There are two Peruvian restaurants that are near my company, already tried El Rocoto so my friends and I decided to come to the legendary El pollo Inka. The interior design was quite unique aztecan style with a touch of modern club lights, by these I meant that there were a lot of black neon lights. I decided to order... More

This is a preferred location to the Hermosa Beach restaurant for general quality. I've rated both as 4-stars, but my experience is that this location is a bit better, more consistent and servicing a lot of return customers. Head this way if you have the time!

I frequently go here with friends and family for reasonably priced and tasty Peruvian food. I even had my retirement party here. Also, I love the murals of Machu Picchu and colonial Peru. The chicken soup is delicious. I have done Salsa classes here or sometimes just watched the dancing. This place is popular with cops so don't be nervous... More

This food is very tasty and a great value. Soup, entrees are delicious and the portions appropriate. Service can be slow but worth the food. Take your time and enjoy the food

Sometimes, as a red blooded man, you just have to eat a whole punch of meat and rice. When one gets a powerful lust like this, you just have to go to El Pollo Inka. We went down for a power lunch one day and to talk shop. Unfortunately we were sidetracked by the incredible volume delicious chicken and UV... More

This gem offers a wide range of Peruvian dishes that will satisfy almost anyone. Beef, chicken, seafood and vegetarian options are offered. The pricing is low for the quality of the meal. I had the special: 1/2 chicken, soup, salad, roll and rice for $10--it was delicious and satisfying. If you find yourself in the Los Angeles area, El Pollo... More

Great Peruvian Food! Working near this restaurant is an absolute plus! Their food is excellent and really hits the spot. Whether you have the rotisserie chicken (inexpensive and plentiful) or one of the more complicated dishes, everything is well prepared. Taste the green sauce before using it...sometimes it is HOT...but it is always delicious! I especially love the chicken stir-fry... More

We were visiting California from Washington state and this restaurant was recommended to us. We visited at lunch on a Wednesday and it was very busy but no wait. We were seated immediately and waited about about two minutes for drinks but they didn't arrive until about 10 minutes later, at which time we gave our order. We were told... More
