Since our daughter's dance class was cancelled, we had time to lunch out after her piano class. So we tried Indian food for our first time here in Lima at Guru on Ave. Benavides a short walk from the Starbucks where we waited during our daughter's piano lesson. The restaurant was nice, clean, unassuming. They had an abundant selection of... More

This was some of the best Indian food that I have ever eaten! Wonderful spices and sauces! They have crispy Papadum! The place is also gorgeous!

Went here with some friends who are now living here in Lima. This place is located in Surco, about a 10 minute taxi from central Miraflores, but well worth the journey. Best Indian Curry in Peru. Awersome naan bread.

After having an Indian friend whose mom cooks like a Profesional cook. Most Indian food in restaurants goes from poor to average. Based on the above Guru is good. With traditional tasty and savory dishes it kills my Indian food cravings in Lima.

Great little restaurant serving authentic curries from different regions. It's small and simple, but cosy and friendly. Most importantly, the curries are excellent! It's very hard to find a good one in Peru, there are only a few options, and this one is probably the best.

Great vegetarian option in Lima. The restaurant was clean and the service was excellent. All of the food was made fresh and not too greasy or heavy.

Guru is one of two Indian restaurants in all of Lima. The restaurant is small but the service is great and food is delicious! There are many options on the menu, including vegetarian options. The naan is great and we love the butter chicken. They have some unusual hours (close between lunch and dinner) so make sure they are open... More

The best curry I've had in South America. It wasn't 100% what I have been used to in the UK, but the food was delicious and the service was first class.
