Went in here by chance and was really happy!! The food is cheap but the chicken was a good portion, well made and delicious. I'm glad I didn't get the 1/2 chicken, the 1/4 was plenty filling. Seems very authentic, and you can get some other parts you normally don't see like gizzards, tripe and hearts. Highly recommended

Six of us went here for supper. There are quite a number of interesting meals. Potatoes? Of course, this is where potatoes were first cultivated. My wife had the beef hearts with boiled potatoes and Peruvian corn. The hearts were a bit overdone but still quite good. . I had pork with a chorizo sausage. Friends had chicken, in various ways. Consensus was that the chicken dishes were really superior. Plantains and empanadas were also good. Service was good and friendly. Try any of the Peruvian non-alcoholic drinks for a good contrast. Total cost of the food (with tax & tip) was only $21/person.

When it came time to plan our wedding my (now) husband and I wanted something different. JP and I had been going to Machu Chicken on a weekly basis since we moved to Union Square in 2012. I thought it was a long shot, but Rosy and her team agreed to cater our wedding in Cornish, New Hampshire. We were thrilled! Our menu consisted of the roasted chicken, tacu tacu, sweet potatoes, quinoa stew and misky salad (and of course the sauces). For signature drinks they made the most amazing sangria and margaritas and the apps were out of this world. My family and friends won't stop talking about the tequeños :) Rosy/Angelica/Hugo/Ivan and the rest of the team did such a wonderful job. The Machu team made sure JP and I ate and drank plenty-I wasn't one of those brides that didn't eat or drink a thing. They beyond exceeded our expectations. We can't wait for them to cater future events and cannot recommend them enough. Thank you Machu!! xx
