    We had this restaurant on our list for ages so decided to try it. The ambience is lovely& romantic but the tiled floor adversely affected the acoustics. It was busy and it was hard to hear. The waiter was attentive and quite friendly. Our Kir Royales were awful but everything else was good. The food was unusual but delicious. My lemon sole was perfect. My partner’s octopus excellent too. Wine was good as was the Peruvian white cocktail. Happy customers in the restaurant said everything about it. Not cheap but worth the experience.

    We took the "Peruvian experience" tasting menu and were very impressed with the quality of the food. Particularly delicious highlights were the tuna crudo and the sea bass cooked over charcoal. Chicama deserves a bigger restaurant.

    Food was not value for money severely over price. Potions are ridiculously small, and to top it off the added service charge of £34 I was not happy at all. Total paid out for dinner was £310 and had to get something on the way home yo eat. Wouldn't go back!

    Set tasting menu at £60 is fair value and v good .....but food otherwise significantly overpriced imo if ordering a la carte Dinner with 2-3 cocktails and no wine ends up being £100 ish

    We had the tasting menu and I would definitely recommend! Good to try a bit a bit of everything and good value (considering the price of indocial dishes). If you have a particularly hungry eating partner then you might need more food, but overall it was sufficient for 2 (but not loads). The only thing that didn’t wow us was the dessert, which we agreed was mediocre, but all the other dishes were wonderful. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere We came dressed quite fancy as did other diners, but some were in jeans.

    It is definitely not a Peruvian restaurant! The ceviche had soja sauce! And was not good at all :( And no canchitas! We had a good time it was just not what I was expecting from a “Peruvian” restaurant that seems more like a “fusion of Asian food with a Peruvian Name - Chicama!

    Seafood and vegetable Sharing menu. Small dishes brought to the table as they are ready. I do not enjoy this type of presentation which is becoming increasingly popular in restaurants. Always leave feeling I paid for much more food than I ate. Service was very good. Some interesting sauces. Skip the ceviche-which IMO should always be the best dish at a Peruvian restaurant. The whole meal felt like work with inadequate reward.

    We hd a good night - the food and presentation was delicious. The waiters were a bit too rushed and it felt rushed to have the plates cleared even though we werent finished with it . Very attentive though and polite. The music was a bit too loud and overall noise levels were quite high for an intimate dinner atmosphere. Great food(tasting menu) overall would recommend. Overall costs (incld a bottle of wine slightly too high)

    Had a really lovely birthday dinner at Chicama. The food was excellent, the cocktails yummy and loved the touch of the frozen glass. The staff also made a nice deal of my birthday which was very sweet. The interior of the restaurant is also gorgeous and I'd definitely recommend.

    Very little spot in Chelsea, with fresh fish. The service is quite friendly and food is good. We had some plates to share to between starters, mains and vegetables. Food is rich with lots of sour notes such as lime, lemon and vinegar. If you don’t like sour taste maybe not the right spot for you. Overall was a good experience.

    Great food. Its peruvian inspired food, not traditional peruvian food. Set expectations clear. But the pisco sour and the chicano (this last one is not on the menu) are fantastic.

    The food was seriously delicious. We had the sea bass, cavolo nero, black rice and corn ribs from the main menu to share and everything was spectacular and flavorful. All this plus a drink was enough for 2 people and we spent about £100. Highly recommend!

    Had an excellent experience. Service from Corina and the team was first rate. They work well together. The cocktails were superb. The menu is served as a sharing concept so you can order as you go. Food is prepared very quickly. All dishes were delicous, if we had one small criticism, it would be that the octopus and the cavolo nero were a little too salty, but that may be down to personal taste. It's great to be able to watch the chefs at work. There's a lively atmosphere in the place. We recommend highly. This was our second visit and are looking forward to our next. We are working our way through the menu LOL.
