Excellent, excellent food. Best cerviche I've ever had by a distance. World class Pisco sours !! Great attention to detail and flavour making for a really enjoyable meal and all at a price that leaves room for more Pisco sours.

We were put in the vault which meant we missed out on the whole ambience bit of eating out, and tbh most but not all of the staff forgot about us. Or that’s how it felt. Still, food amazing as ever and when we were attended to, all was great life.

We went as a family for a special Sunday lunch. Everything was as good as my previous visit, just that a table of two were seated beside us when there were plenty of empty tables available as it was 3pm. But otherwise a great lunch.

Just stunning food. I had no idea what it would be like as I've never eaten Peruvian food before. Staff really knowledgeable and friendly and explained all the dishes to my friend and I... and their recommendations were beautiful. Stunning presentation of food..

Outstanding food both aesthetically and taste-wise. The flavours are familiar but with a different twist which made them tastes like no other place. I wish they put more or the coriander sauce on the lamb. It was phenomenal. Decent portions even though it seems small at first glance.

All the staffs are also lovely and welcoming which adds the pleasantry on the experience.

Had to wait for pre-booked table (about 40 minutes) service was a little sporadic at times. Very noisy in the restaurant , difficult to hear conversation

Fantastic food really loved the menu and a good choice for my other half being vegetarian. Booked here following a great review in a national newspaper didn’t disappoint. Only negative was we were sitting very near the entrance on a cold night and so we got very cold towards the end of the visit.

An outstanding Christmas menu lunch today with top class Nikkei-style Peruvian food as good as I ever had when staying for a long period in Lima. Brilliantly and skilfully executed food, with zingy fresh flavours and textures. The presentation was an artform. The staff were relaxed, welcoming and the space was tastefully decorated and moreover, casual and comfortable. The front of house staff were mindful of COVID too.
Altogether, a fantastic experience it will be great to repeat, hopefully taking the rest of the family next time!

Been here before, really good food, amazing drinks and great customer service. This time I booked trough OpenTable and it seems that just the Christmas menu and the Testing menu were available. Decided to try the Testing one, it was really good but not satisfying enough compared to the price, really small portions and as every dish comes with sauces and creams(really tasty) I would suggest some extra bread with it, so nothing get wasted. Overall a bit overpriced but Other than this it was a really good experience as usual.

Having lived in Peru for some years and enjoyed the cuisine we were uncertain how the meal, on a special anniversary, would turn out.
A wayward taxi driver landed us late on the door-stop but from then on all was positive. The fusion of Peruvian with Japanese cuisine was memorable and we only wish we could locate some of the ingredients that our hosts had tracked down to try to emulate the dishes.
A good Pisco sour kicked off the meal and the winelist was interesting with a Uruguayan white memorable but the food was exquisite. Service was not rushed - Latin American paced - but with good explanations of the dishes .
We will return.
