Open Tables did not indicate that this restaurant does not give points. I always book through Open Table to get the points. I need to take this restaurant off my list. That's too bad as I liked it, but I like my points more.

Food and service were excellent. Prices are very good. Music was too loud. We asked for it to be lowered and they did accommodate our request. We enjoyed it so much we're returning again this weekend with other friends.

Excellent food and large portions! If you ask for spicy, you get SPICY! Definitely recommended. You want to try so many different things, and that can pricey pretty fast; so pace yourself.. it is definitely a place worth going back to, so try a dish or two now and then try something else on your next visit or you'll go broke in one sitting!

Absolutely recommend Inkanto! Great for relaxed family dinners, gathering place for friends, and location for parties. Family friendly music plays, matching the theme. Televisions visible for sports and cooking shows. My family and I found this location by chance. Now we look for reasons to go. The location is family run, which positively spills over into the service. All staff are professional and welcoming. We always feel like VIPs when we go. The food is authentic and delicious. Everything is cooked to perfection. The price matches the portions. The staff is also very thorough regarding dietary restrictions and allergies. This is a "must experience" restaurant. Enjoy!

Went with a party of 10 for Mother’s Day and got great service. Food was typical Peruvian and was tasty at a great price. Nice atmosphere, more upscale than casual.

Wonderful restaurant with great staff and exceptional food. We will be back often.
Only one complaint; why the TV sets? They are ugly and distracting. No one was watching them but they distract one’s attention and detract from the atmosphere. Please consider removing them.

The food here is always very good. I would make one suggestion and that would be to season the plain white rice. It is too bland with no seasonings. Otherwise, everything was excellent. My sea bass was baked to perfection. The appetizers are also excellent. This was our second visit and I will definitely go there again!

Yum as always; this place never disappoints. SO many other Peruvian restaurants in the area have closed recently; it's a comfort to know that INKANTO is still going strong. Love the fact that you can add avocado to ANY entree. Desserts are always exceptional.

Enjoyed our meal a Inkanto. Service was a bit slow at the beginning of the meal, but not enough to be problematic. All four diners had seafood or fish dishes, and all were very good.

Food and service was okay. I liked it more before they changed ownership. The previous owner is still the cook until she retires. Might go downhill after that.

It was quiet during lunch time on Sunday.. for a party of 3, the prices was a bit higher than expected. About $75. Regardless, all the food that we got was delicious and authentic. The waitress was attentive and was very quick with getting us refills on sauces, etc. Would definite revisit and check it out during dinner time.. oh. And it’s a BYOB. Great...

This was out first visit and my children's first attempt at Peruvian food and they were very happy . Restaurant is open and bright feels a bit impersonal but after that there are no negatives( well a bar would be nice ) . The appetizers alone can give you a great meal the empanadas were perfect and the shrimp soup was enough for 2 . Every main course was tasty but did not come out quick and seemed like the waitress needed help alone in the whole place.

Try It though you will enjoy it

I'm sure this place is great for family members and friends of the family, but 2 entrees and 2 apps plus tip ran us about $100. We got rice. Not much else, but various iterations of rice. The staff was very nice, but for the price, it was a first and last.

This is probably the first Latin American fusion restaurant that I've officially been to; but it shouldn't be. After all, it you like meat, chicken, rice, beans --and who doesn't--then you'll find yourself in good hands at Inkanto. A good place to bring a huge party. Everything we had was enjoyable.

We decided we wanted to try a new restaurant... so we searched online and found Inkanto. This was a wonderful find...we brought tequila and ordered a fresh margarita mix to go with it that was crisp and tart. The meal was fabulous, do not miss the mussels in green sauce (two of the four of us ordered it) while my husband had the ceviche appetizer. For an entree he had the Bouillabaisse while I had the shrimp with pasta both delicious. For desserts we ordered one apple pie a la mode, a yellow cake with cream, a light and airy pastry with cream and soft cookies all delicious. The staff were attentive and friendly and the owner is there to great you. Loved it!

Great night and the reinvented Inkanto. The food is as good as ever, but there is a new spirit, a new vibe along with a new owner.

On a happening Saturday night with a couple of big tables, the service was a bit uneven, but most of the food was amazing! The Choros a la Chalaca, a cold mussel appetizer, is one of the best in New Jersey. Fresh large mussels topped with tons of onions, tomatoes and cilantro...YUM. The Chicharron de Cerdo, (pork) was delicious as was the beef empanada.


All in all we had a great time and highly recommend this Hazlet gem of a restaurant!!
