Good Indian Food!

Outstanding food! We just came back from our first visit to the Sunday all-you-can-eat buffet. A bit pricey for us, since we dont eat a lot, but good deal for those who do. I liked every vegetarian/vegan dish I tried. The food is all fresh, with fresh spices. You can taste it. If you are vegan (or looking for a... More

We were here for dinner on a bad weather day. The service is definitely good. Food was good. Not bad, not great. Somewhere in between. Mind you, this is a vegetation perspective. We are new to the area, had hard time finding a parking spot. Apparently the restaurant has its free parking across the street. And the desert carrot halwa... More

The food is good, but not great and service depends on knowledge of waiter. The meat was dry but the sauces were delicious. On Wednesday they run a special on full bottles of wine but the waiter balked when I told him I wanted only one glass. I paid $9.00 for that glass, the price as listed on the menu.... More

we go to eat, at least the last several years. The food is as good as I have had. The service is excellent and the owners work there daily. I wish I could be there during one of the four times a year the staff puts on the grand buffet, next one on December 21st. Truly, if you like indian... More

Living two hours away, I try to schedule a visit to owners Meena and Harish Anada's International Grocery whenever work or a special event brings me to Charleston. Often this is followed by dinner at their Little India. Having lived in India in 2004, we long for Indian food cooked by someone other than ourselves and would welcome another Indian... More

We live near Little India, and while the interior leaves a little to be desired, the food makes up for it! Solid authentic Korma, a wonderful vegetable platter! We love their food! Always satisfying and a great "get-away" from the every day hum drum!

Little India is the best Indian restaurant I've ever found, with a nice assortment of vegetarian and meat dishes. One of the restaurant's owners was kind enough to take me through all the items on the buffet to show me which were gluten free (most!). I've eaten there on many occasions and it's become my go-to restaurant when we have... More

We were on our way back to Cinci from Washingon and were lucky to stop at this restaurant for our dinner. This is one of the best Indian foods I have had in US. Chicken Tikka Masala was excellent and also was the lamb biriyani. Definitely a worth visit if you are driving in that route
