    $6 for a kids Shirley Temple. Kids meal was $10, so total of $16 plus a dessert. Pricing not commensurate with value. We will find a new Indian restaurant.

    We heard about this place from a coworker that gave it a great review, decided to check it out ourselves for a birthday celebration as Indian cuisine is our favorite. We had a reservation, not that it mattered, the host checking us in didn’t check and sat us anyways. We were the second table to be sat in the dining area, three other tables were sat after us. Before we were given a chance to order our drinks the other tables already had theirs and when we finally did order drinks it took about 10 minutes for two sodas. There was definitely a communication barrier as our server had a difficult time understanding us throughout the night. It took about half an hour for pretty good food. The thing that really drove my nuts was the live playing of the Sitar. It was so loud it was extremely difficult to hold a conversation with my date or even speak with the server. The Sitar is an acquired taste, one that we do not have, it was the worst part of the night and pretty much ruined the meal. I would recommend takeout from this place, unless you like the sound of a the same note playing over and over again, louder and louder.

    This is an honest-to-goodness neighborhood gem. The food is excellent, the staff is all smiles and cheerful service, and the sitar player on weekends is superb, adding much to the ambience and experience. It has become my go-to Indian restaurant, and I'll be back.

    We love going here. Never a bad meal. People are fantastic and so is the food. If had anything to say it would be that it seems that sometimes the dishes have a bit less chicken in them…. Maybe I just want more because it’s good? Great place! Go!

    Wonderful place, authentic food (pricey yet worth it ), great and genuine service, peaceful environment, low key location and a wide range of authentic food from India to appease the hungry pallet. A dining rarity that I and my companion truly enjoyed.

    Service was friendly but inattentive for long periods of time. Bottled beer was warm. Big pour of white wine. Chairs on patio have leather seats that are shredded and almost completely peeled off. Lamb filled Naan was undercooked. Masala sauce furnished gratis for dipping was just OK. Mutter paneer was somewhat flavorful and medium spiced but butter chicken, also requested medium spice, came out as mild and flavorless. Gratis dessert of Indian donut holes in syrup was very sweet and heavy. The patio itself is reasonably pleasant urban dining other than the chairs. Considering everything, we would have much preferred to be at India's on Hampden, our go to for Indian food in southeast Denver. Food, service and ambience there are far superior to this Little India's, which is best described as a place to get a large serving of average quality food at a good price. That's not what we are looking for when we dine out but others might like it.

    Great service! There was a sitar player during our meal, which was really lovely--not so loud that we couldn't talk, and really beautiful music. We had too many appetizers, but they were so tasty! My only complaint would be that the edamame were very messy because they had curry sauce on them. The onion rings were delicious, and much lighter than most onion rings. When the main courses came, I was already stuffed, but of course I managed to taste everything except my husband's vindaloo. The rest of us got medium spicy (non-Indian), and it was perfect. The sag paneer was delicious, as was the lamb tikka masala. Our server suggested chicken Kashmiri and it was really great--maybe the best dish out of the three. I will definitely be back.

    The food and service were both amazing - thank you for the wonderful experience. Half of our party had never tried Indian food, and Coco was awesome in explaining the different sauces and ingredients used and in recommending things they could try. I went with the Chicken tikka masala, and it was delicious - half of us got the same thing and loved it. Those that got the chicken biryani and shrimp biryani also loved it. The Naan was delicious; we especially enjoyed the garlic naan; but the house special naan wasn't bad - mostly interesting. As someone who has enjoyed Indian food before, I didn't find Little India to be unnecessarily spicy, which is often the case with some Indian restaurants, instead it was the perfect level of spicy and super delicious and tasty. Those who enjoy extra spicy, be sure to ask when you order or ask for a side of some spicy sauce (think it was pakora sauce). Everyone, from our waitress, Coco, to the manager who kept checking us to ensure everything was ok, to those who brought the food out, were awesome.

    This was our first time here and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal! While the Onion Bhaji was delicious, not sure if it was authentic. The vegetable Momo were superb. We enjoyed Lamb Saag and Bharta Makhani with some of the best garlic cheese naan! We will return. The predinner cocktails were not good and took a very long time. Wine was a little warm but that was easily fixed.

    Great Indian restaurant with some in-house specials. Warm greeting, seated promptly and food all made fresh to order, with generous helpings. For my well-trained British-Indian tastes, medium was plenty hot enough on all dishes. Medium plus took it to an extra spicy level. Sign-up for emails and they frequently have some excellent deals. Will be going back there again soon!

    Extremely slow service and cold food. We had to send it back. The waiter apologized and gave us a discount, as he was doing his best. The restaurant was clearly understaffed. We were very disappointed in both the service and food after reading such good reviews.

    My best friend and I have been coming here for years, though we don't always reserve through OpenTable. We like to come for dinner when we have time from the craziness of everyday life. The food is always fresh and well-prepared, with full traditional flavours. The menu changes fairly often, although we're always able to find old favourites. The service is always extremely friendly and attentive. Occasionally, there is live sitar music, which really makes our time there special. It's our little getaway in the neighbourhood for excellent Indian cuisine, soft light and a little peace in our lives. On our most recent trip in December, we noticed that the food's flavour and presentation were brought up a few notches. When we inquired, the server said there was a new Chef. We were happy before but the food now is even better, with more robust flavours and a bit more spice and heat. Looking forward to coming back again tonight!

    Honestly, I’ve never received worse service in a restaurant before. I worked in a restaurant for years so I am usually very understanding about the small issues that can sometimes arise. We had an 8pm reservation and were not seated until 8:30pm. It took awhile for our server to come over to us, and it wasn’t until shortly after 9pm that the wine we ordered arrived at our table. We left at 9:30 when our server couldn’t tell us how much longer our food would take to arrive (we hadn’t even gotten appetizers or bread). The tables next to us were having the same issues and some of their food had come out wrong when they finally got it. The restaurant wasn’t busy (I counted maybe 10 full tables and there were many more empty ones) but they did seem grossly understaffed. The staff was very kind whenever we spoke to them but we were absolutely astounded at how long we waited to be served.

    Went during Denver Restaurant week. No indication that app and dessert were shared. We asked for a new wine glass after noticing the dirt on one we had. Hostess took the glass away and dumped out the full glass of wine without replacing the wine in the new glass. Would not go back.

    I have been to this restaurant many times but our experience last night was horrible. After we were seated, although we were waiting for two more in our party to arrive, no came and asked if we would like another beverage. Our waitress was very inattentive, did not check back with us if the food was okay or if we wanted another cocktail and she did not seem familiar with the menu. We waited a very long time for our food. Overall disappointed in the experience. Don't think we will be back to this location.

    Great food and ambiance. Felt like I was in someone's home. I was there for the first time and there 6 of us. We each of us was going to order Nan, but our server (correctly) said "that's too much bread." It was a first time for one of our party having Indian food. She was very nervous that it would be too hot. She had the chicken tiki massage and LOVED it. Definitely visiting again next time I'm in Denver.

    Service at first was extremely slow, so slow that we debated finding somewhere else to eat! Thank goodness another diner went up to the waitstaff asking to serve our section. The wait was awful but the food was outstanding. I do wish they would label what foods can be made vegan, saving myself and the waitstaff a lot of back and forth!

    Food was excellent as usual, but service was slow. They appeared to be understaffed, like many restaurants these days. We wouldn’t have minded, except we went before a concert and only had time to eat half our meal before we had to leave, taking the rest home.

    We have an AMAZING meal when we went to Little India. The restaurant is beautiful and the staff was super friendly. It was pretty quiet when we were there so not a lot of people dining in. The food was spectacular though! Great flavors and it came out really fast. The portions were big and we ended up taking a ton home. Perfect for next-day leftovers. I would highly recommend you try this place out and go in - not just delivery. You get to experience so much more.
