The chicken here was great. The portions were large. I couldn't finish my meal and I shared it with my 3 year old son. He loved the chicken and he's a very picky eater. I got the 1/4 chicken dark meal with the plantains and fried yuca and it was great. The dipping sauces were very tasty also. The place... More

They started us off with fried plantain chips and different sauces to dip them in. It was unique and a great way to start the meal. I ordered a Chicha Morada- tasted just like home, with Tacu Tacu and... More

Visited this incredible restaurant on my trip to see my son and believe me when I tell you since I am Peruvian that there is no restaurant that can serve a better ceviche and pollo a la brasa as Sardi's. Yes, you have to wait because it is always busy but it is definitely worth it. We order 1 whole... More

The food was good. The portions were reasonable. The prices were ok. The service was slow. The atmosphere was fine. I would eat there again, but wouldn't go out of my way though.

We were a table of 8 people. We order 2 whole chickens and sides. The food was delicious. The service was quick and we had a wonderful time. I would recommend this restaurant any time.

I have now eaten at both the Frederick and Gaithersburg locations... I am normally not a 'chicken' person. However, I crave Sardi's chicken with green beans and plantains. Their sauces are also great: ranging from the mild (I need) to the spicy/sweat inducing sauce my husband loves. Wish we had discovered them sooner!
