This was one of the best Indian meals that my partner and I have enjoyed together. She enjoys the vegetarian options whilst I eat meat dishes. Portions were decent and satisfying. Price was average for entree shared and 2 main dishes. I had lamb brink which was delicious! Yes I Will go there again!

We were very excited go visit the little India Bistro and left feeling rather disappointed. I hope that our experience was a one off and that others who visit have a better experience. The biggest problem we had was the lack of customer service. In fact we found the staff to be rude and to not really care about taking... More

Loved the food although it took forever to come out .. . taste was worth the wait. The place was nice and lots of parking in the area close to the restaurant. Family friendly. Friendly staff.

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 was quite late when...

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'.

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
