“Love It!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2012

My highly recommended appetizer dish for 2 is the Ceviche Mixto. If you like seafood with lime and a kick, this is it...

And I really really like Seafood Paella. On yum yum yum.. Lots of seafood and the tastiest cilantro rice. Always more than I can eat in one sitting.

AS you dine of great food, drink Cristal. The Peruvian beer that is light......

This is a cozy atmosphere and you can also eat outside. I have only visited the Lake Forest location....

“Good, but Norry's is better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

My server was very friendly and helpful - no complaints there. The atmostphere was pleasantly upscale for a peruvian resteraunt. An average entree will run you around $15.

I got the Paella (the menu said it was the best seller). The fish and muscle were very tasty, but the rest was rather bland with the exception of being too salty. I also got a side of Yucca but the portion was on the small side. The green sauce was excellent - if only I had more Yucca to dip.

I prefer Norry's resteraunt which is one block away. If you get the Paella there, you will get twice as much for the same price and your mind will be blown by the variety of ingredients and tastes in one plate. Also the ceveche is as good as it gets outside of Peru. Norry's is authentic with a unique flair - the downside is that it doesn't have the upscale atmosphere of Inka Grill. I might be back to give it another shot because it is open later than Norry's on weekdays.

“Great food... Cozy atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

The atmosphere is small and cozy (if you choose to sit inside as opposed to the outdoor seating). The selection is vast, quality is good and pricing is fair.

“Great little place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2010

The sauces on the food are what make this place. The lamb stew is excellent. The sea food dishes are good too. Beef and chicken - not so much. The only downside is that they don't sell the lucima ice cream anymore!
