Bummer – I had heard good things about this restaurant, clearly they have received accolades from the media and patrons around town and since they deliver I thought it would be good to try them out on a day when I just wasn't feeling up to cooking or going out.
Unfortunately I found out that they have a $20 order minimum for delivery, which is more than a little steep. By comparison, Thai Basil's minimum is $10 and the Chinese place I used to go to in a similar area the order minimum is $15. Since they do not post this clearly on their website (they say FREE DELIVERY, which definitely leaves one with the impression that there is NOT an order minimum) I had not anticipated ordering that much food and had to go back to look at the menu to pick something else.
While I was looking at the menu I was put on hold, but not like the silent hold where you hear music and it is clear when the person on the other end of the line is back with you, no. It was obvious that they just put the phone down on the counter. When the guy taking my order came back I told him what I had decided on to fill out my order and then he disappeared again. When he finally came back on the line he asked if he could call me back. Who does that?!
At that point I just told them to forget it. It may be a busy Friday night, but that's no excuse to have crap customer service. I was on the phone for 3 and half minutes with them and ended up just annoyed and still hungry by the end.
I still haven't tried their food, and at this rate I frankly doubt if I ever will.
Cheap ownership/management – This used to be one of my favorite places to eat in Denver. However, I am changing my review because I was mistreated and disrespected during my last visit. The korma sauce was unusually and shockingly bland, lacking any taste whatsoever. I noticed that they stopped using saffron in their dishes. I was disappointed, but held back from saying anything because I didn't want to complain. I would have let this slide, except for the important fact that they then rejected my coupon because I bought an $8 beer over a $7 appetizer. Apparently, India is no good at mathematics. When I explained the logic, I was told that my valid coupon was still being rejected. These two instances coupled together in the same night is the reason I will never go back. They tried to save a penny, and in the end they lost a very good repeat customer.
Tasty but come on give me free naan – First time there this evening and I have to agree the food is top notch. A little pricey in my opinion, especially when you have to buy the naan bread- my meal was 13.99 with no bread. That kinda bothers me. I did get some tasty basmati rice with it though. The service was also good and they have a decent booze list.
THE BEST INDIAN FOOD BY FAR! I was first introduced to LITTLE INDIA and their delicious cuisine about 10 years ago. LITTLE INDIA serves the best Tikka Masala you will find anywhere and their dishes are always fresh and full of flavor.I have tried numerous other Indian restaurants and have been disatisfied with them all. Not one even comes close. Nowadays I travel across town for the amazing food - it's just that good! My girlfriend and I lick our plates clean and always order enough extra to have in the fridge for a couple days. So much better than other Indian restaurants you may have tried and a wonderful introduction to Indian food if you have never tasted it before. Dont forget to try there martini, Simran makes the best ones in denver no joke!! The management is great they take real good care of you. so go try one by D.U on downing and wesley
Management needs Dale Carnegie – The food here is good, but the surly, unwelcoming attitude of management and staff makes it hard to enjoy. They watch the patrons like hawks, and if you dare to visit the buffet for seconds, be prepared for glares that will make you feel like Rosie O'Donnell at the gym of the Trump Tower. I used to be a regular here, but now my rupee is spent elsewhere.
Great Indian Food – In my opinion, the best Indian food in Denver. Food is very consistent, service is good, their nan is to die for. Recommended.
Experience – As I have eaten at their other locations thought I give this one a try. Fairly new location. I think they have done a great job. The food was out of control I mean in a good way. Especially the Chicken tikka masala and the Saag Panir. The wait staff seemed very prompt to my request. I would say this is one of their pretty restaurant. I really did enjoy this one and always enjoy the other ones too.
