“I expected more...but it is what it is. Nice people tho.”
Reviewed 12 September 2011

Last week walking around the Mission in SF with my girl, we found this place and decided to give it a shot. It was ok. Having just tried Fresca, another Peruvian rest. in SF and liking it so much, we wanted to try more Peruvian food. This place is a bit small and cluttered...a bit overcrowded and a lady sitting next to us with an incessantly crying baby made a good food experience lackluster. However, the food was good and the soups left a lot to be desired, but the chicken was awesome. Nice t place to eat out, but not excellent, just ok. A bit pricey for the area...but, it was ok for what its worth.

Reviewed 31 July 2011

My friend and I were in Bernal Heights Neighborhood and decided to tryout new Restaurants in the area.

Mi Lindo Peru was the restaurant of choice.

We ordered the following and we were happy with the choices
1. Empanada De Carne
2. Ceviche de Pescado
3. Saltado de Pollo
4. Chica Morada

“Nice place in the mission district”
Reviewed 25 February 2010

We ate lunch here and just kind of fell into the place. We were going to another restaurant but as we walked by this one decided to try it.

The food is authentic, not Americanized so some may not like it but if you like variety it is a good choice. The owner and staff looked to be from Peru but it is in the middle of a Mexican neighborhood so they say it is Peruvian and Spanish. We stuck with the Peruvian dishes and they did not disappoint. Everything was good and service also.

“Not so great”
Reviewed 22 February 2009

I went to this restaurant after reading some reviews of peruvian resataurants. I ordered a ceviche which turned out that it wasn't that great, it was very very plain, a piece of sweet potato and a piece of potato on the side and some corn with few strips of onions. I had better ceviches with more flavor and really delicious items that accompanied it, maybe some sea weed, more lemon juice, etc. In sum something was lacking on it. Maybe some other dishes are better.
