The waiters were friendly and numerous, to a point that he checked my mom's silly question with a swift and respectful response that erupted the entire table in laughter.

I went there for a birthday celebration expecting the normal boring restaurant experience.
To the contrary, the staff was a little better than perfect, the food was absolutely delicious and the diner's at the other tables were great to the birthday boy and made it one of, if not the best times I've had, from start to finish. The waiter even came to tell me my car was about to be towed so that even made a potential nightmare ending that much better!!! I recommend you go at least once and I'm confident you will return.

This restaurant was recommended to me and I have to say that it was as good as I was told! My server(s) were knowledgeable and able to recommend dishes that were perfect for me. I've already told several other people and will be going back again myself in the near future!

I took my daughter her to start a new tradition of Indian food for Christmas Day dinner. We arrived towards the end of the scheduled buffet and were told that it was too late to order the buffet, as there was "no food left" and it was being broken down. In the time that it took for the waiter to bring us menus and take our order, I saw at least 4 people approach the buffet and walk away with plates of food. That was no big deal, I understand they have to close it at some point, it just seemed strange to be told we couldn't order the buffet because there was no food left when other people were getting plates of food.

I also ordered a cup of coffee, was told that they would brew a fresh pot, then was told by another waiter that there was "no coffee". Again, it was disconcerting that they have coffee on the menu, I was told they would brew a fresh pot, and then told "no coffee."

Finally, I ordered a mango chutney and raita to go with the meal and it did not arrive with our entrees and I had to ask the waiter to please bring it out.

There were several different servers attending to our table and there appeared to be a communication gap somewhere along the line.

I don't know that I'll be going back to Little India for dinner or any kind of special occasion.

Little India on 6th is consistently very good. To be excellent, the food would have to be a bit more "spiced up", more robust. That said, this is the best Indian food I have had in Denver. And,the service is consistently attentive and courteous. I'll go back and have.

I had a great time. My waiter was very personable and respectful. I felt that he was a bit unprepared with regards to making suggestions from the menu, but his service was impeccable: attentive and unobtrusive.

The food was very good. We had the chicken saag and the lamb jalfrezi. Both were delicious. I was disappointed that we were charged full price for the saffron rice, instead of it being an upgrade option.

I've always loved coming to this restaurant. They make great food! And at our recent visit there, we had two toddlers in tow, and the staff was great with them. It is nice to be able to go out as a family, eat a nice dinner and not feel unwelcome for having young children.

I went to Little India on 6th for Valentine's Day and although the food was good, the staff was extremely rude and apathetic. When we came in no one even noticed us for about 5 minutes, and once they did they immediately said we were in the way and told us to wait in the back of the restaurant by the bathrooms. We tried to explain we had a reservation, but the hostess said there was a long wait and she would have to ask her manager about reservations. Dinner was rushed and immediately after we signed our receipts, a waiter came over and asked us to wrap it up because they were busy and we were taking up their table. Two of us still had full cocktails! I understand they were busy but they did not handle it well and we won't be back.

My GF and I went here for Valentine's day to enjoy some great food. We have both been to and ordered from here numerous times and love the food. It is a great neighborhood place with a very friendly staff. The only issue with Valentine's day is that the place was packed and a little noisy as a result. I will say, however, that none of this detracted from the evening and everything was wonderful. If one lives in the 6th Ave. area near Broadway, this is a wonderful find.
