Tucked away in one of the many malls is our favorite Peruvian restaurant (me and my Peruvian wife) in Orange County. The prices here are reasonable, portions generous and the preparation of the food is way above average. I would avoid this place at peak...More

Although the food was fine the quality of the preparation was slightly below the other Peruvian place in FV. Staff was not genuine to those who weren't of South American descent. Again, I don't really care but the other place is not like that.

Great Peruvian dishes to try - Chaufa marisco, chichar pollo, fried platano, that go well with Cuzquena beer and the very spicy dip sauce. The restaurant also offers kid menu, and that is a plus for family dining. The owner is very helpful and she...More

This is a good lunch and dinner spot. Very accommodating staff who are happy to explain the dishes. Food is flavorful and very fresh. Quiet interior and a small bar. Good for lunch meetings or dinners.

I've been to Peru four times and the food at Inka Cantina compares very favorably with the food I've enjoyed in Lima and Cuzco. Owners are from Peru and very pleasant to talk with. Lomo Soltado is my favorite but everything we've tried, and they...More

We have eaten here many times. There is something for everyone: omnivores, pescatarians, and vegetarians. You can have filling appetizers if you are not that hungry or you can get a full dinner, which in my case results in lunch the next day. Many of...More
