Our hotel had reccomended we should try Maido which was just around the corner but having read some great reviews, I stubbornly insisted that we should go to Osaka instead (which was a fine dining experience too but not quite as spectacular as Maido). The next day however, I submitted and by god was this the right thing to do! So good we ate there twice and would have been there a lot more had we not got a plane home! The service was really wonderful, our waitress spoke fluent English and enlightened us somewhat as to what was what on the menu. Every morsel was a surprise, a revelation, a feast ! I'd go back to Peru just to it there again...My favourite food experience in the world!

This place is a must if you go to Lima. It is on the pricier end for sushi places, but it is definitely worth it. Every dish is a winner, and they are always experimenting with new combinations. The Maido rolls are fantastic.
The service was excellent as well. We were a party of 14 but even everything went without a hitch.

By far such a great experience! Beware that they don't open until 730. However, it's worth it if you get hungry early. Their scallops dish is the winner of the entire menu. It comes out in 5 different shells on fire and each one is just as good as the next. The seafood is so fresh and they do a great job on the play on flavors. Coming from the east coast of USA there isn't a place that is quite like this. The service is great and each person is so appreciative of your comments. Not the typical American sushi menu, but honestly don't hesitate on what you're not familiar with. It's worth the surprise! 5 stars by far and totally worth it. I would have expected to pay $250 for our dinner but it ended up being $130 total, which includes an entire bottle of wine.
