I am Peruvian and an excellent cook myself, so when I rate this place you can be sure this is true Peruvian cuisine. I was very excited when I drove past Sardis under construction a few weeks ago and I was fortunate to have my husband in the area today since we live in the NE and he picked up a few things. My husband reports the place is very clean, modern, efficient and professional with a friendly english speaking staff. The food was great, properly cooked pollo ala brasa and well seasoned in its traditional style. They also serve ceviche and make it fresh right there, which is a good sign (you will have to wait about 10-15 if you order ceviche). It was also very good. They serve several common Peruvian dishes you would expect to see in a quick, casual Peruvian restaurant. They also carry a few american sandwiches as well. This place is well worth the trip and it represents the only true Peruvian restaurant in the Philadelphia area (we have tried every place in Philly which claims to be Peruvian)! Enjoy!
So I finally made my first trip to Sardis based on the great reviews. I enjoyed my 1/2 chicken with plantains and peruvian rice. My bf got the deluxe mixed platter. I tried his shrimp and steak which were good as well. My kids wanted fries and corn on the cob. The corn was plastic like and inedible. Their sauces are very good.. I like the green the best. Overall it was good but the only thing I cant figure out is how it cost $60. Chicken 11. 50 mixed platter 18 two corn 4 two small fries 3.50 each 3 sodas 2 each. Thats $47 plus tax is around $51. My only guess is we were charged for each sauce. I dont have a problem with that necessarily, but we had to ask where to order and asked a few questions about the food so it was obvious it was our first time. If that was the case a warning each sauce is $1 extra wouldve been nice. Ill go back for the food, but next time Ill make sure what Im paying for.
Best Pollo a la brasa in the city by far. This town needs more places like this so PLEASE go here over an over so they open more. I am from Philadelphia and I truly love it, but the variety of takeout food is incredibly poor (unless you are talking sandwiches or pizza). I lived in DC for 10 years, and when I moved back here one of the things I missed the most is good Peruvian chicken. Some incredibly awful places like Barbacoa in Ardmore advertise that they are Peruvian style - but it is total crap. NEVER go there. For the price of a meal for 1 person at Barbacoa you can get a meal for a family of 4 at Sardis. Thank GOD Sardis decided to expand from DC/Maryland to Philly. Please go here - get a 1/4 chicken white with Yucca (ask for fresh) and black beans and rice. You wont be sorry. I am in no way affiliated with Sardis - just a fan of good takeout food.
I have been to Peruvian restaurants and agree with the other reviewers who have eaten at Peruvian restuarants as well. The food was ok. The chicken was pretty tender and flavorful, the fried rise had nice flavor, the plantains were not good (they were not the soft melt in your mouth consistency that is usual...most were hard as if perhaps under ripe plantains were used). I was not a fan of the fries under heat lamps, as I love fries and find the taste and consistency not good when left like that. The staff was friendly, service was fast. Its a nice alternative to some of the other restuarants near and better food than many of them as well, so good for every now and then. Id like to try some of the other sides and dishes, so will return.
This place absolutely ROCKS !! Authentic Peruvian with a HUGE menu. Service is very friendly, and the portions are VERY generous. Fresh food (mostly grilled over REAL hardwood lump charcoal.) The signature, pollo ala brasa is not to be missed, but I could make a meal out of their white rice alone (though beans are a nice addition.) Plantains are caramelized and even the string beans are to die for. Prices are very reasonable for the quality and freshness of ingredients (as well as the portions.)
They changed. I used to get two free sauces with a large side order but one of the workers now are telling me I no longer get sauces with a side. Its bad enough the food isnt cheap. But now I have to pay extra for sauces that makes the food taste better?!?!?!? Theyve just lost a customer for life. Go to Boston Market next door instead. They have better chicken anyway.

Buen lugar para comer comida peruana. Porciones grandes en un sitio acogedor y limpio. Staff amable no todos bilingues pero igual se esfuerzan por ayudar. 5 estrellas!

I just wish it was closer to center city. The chicken is really good and an excellent price for what you end up getting. There is a large selection of south American sodas and the horchata water is good too. There are multiple options for sides: rice, beans, veggies,etc. Friendly service :) the restaurant is super clean. Excellent
I just ate there for the second time I chose the lamb chops you get 4 but they are baby size lamb chops so there really equivalent to one but over all everything was great I just wont waste my money buying the lamb chops again...but if it wasnt for my experience with the lamb it would definitely have 4 out of 5 for me..
Dining at Sardis is always a pleasure. Service is very fast and friendly, and the food is always delicious, well seasoned, and fresh. I have dined at all times of day and night, and all these factors remain constant. The only real downside is that you may have a bit of a wait because they can get busy.
Food was tasty but not very hot. Would probably come back if they turn down the blaring music....couldnt have a conversation over the music. Chicken was a little dry. Mixed veggies were frozen so they were mushy. Large portions but you pay for them $16.00 for 1/2 chicken dinner for 1 person.
After a 14 hour work day, I can pick up a dinner for 4 in ten minutes that tastes home-cooked. Everything is delicious; the whole chicken with two sides is seasoned perfectly along with being an amazing deal. Im addicted and will probably keep going back until I try everything on the menu.
