We had a small family dinner with two children and three adults. Unfortunately, it took over 80 minutes for our food to arrive! I realize that the kitchen was busy, because there was a private party, but the wait was unacceptable. When we inquired with our waitress why the food took so long, she told us on the side that the chef had overlooked our order. We can see that parties that arrived after us were served first. In fact a large family had came in after us, finished their meal and left before our food even arrived! The kids were so hungry that they were falling asleep. Overall, even though the food was very good, we are extremely disappointed with our dining experience. I hope this feedback will help you improve your service when your restaurant is busy. Thank you.

This was our second visit to Guru, our first visit was 2 years ago and we were less than impressed but this restaurant has won many awards so we felt it was worth a second try after some time. We were disappointed and this restaurant is now off the approved list.

15 mins after being seated before water or drink orders were taken. We were serviced by three different members of their staff. None of whom asked how our food was.

As this is a known Indian restaurant we ordered the cauliflower 65, which we loved on both visits. We also ordered a basket of nann, butter chicken, and coconut rice. We were asked the spice level and we requested medium. When our food came the butter chicken tasted like it had only medium flavor and no heat to it all. Rice had a similar issue with minimal flavor. Tried the rice on its own, I could tell there was coconut in the rice but the flavor was nearly there like they cooked plain rice then added shredded coconut after the fact.

All in all, for the reputation my wife and I were very disappointed and we will not eat here again. I will say the cauliflower 65 is worth taking the time to pick it up but nothing else about this place redeems it in any way.

The food is exceptional. Always love eating here. It's a treat as the price doesn't justify going all of the time but we really enjoy the times we do go. It is also always consistent from time to time.

First time my parents ever had Indian food and they were impressed. Every dish was cooked to perfection, restoring our faith in classic dishes like tandoori chicken and butter chicken which too often are subpar at other establishments.

Only downside was service. Staff was friendly and accommodating however it took us nearly an hour to get our food at a time when the restaurant wasn’t too busy. Normally this wouldn’t bother me much as I know it takes time to make quality food, but it was a long wait for our hungry 1 year old.

The best butter chicken I’ve ever had. The only thing I didn’t like that I asked for more sauce for my butter chicken, they charged me extra $11 for it.

Second visit. Not asked what our special occasion was but booked as same online. One daughter lactose intolerant.
Good non dairy options & waiter well informed of meal contents. Food & portions excellent. Bit disappointed the requested desert not available..a Tuesday night at 6pm.
Looking very forward to the downtown location as we live east of the city.

The food was great. A little bit pricey. I needed to be reminded that it is like family dining as we ordered too much food for 2 people. We were seated by the reserved room which could get a little raucous at times. ? Maybe a door might help? Overall it is the best East Indian food in town.

Food was pretty good. Plate size is quite large so you have to share, which makes it harder to try lots of different things. Not the best Indian I’ve had but pretty decent

Flavours were great. Butter chicken and Lamb curry were dynamite. Tandoori chicken and chicken tikka were made with chicken breast and were dry. Chicken Tikka was terrible and cost $25. Food was good but horrendously overpriced. Wont be back.

We had an amazing meal here. The samosas were fabulous, especially the butter chicken ones. We had the lamb vindaloo, butter chicken and mixed vegetables in a mango coconut curry. Everything was delicious! The garlic naan was warm and tasty. Highly recommend this restaurant for delicious and tasty Indian food!!

Wonderful main courses (chicken birani and veg masala) with plenty of delicious naan (really- how do they get it crispy AND soft). Sorry I ordered the key line (rather bland) instead of the gulab j. Next time!
