Took my peruvian friends from Germany and Michigan to a restaurant chain at Time Square. we paid 30 dollars for just a hamburger with french fries and soda or ice tea. Next day went to Panca!!!! we felt like being at home. Food, price and service extraordinary, we ate a lot. we even have dessert!!!! we had appetizer: choritos a la chalaca!! and Anticucho (grilled marinated cows heart ), main dish : lomo saltado, chupe de camarones (shrimp soup) and arroz con pollo (rice and chicken cooked with cilantro), peruvian soda Inca Kola and Peruvian drink Chicha Morada made of purple corn. cocktails :Pisco sour and algarrobina: delicious! dessert: sample of Alfajor, Tres leches and Lucuma puddin! good music and the best of all ....we paid 40.00 each!!! compare this with the 30.00 we paid the night before! Very good portions, in fact, the appetizer would have been enough . Guys, thanks for giving me the chance of taking my friends to such a great peruvian restaurant! it was fantastic!!! we had a great time! Peruvian food is one of the greatest of the entire world! Go to Panca!!!! You wont be dissapointed!

Great place to go with a group of girlfriends for pisco sours and ceviche tapas. The lomo saltado was delish! Cute waiter named Jack showed us a great time and serviced us all night long. woo hooo!!!

I love Panca. They have the best causa I have ever had, that trio killed me. I crave it every day. I also liked the jalea, cebiche and pisco sour, very good quality and tasty food. Thanks Panca!!!

Loved it! Recommended by Peruvian friends. As good as eating in Lima. Casual place, nothing fancy... very honest, down to earth atmosphere. Very nice place and good service.

Bad immitation of Peruvian Food

I went to Pardos craving for “pollo a la brasa” (chicken) but to my disappointment I found that Pardo’s had become Panca, a bad imitation of Peruvian food. The “arroz con mariscos” did not have much seafood and was quite tasteless and expensive. (18$) not to mention that the portion was very small. I am Peruvian and I can tell Panca lacks of good Peruvian food. Although the service was great I wouldn’t go back there. Pardo’s had mostly good Peruvian Food, why on earth did they decide to bring a “new concept “ in? IT DOESN’T WORK!

We ordered five or six plates of tapas and loved them all. Remarkably fresh ingredients and delicious sauces. The octopus melted in my mouth (did I just type that?). The warm, smiling staff made the evening a genuine pleasure.

Very good, I love the ceviche taste so taste and fresh. ANd the prices are not really expensive as other with the same food quality. For example in Miami the have a restaurant like this and the ceviche cost $40.00. This price was one year ago. Excelent. Keep going peruviana
