Decided to stop by this past week on a whim with some friends from NJ after the beach, and I must say I was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. Ordered the traditional Chicharon de Pollo ( Deep fried chicken pieces ) and Arroz Chino ( Cuban Chinese fried rice. Which came with a lettuce/ tomatoe salad and fried plantains. Service was fairly quick despite the restaurant being pretty full. Quality was excellent and most of all the quantity was good enough for two people although it was only one cover dish. Location is very accessible by Mass transit. Most of all the price is more than fair. I will definitely go back.

Ate here for lunch for the first time. We were seated right away and the servers were friendly and attentive. We ordered the ropa vieja with some platano maduros and black beans and hubby had the 1/2 Peruvian chicken, the food was excellent! Very tasty and fulfilling. The portions were humongous so we couldn't even finish our plates! The price is a bargain for NYC standards. The only drawback is that the seating space was very tight but its the norm for expensive NYC. Highly recommended! Definitely will be coming back.

When visiting relatives in NYC this restaurant is only a few blocks away, and a must do for us. We were just here for this years' visit. The restaurant is still as good as it was last year. The half chicken and rice dish is still my favorite and still at a great low price especially for NYC. They give you a choice of either yellow spanish rice or fried rice - I get the fried rice which is very good. Service is prompt. It does get loud because it is busy and popular. Even so, we've never had to wait long for a table. If you are in the area, give it a try.

Came here looking for a good ceviche and boy did we find it! Additionally fried plantains, fried rice, great chorizo and shrimp. Prices were very affordable and the place was packed (but very little wait) even into late in the night. The staff was very courteous and nice, overall a very good experience (and delicious flan was the icing on the cake).
