One of my favourite curry houses in Hemel. Portions are good, as is the food and the service. The restaurant itself is beginning to look a bit tired now but that's only a minor gripe.

I have been many times to this restaurant in Hemel Hempstead so my review wont be based on pure ignorance like so many seem to be based on TA. However...The comments regarding having to wait are quite accurate. Service is rarely quick here based on my experience. This is the big downside to The Guru and I wish the manager... More

Have been eating here for 20 years and I am surprised at some of the comments. Yes there are more authentic Indian restaurants in London but personally I have never had a bad meal here and have always found the staff very friendly. Then again we do interact in a friendly manner with them. Gourmet Nights always great value.

I have eaten in a fair few Indian restaurants and this is by far the worst. Staff were unhelpful, basically ignored us completely. Food took forever to be served and was only average. Drinks were served wrong and ridiculously warm (coke and lemonade!) When dinner was eventually served they plonked it on the table, didn't bother to offer us a... More

Worthy of a far higher place in the listings. Its banquet menu from Sunday to Thursday is incredibly good value as are the drinks. Food is freshly cooked to order and worth waiting for

Do not go here if you are in a rush! They have a tiny kitchen and so meals can take a little longer than normal when they are full. The food is very nice and it is very good value for money. I do like this place but it can be hit and miss on service.

I've visited this restaurant many times, but recently things have taken a nose dive into desperation!! The food was absolutely awful. Flavourless and spice less. This was once the highlight of Hemel curry houses! I visited K2 for the first time a few weeks ago and it was a great experience, but I found myself drawn back to the guru......big... More
