This place is very good. I enjoyed the chicken rice dish. The others in my party thought the food was fantastic. Nice atmosphere great service and very busy.

You get a chicken soup as a starter and I mst say, I loved it! We had chicken and lamb and one could tell that both dishes were freshly made and very good. I'm glad we went there.

This is our favorite restaurant when visiting Redondo Beach area. The Peruvian chicken is so moist and tasty. I especially like adding their spicy sauce to their plantains. All of the food we have eaten here has been excellent.

Finally tried after several visits to Hermosa Beach. Don't be fooled by the Retail Strip location. Casual atmosphere, great service, and a menu with a lot of great options (hard to make a choice).

This place was conveniently located next to my hotel. I like to try new things and am glad I did. This little nugget is worth eating at again and again. The food was awesome along with the atmosphere and the staff. It was kinda like Mexican food but different and better. My dish was the Col Saltado, it had cabbage... More

I have been eating at this El Pollo Inka location for over 10 years now. My family and I have come to know the staff so well, that if one of us comes in without the rest of the family, they always ask us where they are and how they're doing. The food is beyond incredible- their rice and chicken... More

My wife and I come here every couple months. We've always visited with a Groupon, so check into that before you come. It's a small-ish restaurant- maybe 15-20 tables and sometimes has live musicians. While we like the music, we often sit in the back away from them as otherwise it's very loud and hard to talk to each other.... More

I was treated by good friends and this was just simply a perfect way to end my time in PB/HB. Menu is plentiful and the wait staff is very friendly! Must come back!

I love food from El Pollo Inka. They all have a consistent flavor between the restaurants. I am giving them a average rating because their service isn't up to par with the rest of their restaurants. Yes, they took our order and gave us our drinks, then disappeared. No "how is your meal?" The next time we had a waiter... More

By nature, I'm not much for deep fried anything. And, despite the fact that the restaurant has "pollo" in the title, we went for seafood. My husband and I shared the Jalea which was the breaded fried fish with shrimp and squid topped with lime marinated onions. We also had one or two fried oysters which are not to our... More
