My fiancé and I come here at least once a month. We both love Indian food. After moving from the suburbs to Denver, I was hoping to find GOOD Indian food restaurant nearby and thankfully, my fiancé discovered this amazing place. The ambiance is the best part, it's calm, quiet, the temperature is perfect and the wait staff is kind. We will continue to visit Little India.

Wonderful lunch buffet main dishes and desserts. Our group of 11 all commented as to how yummy the food was and that it was worth the 40 minute drive from Parker. Thanks for the great service and you've got 11 new customers. :)

Tucked in among shops at Belmar, Little India is a combination of class and comfort (inviting). Once you step through the doors, it's easy to feel like you have stepped into another world. The night we were there, there was a gentleman playing a sitar which again, added to our dining experience. Each in my party ordered different items - punjabi samosa, chicken curry, chicken bhuna, cheese naan. Every one loved their meals. We topped the evening off with chai and kheer - so amazing! The staff, from the host to servers treated us as if we were the only guests - five star!

Our waiter's first night as a waiter. His usual gig is bartending, so he was a little slow, but overall he was friendly and he was trying. The food was good.

My whole life I thought I didn't like Indian food. I have tried it multiple times and just never enjoyed it. However, the lunch buffet at Little India has converted me for life. They have a nice selection of food from cold salads, sauces to warm curries, tandoori chicken, and of course naan bread. The food is delicious and I liked everything I tried. The staff is also very nice and attentive which is especially great for a buffet. Also the value for the money is great 2 people had a full (and I mean full) lunch for just over $20. I will definitely be going back and would recommend this to anyone!

We have been to this restaurant numerous times and this was the only less than satisfactory experience that we have had. The server was new (only his second table) and he has a lot to learn. Also, we had the same dishes that we normally have and they were significantly different. The Dal soup was much spicier than usual and my Lamb Jalfrazie was sweeter and just different. It isn't so much that it was bad, just not what we were used to after having eaten here for years. We will be going back but there is significant trepidation about it. We will see.

I brought a large group here to celebrate a birthday and we had a wonderful time! The atmosphere was warm, friendly and everyone who worked there had genuine smiles and we're very down to earth! The greeter was very accommodating when we requested to change seating and quickly made the change. We had a friendly server named Anna who took it upon herself to bring us an alternate dipping sauce when the one requested wasn't offered. The food was outstanding, presentation authentic, and everyone left very satisfied! I will definitely be back here soon, loved it!!

The food is great, very flavorful, and we really enjoyed the evening. Very nice servers too. Fortunately I asked for medium heat in the sauce, hot would have been too much for me.

I wish it were a little quieter. The noise level was really high, perhaps because it was a Friday night. I would appreciate a few more wines to choose from also.

My family and I have been here several times and the service and food at Little India in Belmar are consistently excellent! Everyone is so friendly, and even during busy times I've never had to wait very long to be seated. The food is absolutely amazing. I need to get back for the buffet sometime. My favorite dishes are the mixed grill and the fish curry!

We came for lunch and they were having a buffet. Normally, I don't go for buffets but my friend was doing it, so I went ahead. I'm glad I did. They changed up the food ever five/ten minutes. Great selection of Indian food. Loved that!

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.

Over all, a great experience. Never has indian food before, the staff very helphul. Not as hot as i expected. Fun place for a novice to experience something new. 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!
