Fantastic dinner and dessert! The picante mariscos and Lomo Saltado were fantastic! The green cilantro rice did not disappoint ($1.5 charge). Dessert (Peruvian cookies and ice cream) are a treat. Excellent service, beautiful shade tree if you want to eat outside.

Went there to eat for lunch with an associate. He highly recommend it and I wasn't disappointed. I ordered their spinach basil pasta with chicken. It was excellent

Excellent service. Food very tasty. Bread before the meal comes with a very spicy and tasty dipping sauce. Highly recommended. Ambiance is friendly with outside dining under a large tree (oak?).

Inkas, is one of those places tourists rarely find and for the local tech folks from places like Blizzard Entertainment...that's just fine! This quaint little restaurant with as much outdoor as indoor seating (remember this IS southern California) has been churning out fantastic Peruvian cuisine for years, but come early because they only serve lunch! To kick things off, you'll... More

Tucked in an office zone, with a few other restaurants, Inka's serves delicious Peruvian cuisine. Outdoor seating was very comfortable, under a large tree, which was very cool and somewhat tropical. Our server was a bit harried and rushing us, so the only downside.

We live only couple of miles from this place. Many people who are eating here are regulars from near by businesses during lunch or dinner. There two hospitals near by so lot hospital employees come here. If you have come to Irvine on vacation then go to Irvine spectrum for food!

Loved the food. We are fans of Peruvian food but havent eaten enough to know well enough. But their food was tasty for sure!!! Loved the Empanadas, the passion fruit juice & the Jugoso. But what really hit the spot was the Lucuma sherbet!!! delicious!!!! Would definitely recommend!!

Knowing that I really love Peruvian food, a friend brought me here while visiting town. As many others have pointed out, the location seemed hard to find. We drove by the entrance to the business park in which it's located three times looking for a way to get in. The GPS unit we had didn't really help either, but whether... More

Not far from the Irvine Spectrum in a rather industrial area is this Inkas. It has been here a rather long time and at one time (before the Spectrum) it was one of the few nicer places to eat in this part of Irvine. It is still a great break from the run of the mill choices. I really like... More

This is a great spot to grab lunch in Irvine. The food is consistently good and the staff is friendly. Just be prepared that a lot of the Peruvian food here is heavy on the onions. Tasty, but bring some mints along if you're going back to the office and plan on meeting with anyone. They will thank me later!
