“Might Be Better Than This Indian Food Novice Has Indicated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

This was the very first time that I'd ever had Indian food at a restaurant (I usually make all my own curries), so keep in mind that I might be a bit swayed in this review given that I've got nothing commercial to compare this experience to.
Service was very good, but it wasn't very busy when we were there. Servers were attentive and did a good job of explaining what the various dishes were.
Looked at the vegetarian buffet and decided against it; everything looked very sauce-ridden and the sky-high pile of Naan put me off.
We ended up ordering the lamb vindaloo, chicken tikka-masala and an okra dish that I'm not going to even try to spell the name of. All in all, they were very good (medium hot) and we finished every bite.
Bill came to a little over $50 with tip, which I thought was a little high given the size of the dishes, but then again, maybe I'm out of touch with portion sizes for this type of food.
All in all, not bad and we'd consider going back again some day.
One more note though.....the decor and condition of the restaurant is tired. Huge rips in the carpeting (someone is going to take a bad header some day) and the beat up booths are not doing this place any favours.

“Food was below average and service was terrible.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Naan was pretty good. Other food was below average and service was absolutely horrible. No one came to collect plates. One of the servers dropped a bowl of food on floor and just left it instead of coming to clean it up. One positive is that it is all vegetarian. Alot of gravy/sauce, not alot of content. Will not return.

“Classic, straight ahead cooking of North India at good value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012 via mobile

This is one of Vancouver's original Indian restaurants, amongst the vibrant sari stores. It had down years when it changed ownership but has come back again. The cases of sweets for purchase welcome you on arrival and are colorful and vibrant in their own right. The restaurant offers a buffet, which I've never had because I have favourites on the menu. The place is clean and the staff friendly.

“All India and Little India worth the visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

Both my wife and I are keen curry and vegetarian fans, Little India was a great find. We truly enjoyed the veggie buffet (My wife LOVES buffets).
Clean and a great staff. Perhaps a shade too much salt in the food though (thus only 4 stars)

“THE REAL DEAL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

I love this place when I am starving. So many good things in the buffet - I rarely have room for the all the good looking desserts!! This place is the real deal.
