We had a lovely Sunday lunch at Tierra Peru. It was a buffet, which we didn’t expect, however the food was fresh and delicious. Service was excellent and very personable. We will be back.

WE had a lovely lunch on Saturday, as we were mostly new to Peruvian food we went with the Fish and meat sharing platters, there was nothing disappointing, i also recommend the Peru Red Wine it was worth the extra money.

Tierra Peru is a hidden gem in Essex Road - nothing fussy, just good, honest Peruvian food done right. The staff are very friendly, and the food tastes excellent, an authentic taste of dishes I've eaten in Lima. This is not fine-dining, but it doesn't need to be - it's just a tasty, fun evening out.

Wonderful service - lovely warm, friendly staff, fab Pisco sours & great food. Seems to be run by a Peruvian family - they brought back memories of our trip 10yrs ago! You have to go here!

With a forthcoming trip to Peru we thought we should try out a local Peruvian restaurant to see what we might expect. We were delighted by the experience at Tierra Peru. From the enthusiastic welcome through to the Coca Spirit on departure we found the environment and the food to be excellent. The staff are attentive, enthusiastic, and helped explain the menu and the origin of the dishes. We started with some great Pisco Sours. The starters were quite large - nicely flavoured ceviche, the tamalito de pollo was new to us and enjoyable and the Anticuchos were enjoyed by our children. The mains were excellent - and substantial - and we recommend the Chicharron and the Cordero Huanuqueno. Desert- if you like chocolate then try the chocolate and Pisco mousse. Overall we must have spent nearly three hours there and the time flew. An enjoyable evening and we will certainly be back.

Great food ! We love the presentation of the dishes. The flavour is amazing .
This time we had to wait longer than we expected to be served.
2 waiters for the whole place on Saturday it is not enough .
They need to improve the service ,but again we will be back because of the food.

We booked a table for two at 8:15pm. We arrived on time but they said that were busy and told us to come back after 20 min. After that we had to wait another 10 minutes to be seated. We did the orders and asked for a Chicha Morada which was very good but a bit expensive. Everything was fine until it seemed they forgot our order 'cause we waited like 40 minutes! I went to the bar to ask for our dishes. They said it would take some minutes more. More than 40min? I was a bit annoyed But at the end it arrived! The anticucho was amazing i must say. The ceviche very good. even though the ceviche mixto needed to be chopped in smaller pieces. Before asking for the bill the owner came to our table and said that they was going to give us 2 pisco sour as compensation for the long wait.

My final review is that the food is good. The prices a bit expensive. Service is ok. But they need to be more organise and manage their times better.

The food at Tierra Peru was excellent with large portions and well priced. We loved the bento box option as it allowed us to sample a couple of different dishes, but word of warning, the servings are very large and we were not able to finish everything. We will be visiting again.

Another visit to a place that has really stepped up over the last year or two since the new owners came in. Excellent food and something a bit different in the neighbourhood. Try to get a table away from the door if going in winter.

My only disappointment was that I had no room for pudding! Vegetarian chevice to start, baked sweet potato and the dish with sundries potatoes, all delicious. My meat and fish eating friends were equally impressed. I've eaten in other London Peruvian restaurants but nothing compares to the delights of Tierra Peru.
