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.

We went on a Saturday night. It was crowded with very little room for waiting.
The waiting area was by the bathrooms and trash and not pleasant. The bar is not accessible as this is the take out/pick up area. The table on the porch area was ok and the server was quite nice but the Chardonnay was not cold. I would recommend the Downing location.

Even though we booked our reservation well in advance, they didn't have anyones reservations taken down. Despite not having anyones reservations, they were still able to seat us quickly, even on a busy day. Great food!!

This wasn't their night. Busy. Sat at 6pm. We had received our appetizer and beverages about 6:15. Plates were placed in front of us around 6:30. This seemed like a good sign. We asked the waiter about our food around 6:40 and we still didn't have our entrees by 6:55 when we had to take the food to go to rush off to a theater performance. The food was still good tasting when we ate it at 9:30 that night after our show.

The food here is always excellent. I ordered the chickpea masala and my husband had the lamb vindaloo. When the masala arrived, it was made with a large amount of cilantro, and, unfortunately, I am deathly allergic to it. I have had several other masalas that did not include cilantro and I never thought to ask. I explained my situation to our waiter, who offered to replace the meal. They were able to make the same dish, without any cilantro. I offered to pay for the dish since we were going to take it home for my son, but they insisted to take the price of the original dish off the tab. Great service, and, in our future visits, I will remember the words of our waiter who said "the kitchen sometimes gets excited about using cilantro in many dishes" and request a meal without the cilantro.

Nice restaurant just south of downtown Denver. Good authentic Indian food. Service was a bit slow but it was a Saturday night during a holiday. I would recommend this restaurant if you want good Indian food.

Took my daughter here for a quick lunch between her classes. Like most we did a buffet. She's a Vegetarian (again...) and there are lots of great options. Everything I had was very good and the service was outstanding, especially for a buffet. If they had a lamb dish available on the buffet I would love it even more.

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.

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.
