Asian gastronomy has conquered publics all around the world, and it has made no exception in Peru, a country with a very high percentage of Asian immigration (and obviously of inhabitants of Asian descent). But Peru is a country with culinary influences from virtually all around the world, and Asian restaurants in Lima also show some of these influences, with many Asian-Peruvian fusion dishes.
The two largest Asian populations in Lima are by far Chineses and Japaneses, so you will find lots of popular Chinese restaurants, whose Peruvian versions are commonly called "chifas". One of the largest and most luxury ones is Restaurante Royal, located in the heart of San Isidro, with special dishes and also a buffet for lunch time.
Another famous "chifa" is Wa Lok, located in the local ChinaTown (in Lima Downtown) but with branches in other districts too.
In San Isidro, not very far from Restaurante Royal, will find Señor Limón, not exactly a 100% Asian restaurant, but most of the dishes have some kind of Asian influence.
Japanese restaurants have also spread quickly in the city, with famous spots like Niqei, Edo or Hanzo (Traditional and Fusion), and Matsuei (the oldest and the most traditional), among others.
And another excellent place for Asian food is O-Mei, dedicated to Thai and Vietnam gastronomy, as well as to some regional China cuisine.
