Ordered the saltado camarones and the shrimp were so small you think they would have given you more than like 5. It was all potatoes and rice... hardly any shrimp at all. Not worth $18. I never give bad reviews but I feel I was sort of cheated and only received an order of French fries and rice

We developed a taste for Peruvian food on holiday in Peru; and we make it a point to sample each such restaurant we run across in our US travels. After two visits, this Peruvian gem makes it into the top 3 visited thus far. Although its a small part of a typical OC strip mall, the interior was a comfortable... More

We enjoyed our first visit here. I love Peruvian food. The complimentary rolls are served nice and hot and it's delicious with butter or the spicy green sauce. I liked the chicken chicharones and the lime sipping sauce. My daughter had the Milanese de pollo. Their breading is more crunchy compared to Inka Mama and it needed more seasoning. We... More

If you've eaten Peruvian food before you know that if it isn't fresh it will be bad. This little restaurant has some of the freshest and tastiest Peruvian food around. Love the fact that it's not gourmet but wonderful home style. Family owned, great service, great atmosphere. Special dishes made on weekends. You'll love it!

Decent Peruvian food in pleasant yet casual setting with friendly service. Granted, Peruvian food is not as exciting as Thai or Greek, but if you order the ceviche you wont be disappointed. My fried fish with garlic (pescado al ajo) was OK, and the lomo saltado my colleague had looked better. It will take more visits to get a comprehensive... More

This family owned Peruvian spot is casual, small and no frills, but the food is absolutely outstanding. Dishes are all made lovingly by the patriarch of the family, while mom and son take care of the customers. Start with Ceviche Mixto a lovely seafood salad with perfect tartness. If you're adventurous, try the anticuchos, skewered beef hearts. Absolutely delicious. Our... More

I visited Delicias on a Monday night and ordered the saltado de mariscos. I was very disappointed to see how small the seafood pieces were. The shrimp, calamari, and scallops were all very small like the ones you see in the frozen section of a supermarket. They certainly didn't look fresh. I asked the owner why they were so small...

Delicious and authentic Peruvian dishes! There is a bit of a wait time one the meals but it is well worth it! I've tried the pollo saltado, anticuchos, oregano chicken, and the mariscos dish. All are amazing! Their passion fruit juice goes great with everything! Allow about 35 minute meal prep for pickup.

Having read reviews I thought I would give this hole-in-the-wall type restaurant a go. 6:30. On a Wednesday evening and no other customers, infact I had the restaurant to myself! I tried the paella - a very large (too large) portion, well cooked, but nothing special. I honestly don't know if I'd return. Not a bad experience, just not a... More
