I chose this restaurant because I read about the cleanliness standards of Sr Gaston. As a typical gringo, I try not to eat the street food too much. I am somewhat nervous about getting sick, as it has happened to me in almost every country I have visited. So, Chi-Cha is a place that everyone says is the cleanest in the entire country.
My wife and I had two typical peruvian dishes, and shared both. I found that the food was wonderful. The service was excellent, but as some other reviews have stated, it appeared that there were too many servers. The floor was very crowded.
I found that the ambiance changed significantly, based on the crowd. At the beginning of our meal, the place was filled with mostly older people. By the end of the meal, the pisco sours were flowing and the vibe was completely different.
As the week went on, I because more adventurous and tried other peruvian dishes at other restaurants (those of lower quality.) I didn't get sick. The food was almost as good. The prices were significantly lower.
All in all, a great warm-up and a great experience.
