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 does not mind explaining the dishes. There is ample parking spaces, and the area is...

What a surprise to find this place buried in a giant mall with excellent Peruvian fare. My wife is Peruvian and we had searched unsuccessfully every place (on Yelp) within 15 miles of our hotel in Fountain Valley looking for "anticuchos" (beef heart) and were about to give up. We all know to be wary of Yelp reviews but this... More

We discovered Inka Cantina a few years ago, while walking past it to go to a neighboring Mexican Food restaurant I stopped to look at the menu. We'd never really eaten Peruvian Food, and the menu looked delicious, and looking inside the decor and atmosphere was really cool - so I talked my wife into trying it, and WOW! The... 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 have an extensive menu, has been superb.

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 the dishes are served with rice and beans and are very filling. We love the... More

This family operated restaurant offers a warm family friendly atmosphere and an interesting ethnic menu. I love the seasonings used in many of the dishes. Pictures on the menu help you decide on what to order.
