Definately a Place to Go Back to...

I am a native San Franciscan, passed by this place many a time but had never eaten here before. My daughter recommended this place and wanted to eat here for her birthday so off we went for a family dinner. The food was excellent, parking was easy (there's a paid parking lot next door) and there were hardly any people in there. We got seated right away and a friendly waiter waited on us. I recommend Salchipapa (french fries with hotdogs) and garlic mushrooms for appetizers and Saltado de Pollo for main course. For dessert, Mousse de Mango or the Flan. The flan was the best I have ever tasted; it was flavored with cloves. To top it off, the meal was reasonably priced. Definately a place to go back to...

Talk about Value!

Think: typical American diner. The atmosphere and decor is reminiscent of a truck stop, if there were a truck stop that served Peruvian and Spanish food. Such good portions and quality for the money. Yes, I've had better fried calamari and Spanish style beef, but never for so little! Actually, the fried calamari was better than most high end tapas bars. Next time I would probably just order take-out, because the food and prices far outshines the dreary atmosphere.

Sad atmosphere-Average Food

I ate at Linda Peru last night (the one near Chesnut) because I could not get into Mamacita's. This place was empty (not a good sign!) and we were hungry-so we settled. I wish I had gone to Pluto's next door instead.

The food was very average. I am not saying it was BAD, just average. Homemade food slapped on a plate, put in front of you. There was lots of white rice and bread and other uninteresting fillers. The sangria was good (I will give them that) but my fried fish was greasy and the oil tasted old. The fish also came SANS any sauce, it needed sauce. My dining partner had the lamb with a green sauce and he loved it-but he is Irish so anything lamb is good for him, and being from Ireland he is not as picky about his food. (no offense to Irish cuisine, but he is old school Irish and was forced to eat bad food in the boarding schools in the 60's in Ireland-so for him, anything is usually pretty good!)

I thought the fried yucca was pretty good, although nothing special. The yelow dipping sauce that it came with helped save the dish from being a total bore.

The bill was over 100 bucks for three of us, not worth it at all! Very mediocre food, overpriced-no ambiance, and I won't go there again. Go to Pluto's instead.

Delicious chicken and rice!

We recently went here on a whim, and it was delicious. Great friendly service, nothing fancy inside but the food was fresh, the chicken and rice with corn were tasty and the kebab apps were tasty! A good place for big families and authentic peruvian.

Sangrias beat Cha Cha Cha.. HANDS DOWN!

I've spent some time in Spain. And what I drank mostly when I was there was the sangria.

When I go to Mi Lindo.. it reminds me of Spain. The sangria is exactly how it was when I was back in Spain. My favorite dish is the beef steak ala pobre. its a pan fried steak with veggies and a fried banana. Fried banana sounds weird? I thought so at first, but when you put the sweetness of the banana, mix it with the spicyness of the salsa, and the tenderness of the beef.. OH IT IS HEAVEN!

My boyfriend even got jealous of the steak because I was soo into it, I wasn't paying attention to him anymore! =P

Some of the best Peruvian food I've ever had

We showed up at this establishment, having heard a last minute recommendation from a friend of a firend, on a Saturday night with no reservation and a group of 6 people. I was honestly expecting to be standing outside for a good two hours, but instead the hostess went out of her way to move people around at the back bar that overlooks the open kitchen and got us seated immediately. While not ideal for having an intimate conversation with everyone in your group, I was impressed with the level of service right off the bat. The food, on the other hand, made the service pale in comparison. Everyything that our group had was absolutely superb! I would highly recommend the calamari and any of their pasta or seafood dishes. The cooking is all done right there in front of you, open air style, so you see the fresh ingredients getting thrown into your pan and cooked while you watch. Excellent food, excellent service.

best peruvian in SF, hands down !

Only a 9.0 !! The best peruvian food spot in SF only gets a 9.0 ! It deserves a 9.9, not a 10 only because the parking around the Mission district can be really tough. Small quaint spot in the Mission serves up some of the best food you can anywhere. Get a pitcher of Sangria, start with some calamari, order the Seafood spagehetti and the Lomo saltado and at the end of the night you will not only be full but amazed at the quality and delicious taste of the food. i cant say enough about this place !! Staff is nice and friendly, although during packed nights you may get a lil ignored as it does get hectic. Dont walk but run to Mi Lindu Peru Soon !!

Loved the service in this place!

The place is small but the dishes are huge and delicious...I went with my friends last saturday and we tried the ""Ceviche de Pescado""...I'd highly recommend you that dish!!!This place can get busy on weekends and requieres a little patience but the service is overall very good and the waitress are very friendly, so don't believe the postings about bad service...

Must be missing something...

To tell you the truth, I cannot find any redeeming qualities about this restaurant. After reading tons of positive reviews, we decided to see what the locals deemed as a ""hidden gem"" of peruvian cuisine...well, unless we went to the wrong place altogether, this place was awful. There is NO ambience, the cooking is homemade but in a bad, cheap way and the service was nice but truly lacking any professionalism & courtesy. Definintely do not recommend if you are interested in good food and nice atmosphere.
