The food here was exquisite and the drinks were a close match. The ambiance/decor of the restaurant reflects what I would consider a higher price point of a restaurant. The chicken was some of the best check I've eaten. It was so moist and tasty. The group ate family style, and every dish oredered was superb. The portions are very generous, but try to leave enough room for dessert.

Marvelously moist and flavorful Peruvian-style baked chicken served with choice of side (I chose yellow rice and beans), a Peruvian soda (reminded me of Mountain Dew), and a side avocado & tomato salad for under $10 for lunch. Pics uploaded.

Lots of garlic flavored the chicken.

Will return for a whole chicken to split among friends, and the sangria recommended by others.

Small gripe: Seating is tight, even by NYC standards.

Tip: Don't miss trying the odd looking green sauce with nice kick.

The Chicken is tender & tasty!!! The Matador is overwhelming. Salad is super fresh! Delivery is quick & timely. We order here when we have a lot of people to feed!

My wife and I stopped here for lunch. My wife had a seafood salad for $16 that she was very happy with. I had the lunch special, which was a quarter chicken with a salad and a side for $9. Portions were large and the food was very good.

After we got our food, the waiter never came back to replenish our drinks or ask how everything was. Other than that though, everything else was fine.

Would definitely recommend to stop by for a quick and fairly inexpensive lunch in Manhattan.
