Often acclaimed as a good Peruvian-Japanese restaurant, yet overrated. There are several Japanese or Peruvian-Japanese restaurants that are far superior. Take Osaka or Toshiro’s just to name two.
The Jasmine tea was from the bag (and a poor bag at that!), the tuna sashimi wasn’t all that fresh and the various rolls and soups are just OK. The service is just OK as well. The whole place looks a bit run down, with sticky chairs and old menu cards. I am sure it must have seen better times.

It's a Japanese - Peruvian resto in which fried food is the main chart of the menu. Maybe this is what I didn't like it... I really don't like fried fish, and almost all entrees were made with a fried ingredient. The vegetables and seafood meal, suggested by the waiter as a light option, came with fried fish!! It was prepared with the wok but the fish was fried!!
Service was not good enough, the waiter didn't know the ingredients of the menu options. If you want a heavy dinner maybe this is a good choice, but if you re looking for a light dinner, maybe you should choose another place.
Sushi was not really creative as they promote...

We were at noon to eat at Hanzo in Surco. We were very disappointed. the rice was much too overcooked, the ramen soup was made with kind of cheap small industrial chinese noodle and salty and the utmost was that we found a small plastic paper inside the soup. Here the pic. Too bad for this kind of restaurant in Lima. No apologize from the service nor the management ...
