Fantastic restaurant! My family and I came here to celebrate my birthday last year and this year. My maternal side is Peruvian and Tierra Perú is very authentic and delicious. They were very kind and accommodating too, playing ‘Happy Birthday music’ and helping us set up the cake. Very kind Peruvian hospitality. Definitely will visit again.
