“Folkloric dancing, great atmosphere, and an awesome night”
Reviewed August 13, 2010

Sachun's is a wonderful Peruvian experience, and although the food is sufficiently good (not wonderful or absolutely delicious), the dancing and show is second to none. Sachun's is similar to Brisas del Titicaca in Lima, Peru, primarily being composed of the dancing show with food. The dances are traditional from different parts of Peru and you will see a wide variety during the show. Although everyone has different opinions, I have been to both and much prefer Sachun's. I will not be back to Brisas.

The show at Sachun's is almost identical, but the stage is smaller and it is easier to follow the dances so that you get to see and understand the dances much better than at Brisas; at Brisas, the stage is much larger and it is fairly difficult to follow and understand each dance since there is so much going on. It is almost as if Brisas wants to "wow" you with so much at once, which isn't good to really see the cultural side of Peruvian dancing.

Sachun's is also a better value, getting your entrance fee, dinner, two free drinks (beer or pisco sour and then a soda or water), appetizer and entre for 45 soles (while 45 soles is the price for only entrance at Brisas). At Brisas, the show varies from night to night and they do not always show their complete show. If you ask at Brisas, they will say "yes, it is our regular show, you will see ALL of the dances." Well, that's not true. After the night, we spoke with the manager who didn't care to listen to our concerns. We emphasized that we will "only be going to Sachun's" and he dismissed us like that night's garbage.

Also, Sachun's accepts reservations and you can get the best table in the house with advanced reservation. You do not come to Sachun's for the food or service, but if you are visiting Lima I would highly recommend you stop by this restaurant and show for a rich, cultural experience in Peruvian dancing.
