Walking around the Musgrave area, we decided to eat at Little India. The service was average, and the food was also average. At the end of the meal, I asked for an espresso and the waitress did not have a clue what I meant. I eventually asked for a black coffee, which turned out to be instant coffee. The various dishes are cheap, and taste nice, although seem to be pre-prepared.

This restaurant was highly recommended and we weren't disappointed. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Menu was very extensive and we had a great meal. We tried a dosa dish which we hadn't had before which was lovely and also a Natal Fish curry which was excellent. Restaurant was fairly busy for a Monday night and service was very good. Definitely one of the best Indian meals we have ever had.

Visiting Durban we decided to try Little India as we do not get orginal Indian restaurants in the South Western Cape. The Breyani and butter chicken we ordered was delicious, what I liked was the manner in which the food is kept warm by the small candle burner on the table. The friends that went with us have been to Little India before and have never been dissapointed. The service was good and the staff made us feel welcome. The only let down is the area, although there is ample safe parking behind the building with electronic gates after hours. When you park here you have to enter the restaurant via the back door through an alley. This will however not deter us from dining there again.

Feeling for North Indian, South Indian or Chinese food, why not try Little India in Musgrave Road Durban. A lot of attention is placed in detail of blending Indian spices in preparation. Some of the dishes I've tried were paneer pakoda, uttapam, masala dosa, kadai paneer and chole bhature. The masala tea is just perfect at the end of the good meal. Only if one has a sweet tooth should they indulge in the indian desserts _ they're a little extra sweet. All meals are freshly prepared. Alcoholic beverages are also available. Enjoy a good meal with melodious background Indian Music.

If you're looking for delicious dosa's, yummy uthappam's or puffed up puri's... Then Little India is the spot to visit. They make the tastiest South Indian dishes, but also have a variety of North Indian style curries and Indian breads.
My mom is a huge fan of their paneer pakora.
My fav is the uthappam, and the dosa definitely gets my thumbs-up!

You can also order take aways - phone in advance and they will have it neatly packed and ready for you to pick up.
