“Rotisserie Chicken isn't the highlight...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

I had dinner here based on the reviews on TA... The restaurant is in the middle of strip malls and big box stores.
The staff was very nice and accommodating. I relied on them quite a bit for recommendations and they were spot on.
The tamal was excellent as an appetizer and the Crema Vultageo (peruvian flan with light caramel syrup) was also tasty.
The chicken though... was quite ordinary... It was as good as what you'll get at Swiss Chalet. I would the chicken would have been coated/marinated in some unique spices from Peru, but no. The yucca fries were a nice change from regular potato fries.
If you go, you can skip the chicken and try some of the other dishes here.

“Great Food Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

I had chicken with Cassava (sp?) fries with thinly sliced sausage over the fries. The fries were different than regular French Fries- very good. The chicken was great and the service very attentive and personal. Great value at this restaurant- make reservations

“Pleasantly surprised”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

From the looms of the interior when we walked in, we did not expect much. It's like a cafeteria styled restaurant, which does not suit the type of food Pio Perevian serves.

The ceviche was refreshing, beef entree is to die for, and finished with the donut dessert (crispy donut drizzled in some caramel sauce).

“Nice family style with a twist”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014 via mobile

I had dinner there while travelling for work. The Lomo Saltado was very tasty, spiced just right for me. I had Flan for dessert (there was a Peruvian name) which was delicious. I think all of the desserts are made there and aren't things you would get easily elsewhere.

“Great Food. Friendly not fussy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2014 via mobile

Stopped by after closing a deal with a new partner. A business lunch that turned into what is now our go to spot to eat and discuss. For sure will take clients here too.
Friendly service. Quick and not pushy. Great food. They have a liquour license now too.
Just amazing fresh food. Best fries in the city.
