“Solo dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

A busy night during the week but food and service were excellent. It was a good place to be a solo diner - there was plenty of space and activity.

“Delicious Indian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

I went to this restaurant with friends and all of us went away thoroughly impressed with the food. We had a mixture of tastes from those that liked their curry's very hot to those that like them mild. In every instance the chef delivered a perfect tasting dish. If I had to pick a fault with the restaurant it would be that the decor, whilst tidy, is a little basic. Don't let this put you off because the food is delicious.

“For Indian Lovers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014

Had a family dinner with both old and young members. Everybody enjoyed the meals. I thought the quality was excelent with great flavours and friendly service. An extensive menu with the normal indian dishes but also many Specials of the house which were superb. For the younger ones there are a few children type meals.

“always good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014

I visit the Spice Guru whenever friends visit and want to go somewhere to eat. It is a treat to be served by polite waiters and waitresses, they are friendly and very efficient.
The last time I attended was last week and the place was still tops, thank goodness.
I have always had a great experience and have tried many flavours on the menu. I order a 'medium' usually, and find it perfect for my palate. I have friends that like it 'hot' and have asked for it as such...the order was delivered perfectly for them!!!! Your command is their wish as far as spicy goes so if you want it hot...let them know!
They do have alcohol and soft drinks available and the Mango lassi is yum! Seating is inside or out and the restaurant is centrally placed right in the Avenue - just down from the fountain towards the river, across from the movie theatre
