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.

We just left the Guru Restaurant as very full, extremely happy guests. The food, the service (including manager Jeet) and the overall experience made it one of the best meals we've ever had! And that means something as my husband is in the catering business himself and we've eaten curries in England, Germany and Canada. We thoroughly recommend this restaurant... More

This restaurant is a great place - the service was great and the food (had the chicken shooters for an appetizer, entrees were butter chicken, spicy beef and the shrimp with coconut rice ) was fantastic ! I wish the portions were a little bigger as had there been 4 guys eating vs 2 guys and 2 ladies - we... More

Definately my favourite indian restaurant ever! Everything is so tasty but i particularly recommend the beef vindaloo and garlic naan. Service is excellent, very friendly and informative. Only bad thing i'd say is nearly $60 for a take away for 2 people is way too expensive. I can get a chinese take away for $25. Wish they had a seperate... More
