I had forgot the name of this restaurant until a friend asked me to recommend an Indian restaurant in Amsterdam. Going on Trip Advisor, I assumed it would be in the top 10-or-20. Not finding it I just googled Indian restaurants near the Leidseplein (sp?) and after finding it must assume the number of reviews is the drawback to its... More

We have been looking for another indian restaurant in Amsterdam. You know how it is - when you use the same cuisine restaurant time after time you begin to wonder if there is a better one out there. So we tried Guru - this was actually our second time - the first was during a very busy summer evening when... More

I went to Guru several years ago with a small group from KLM on a recommendation from a colleague, J.P. Singh, who had eaten here before. Every single dish we ordered was amazing. Shrimp, chicken, veggies, nan!!! Everything. It's still one of the best meals I've ever had.

It's kind of hidden from the 'mass' restaurant business in the Leidseplein area, but it's like a gem in hiding! The food is delicious and fresh and the nan bread is absolutely fantastic! This is by far one of the best Indian restaurants in Amsterdam. Definitely a place worth visiting!

There are many bad places in Amsterdam, Guru of India is definitely a great option. Friendly staff and great cuisine. Prices are above the average but it's worth the try. Also, you can go at any time, the welcome you would have stay the same: congratulation

We found the Guru and really enjoyed our meal. Each dish was more delicious and flavorful than the one before it. The staff was great and was more than willing to discuss any of the menu choices. I would definitely eat there again.

Ok, I really, really love Indian food. In my opinion this is by far the best Indian in Amsterdam for the food, along with Akbar, which is close by. But lets face it, the surroundings are not all that cozy. It is clean and straight forward, but not very romantic. I have been coming to this place for 16 years!... More
