The street cred is not encouraging but once through Little India's doors you will be pleasantly surprised by the tasteful and interesting décor. The food was excellent, the service could not be bettered, quietly efficient, no hovering! A word of warning! Portions are generous. This being our first time we were not prepared for the amount of food and started... More

I've been here a few times and it never disappoints. It's not the best Indian around, but the service is good and the prices reasonable. You have to bring you own alcohol. While most of the menu is the usual Indian fare, the specials are what makes this restaurant worth a visit.

Recently travelled to Penzance to visit relatives, one evening we decided on an indian take-away and as this was local gave it a try. Was not disappointed, lovely tasting curries and so much meat. Portions great sized too. Will definatley be calling in again when im back in Penzance.

Me and my partner ate here on the off chance! Both Currys were tasteless and watery! Microwave meals taste better! Will never return or recommend!

There are not many options in menu, and not very close to authentic Indian food. They use some food colorants in some dishes which made it look horrible.

Went with my two on a birthday meal ... and we were met with disapproval by the waiters when we requested only to order a selection of starters and some naan bread due to our small appetites ... after explaining they still didnt back down so we decided to have two mains and sides. The waiters attitude was awful slamming... More

Booked a table (just to be sure) for Tuesday evening but probably didn't need to. Been a while since we last visited but the quality of the food and ambience was just as we remembered it. Busy but attentive staff. No long waits to be served and a corkscrew readily available to open our bottle. I rather like the notion... More

Since it was first opened we have used Little India for our Indian takeaway... Delivered to our door. It is always beautifully cooked and delivered within the timescale given to us on the phone. In all this time we have only ever had one disappointing meal and that was because the oil it was cooked in seemed a bit old... More
