“Friendly and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

If you live in Lima and love indian food you need this place in your life. Okay, it would probably not win any awards if it was in England but it provides tasty, fresh indian cuisine at reasonable prices. The owner is very friendly and the waiters attentive. It's a lovely, fun atmosphere (with hillarious bollywood songs and dancing being shown on loop on television screens). Give it a go...

“Distinctly Average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

I can only think the other reviewers have never tried real indian food. But this place is distinclty average, i will conceed that i like the cosy decor, very different from the glitz and glamour of many restaurants in Lima. The mango lassi was decent and the breads and small bites were good but the actual curry was very dissapointing, totally average could have come from a packet in any supermarket or would not have been out of place served on a plane after being nuked in the microwave on Indian airways economy class.

Service - standard peruvian service (i.e non existent)

“great Indian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

This is a cozy place where you can eat Indian food at its best, I go from time to time and enjoy every time. The food is very spicy, even for Peruvian standards but is it really good, all the flavor just make you want more...

“Great find for anybody missing curry in Lima”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

Anybody coming to Lima who has lived elsewhere in the world where curry is common and thought they might miss it here is in for a very pleasant surprise. After 3 visits I confidently rate Guru on par or better than many great curry places in for example London, for a taste of India and Pakistan in Lima. In my eyes it fully deserves the high ranking - probably surprisingly high rating for most Peruvians - though admittedly probably caused by a far strong foreigner (rather than Peruvian) rating public here on tripadvisor.
Atmosphere: Relaxed when you come early, though can fill up easily as it is a small place. The music videos and decorations set the scene taking you to a different continent! Service is also great, and when quieter the Pakistani owner might come over for a chat.
