I visit Hamilton on business regularly - every 6 weeks and, both nights in town, I frequent Little India. For both dining in and takeaway I have always experienced an outstanding taste sensation. The restaurant dining area is clean, well laid out and tidy (clean and well serviced toilet facilities too). The dining in service has always been of a... More

A very nice restaurant, the staff were helpful and attentive, the service superb and the meal brilliant. We ordered the vegetarian thali or banquet. It was as much as we could eat, very tasty spice and chilli to order, couldnt be better.

Over several years of visiting here for dine-in and takeaway meals, the consistency of the food and the friendliness of service keeps us coming back. It would be nice to see some of the dishes not quite so "Kiwi-fied" and maybe the occasional blackboard special offering some more traditional dish options would add some variety to a comprehensive but relatively...

It's been over a year since we had a meal from Little India. This time we ordered a takeaway to be delivered to an address close to the CBD. We placed our order and were told it would be up to 1 hour. We accepted this and waited and waited and waited. After 1 hour 20 we phoned the restaurant... More

My boyfriend and I went here for dinner. We ordered 2 main course (mango chicken and lamb bryani). Spectacular dishes undoubtedly. Lovely and quiet environment. Cashier was very friendly. Everything went perfectly except one thing. We wanted to take away our leftovers as we couldn't finish. We asked for 2 separated boxes. But then we got told by the waiter... More

Have been going here for 12 years and tried most other Indian restaurants in Hamilton. Little India consistently serves excellent food. All of the dishes on the menu I have tried - most of the meat and some vege - are excellent. Service is excellent and they usually cope with large groups well. Atmosphere is quiet and pleasant. Priced at... More

We were in Hamilton for a celebration being held elsewhere and running late so only had time for an entree much to our regret. We patted ourselves on the back from the beginning to end of the meal for discovering this gem of a place. Hubby and I shared the tandoor platter for two and were just blown away by... More

perhaps not the best choice of venue for a staff meal during fieldays but certainly a great curry. Those who wanted hot were not disappointed - nose running yet flavoursome. a good choice for a spicy treat.

I went here with partner prior to going to the theatre. We ordered the set menu for two, it came in stages and was nice and fresh. Far too much for two people, we had BYO'd and luckily at that , the wine list was nothing flash, but pretty pricey for what was offered (note to all restauranters, if you... More
