This food was really, really good. I did, however, find it a little pricey for what you got. Typically, I don't mind paying higher prices for really, really good food, but I have other favorite Indian restaurants in town that charge less for similar quality food. Two of us dined with no drinks other than water, and the bill came... More

First trip here for my daughter's birthday supper with the family, five adults and two children. Lovely décor, good music. We had garlic and plain nan while we waited for everyone to arrive. We started with two vegetable samosas and two butter chicken samosas (the chef actually gave us 3 chicken as he said they were small - they weren't)... More

Guru is one of the best resturants for Indian cuisine ( that catered to allergies) and with my allergies that is not an easy task. I discovered this little gem a few years back and it has never let me down. I have gone for a nice date out, ordered takeout and stopped by on the fly never any issues... More

My wife and I have been dining at Guru since they first opened. We eat out quite regularly and we always look forward to returning to Guru. The manager, Jeet, and the service staff always go above and beyond to make us feel welcome. I think most of the staff could order for my wife and pick all her favorites... More

We eat here often, at least 10 times a year. We usually love it but this week 2 big issues bothered us. The server was shockingly inept, the only times she showed up, she kept trying to remove our plates and the food, though it should have been clear we were not done She should have at least asked. Then... More

Lucky for us we came during summer. We didn't have reservations and were seated right away. Our server, Madison, was very helpful and provided insights to the various dishes on the menu. You have to try the Chicken shooters, they are so good and unexpected. The butter chicken samosas are the plumpest samosas I've ever eaten. They are loaded, it's... More

The food at this restaurant is truly remarkable and is the basis of my "excellent" rating. We had the Lamb vindaloo which was very tender. The menu said the level of heat was high, but we didn't find it all that hot. In fact, the spicing was very subtle; and what's more, we could actually taste the lamb (something that... More

Superb service and food! The staff treated my two children to a hands on lesson in how to prepare and bake naan bread, to top it off they were given what they made to take home. The food was absolutely savored by the whole family! If in Edmonton, I highly recommend this amazing west end gem!

Try their butter chicken poppers and deep fried cauliflower starters . . . . awesome. Misha our server was super friendly and efficient. This is a higher end Indian Restaurant looking more like a steak house. Super clean throughout. All dishes served hot. I tried their Rajasthani Lamb Curry and pula rice - perfectly cooked. The Naan bread was superb.
