Welcome to Inca Ponsonby, where Latin America meets Asia.

Critically acclaimed chef Nic Watt has drawn inspiration from South American street food and East Asian cuisine to bring you INCA.

INCA is inspired by Nic Watt’s travels to Peru where he studied the art of Nikkei cuisine, specifically looking at the influence of Japanese pioneers migrating to Peru at the end of the 19th century.

The roots of this cultural cuisine fusion lie in the significance that both the Japanese and Peruvian traditions hero fresh fish, which is something Nic wanted to ensure complemented the INCA menu.


INCA takes reservations for our main dining area and chef kitchen counter, for you to enjoy a full meal and drinks experience. The bar and heated terrace seating area open for all walk in customers.
