When I was a kid my parents used to take me there almost everyday for lunch time. I don't recall ever having a complain about the food when I was a kid. The food was always delicious.

Last week I decided to go for lunch. They remodeled the place really nice and it looks a lot better than what it was before.

My food experience was the worst I had in Bolivia. I had tastier food in the local market for far less than what they charge. To me price is not an issue as long as the food is delicious. The entry was cold and the vegetables didn't taste fresh. The soup was salty and warm not hot like it should be. The main dish from what it looked it was a dish called "Chorrellana" a dish made with white rice and steak covered with saute onions and tomatoes. As soon as I got my plate the first thing I smelled was the smell of raw meet. My meet was fully cooked but that smell was very strong and was coming from my dish. The dessert was the only descent food I tried. It was chirimoya ice cream. Although it was the best dish from my visit it wasn't perfect.

Service - The service was very bad. The lady that served my food brought my dishes too early. My food got cold while I was still eating.

Would I ever go back to Nayjama again? I doubt it, although I had great times when I was a kid, I felt really disappointed at the service and the food. I tried other restaurants nearby and the food was way better than Nayjama and the price was less than as well.

I hope they get their act together and hire a new chef or bring back the old chef that used to cooked in the 90s. Back then I would've given then a 5 star rate!

The portions are huge, so do not take one for each person. They are super quick if you are in a hurry to take the train.

The food was super good. I recommend the quinua pie. They have many gluten free options. The prices are good also.

We had a somewhat early dinner here and the food was very good. One suggestion, stay away from the fried fish as it was very oily and tasted more of batter and oil than fish, otherwise the dishes were spectacular and the lamb was especially good.

Stopped here for lunch with my husband before we hopped on the train to Uyuni. Thought as it was #1 on trip advisor for the city, we couldn't really go wrong.
Prior to receiving our meals we were given some stale bread, served by the hands of the waitress, accompanied by salsa.
We ordered a lamb dish and a pasta dish- Google translate really didn't help me with my lamb dish as it ended up being a plate full of kidneys (my fault entirely, but very unpleasant... I couldn't touch any of mine). The kidneys were accompanied by plain rice and half-mashed and then rolled into a ball potato and a side salad/vegetables (didn't touch any of this either). My husband's dish was supposed to be linguini with vegetables. It was actually half a packet of spaghetti with some vegetables and Parmesan on the top. It was so dry, he only had two mouthfuls and we left.
The highlight was the Pepsi (which we had to ask for twice) and the toilets were clean and had soap, water and paper towels.
Definitely give this one a miss!!!
