The Baidwan and Malhotra families have been in Colorado for more than 25 years, and in 1998 they came together in their love for cooking to open Little India. Since that time, the two families have been serving Denver its most authentic fine Indian cuisine in a restaurant that has quickly become an area favorite. After all, there’s a reason Little India has been named “Best Indian Restaurant” and “Best Lunch Buffet” by local critics and Denver patrons for the past seventeen years. The sense of authenticity is undeniably evident in Little India’s atmosphere, where indian art and music accent the casual dining rooms. Then there’s the food: The Chefs who began their careers in Northern India, use only the freshest meats and ingredients and are known for mixing their own signature curry. A friendly, charming staff rounds out the dining experience at Little India-an experience that mingles exotic and simple tastes to unforgettable effect.

Voted Best India Restaurant in Denver 17 years in a row! Free Delivery!

My friend and I split a meal of the "thicker" curry with a side of naan. It was the perfect portion for the two of us. (Granted, we are both smaller females. If you are two big guys or going on a date, you might want a little more food, but don't be afraid to split something or set up the meal community style.) Overall it was a cheap, delicious meal right off the mall. My only complaint is that it took us a while to get the check/card. Downtown waitstaff are pretty used to people on the go so we were pleasant but persistent in getting noticed and out of there, so it wasn't too big a deal.

Our recent trip to Denver was fantastic, except for dinner that we had at this establishment. Only if we had known that we were embarking on gastronomic nightmare that would also include wretched service, we could have saved ourself from this misery. When you spend around $30 per person, you expect not to come out of restaurant with empty stomach and sour taste buds. Our food was brought to us after 40 minutes delay under the pretext that we would be served hot food, but man, we couldn't have been more wrong. The naan bread was rubbery, curries were stale, and icing on cake was unappetizing $3 serving of pickle, which is complementary at most of Indian restaurants. The highlight of dinner was indeed refreshing water served in copper glasses!

Solid, reliable Indian cuisine, even if not exactly inspired (and yet, very busy on this Saturday night). Service is mostly good and friendly. Downtown Denver / LoDo / LoHi need more Indian restaurants!

The buffet is ok compared with other restaurant. $15 per person, this includes buffet, soda, and 20% tip. This time I was here, the service was not good. They need to get old staff back.

Little confusing to get a beer but the food was good, fast and offers great value.
Response from the owner - a month ago
Sorry if there was some confusion when you were ordering a beer, Jeremy, but I'm glad just about everything else impressed you! I bet we can earn that fifth star sometime, so I'll be looking forward to having you back. Say hi when you make it! -Harman, Owner

I ordered the chicken curry cheese naan and pakora chicken daal soup. The food was greasy dirty and made us sit on the toilet seat for many hours. Absolute waste of money time and energy. Dirt!
Response from the owner - 3 months ago
Like I mentioned on Yelp, Rayed, we take food safety very seriously around here, and I'm really sorry if you weren't feeling well when you stopped in. Since we haven't heard of any other issues like you described, I hope you'll get back to us on Yelp so that we can make sure there wasn't any issue there. Nonetheless, I really hope you're feeling well again -- thanks for reaching out. -Harman, Owner
