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. It also offers takeout and delivery if diners can't come in and sit down.

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. Specialties include items baked in the clay oven (tandoori) and several made-from-scratch curry dishes. Little India's desserts are also made fresh, including the bright and tangy mango custard.

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!

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.

There was nothing wrong with our visit, but nothing memorable either. Nan was good. Lassi was good. Curries were okay, though they seemed to be missing that high note that jumps out at you. Beer was cold. Portions were about right for us. The menu was rather limited. Again, nothing was really wrong. Just maybe a little boring. Sort of the Toyota Corolla of Indian restaurants. Also, they're priced slightly higher ($2-$3 per entree) than what we're used to. I should note that we seek out Indian fare every time we travel, and cook it at home a lot. So our expectations might be higher than the average patron.

The food used to be excellent when I first moved to Denver 8 years ago, but it's since taken a nose dive. I had the chicken tikka-- the onions were barely cooked and the meat was bland.

Food is excellent but service was very slow and somewhat chaotic, though clearly well intentioned. Waiters were rushing around looking frantic all the time, but very little seemed to get done. After we were seated, we waited 15 minutes to get a waiter to come by and take drink order, and nothing happened till we asked the manager for help. Food also took a long time to arrive after order. Everyone very nice, and food was delicious, but the whole thing seemed like a restaurant scene from a sitcom.

This was exactly the experience I was looking for! Was my first time having Indian food here in Denver and I was not at all disappointed. The staff was so friendly and seated us very quickly. They took our food and drink orders incredibly promptly. When our food came and the table was looking a little crowded, they encouraged us to move to a bigger table, even though that would mean more work for them, as they would have to bus our original table. The food was excellent and came out very authentically, in little share style pots, each with their own spoon. A side of rice came included as well, which was perfect for soaking up sauce. I ate half my dish and still had plenty to take home, which made a great dinner the next day. Would definitely recommend and will be back!

The food was ok. The chicken tikka masala is always different. This time it was less creamy as usual. Our server basically forgot about us for thirty minutes and we never had the opportunity to order more rice since we were originally served just one little dish for the both of us. To top off the meal, the phone at the front counter rang NON-STOP the entire time we were there since no one answered it! And we couldn’t tell our server because we was AWOL.

A neighbor recommended Little India to us. We were going to order home delivery, but the menu was so extensive that we decided to go in the first time to get assistance from the server. I'm glad we did.

The server was very good to explain the different types of dishes, the cooking methods, sauce bases, and spice level. My husband had a traditional curry, (combination beef and chicken) which was good. I had their lamb special for that day which was fantastic. The crisps served when we sat down, with 2 types of dips, were very tasty. The garlic naam which we ordered with our meals was also very good.

We thought the prices were reasonable for what we got. The serving size was generous. (I brought half of mine home for dinner the next day.)

The interior of the restaurant was pleasant, if not spectacular. We sat in the main part of the restaurant. There was another area with windows all around which looked even more pleasant.

We will definitely go again, primarily because the food was excellent.

Tandoori shrimp was a big disappointment: overcooked shrimp, little flavor.
Basmati lamb was good but the lamb was dry.
Chicken Tikka Masala and eggplant dish were both excellent.

I have ordered from Little India on Grubhub as well as been in with friends and family multiple times and I can’t get enough of this place. Not only is the food wonderful, the service never ceases to amaze me. They are very kind, knowledgeable and accommodating. When it comes to food I have never had a bad dish. Even in London I didn’t find Indian food this good. Will be going again and again.
