Little India on 6th Avenue is a popular Indian restaurant with unique specialties and cocktails. To the delight of hungry patrons, the open kitchen allows the scents of the food being cooked to waft through the dining room. Little India is the definition of a local favorite, having been voted "Best Lunch Buffet" and "Best Restaurant" by local publications that polled both critics and patrons.

Little India's award-winning lunch buffet is the perfect opportunity for guests to come in and try a little bit of everything on the menu.

We had a 7 pm reservation and were still waiting for a table at 8. Maybe exceptionally busy for restaurant week. We left and went somewhere else. Disappointing.

The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. Can’t say enough good things about our server. He was top notch. The tandoori items were a bit dried out but very tasty. Next time we’ll stick with the curries and masalas. Naan was to die for.

We booked a reservation for 7:45pm.

The restaurant allowed for unlimited reservations that night (valentines day) and the place was beyond over packed.

We were not sat until after 8pm, and the food took forever. The staff was trying their hardest, but were very angry with each other.

Had I not been on a date with a partner of 5+ years, and say on a first date, I would have been EXTREMELY upset with the situation.

It was Valentines Day and very busy. They did not check us in and I wanted to make sure we got credit for our reservation. As we left, our waiter promised he would check us in, but I didn't hold out much hope. Obviously he did, which was pretty heroic given the circumstances. Don't miss the Tandoori Chicken!

The food and service were very good. It was a bit chilly by the window and the chair back was very uncomfortable. Low noise level was greatly appreciated!

I brought two friends as my guests, and we were all very happy with our choice. Staff were all friendly and helpful. The food was absolutely delicious. (Best saag paneer ever, and the special biriani was "to dance for"!) The close-up parking is especially helpful for those of us who don't walk easily. I've ordered for delivery before, but never eaten in. I'll be coming in again, for sure!

It took a very long time for our food to arrive, and our waiter didn't keep us posted. And unfortunately, 4 out of 5 of us spent a LOT of time in the bathroom the next day.

We had a reservation but it hadn’t been confirmed when we arrived. We were told we’d be seated next and then watched another couple be taken back ahead of us. I understand things were a bit crazy but communication is obviously a problem with the wait staff. Sat down and the noise made it hard to have a conversation. The tables were too small for the serving dishes. We had to constantly ask for dishes to be bussed to make room, none of the many workers walking past would pick them up. We had to ask for silverware/napkins after our food came and it took a while to get it. The food was fantastic but the subpar service doesn’t make me want to return.

I have long enjoyed the buffet lunches at Little India, when I tend to eat most everything offered, but I prefer dinners for two or more ordered off the menu so we can share a smaller selection of items in more depth. It's authentic and offers real value for the cost.

We sat for 20 mins before anyone came to greet us or take a drink order. Food was quick and amazing as usual however at the end of the meal it took them forever to bring our check to us.

Had the buffet. No return by server to freshen plate or drinks. Saag was flavorful but wouldn’t say it’s one of the better Indian buffets.

Best flavorful Indian food in Denver! Nitan was so knowledgeable and friendly for both of us. We just moved to the neighborhood and Nitan helped us go over the menu and got her a great wine pairing. See you weekly!

Little India on 6th is one of my favorites restaurants. I love Indian food, and this place is the best. I have been here many times, and every time the food and service is consistently excellent and well priced. I am sure I will go back many times.

The buffet was very good. It’s a very small space so there are about 20 hot items plus the salad bar of about 10 items.

Went for daughter's birthday. Great food, but somewhat overpriced. Service was attentive and well paced. While I love the ambiance, the restaurant itself is beginning to look it's age. Considering the pricing, you'd think the owner might look into some renovations to look less run down. Still, all in all, our visit brought a smile to my daughter's face, and that's all that mattered.
