This restaurant is easily one of my favorites around the area. Their staff is very friendly and quick to get you taken care of. Their food is also very delicious, I have tried a different dish almost every time I've gone in and have loved every dish. I recommend this restaurant to my family, friends, and coworkers all the time.

What a delicious lunch! The chicken was perfect and generously portioned, the vegetables were fresh and prepared with care, and the sauces were very tasty. Best Peruvian restaurant around and I have tried them all. Also served beautifully by friendly staff! Picture is the half I did not eat (yet!)

I'm Ecuadorian and this reminds me of the "pollos a la brasa" from back home. As a result, I've now come here twice (including with family). Nails the flavor, tenderness, and portions. It's also around the corner from Poppy Salon, so a good husband hack if you need to wait. The chicken is tasty here and prices are reasonable. Other options in the area have become somewhat overpriced (or perhaps shrinkflated?), so it's good that these guys pair flavor with value and friendly service. I would also try out some of the Peruvian dishes on the menu.

Excited that this place finally opened! The food was pretty good. The chicken was well seasoned and cooked. The rice was good, but the potatoes were a bit cold. The sauce they have is excellent. The green is spicy and the other one tastes like curry a bit. The owner was working when we got there. I think they’re still figuring out their workflow, where to order and where to pay. They’ll sort it out, so have a bit of grace. All in all, solid and I’ll definitely be working it into my lunch routine.

I've been wanting to stop for quite some time and tonight was finally the night. I chose the Pollo Ever with the green rice and beans and the house salad. Everything was delicious and smelled amazing on the ride home. I picked up a container of the Alfajores to share with some of my employees. They may not make it to work. Everyone was eager to help and the inside of the restaurant was very clean and fresh. Very affordable for the portion size as well.

My husband had a burger and it was SO good! Perfect and simple yet full of flavor, just the way a burger should be. I had Lomo Soltado- steak and rice. A little on the salty side but without being overdone. Both were cooked to perfection!

This is the 2nd time I’ve been here, both times the food was very good. Finally, a reasonably priced good food restaurant. Today, I had the casacada salad, 5 large shrimp and a whole lot of chicken topping of a healthy sized green salad. I mixed the salad dressing and their green sauce, wow that was delicious! Give them a try, you won’t be disappointed!

Great Peruvian food- chicken was delicious and they have great options for sides! Yuca, fried rice, green beans and the traditional potato dish (papas a la huancaína) were delicious!

Omg, this chicken is phenomenal. The family meal was actually enough to really feed a family. The service was fabulous. Very clean and roomy dinning room.
