The food was great. They gave us a little plate with some kind of salsa or something, it was spicy, but the taste was really good. Good service and we where served pretty fast.

Went twice, both visits disappointed. It may be Peruvian, but it is not fine dining. Out of their best selling wine, beer served without glass, then brought glass filled with ice. The Saviche, Peru's national dish, was a mess drenched in lime, tasting more like concentrated acid. Generous portion, but $18.00??? Two TVs running with 2 different programs. Had to... More

Ten of us had a mini class reunion. The food was delicious. And the service was wonderful. Our servers were so kind and helpful. I had the pollo braza and the flan. Our party tried out a little bit of everything. Ceviche, loma saltido, yucca, plantains, Inka Cola, and more. No one had any complaints. Definitely recommend this place!

Located in a strip mall on 38th street. I had the Seco de Carne con Frejoles. Beans, a potato, rice, sauce, peas and carrots, and some very tender chunks of beef. Wonderful comfort food. My stomach was very happy. My wife had the Pollos ala Braza (their signature dish), it was wonderful too. The chicken was infused with flavor. My... More

Very authentic Peruvian food from the cerviche (seafood marinated in lime juice and cilantro and onion) to chicha morada (refreshing drink made from purple corn and pineapple). The portions are generous and good prices. The name will be changing it Inca in near future.

We were traveling through Indianapolis and wanted to eat something different. We saw this restaurant and since we have never had Peruvian food thought we'd give it a try. It is a very nice clean restaurant. We both got seafood dishes since they really talk them up. Mine was a mixture of different seafood. It was all cook perfect. There... More
