I had the most fab food at this amazing restaurant! Healthy but delicious. I can't wait to go back again and try some more dishes on the menu.
The 3rd Peruvian we visited in London and again we had a great experience. The service is great, the food offers a great pallet of flavors and tastes and the people in the kitchen are very passionate of their job.
We discovered Andina searching online for Healthy Breakfast in London - and we were rewarded! Excellent quality of food, freshly made in front of us (sitting by the cooking corner is the added value of this place!). Serviced by amazingly warm and welcoming staff (especially the cooks, from almost every part of the world, gives its kitchen and listed dishes such a universal and international taste ;-). Overall the best experience ever in London's busy around-Easter days and certainly a place to revisit.
Amaizing food. the service is wonderfull.. All the dishes that we tryed were delicious. I really recomend the place, please dont forget try the dekicious Pizco Sour,
This was my second visit to Andina Peruvian Kitchen, which hooked me in from the first visit. I booked online for a birthday celebration that was a simple process and was greeted to be escorted to my table downstairs. This restaurant is always busy and has that lively atmosphere that is a hallmark of a popular place. I arrived early and was waiting for one more guest. There was no pressure to order quickly as the staff had a very supportive vibe. The food is very much tapas based, presented well with good flavours. In particular the selection of wines are of good quality with an interesting array of cocktails. A particular lovely touch was the staff singing happy birthday to my mother and providing a free dessert, which was a touching gesture. The staff provided recommendations on the menu and helped guide where needed. Overall a very pleasant experience and certainly will return for another enjoyable experience. Highly recommended!
I have been to Andina quite a few times now. They do the whole Peruvian thing very well. It's nice to go out for a meal and not feel horribly stuffed and carb-loaded afterwards. All the ingredients are fresh and light and well, I love ceviche so its my kinda place! I've not yet tried their breakfast menu but I know the rest of the menu well. If I'm out for lunch I'll go for a juice or smoothie - they are delish. If its a dinner thing I go straight for a pisco sour! They had some nice looking fruity versions too - for my next trip maybe. I have tried every item from the 'Ceviche Bar' but I think my favourites are the Andina and the Stone Bass & Fig Tiradito. Though that's a hard decision to make! I love the addition of the sweet potato in the Andina and the fig works so well in the spicy tiger's milk of the later. I love love love tiger's milk. It's usually made using lime juice, sliced onion, chilies, salt, pepper and the juices of the fish it helps to marinate. Though every chef adds their own twist. If you're feel like something a little more meaty, then order the chicken and lamb skewers. The lamb is cooked to perfection; very slightly pink and so juicy. The herb sauce compliments it well. The quinoa, avocado and cucumber salad is also a great dish to order alongside the rest of your meal. And finally, desert. Another south american treat I love is dulce de leche. I remember a friend of mine from school went back to Brazil every summer and brought me back a jar of the stuff. Back then, you couldn't get it anywhere, but that didn't stop me from eating it out of the jar with a spoon! If you have a sweet tooth I recommend ordering the filo pastry with dulce de leche and pecan ice cream. You won't regret. Its not a cheap meal out but the food is fresh and made well and a also great introduction to ceviche if you've not tried it before. Next time you're in Shoreditch definitely pop in.
Fantastic Peruvian food. Presentation is elegant, the mix of flavours is subtle and complex. The overall taste of the food is upbeat, fresh and punchy with the inclusion of the peruvian chilli ingredients such as tigers milk. My partner and I love ceviche so this place is great for us, he is Colombian so we spend alot of time eating ceviche over there and really miss it in London. We've been to 'Senor Ceviche', 'Ceviche' restaurant and Andina twice; I actually prefer the layout of 'Ceviche' in Soho and the staff there are super friendly, but the food at Andina is very marginally more sophisticated. The table we were given through Quandoo was in a great place (central / top floor) however I did find it was a little loud, and generally the atmosphere was very busy but it was a Saturday evening so only to be expected really. My favourite starter are the chicharrones, oh and the quinoa brownie is not to be missed!
I love Andina and I'm a regular customer but I had dinner last Sat and it was quite disappointing. The food was lovely as always but the service was bad. We were celebrating my sister's birthday and we wanted to have a special night. We tried to book with time in advance but the table that we got was at 22.30 as the restaurant was full. It's not a problem if the service is good but it wasn't like that. The waitress put pressure on us all the time to order desserts or coffee when we were having the starters! She didn't take the empty plates when she should do it and she brought our coffees twice when we hadn't finish our dinner. Her attitude wasn't very kind neither (something weird because I always meet very nice staff when I visited the restaurant before. I worked as a waitress some time ago and I understand that you can have mistakes but you should be attentive of your customers and be very kind because then the mistake is not so big. A smile is free. We felt that she wanted to finish the service and she were putting pressure on us but actually we pay the same bill that the customers at 8 pm for a worst service. I think is better don't take bookings at 10.30 pm if you think you can't give a good service. Hope you can improve these aspects. Good food is a must but with good service is a winner. Thank you very much.
The food was good - colourful and tasty. The service less so. We had a reservation for 18:00 and we were told upon arrival that we had to leave at 20:00. Fine, that's how it works in London after all (!!!), i.e. having to eat with a stopwatch at hand. The first part of the dinner was really rushed, with waiters taking away from our table plates that had still food in them and glasses that hadn't been emptied yet. Not the most relaxing dining experience. Once we were done with the main courses, the army of waiters in the (very small) restaurant suddenly forgot about us, probably as they were too busy talking to each other. After waiting for 15 minutes, I had to ask the waiter that was standing behind my husband staring into space whether we could have a dessert menu. We finally ordered our desserts, which came shortly after. But then we had to wait another 10 minutes to have the bill and another 10 to get the change... I would have expected a better service an more attention to detail for such a highly rated and expensive restaurant.
This was our first visit to the restaurant and it will not be our last!! Amazing culinary experience in a lovely atmosphere. Friendly staff and our waitress really took the time to explain to us the menu and what was the best things to try – great since we had not tried Peruvian before. We sampled several dishes - fillet steak [OMG - divine], classic ceviche, the Ox Tongue, two specials; a Peruvian style sushi and razor clams plus a tomato salad and we finished off with a quinoa chocolate brownie. Presentation of the food was really good and the flavour was like a party in your mouth. I would thoroughly recommend this place… get there before I do again!
We booked a table for two, at noon on a sunday. We were seated downstairs, it was pretty cold outside but the temperature was perfect in the basement room. We ordered 6 dishes and everything was perfect. The Ceviches are perfect, as usual, and the grill too. Unfortunately there was no more octopus on that day, we were a little bit disapointed but still, the other grilled dishes were divine. The service is warm, you won't be left with no water or something else. The only thing I would recommend is to wait a little bit more between some dishes because having 6 plates in front of you at the same time may be confusing. We will ask next time. One last thing, we had the daughnuts to share for dessert it it was amazing!
The service was incredibly rushed and not particularly friendly. We had barely sat down when there was someone hovering to take our food order. He then appeared at our table literally every minute, 4 more times until we ordered. There was something on the menu we wanted to order and we were told this was only available at lunch time. This was a bit annoying but fine and the waiter pointed out something else we should have. We agreed to this and then it never came. We asked him about it and he said we hadn't ordered it. The app we were told to download to pay didn't work as we were sat downstairs. All in all my friend and I were a bit disappointed as we've wanted to go to Andina for a while and it felt like we were being shoved towards the exit from the moment we entered so a second sitting could be accommodated. Ceviche was better.
The food was absolutely incredible but the service did not match the quality of the food. We had a reservation for 3 people at 2:30 pm and we were not seated until 2:50 pm. The wait staff was friendly, however once the food was brought to the table we felt rather abandoned. We had to keep waiving down people to get more water and process from the time we asked for the bill to leaving the restaurant took about 30 minutes. Can't say enough amazing things about the diversity of the menu and quality of the food. I lived in Peru, and this really reflects the authenticity of the country while adding a modern and innovative spin. The prices are also very reasonable. I will definitely be back!
We visited the restaurant on Saturday 06.12.2014 night araround 21.00 p.m. The atmosphere was very lively and happy. We did not have to wait to be sitted and served. Our waiter was very helpful and he explained everything not only about the dishes and the flavors , but also about portions. The food was excellent! And the pisco sours too! We have also visited Cheviche in Soho area , so we were hoping for a similart exprerience. Prices are not cheap but the quality of food is very good. Overall, we had a great evening and i think that Andina restaurant worthed the visit!
Superb assortment of the delicious and flavoursome vegetarian options, all fresh and cooked to perfection. Chullo Salad and Quinoa, Avocado & Cucumber were in particularly mind-blowing, as well as the Ceviches. The grilled dishes (octopus & fillet steak) were less impressive though, but for the quality it's very reasonably priced! Would prefer it to Lima Floral and Ceviche without a doubt. To our slight frustration, all the ordered plates were served almost altogether in less than half an hour - our tiny table wasn't really suitable for accommodating such a variety and abundance...Very friendly and attentive service and nice ambiance, but it would be even more enjoyable if the music was less loud. Will certainly visit again - a highly recommended Peruvian food spot!
We went with some friends and we did like it very much. The food is great, something different if you are tired of the typical English breakfast (some dishes are quite spicy but the staff tell you in advance - if you like spicy they are great anyways). Don't miss out the granola - they make it and it's delicious. There are also lots of small "tapas" great for sharing. Also, the atmosphere is nice, the staff very helpful and friendly and the service very quick. And all for a very reasonable price, not expensive at all! We will definitely come back.
I'm already a big fan of Andina, but I thought a new review was in order to compliment them on their new dishes: they're absolutely delicious, especially the Tiradito de Lomo. This was also the first time I ordered one of their Pisco cocktails (in the past I'd just gone with the classic Pisco Sour, which is very good): I was delighted with the selection and creativity of the Pisco cocktails. My favourite was Amantani, the passion fruit juice made it very refreshing. All in all, still loving the food, ambiance, great service, and creativity behind Andina, I highly recommend it.
My husband and I got there 40 mins earlier than our booking but they were nice enough not to send us off and would give us a table as soon as there's one available. The food was tasty and interesting. Being a troublesome forgetful pregnant woman, I had to send a beef dish back to have it fully cooked because we forgot to mention it when we order; the waitress was so apologetic (it was our fault really, but she so incredibly polite!) and the beef came back speedily, well done, and still extremely juicy and delicious! It was amazing :)
Visited as a party of 6 celebrating a 40th birthday party. Booking was done online and very easy. The restaurant called the day of our booking to confirm the table. Very welcoming staff, friendly atmosphere and open kitchen! Selected 2 dishes each so we could share - tapas style! A great selection of dishes, everything was extremely delicious and fresh. As a diner with intolerances these were asked about and catered for. Saying that, almost everything on the menu was GF so I really didn't have to worry. Would not hesitate to recommend and look forward to visiting again.
Tonight was an experimce to keep next to your fondest memories. The whole team is there to make you feel welcome and they'd do everything to accommodate your needs. We were a party of 5 with one intollerant to dairy products and we found that they have a full menu of non-dairy food. Great atmosphere, service and the quality of the food is exceptionally high. If I were to point out just one thing is that it can be a bit hard for people not specially fond of hot dishes to eat here. Not my case though!
Absolutely delicious tapas style food! This restaurant has great music and a fantastic, fun vibe and our waiter (who was from Lima) took incredible care of us and made so many helpful suggestions re the menu. My dinner companion had just returned from Peru, and found the food incredibly authentic. The cocktail menu is also really varied and unique, and for those who don't drink there are yummy smoothie options and/or juice shots (I highly recommend the cacao, banana and coffee smoothie!) I will absolutely be sure to visit Andina again when I next visit London :)
Absolutely amazing food, this restaurant and sister restaurant Ceviche, are currently my favourite places to eat, the food is so tasty. We had fantastic cocktails and decided to have another after the meal, the waiter had been very helpful up until the point that we had ordered another round of our favourite but made a made a mistake and ordered the wrong one, after much annoyance on his part he spoke to his manager and they agreed to send us the right ones instead at no extra charge which was fantastic, but the waiter made us feel very awkward about our error, not really how you want to feel when going out for an enjoyable dinner.
Nice setting, staff very nice, food good. One small thing I appreciated: I met a group for brunch and two were 15 minutes late. The staff offered us drinks but were happy to wait. Many places in London the staff are hovering round you trying to take your spare chairs or urging you to get on an order. It was nice that they didn't do that. One small gripe was that my food was a bit lukewarm when it arrived. They happily reheated it, but a place of their quality shouldn't really make such mistakes. But once it was reheated it was delicious, and everyone else seemed happy with theirs.
Just came back after dining at Andina in Shoreditch. Had a wonderful time. The food was really good. Am vegetarian, but had lots to choose from. We were four of us and tried almost all their vegetarian dishes on the menu. In Each of the dishes, one could taste different ingredients and all healthy! Even desserts were good. The service was good and our waitress, Miskin, really took good care of us, though being very busy. Everyone was friendly and loved the atmosphere. We'll be back. Thank you all at Andina.
Fabulous food, nice place but one quibble. It's way too rushed. They recommend 3 dishes per person (possibly too many) and then bring them all at once. The table was heaving with food, we didn't want the hot things to get cold, it felt like pressure to eat and get out (even though the reservations are for 2 hours, we were done in 1). The waiter, though charming, was a hoverer - moving in and sweeping up dishes or just passing by endlessly looking at the table as if to say "haven't you eaten that yet?" So do go BUT order two dishes. Then order two more. And if you're still hungry, order a couple more and then you can go at your own pace!
Good, friendly vibe with very nice and attentive staff. The service was excellent - as were the Pisco Sours! The menu was authentic with many Peruvian dishes I recognised and the portion sizes were good for sharing between two. The only drawbacks were not being able to get a table before 9pm (even on a Tuesday night) and if you are not expecting spicy food then the panca chilli in many of the dishes can be slightly overpowering. Otherwise one of the best eating out experiences I have had in London for a very long time. Definitely going back soon.
Personally I would barely give the sufficiency to this restaurant: - I had mixed reviews, the grilled dishes where certainly the highlight of the night (Octopus and steak), from there everything goes downhill, we tried 3 ceviches and all failed to deliver, (Personally is my main interest when going to a Peruvian restaurant)!! the tuna based was too spicy to appreciate the flavour of the fish, the classic ceviche was good, but nothing exceptional and definitely not worth the visit to a restaurant and the palmito ceviche the ingredients didn't paired well together, it was more pleasant to try the different ingredients separately. Finally we go to the dessert, (Passion surrender) its most memorable feature is the name. To conclude the service was good, and you could definitely feel the waiter trying hard to render a good service. In terms of ambience the music was too loud and after an hour in the restaurant you just feel that you need to escape the venue.
The food and wine were delicious! We went for a combination of ceviche, lamb stew, yuca, sausages, beef heart and dolce de leche pastry desserts. We enjoyed all the dishes and the service was great - the waiters were attentive without being invasive and were entertaining too. They couldn't find our booking when we arrived but we were 10 mins late and they seated us in a waiting area for 5 mins and offered us the drinks menu whilst they got our table ready. Overall I highly recommend and will definitely be coming here again.
The food was light and very tasty - a fantastic first ceviche experience. My favourite was the grilled octopus (sublimely soft and juicy) and the yellow tuna ceviche (reminded me of tuna sashimi which I like very much). The service was great, too; our server was very friendly and gave very good recommendations for side dishes. The food is on a pricy side but it is well-worth the experience. I will be definitely returning for brunch/dinner in the future.
Food was incredible! Fresh, interesting flavour combinations and beautifully presented. Our waiter was attentive and gave excellent recommendations. The only let down was where we were sitting. It was a busy Friday evening and we were sat next to the pick up point on the bar meaning we were constantly surrounded by waiting staff hovering at the bar. On our other side there was a big table with people coming and going constantly. I understand these aren't necessarily in the restaurants control but I can't help but think if we were sitting elsewhere our dinner would have been more like the intimate dinner for two we were looking for. As it was it felt quite hectic.
I love this restaurant. Great food, great atmosphere, great service. It's not the cheapest way of eating with all the smaller sharing plates adding up but very tasty all the same. I'm knocking one point off this time as despite spending a lot of money on our table of four we were told we couldn't have a final round of cocktails even though others were still eating & the restaurant still clearly open. We were not drunk or rowdy just wanted a nightcap. It was disappointing end to an otherwise lovely meal.
The food and service is fantastic. Interesting flavour combinations and beautifully presented. The only reason this place dropped a mark is because the tables are crammed in. Mixed feelings on that one, the food makes up for being bumped a few times and having the sugar pot swept away by a trendy handbag (what else, it is Redchurch Street after all) however when I had to stop eating to let one (of three strollers/pushchairs through) more than a tad annoying. I'll still go back, plan on eating my way through the menu!
Andina was recommended to me through a colleague at work, so I though I'd give it a try. The service was really good, the waiters/waitresses would really come to check up on us. This was my first time trying Peruvian food and I didn't really know where to start so I trusted the waiter's recommendations and everything he suggested was absolute amazing. If you're a foodie like my girlfriend and I, I would highly recommend Andina
My boyfriend and I had a lovely evening at Andina. I had two Pisco Sours, which were delicious and he had Peruvian beer, which he enjoyed too. We had lots of small dishes which we were helped to choose by the staff. We had stuff to share - crispy pork belly, cerviche, briased aubergine, amongst others and it was all so tasty. The staff were really attentive. Everything was fab and we'll go again. A tiny bit expensive for my purse for every week but this was a treat for xmas.
the booking process worked perfectly, and as for Andina, it was a rally nice experience. A couple of us came for a working lunch - and had some time pressure. We were novices to this cuisine, and staff were really helpful in steering us through the menu, and what would be reasonable for a 1hr lunch timeframe. Food was novel to us, and really, really nice - presentation and gustation. Will be back for more....
We were unlucky and had a waiter that was very unhelpful and hit 4 pm that is their lunch break. I order dishes that didn't specify any spicy chilli and asked as I can't eat that. She told me point blank all the dishes were spicy. Then advised me that noting spicy could be removed, basically deal with it. We were seated in the sun for 2 hours and it was a task to get the waiters to come and take orders or bring water after our first order. We moved sits to get out of the sun as soon as we did someone came to told us we couldn't and they needed to check, four tables were available at the time. At least that got them close to take our drinks order. Is a shame as the food was nice but absolutely doesn't worth struggling for it.
The food was really refreshing and tasty, we both left feeling full and satisfied but not stuffed and greedy which I find you often feel when leaving a restaurant. My only criticism would be that the waiting staff made us feel a bit rushed. Whilst I appreciate we had the table reserved for 2 hours, as soon as we sat down I felt there was a conscious effort from them to get us in and out as quickly as possible which is never a good feeling.
Nice Resturant, the food tastes good and the cocktail was delicious. My only recommendation to the resturant is rethink about the portions, which were tiny even for a girl. Ordering 4 tapas dishes for one person and 4 drinks should not cost >£60 !! I think it's a good place for a first date with someone who had a meal before coming out but if you are actually hungry then this isn't the place to visit. I must say the staff were lovely and friendly. The decoration and atmosphere were lovely. Food Prices and portions must be improved to make it worth the visit.
Nice Place, nice food, I loved all the smells around the kitchen area, real ingredients, me and my friends more than happy with all the food, I want to point out about the chips with huancaina, there was not enough sauce in the dish, and the causa de camarones, nothing special; but the ceviche clasico and the tiradito de pato nikkei, outstanding!, I will return, definitely... I know it is quite unusual to say it, but I really liked the bathroom area decoration.
Fantastic food and drinks, great decor and atmosphere, but what let us down was that we felt very rushed. They reminded us 3 times that we had the table booked for 2 hours only and 3 separate waiters were clearing plates and drinks before we had finished them, and were hovering over us to finish them so they could take them away. We were asked 3 times to order desserts only 45 minutes into our 2 hour booking. This made us feel quite uncomfortable. A shame, because everything else was great! My third time dining here and not had that rushed problem before.
I had high hopes for Andina, as I'd been to it's sister restaurant Ceviche and loved everything I had. Instead I was rather disappointed by our dishes - the tongue was definitely the highlight, with the quinoa and feta salads pretty tasty too. The tuna was so cold it set my teeth off, clearly straight from the fridge and lacked flavour. The lamb was just alright but the octopus too chewy. The most disappointing was the ceviche Classico - it was really vinegary and was missing the real flavour of tigers milk or the fish itself! The cocktails were nice, but nothing to write home about. My friend was in town from NYC and I had been raving about Peruvian food here in London - in the end I was just rather embarrassed by the lacklustre spread!
Friendly service, excellent dishes with complimentary interesting flavours and arriving at the table as the chef intended - so the hot dishes were hot and delicious! I last came to this restaurant over a year ago and the standard remains excellent. I also went to their sister restaurant in Soho a couple of weekends ago and the menu was different but equally excellent with service to match.
Definitely the best breakfast I ever had in London. If you like healthy breakfast and want to try something else then Andina is definitely the place to go. The ambience and the staff are absolutely authentic and make you feel very welcome. And if you like coffee I would highly recommend you to try an espresso here, I really loved it (unfortunately they don't sell their coffee).
I love this place and will defiently be going back. The food was amazing and the coffee at the end of the night was delicious- they even had quinoa milk!!! The only thing that let me down was when I looked online they had some delicious sounding cocktails and when I arrived there menu was different and the hadnt changed the online menu in saying that the cocktails we had were still divine. Thanks so much for a great dinner.
The food/ cocktails were delicious but I was surprised that I booked a few weeks in advance and we were sat right by the door on a cold night (there were only 2 of us). We asked to move and got placed further back but being in the corner meant the waitress didn't spot us when we wanted to order more drinks. Downstairs looked lovely so I'd definitely asked to be sat there if I was booking in advance again.
Our table was not ready for our reservation time. We had to wait 45 minutes for our food. The brought us the wrong dessert and when we asked to replace it they said it would take a long time. That said, the food was excellent when it came, the pisco sour was also excellent and the ambience was great. I think it was just the case of the restaurant being too busy to the waiters and kitchen staff to cope!
lovely food, my boyfriend was very impressed too. my least favourite was scallops from the mains menu, didnt like the sauces they were served with, although scallops are my favourite thing to have in every restaurant! not a great choice of bubbly and alcohol in general apart from cocktails, those were great. didnt like the beans in the coffee at all. my boyfriend couldnt drink his coffee either - a waste of money for both of us! Will return!
The staff, ambience, open kitchen, food, allergy and dietary requirements are all on spot. Being a vegan with a handful list of allergies make dining experience stressful and often risky, but Andina is one of the less common restaruants where you can eat not worried about discovering your allergen in the dish or checking if you are having an allergic reaction. So feeling safe and a fantastic ambience and food? I am coming back very soon for more.
Andina was very accommodating with our large party. They worked with me to change the reservation when our plans changed. The set menu was delicious and well worth the price. Staff was friendly very helpful. I have a few go to places that I take clients to when I am in town. Andina is now on the list for next time I am in town.
great food, great service but very noisy place. It's a fantastic place, but it's too loud. There is just one thing that really annoys me and it's when I've got the feeling that they want me out to put another people in my table, and I did have a bit of that feeling. I was staking plates away from my table without even being asked if I had finished or if I wanted them to be removed, even though it's a common practice in UK, I get really annoyed when that happens. I like to be asked.
