“I would not go again”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

I went to this with my wife.
They asked us if we had a reservation even though it was empty.
The food was blah.
Nice decor. It is clean. Just the food is not that good.

“Nice decor, good food and service with a reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

Tried some interesting and traditional Indian food. Very nice environment. For two people, we had three dishes and non-alcoholic beverage for $60 is reasonable.

“Overpriced and mediocre”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

We've eaten here before, but tonight's meal fell far short of our expectations. The server was brusque and overworked. The food, while acceptable, wasn't really anything to write home about. For what you pay at Guru, I think you should expect a lot more. There are several far superior Indian food options in town

“The best Indian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

When we first looked at the menu it was a surprise to see a range of different dishes rather than your run of the mill food.
Deependra the owner and executive chef is very passionate about his menu and invited us to try a couple of the starters before deciding upon our order. The Butter Chicken was so good and probably the best starter ever that we incorporated it into our main meal as well.
Deependra kept coming out of the kitchen to make sure we were happy with everything and it is these little touches coupled with the excellent waitress service that made the whole evening a great experience.
Once other thing and I don't know if it is on the menu yet - but ask for the Nan bread mixed with Belgian chocolate and Coconut for dessert - magnificent.
