Tried something different but let it down. Friday night restaurant was almost empty. I ordered BBQ for one OMG what a slap on the face. BBQ for cost $28.00 and you will get 1x cheap lamb chump chop, 1x small rib and 25g chicken breast. It was extremely salty, extremely low quality and top $$$. never again.

We thought we would try this restaurant last night as we ended up in Randwick and had never had Peruvian food before. To be honest we were a little worried that when we got there all but one of the tables were full and nobody had food!
Anyway it was the slowest service we have EVER had...The kitchen seemed to only be able to make one meal at a time...We waited for 45 mins to get our entrees and as we were on our way to the airport to pick up our sons we were starting to worry that our mains wouldn't come out fast enough.
I told the waitress at 8.45pm that we needed to be gone by 9.30pm and she said the chef would hurry with the mains......at 9.25 we had to tell them to pack our mains into take away containers as we had to leave and about 10 mins later we had our food and left...
For the price, the food was VERY expensive..we paid about $22-$25 for the mains which they squashed into an average side take away container.
We would never go there again nor would we recommend that restaurant to anyone else!
We only wished we looked at the reviews before going there.

Spend more than one our waiting for the dishes.
Food was not fresh at all, end up cancelling a dish and going to a Thai restaurant afterwards.
On top of all,EXPENSIVE.
