Guru’s Indian Cuisine will offer takeout, catering and gift cards for the remainder of 2021. Dine-in is planned to resume in early 2022 (dates to be determined).
It’s the season of gratitude and we would like to share our appreciation by keeping you updated of Guru’s plans for the Holiday Season. It has taken a lot of courage to put this out on social media, but as you are part of our Guru’s family, we felt it was important to share more with you.
First, we are so appreciative of everyone that has helped throughout the pandemic and during the recent labor and supply shortages. Families have stepped forward as servers, bartenders, hostesses, and in running the kitchen. Our guests have been understanding as new servers learned the menu. You’ve done more than we could have ever imagined, like a family, keeping us afloat throughout a very challenging time in the World. There are not enough words to express how thankful we are to be part of this amazing community.
In the recent months, we’ve seen a shift to more of our guests choosing takeout. And as much as we love serving your families in our dining room, focusing on takeout and catering for the holiday season will allow us to best serve you as we balance ongoing labor issues and a very exciting time in our lives, completing the adoption of two little girls!
In early 2020 after years of trying to start a family, we were fortunate to be able to adopt two little angels in India to help build our own family. But, due to the pandemic, we could not complete the process to bring the girls to the US, and they have been living with our relatives as we awaited safe travel. While we talk on facetime every day, as you can imagine, we all want so badly to be together in person.
Earlier this fall as travel restrictions were being lifted, we worked to get the girls admitted to a local school here. This would have allowed us to care for them in a safe, warm, and loving environment as we finalized the remaining legal paperwork for the adoption. Sadly, and to our disappointment, the Mumbai Indian Consulate rejected their education visas. This has forced us to proceed with a traditional international adoption before they can come to the US, a very time-consuming and costly process.
As we fight this fight to keep our family together, one of us will make trips to India to care for our children while the other continue working in the restaurant to support our family. And this Christmas, for the first time, we will all travel to be with our girls as a family for the holiday!
Again, we thank you for your ongoing support of our business. We have a great team here at Guru’s that is excited to serve all of you with your takeout, catering, and holiday gift cards. We are so very grateful for your support and kindness and hope to return to our normal dine-in operations very soon.
Thank you for your patience and understanding and for being part of the Guru’s family and community.
- Priya & Ashni Guru

The fame of Indian spices is older than recorded history. The story of Indian Spices is more than 7000 years old. Centuries before Greece and Rome had been discovered, sailing ships were carrying Indian spices to Mesopotamia, Arabia and Egypt. It was the lure of these that brought many seafarers to the shores of India. Broadly, there are two main subdivisions of spices, one being the major spices and the other is minor spices. For example, the spices like pepper, cardamom, ginger, turmeric, chilies etc., come under the major category. The important minor spices grown in India are ajowan, aniseed, caraway, celery, coriander, cumin, dill seed, fennel, fenugreek, garlic, onion, saffron, vanilla etc.
Indian cuisine encompasses a wide variety of regional cuisines native to India. Given the range of diversity in soil type, climate, culture, ethnic groups, and occupations, these cuisines vary significantly from each other and use locally available spices, herbs, vegetables and fruits. Indian food is also heavily influenced by religious and cultural choices and traditions. In India, people believe that any recipe is incomplete without the essence of spices. Spices bring depth and soul to each dish through their unique aromas, flavors, and colors. Let us introduce you to a new world of flavor that will dazzle all of your senses!
