Worst Customer Service ever

My friend and I both experienced the worst customer service at this particular branch. We were told that we had to sit at the corner table even though there were many unreserved tables ( with four seats) that were empty and it was unlikely that they would be required by large groups later on as it... read more

I have been at night before and as usual the quality and taste is excellent. This time, we visited during lunch time and ordered the 'specials'. The quality of the food was very good but the portions were small and way over-priced to be considered 'specials'.

lamb Rogan josh to die for and wonderful malai chicken. the service was good but there was not a lot of atmosphere. it was lunchtime so maybe its a bit more lively in the evenings. we had a very nice bottle of wine to go with one of the best indian meals we have had anywhere.!!

Having moved back to Hamilton thought I would revisit a restaurant that was one of my favourites, many years ago. I know how good the food usually is having sampled the delights whilst living in Nelson and Christchurch. The decor has changed @ Hamilton but the food is still @ the very high standard and has very generous portions. 5... More

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
