguadito (very tasty). The Sangria has a good balance of fruit and wine so it has become my favorite. I've tried both Flor De Mayo restaurants in New York, on... More

This Chinese-Peruvian is a great value for the money. I've been going here for 20 years and have never had a bad meal. Truthfully, I've never tried any of the Chinese dishes, only the Peruvian. There is a wide selection of Latin foods, all the regulars, plus a nice group of Peruvian specialties. One of the best things here is... More

Lomo Salteado is all I have to say! It is the bomb and keeps me coming back! There maduros are great. The wait to get in at times is annoying and their drinks are VERY strong.

I truly love Flor de Mayo and I've gone there many times. However, it tends to be too crowded for my taste. If you're planning to go there for dinner, I would suggest to make it an early one to avoid a long wait.

This Peruvian Chinese restaurant has some nice and tasty Peruvian food, but the Chinese dishes lack in taste and quality. The meat in my chicken chow fun was so hard and dry, I had to give up on it, but the Peruvian Half a Chicken was so yummy and juicy, it didn't even feel like food from the same restaurant.

We have been going to Flor for years back to the days when it was cuban/Chinese food. It is now Peruvian/Chinese with some of the Cuban old favorites. We went here looking for some interesting Peruvian food but other than ceviche, there was not much resembling the delicious vegetarian food we had in Peru. However, their cuban food: ropa vieja,...

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
