I ordered the Ajiaco de Pollo. The garlic flavor was quite strong, though the chicken was dry and the sauce was watery and bland. I was expecting something quite a bit spicier as indicated by the menu. The restaurant was about half full in the middle of the afternoon, and the staff was doing a good job keeping up. Very...

Love ❤️ Peruvian food! This location and the one in AlisoViejo are both excellent. Saltado beef for hubby and saltado beef noodles for me! Yummy 😋!

The restaurant is simply decorated and has one section that serves as a bar. It is family friendly, though. Despite there being hardly any other customers at 2 PM when we arrived, service was persistently slow but pleasant when our server was attending to us. This slowness was the major detractor. Food was quite good we all thought. I had... More

We went there this past Wednesday to have dinner with a dear friend that was visiting from out of town. We have never been to Inka Mama's before. We live in Long Beach, Ca, and we have had Peruvian food there a couple of times, and we really liked it. Inka Mama's in San Clemente did not disappoint. The food... More

The service is excellent. The menu and food are great. The Sangria is outstanding. Genuine Peruvian cuisine at a reasonable price. If you happen to meet the owner (Stavros), you will find him cordial, accommodating, and smiling!! Once you try this place you will return.

Start with a Pisco Sour, then as an appetizer papa a la huancaina or a ceviche (spicy). All their entrees are excellent I had the seafood rice. The waiters are absolutely wonderful. The restaurant is clean and appealing. We sat outside. A 10 on my list!

Was vacationing in California with my boyfriend who is Peruvian. I love Peruvian food and we were lucky to google and find this restaurant. We went with friends, and the food was delicious. We ordered CHAUFA DE MARISCOS, the Parihuela soup, the shrimps with garlic and the Saltado de Mariscos. All were delicious. As always, we enjoy their pisco sour... More

Our first foray into Peruvian food was a very pleasant surprise. With the help of our fabulous waitress Whitney we got a comprehensive rundown on their extensive menu. Absolutely everything we had was exceptional. The Ají sauce on bread was a good indication of the wonderful tastes to come. The honey cilantro dip for the shrimp needed to be replenished... More

This was my first time eating at a Peruvian restaurant and I found the food to be very good. Many of the dishes reminded me of a combination between Thai and Mexican and of course they can spice things up. I love spicy food and Inka Mama delivered the spice and taste that I found very enjoyable. The service was... More

This was a pleasant surprise. Does not look like much from the outside, located in a strip mall type location. The place was empty when we walked in and the interior was nothing special. What the space lacked in ambiance, the waiter made up for in personality. He was very up beat and informative. I appreciate a waiter who will... More
