    Hands down, the best Peruvian Chicken in the city! Get the Matador Combo if you're really hungry or are with a couple of friends: one whole chicken, rice, beans, tostones, salchipapa, & avocado salad.

    Rotisserie chicken with saffron rice are to die for. Mixed the green sauce with garlic sauce and cried myself to sleep. So gooodd. Fast delivery if you order early. Large portions. Do it. Just do it.

    The lunch special is such a great deal! Definitely get the chicken leg - the meat is so tender it practically falls off of the bones.

    Try the $10 lunch special - Peruvian Chicken with fried plantains, a salad, and a drink. Of course, you won't want to leave without trying their tasty, strong sangria either.

    One matador entree is enough for the people easily! Very good food, almost like a family bbq

    The avocado salad and the Juanita's chicken are a powerfully delicious combination. But don't get the combos because its cheaper to buy each dish individually.

    Everything is wrong here. Everything. Except the food, which is delicious. And the company, if you're lucky like I am. :)

    Rotisserie chicken was awesome! Sangria was good but a bit sweet for me. I didn't think the restaurant was as polished as it actually was. A little shocking!

    $12 for a whole chicken is such good value. Green sauce is key, but the chicken is so juicy that sauce is pretty unnecessary.

    The sangria is so so, the mozzarella tastes like salted plastic, the chicken is a roasted chicken you can find in any French rotisserie. Portion are quite big, American size.

    The atmosphere isn’t as good as the Hell’s Kitchen location, but the lomo saltado is just as delicious.

    The ceviche was alright, but when you come here, it's all about the pollo a la brasa.

    The rotisserie chicken is so moist it's unbelievable. I've never had a better chicken breast.

    Green sauce is great. The matador combo is good for 2-3, if you have a few eaters go for a seafood platter too.

    Chicken is the specialty here. Don't bother with any other type of meat. Chicken empanadas are a delight. The ceviches are a big disappointment for a Peruvian restaurant, very bland.

    Ask for about a gallon of green sauce to go with your chicken. So delicious!

    Ask for the creamy, spicy green sauce. Then ask for even more green sauce.

    Very delicious chicken but definitely not a big portion. Order twice of what you would usually get.

    This place has some amazin' chicken. Order the Chicken Pio, or if you're really hungry, order the Peruvian Combo!

    I've heard the green sauce is made of the same ingredients as crack cocaine. I don't doubt it - seriously addictive.
