Chinese restaurants in Lima are an experience not to be missed. Chinese and Peruvian cuisines have happily influenced each other, creating a kind of Chinese food that you will hardly find outside Peru. Flavors fusion, colors, mystery, and top class service, make these restaurants, locally known as “chifa”, a must for everyone, especially for foodies.
There is a chifa almost in any Lima neighborhood, so it is quite easy to find one. We are suggesting a few of the best ones, mostly in Lima, San Isidro and Miraflores.
If you are in Lima Downtown, San Joy Lao and Wa Lok are the ones to visit. There are lots of Chinese restaurants located here in the local China Town, but these ones are top class service. However, there are also many small and very affordable places, perfect for backpackers.
San isidro has some excellent chifas too, like Ming Yin, Mandarin, Royal, Lung Fung (which includes a casino) and Palacio, all of them offering a very large selection of dishes; and if you are in Miraflores, you have many great options, like Kuo Wha Gardens or Madam Tusan, among others.
Another very interesting place is Mandarin (located in San Borja) that combines a chifa, an international restaurant and a casino.
