Very wide range of menu choices, reasonable prices and good portions. The shrimp chowder was incredible and the curry chicken excellent. I am returning with or without the Groupon.

substituted cabbage for french fries. When dish arrived there were no tomatoes. Waitress said when using cabbage then no tomatoes. It didn't indicate I was substituting cabbage for french fries AND tomatoes. Won't be back. There are too many other good peruvian restaurants in the area.

We had a wonderful meal and I enjoyed the ambiance. I do think the prices are a little high. Using the groupon made it more affordable.

From Our Editors

Ana Maria Montoya Kishihara first landed on American soil in the early 1980s, bringing along her two young children, the traditional Peruvian recipes of her mother and grandmother, and a dream to start her own restaurant. She opened up Inka Grill in 1996, stocking its kitchen with fresh ingredients and setting up a wood-fired rotisserie to roast juicy Peruvian chicken dishes. Today, Ana’s daughter has taken over the family business, whipping up the authentic the Criolla recipes passed down from the three generations of women before her.

Amid the smoky rotisserie and bubbling pots of stew in the Inka Grill kitchen, chefs whip up fresh fish ceviches, savory steak stir-fry saltados, and flavorful seafood paellas. They pair heaping scoops of rice and beans with their rotisserie chicken, a poultry that reporters from Orange County Weekly lauded as “so juicy from tail to sternum you can barely tell the dark from the white.” Servers tote sizzling platters to the dining room, where vivid paintings of Peruvian children adorn the walls and a soft flute plays traditional Peruvian songs, i.e., Wham! covers. The staff pours glasses of the traditional chicha morada corn drink and presents cans of imported Inca Kola to quench the spice of their ultra-spicy green aji sauce, which the chefs have lightheartedly dubbed “Gringo Killer”.
