We ended our walking tour of Old Town Lima in China Town. Since you have to try a Chifa when in Lima, we selected this place. It is quite large, with many people dining already. The 3 of us shared two dishes, and ended up...More

We always come here with Family when visiting Lima. The prices are very affordable and portions are large. Great wonton suop and appetizers. Tough to find parking in this area.

If you come to Lima, you have to visit China Town San Joy Lao. It is great to see how the Chinese people are able to adapt their food to the local community. Great fusion of Peruvian and Chinese cooking.

I went there 3 weeks ago with my sister in law and my son, who is 4 and I must say, it was expensive and so not worth it! We order a kind of combo for 2, which is actually for 3 people but still...More
