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!!

There are many awesome restaurants in Edmonton, but Guru has been my favorite since it opened. It is our number one go to for celebrating or introduction to friends of fine Indian cuisine.

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!

This was our first time to Guru and we all agreed it was one of the best meals we've ever had. Jay's service was terrific and his suggestions were perfect. The vegetable sliders are to die for!

We are determined to make this a regular stop on our dinner tour.

I have been to this restaurant in the past for private functions, and they really do a good job introducing seldom-seen dishes and flavors.
Last night I went in on my own, and had an equally good experience. Everything is just at a higher level, from a unique take on an old fashioned, to the appies and mains. I ordered a lamb curry, and my excellent waiter included a little taste of the butter chicken, both were outstanding.
Even the rice was a higher level. Great attention to detail here.
But it is best to bring a friend, portions are big. One dish is more than enough for one person.

Poor service at the get go as I waited at the entrance for 5-10 before someone spoke to me. However once seated the waitress was friendly and attentive. Food was delicious albeit pricey. Overall would gladly eat there again.

The food was not as good as usual, unfortunately. Samosas were smaller and a bit doughy, mango lassi was somewhat watered down, and there was a little bit of gristle on the butter chicken. However, service was great and the food in general was delicious. Just a little below their usual standard, in my opinion.

I’ve enjoyed Guru before and again this week with friends it did not disappoint. My friends were impressed by the selection and excellent preparation of each dish.The staff was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating in every way. Spices and sauce accompaniments are spot on and there wasn’t anything we didn’t enjoy to the last morsel.We will be back as there are many more choices to relish- great dining experience!!

Fantastic dinner and dining experience at Guru! Friendly staff with good recommendations, great service, and the best Indian cuisine we have ever tasted! The delicious meal was topped off by a complimentary dessert once the staff found out we were celebrating a birthday, which was a lovely touch.

If you are looking for great indian food and don't mind paying a little more, this is your place. Service is good but do not expect a quick meal at Guru. You are meant to sit and enjoy your meal. This isn't buffet. The servings are large and decadent!

I wasn't a huge fan of the club music playing at lunch time but it wasn't too loud.

Sunday @9 they turned off the music as if to usher us out; whilst several tables were still finishing desert and wine. We rushed to finish and departed with the only staff in the venue it seemed- the dishwasher? The food was great - the experience very weird unfortunately.
