We get takeaways semi-regularly and have dined there several times. The team there are really friendly and even offer poppadoms if I have to wait. Little India is really great for groups too.

The worst food ever. I complained about chicken biriyani that it has no taste. All they did was took the half eaten one and added some spices. We spend like $120, the food was tasteless. Never going back and not recommended..

The service was good but that's about it. First the juice ordered was not fresh and had a tin taste, this was replaced with another drink. (as you would expect). We ordered the chicken tikka and this was terrible, the chicken wasn't cooked and the sauce was describable. We were out for a pleasant day so didn't make a fuss... More

Absolutely amazing Indian food! One of the best Indian restaurants we have eaten at - and we have eaten our fair amount of Indian food! Great veg options and the best customer service I've experienced in a long time! :)

This is a great place to get a delicious curry in a lovely setting. The food was wonderful and the service great. We were with a large group and were seated in the bar area which was well suited to a large group. This restaurant is hidden from the road so get directions beforehand otherwise it could be hard to... More

Wonderful service. Efficient considering how busy they were. Happy to put a table together for our family of 10 with only 15 mins of warning, even though they were pretty full. Yummy butter chicken and butter paneer. Generous on the rice and garlic naans were huge. Mango lassi was pretty good too! Highly recommend.

If you didn't know where they were you would never find them. A stunning restored villa hidden behind a motel, but the food was excellent and the service also good. We turned up early and we're the only ones there, we thought we had made a mistake, but the guests started arriving and it soon became busy. Nice food, nice... More

I went here for a colleagues farewell and although I am not a fan of Indian cuisine the Butter Chicken and Naan bread is a good choice, all the other guests with me enjoyed their meals and we had a great time, I was impressed by the service it was the best I have seen in any restaurant in Wellington,...

This was our fourth visit to Little India over a period of years and it never fails to please. There is something on the menu for everyone, even small children. The restaurant is in a lovely secluded spot,tucked away from the hustle of the city. The staff are always friendly and helpful. Highly recommend.

We have chosen to present some of the more characteristic, yet legendary dishes from North India, especially the Punjab. Our preparation makes our food beautiful to behold and addictive to the palate.
