An authentic Indian restaurant with an ample buffet with tasty foods. The Guru Palace has great cooks and an attentive wait staff. Went with two Indians one who is an exceptional Indian cook and this is their go to place if she is not cooking. The buffet starts with a salad bar. For those non-Indians who think a salad is...

We had great service and good food. We had the buffet and did not check out the menu. They brought us extra bread (garlic). We sat and talked for abut 3 hours and they had to finally ask us to leave :) So they could prepare for dinner. The buffet is good food and the bread is great. Traditional Indian... More

We have been to this restaurant many times, usually for the truly delicious buffet. This time we went for dinner (lentil soup, chicken vindaloo, chicken tikka masala), all good. We picked medium spiciness, and there was some heat but at a very tolerable level (we are the type who buys "mild" salsa in the stores). The meal started with pappadums... More

Great buffet. Not an extremely wide spread but does it all very nicely. The chicken curry is the Indian spicy but simple one making it a perfect company to the jeera rice. Mango lassi is awesome. Do ask them for naan. It is a part of the buffet but made fresh

The food is okay but there ethics suck! They lie! I asked how many pieces of naan bread do you receive in one order and they responded with "two", so I ordered two orders. I only received three pieces altogether. When calling them when I got home I asked how many pieces of naan bread do you get in an... More

We have been to Guru Palace twice recently for dinner, and thoroughly enjoyed it both times. Most recently we ordered Chicken Vandaloo and Shrimp Korma. Both sauces were wonderful, the potions are generous and all entrees are served with fragrant jasmine rice. The Korma sauce has a touch of coconut milk, which makes it creamy and rich. Friends ordered the... More

Very sorry I visited. Atmosphere was as cold & uncomfortable as was weather, outside. Food was not At all enjoyable. Meats were over cooked, foods were undercooked, and fruit was Way over ripe. I tried their hot beverage which taste like sweetened water. Service wasn't customer friendly. No menu was offered, just steam table, for lunch, for over $9.00

Stopped here for lunch and were surprised about how good the buffet turned out to be. All kinds of familiar Indian dishes and fruit and yogurts as well. We particularly loved the garlic nan. Service was very friendly. Buffet was less than $ 10.00 and drinks were included. Nice alternative to Western Fast Food and close to Trader Joe's as... More

The ambiance and service was ok, unfortunately extra spicy means that the chef just goes banana on the pepper mill instead of using indian spice blends. Food was edible but nothing extraordinary as I have grown accustomed by eating in ethnic restaurants.... For the price you pay, the portions are rather small for american standards...
