The service is a little weird, the waiter has a heavy accent. The food is really good - expensive, but it comes in huge portions. I got the seafood paella.

This was my first experience with Peruvian food, so i was skeptical. But the chicken was really tasty and their potatoes were good too. If you're allergic to nuts, watch out for the pesto pasta (it amazing has nuts in the sauce) aside from the nut incident, the good was great

I have Peruvian food at home, so the food was just decent. I expected something different, and it was a little pricey. There are other more authentic places that you could choose from, but since it's the closest, I end up going here.

If your looking for good authentic food at a reasonable price, then this is the place to eat. The service at the Cerritos location is horrible. I have eaten at the Cerritos location three times, and each time it gets worst. The Gardena location has much better service and same quality of food.

El Rocoto's food is great. All their dishes are great, and their service is fantastic. The prices can vary depending on what you get, but for the most part it's relatively cheap.

The city of Los Angeles gave this location a "C" grade. The restaurant rapidly posted a letter apologizing to El Rocoto Restaurant clients for the inconvenience and blames the situation to a worker who had made previous mistakes as a result was fired. The food is good, that is, if I was to grade it from 0 to be the lowest and 10 been the highest, I would give it an 8.5. In addition, the service needs more attention it needs to be enhanced; some of the waitresses and waiters forgot or took a long time to provide me with a fork or my drink. I personally would give service a 3.0 grade out of 10. Ten being the highest/excellent
score, of course.

I have tried the following dishes and I have grade them from 0 to be poorest grade to 10 been an excellent grade:

? Lomo Saltado ? Lean Strips of beef, sauteed with sliced onions, tomatoes, French fries and steam rice. GRADE 9.5

? Jalea ? Deep fried fish topped with breaded shrimp, squid, scallops and octopus. Served with marinated onions and tartar sauce. This dish is good for tow people. GRADE 10

? Parihuela Salvaje ? Soup with snow crab legs, shrimp, fish mussels, squid and octopus. GRADE 9.5

? Tallarin Saltado de Mariscos ? Soup with shrimp, squid, octopus and mussels, sauteed with onions, tomatoes and mixed with spaghetii. GRADE 2.5
