“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

My wife and I had never had Peruvian food before. The restaurant is located in an outdoor mall with a lovely view of the parking lot. It is small (30 or so seats), spotlessly clean, and cheerfully decorated with Peruvian themed wall illustrations. They had switched to a buffet style a couple of days before we visited so we were able to try a wide variety of dishes including ceviche, a fish dish in which raw snapper (in this case) is "cooked" in lime juice: delicious. Other dishes included rotisserie chicken, beef and chicken stews, a really good chicken soup, fried fish with "frite" style fried potatoes, and cold salad items including cold potatoes (potatoes are native to Peru). Some dishes were mildly spicy but there were no "mouth-burners". The waiter is Peruvian by birth and was happy to explain how all the dishes were prepared along with providing excellent table service. Desserts included a Peruvian version of creme caramel and a fruit pudding, both of which my wife pronounced excellent.
They also do takeout and have a lunch buffet which the waiter told us had 95% of the dinner buffet at a better price. I expect Inti will have to relocate to larger premises soon judging by the people walking in who said they'd been there before. We will definitely return.

“Great Peruvian food”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

We recently had a most enjoyable meal at Inti. We attended with friends, having made a reservation, given the reviews the restaurant has had. The place is very clean, and bright, decorated with Peruvian art. Tables are nicely spaced so that conversation is easy without interruption from neighbouring tables. Four of us shared a monstrous appy (sausage and papas fritas) which was very tasty - a meal could be made of this alone. We each had separate meals, all were well prepared and our waitress was very pleasant and took all the time we need to explain the menu items. Some of the items are quite spicy but very tasty. There is certainly something for everyone at this nice NE Calgary restautant. WE have been toother Peruvian restaurants, but this has been the best so far. We will certainly return.

“Lucky to have Inti”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

Truly excellent Peruvian food. My wife and I waited many years to see a Peruvian Restaurant open in Calgary but Inti blew us away and far exceeded our expectations. Having visited Peru I know that this food is authentic and outstanding. I loved the Lomo Saltado that I tried, the Papas a la Huancaina and the Ceviche were amazing.
Great service, reasonable prices but food that draws you back for more.
