it was a pleasant evening though I found many of the staff rather brusque in their manner and I did not always feel that I was a customer

I've known a few people to eat here over the years and have all said how good the food was so we finally decided to give it a try...1st impressions was a small and dinky interior and quite bland inside. But once the restaurant is full of diners it transforms into a comfortable welcoming environment. Of course this means nothing... More

My second visit in two weeks to this restaurant. I am giving it 1 out of 5 today because the staff have shown themselves to be dishonest and lazy. I ordered saag paneer, which blatantly had korma sauce mixed with the spinach, lots of it. Yellow, very sweet, pieces of coconut...it looked and tasted more like spinach mxed into korma... More

We went to Little India last night and had our usual welcome from friendly staff. Poppadoms really crispy and delicious. Prawn puree to start which was the nicest I have ever eaten. To be fair the restaurant wasn't busy so got the best of attention. I guess everyone got their credit cards bills to pay and not eating out as... More

We had a take away from here a few months back, had to drive 20 minutes home and it was still really lovely when we ate it - we haven't eaten in here but always seems quite busy when I walk pass on route home - would happily get another take away or eat here.

The food isn't bad for a local Indian restaurant, except for the saag paneer, which is so sweet that it could be served for dessert. It is one of my favourite dishes and this example is quite the worst I have ever been offered. We went on a Friday night and the tables were packed so closely together we could... More

We've visited Little India a few times before and again this evening. Nice and clean and fairly good food, however nothing special. Always offer drink on the house at end of meal. Fairly tight seating.

This is a Bangladeshi restaurant posing as Indian (which is an outrage btw). The butter chicken and kebabs we ordered were terrible, the curry overly sweet and fit for the bin. For real quality Indian try the Indian Essence restaurant around the corner from this dump. Never again...hope it shuts down as it's a disgrace to Petts Wood.

My second visit this year and another faultless and delicious meal, this time just my wife and I. Friendly welcome on a very busy evening. Drinks served within minutes and waiter remembered my wife's severe nut allergy and assured us no nuts on our order. Usual excellent starters, followed by delicious main and sides, faultless, waiters were very observant and... More

Well established restaurant that is very popular with the locals. Great menu and good quality food with good portion size. I have had a sit down meal here and take away and both were excellent. I have been going here for a few years and would recommend it totally. Only snag is it is a bit small inside, not the... More
