We have been going to Little India for several years and the food and service has never dissappointed us. This visit was to ring in the new year. To start, the place is off the main drag but within walking distance to the center of town, always clean and service punctual; owner and staff are polite and very helpful with answering questions and adjusting to individual taste requests. Pricing is very reasonable, including their limited wine and champagne selection. The dishes are prepared with such authentic ingredients that you couldn't improve on it, except possibly by going to India.
We have eaten Indian food in several major cities in the US, have gone to Indian cooking classes to learn their secrets, and Little India truly delivers the best overall. If you are in the NY capital district area and you enjoy authentic Indian dishes, Little India is the place to go.
During the busy summer season, it is recommended to call for reservation, because the place is cozy (not overcrowded) but quite small.
