    Having eaten at Little India dozens of times says it all. My sister, visiting from Florida, asked to eat at Little India when I met her in the airport. However, we dined with my dear friend and the three of us shared the chicken tikka saag, chicken tikka curry and the chicken tikka masala. Delicious, fresh and served with rice - we also ordered naan which is baked to perfection. Can't wait to return.

    Everything about Little India is great- the food, the service, the location and the ambiance. My friend and I enjoyed lunch- she ordered the chicken curry and I ordered the chicken saag both with rice, - both fantastic. We enjoyed hot chai and naan as well. Our server was friendly and attentive and the service as always, was quick.

    This was my first time eating Indian food, so I definitely needed help navigating the menu. When I asked the server what comes with each entree, he said, "The usual sides for your table." Umm, how am I supposed to know what the usual sides are? The server didn't offer suggestions and was extremely late getting the bill back to us (we had all finished and not touched a thing for about 15-20 minutes before he asked if we wanted the check). Also, I was a server, and I'm pretty sure I learned on day one that you NEVER grab a glass or bowl from the top when you're serving food to a table because it's a health issue. Our food runner grabbed all three of our entrees from the top of the bowl. Anyway, the decor is nice and the food was ok.

    I have dined at Little India many many times and always have enjoyed the food, and service. My favorites include the Chicken Tikka Masala and Lamb Saag which are prepared perfectly and you can order mild, medium or spicy. The Belmar location is great and there is a lot of shopping nearby. There is amble room for a large group or a big family and whether I am dining with a friend or my entire family, the servers are attentive and helpful and the food is amazing!

    We had a reservation and when we arrived, we were told the wait would be 15 minutes. Well, we waited for another half an hour. I went up to the front desk and asked how much longer and then was told another 10 minutes. Ten minutes passed and we were still waiting. Finally, abut 20-25 minutes later we were seated. I understand it was Valentine's Day...but good grief...Extra staff help should have been added knowing that that day was going to be busy. They did not have a pager for any of the patrons waiting to get seated. The food was good otherwise and service wasn't too bad.

    Little India is generally consistent across their multiple Denver area locations... The food and service quality at Belmar is top notch. The menu is standard Indian resturant fare. But, be ready to pay about twice as much for the same entrees as you would at most other Indian restaurants in the area, like India's Restaurant, India Oven, or Taste of India. Cuisine of the Himalaya's near Evergreen is by far the best tasting and fairly priced I've come across locally.

Staff wasnt expecting us to be on time, had to wait 20 minutes for a table. Go after 7:30 pm and the place is less crowded on the weekends.

    This spot does a great job and keeps the Lakewood crowd coming back again and again. We love going for Dinner and have tried the Tikka Masala, Vindaloo (they can really crank up the heat) and Samosas. Great selection of flavored Naan's, but we usually order the regular and let it soak up our entrees flavor. In addition they have an outstanding lunch buffet with excellent variety, solid Indian Flavors and reasonably priced (I think it was $11 +/- pp). Check it out!

    This is another in the Denver Little India chain; I believe there are three, but I might be wrong about that. I wasn't sure how opening another one in a mall was going to work, but the quality still shines through. Since this one is closest to where we live now, we'll definitely be going back. Their takeout is fabulous, too!

    For our daughter's birthday, she requested dining at Little India in Belmar and since we have a long, long history of dining at Little India, the entire family thought it was a perfect choice. It has always been and still is one of our favorite restaurants. We decided to sit out o the patio and it was a perfect evening. The service, as always, was attentive and wonderful. The food as well. Although I think the chicken tikka masala is my absolute favorite, I tried the lamb saag and it was amazing! Everyone in my family loved their food and drink choices. We ordered a chocolate cake for dessert for the birthday girl and it too was delicious! So looking forward to returning!

    I couldn't remember the type of food I was looking for but I could describe it. The waiter was able to provide an absolutely awesome recommendation that was exactly what I was looking for. The breads were very tasty and exactly the way I remember it. I met a lady there for the first time and the ambience was exceptional. We sat outside where we could view the pedestrian foot traffic as well as hear the goings on of the neighborhood without drowning out our conversation.

    Dined on 5/17/2013
    We've been going to Little India for the better part of 20 years--since they first opened the location at 6th and Grant. We always have exceptional food, both during dinner and at the lunch buffet. Service is dependably good. The Happy Hour at the Belmar location, along with the beautiful outdoor patio, brings us back again and again. Sometimes, they even have a live sitar player. Try the tamarind margarita, chicken tikka masala, lamb or veggie korma, and coconut shrimp. They recently started offering combo plates--both a vegetarian and non-vegetarian option--that are a great way to sample more than one thing at dinner. Saag dishes are always good and if you like spicy food (and I'm not kidding!) try a madras dish.

    Decided to give it a try based on the positive reviews. We eat Indian food weekly and something about this place was off. The color of the food was different, the spices missing, just didn't look or taste authentic. Wasn't a bad experience but not something I'd do again and they won't miss me. The place was packed.

    Was a great experience for never having Indian food before. The bread is a must when getting your meal. It makes everything taste that much better. Don't sit in direct line of the front door on a cold night. Terrible draft of cold air even towards the middle of the restaurant. I am ready to go back for the food already.

    Just when I thought nothing could be better than my favorite, the chicken tikka masala, Little India in Belmar offered a special for the night - it DID include the chicken tikka masala, but also included saag paneer and lamb curry - also a side of aromatic basmati rice, punjabi samosa (deep fried crisp pastries filled with mashed potato and peas) and warm naan. I've dined at Indian restaurants all over the world but I have to say that this is the best Indian food I have ever had. So lucky to have Little India in Lakewood and happily, the food is equally as good in the other Little India locations in the Denver metro area - I have dined in all of them!
