Little India

330 E. 6th Ave. Denver, CO 80203 | Central Denver | 303-871-9777

Location Description:

Little India's take on Indian food is an odd mix of regional specialties, all cooked in the tradition of northern Indian cuisine by a Punjabi chef. The menu is long and dignified, showcasing the curries and masalas that even casual Indian-food eaters would recognize, as well as seven kinds of saag, specialties of Madras, Danshak, Bombay and Punjab, and even colonial dishes like the vindaloos from Goa. And everything from those complicated vindaloos to the simplest chutney has the potential to transport a diner to utter bliss.

Business Description

The Baidwan and Malhotra families have been in Colorado for more than 20 years, and in 1998 they came together in their love for cooking to open Little India. Since that time, the two families have been serving Denver its most authentic fine Indian cuisine in a restaurant that has quickly become an area favorite. After all, there’s a reason Little India has been named “Best Indian Restaurant” and “Best Lunch Buffet” by local critics and Denver patrons for the past fifteen years. The sense of authenticity is undeniably evident in Little India’s atmosphere, where indian art and music accent the casual dining rooms. Then there’s the food: The Chefs who began their careers in Northern India, use only the freshest meats and ingredients and are known for mixing their own signature curry. A friendly, charming staff rounds out the dining experience at Little India-an experience that mingles exotic and simple tastes to unforgettable effect.
