Absolutely torn, food is good but there appears to be a complete inability to either deliver food on time or the order placed. What you get is great but you're working to their timeline and understanding of your order.

I've been coming to this restaurant for years but I feel has gone down recently!. I came here with a group of my friends for the banquet night. Dinner was very lovely, bur very under staffed We asked for water several times, to be ignored and then a jug to actually be delivered to the table in front of us.... More

We regularly had Friday night takeaways after Chutneys closed down and to begin with the food and delivery times were both excellent. After a few weeks, the delivery times got longer and longer and I kept getting bits of bone and gristle in my biryani which spoilt the meal...tried to ring a manager to complain and got no response back

I really love the guru normally! Been loads of times for banquet nights and always thought that despite pretty slow service, it's always incredible value for money. Sadly we just tried takeaway for the first time from here and it was well below par. The chicken tikka masala was full of water and they were 15 mins late delivering. Hoping... More

I visit the guru quite frequently. I have tried pretty much all the Indian restaurants in Hemel Hempstead and for food the guru is the best. OK service may be a little slow at times but trust me the food is worth the wait. Must recommend the rezella, it's amazing. The restaurant may need updating but the food certainly doesn't.

It doesn't matter where else I try in Hemel I always go back to the Guru because the food is just the best. The team are always friendly and can't do enough for you as well. Would recommend the Guru every time!
