Absolutely amazing Indian food! One of the best Indian restaurants we have eaten at - and we have eaten our fair amount of Indian food! Great veg options and the best customer service I've experienced in a long time! :)

This is a great place to get a delicious curry in a lovely setting. The food was wonderful and the service great.

Wonderful service. Efficient considering how busy they were. Happy to put a table together for our family of 10 with only 15 mins of warning, even though they were pretty full. Yummy butter chicken and butter paneer. Generous on the rice and garlic naans were huge. Mango lassi was pretty good too! Highly recommend.

This was our fourth visit to Little India over a period of years and it never fails to please. There is something on the menu for everyone, even small children. The restaurant is in a lovely secluded spot,tucked away from the hustle of the city. The staff are always friendly and helpful. Highly recommend.

We have visited all of the Little India's in Wellington and all of them are amazing. We really like the one in Cuba Street. You get a good mix of non veg and veg options here. Will recommend highly of this place.

We have chosen to present some of the more characteristic, yet legendary dishes from North India, especially the Punjab. Our preparation makes our food beautiful to behold and addictive to the palate.
