Quick lunch!

Fantastic food and very friendly chef. I would definitely go back when I'm in Edmonton again. Butter chicken samosas and pakora shrimp. Both excellent.

Indian typically is not seen as fine dining but Guru takes it to that level. I am addicted to the butter chicken here but have not had a single bad dish. Everything on the menu is delicious and the flavours balance nicely.

We have never been to The Guru for a meal before so we had no initial expectations other than to try a new resturant. We had the Butter Chicken Samosa, Tandorri Chicken, Steamed Rice, and the Palak Paneer Chilgoza with a glass of Red Wine. Our meal was outstanding and the atmosphere in the resturant was warm and welcoming! We... More

We enjoyed lunch here recently. Service was fine. The food was tasty. We had samosas and tried the butter chicken ones this restaurant is renowned for as well as the vegetarian ones. I admit I preferred the vegetarian ones but we all found the amount of samosa wrapper to be a bit overwhelming. The cilantro yogurt and hot pepper sauce... More

This was my second visit to Guru. The portions are plentiful. Expect to go home with leftovers. The cauliflower 65 is highly recommended and the mango chicken was very flavourful. The staff are so attentive: not only did the manager come by to ask how we were enjoying our food, one of the chefs did as well.

Fabulous!!!! I can't say enough to describe how good the food is. We had the beef vindaloo and it was wonderful and they didn't make it too hot. The garlic naan bread is huge and so tasty and we also had the cauliflower appetizer which was so tasty.

We knew the food and service would be excellent but what we experienced when we took 10 of our consultants from the US out for dinner far far exceeded our expectations. Gurjeet and Deeprendra went way beyond with a greeting on their electronic display, personalized menus, background information regarding the origin of each dish..... Our best restaurant experience ever. Just... More

So 3 of us popped in for tea and ordered starters and main meals. The starters of Butter Chicker Samosas were lovely and large servings, the Indian poutine was also lovely. I ordered a chicken korma as its my favourite dish in the UK, very creamy and coconutty. The meal I was given was nice and clearly fresh but very... More

The only things I didn't like about Guru were the prices (and the men's washroom could be better ventilated) but for this level of quality and service - a five star meal, you pay a five star price. Anything with paneer in it is amazing - though next time I'd ask if they could throw in a little more paneer.... More
