A first-rate meal in an elegant setting close to Dupont Circle. Great food, authentically Peruvian (I'm assured) and an excellent range of drinks including Peruvian and Latin American wines. Recommended.

This was an interesting choice for us. I always try Peruvian restaurants and Thai was one of the better ones I’ve tested (still of course very far from lovely homemade Peruvian food).

The yuka Frita (fried cassava) was just right. The huancaina was however disappointing (but then as mentioned earlier I’m used to homemade huancaina).

The Aji de gallina was good and filling and we got a decent portion size.

Service was good.

This was a good choice for us in Washington although I would try another Peruvian restaurant to compare.

The tradito here was amazing. It comes with three different sauces. The pisco drinks were great and so was their cebiche. I don't think you can go wrong with anything on their menu, but my favourite was the cebiche mixto.

Had dinner at Nazca Mochica last night and it definitely reminds me of meals in Peru. A couple of suggestions -- the shortrib anticuchos for an appetizer, excellent Aji de Gallina (just the right hint of spice) and very good Pescado a lo Macho. lovely little patio for outdoor seating in good weather. Very friendly staff with good recommendations. Well located in Dupont Circle area, but off the busy 17th and 14th street corridors.

It was perfect for celebrating the aniversario of my parents. We had a tasty food, the service was quite good too, and the music perfect! I loved the entrance is a nice and comfortable lobby, we even took some pics there. Overall a great place to tastes the delicious food from Peru. I was just visiting Washington for the first time, so I’d go back whenever I go to visit again.
