As in the last review, don't listen to those who are rating this restaurant by the decor or location or the 1 waiter (Owner) of this scrumptious find! After all, it's about why you're there, to eat.

I never liked Indian food, but

This was an odd little restaurant. It's very small; maybe 10 tables, and more outside in a covered area. It smelled like ammonia, so it was very clean! Not much to see as far as decor. The waiter was a bit snide, which would have been OK in NJ, but not in CA. Food was good and tasty. One other party came in as we were eating. That was it.

I will give them another opportunity, because I did enjoy the food.

Don't listen to that shigototatsujin w*nker who gave this place a 3 stars. You don't go to a hole-in-the-wall such as this expecting great service. Yes, the service might be horrible, but here in lies the mystery of the universe. For as abysmal as the service and decor is, this restaurant is a genuine flawless D diamond in the rough. By that I mean, this is possibly THE BEST TASTING Indian restaurant in Orange County. When I think about the exquisite Chicken Tikka Masala I had when I first walked in one auspicious evening and the Vegetable Khorma my woman had, it was like an epiphany. If you've ever had a Tikka Masala at a Natraj (by all means, a rather well known chain) and you had Tikka Masala at Guru, the difference in quality is like night and day. Do not hold the manager/waiter's poor service against this establishment. If I were in his shoes, I would feel like shooting myself as well. Why? Because here I have possibly the finest Indian food around, but nobody wants to walk-in, because the place I could afford looks like a s***hole and I can't afford to renovate my s***hole because I can't drum up enough customers to get the place renovated. When you see the manager/waiter of Guru Palace, you'll see what I mean.

Pros: Fantastic Indian Food Bar-none

Cons: Manager is about as friendly as a doormat

I'm surprised this place isn't usually crowded, considering the reasonable prices, good food, and high number of students around. My girlfriend and I go every couple of weeks for lunch, and although we can't say the service is first class, we certainly get more than our $7 worth of North Indian food. We recommend their butter chicken. This place is never crowded, so you can just say hi, grab a plate and start piling on the food.

Pros: Cheap and good food.

Cons: Server seems careless (not a problem for me)

Unless you are a regular, don't expect to receive service or courtesy. The manager was very rude and only paid attention to the regulars whom he knew by name. The naan was stale and the rest of the food was below average at best.
