Great Indian food in Lima

I tried Guru after being disappointed by Mantra. I really enjoyed my food - vegetarian samosas, shahi paneer and garlic naan. The shahi paneer comes with rice, no need to order it separately. I ordered my food medium and while it had spicy flavor it was not at all hot. I would order it hot next... read more

I have gone to Guru several times, and I'm very delighted with the dishes I have ordered. Two months ago I ordered a Safron chicken (cream based preparation) and today I asked for a Karahi chicken (vegetables in won and then put in stew). I was amazed by the scents and flavours. You can ask if you like no spice,... More

Start with garlic naan and samosa beef with their delicious chilcano drink! Then try their coconut beef curry. The service is good and friendly, very fast & sufficient. My husband and I go there at least twice a month.

Navratan Veg, Chappati, Naan, Samosa - Disappointing The only saving grace was Hot Indian Cardomom Chai and the spicy Dal Tadka. Overall, not a satisfactory experience.

Try the chicken tikka massala and the beer! Everything is just delightful, beside its location is the best, near to San Borja and Miraflores.

I liked everything from the drinks to the curries. Everything we ordered was very good. Although we had to wait some minutes, it was totally worth it, so if you're planning to go try to go early to get a table.

Food is ok, not very original but fine. but last night we wanted to go there (2 persons) and we had to wait because it was full. Afterwards a group of 4 people came and suddenly a small table got free. The waiter preferred inviting the 4 persons because obviously they will order more than we do. Any good restaurant... More

Excellent food is what they prepare here and the host is very friendly. I always end up ordering the Jalfreezi and the Vindaloo curries. Both excellent choices. Together with the Garlic naan you can't go wrong here

As a big fan of Indian food in the US, I craved for some Indian food while in Lima. The food did not disappoint me. I tried the classic chicken tikka masala and butter chicken as well as some samosas and mango lasi. Very rich flavor with a minimal hint of Peruvian style seasoning that just made the meal delicious.

Although this restaurant has few tables (better you call for a reservation), it has a nice variety of dishes from India and Pakistan, including breads and lassi. It is attended by his owner, Wahid. We also enjoy the desserts, specially the one made with carrots. The decoration is modest, and you can see Indian video clips. Prices are moderate, compared... More
