Never had before. Enjoyed this so much. The flavors were rich and the spices were right. Wish I lived close enough to visit again soon.

Fun place to go for a date night or with friends, low key dining and friendly staff. Can get busy around dinner time, but have never had to wait long for a table. Highly recommend the Encocado with shrimp!

This Equadorian restaurant is authentic to the best of my judgement. Food was unique and out of this world. It is a small venue so go for lunch or for dinner early in the evening.

This is a hidden jewel in NE Minneapolis. I spent a winter in Ecuador and the flavors and atmosphere at Chimborazo is a great place to relive that experience in the US

Chimborazo is a cozy, family-style Ecuadorian restaurant with an extensive and intriguing menu of Ecuadorian dishes, or an Euadorian/Andean take on typical Latin American standards such as Empanadas de carne, Hornado con papas and my favorite, Churrasco. Service is friendly. Food comes quickly, and hot....More

In addition to Jim's response, you should be able to order the salad (without cheese – but do check on the dressing) and I've had some delicious vegetable soups that should be safe as well. We always order the yucca... More
