    I've been coming here for 9 years hundreds of visits. The food is always amazing. The wait can be long but worth it. True Peruvian food for NYC tastes.

    Love Chimu, can't wait to go back for more steak. Grilled skirt steak with rice and beans is a must try. Chicken and steak empanadas are crack. Drinks are on point too.

    Not as good as I thought it would be, and kind of on the pricier side for the taste/quality.

    Their arroz chaufa is really good & authentic. The classic pisco is better than the flavored versions.

    Food is good, great flavor. In my opinion the ceviche is totally overpriced. Service is bad, should worry about improving points of service. Space is very small and when crowded uncomfortable.

    The most authentic tasting Peruvian spot I've been to that's still open (La Mar took the crown). The Chupe and Jalea are on point here. Just wish they removed their bathroom scented air freshener.

    If you have time to wait and just enjoy company, I can see the appeal. Service was lacking and it wasn't busy. Food was delicious and the wine selection is reasonably delicious.

    If you're a meat lover. Get the Grill cuts for 2 and it will suffice. The rib steak is so good and the white sausage is delicious too. The mussels apetizers were good and portions are huge!

    Didn't love it. My friend said it used to be awesome but the food is pretty pedestrian and uninteresting. The staff is very friendly though...nice folks, but there are better food choices around.

    Perfect dinner here: fried calamari, skirt steak with basil spaghetti, sangria, tiramusu. It's completely worth the long (Saturday night) wait. The service is great too. I'm going back soon.

    The bistec is good. The bistec tallarin (over pesto pasta) is ok.the pasat needs flavor (salt). Ask for chimichurri sauce on the side.

    Been here thrice now. Get the Tallarin Verde Con Bistec (its basil pasta with Spanish cheese and a grilled skirt steak). Its heavy as hell, you will be full. You will enjoy.
