The Cuba Street restaurant is my little ‘nook’ in the city – I love the more casual ambiance there. It’s usually quieter than Blair Street, so I can enjoy a relaxing dinner with friends, or come in during my lunch break & read a book while eating. The food is awesome, full of all the spices that I know are good for me – I try to go for hotter dishes (they ask you beforehand, as all prepared fresh while you wait & fast enough for me to eat during wk break) during winter, as it really opens up my sinuses! I especially love the character – I like to sit at the table by the window & watch crazy Cuba St life pass by. I have some good chats with the wait staff & Managers when I’m solo! I have also been known to pop in during a night out, for a shahi paneer & a few beers with mates, as it’s on my night haunts path!

I have been to a few of the Little India’s around Wellington and they are all FANTASTIC, the food is fresh and is full of flavour, the staff were friendly and knew what they were talking about and it’s a big menu with all the normal dishes and plenty of others when you want to try something new, price wise you get value for every dollar.

Great location with great food. Very cosy and relaxed.
The menu is comprehensive and the food first class.
I eat at Little India wherever they are available.
The staff were friendly and offered good information about the various dishes.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys great Indian food.

Great food, great service.Will be back. The best Indian food i have tasted in a long time. The next time i am in Wellington will try your restaurant in Blair St. Their menu offers a great variety. Enjoyed ordering a mix of dishes to share amongst the 6 of us.

After a few trips to Little India, I really can’t stand to go anywhere else for Indian food. All the dishes are amazing, the wait staff are kind and helpful, and all the venues are just a cut above other Indian restaurants (for those who don’t know, Little India has many locations, including in the beautiful Mungavin Homestead in Porirua).
In terms of the menu, my personal favourites are the Malai Kofta (gorgeous balls of Indian cottage cheese, potato and spices, in a rich gravy), Palak Paneer (Indian cottage cheese again, but this time in a spinach sauce, which I like to pretend makes it a health food) and the Prawn Jhalfrezee. It seems to me the Little India might have paved the way for offering Jhalfrezee in New Zealand, as I hadn’t seen it on any menu until I went to Little India, and now it is offered at several other places (though it is nowhere near as good as the mouth-watering offering at Little India).
I often ordered from Little India when I was eating a lot of take-out as a shift worker, and always found it came quicker than I expected, and piping hot. SO much nicer than getting a floppy old pizza, and pretty affordable given it’s so filling. It’s definitely nicer to actually visit the bistro, though, because the staff are really so attentive it makes it seem like such a treat to visit.
Forget all the other Indian places that serve up batch-cooked slop. Little India’s food really is a cut above, at a reasonable price, and with a little extra style.

Friendly staff… but unfortunately exceptionally disappointing food. Absolutely no taste to our Rogan Josh and Chicken Korma curries whatsoever. Have eaten at the Dunedin Little India before and loved it – but I will not be returning to this restaurant.

The wait staff are rude, unfriendly, and have NO grasp of English. It is incredibly alienating to be in a restaurant and know that you are being talked about in a language you do not understand. Body language, you see, is near-universal.
Little India treats its staff terribly – they do not have employment contracts, for instance – and, as a result, has incredibly high turnover; they have gone though at least four delivery drivers this year alone. This is no way to run a business; I want to give my money to open, welcoming, establishments who pride themselves on their knowledgeable staff and excellent service. Little India: small-minded.

Cannot speak for others’ experiences with Little India, so will post this review based on a first-time order from them.
We have previously ordered from another Indian restaurant close by but fancied a change, especially from my wife’s viewpoint, as she’s vegetarian and she often finds it difficult to try new dishes, there often being such a limited range to choose from!
Ordered on-line on Sunday afternoon, hoping for an 18:00 delivery, after having spent time going through their excellent menu.
Sue (veggie) went for the vegetarian biryani and some pakoras. The biryani came as a very generous serving indeed and the medium spice we opted for was perfect. It was superbly cooked, fresh ingredients only and was thoroughly enjoyed with riata and poppadoms.
The carnivore ordered the boti kebab and butter chicken (medium strength spice) and poppadoms. The lamb kebab was superb and so obviously freshly cooked; quite delicious! The butter chicken was a big improvement on the oft bland versions served up locally. It was cooked with more tomatoes and perfectly spiced. The dish came with basmati rice.
From ordering on-line, a quick call to the Cuba branch confirmed they had my order and that it would be delivered just before the 18:00 time we wanted. The lady who took my call confirmed my order and even said “You must be Norman”.
It being our first order with Little India, we are very pleased with their service, delivery and of course, really great food.
We will definitely be ordering from them again and hope to gradually work our way through their menu!
Highly recommended and worthy of their recent awards from Wellingtonians.

I placed my on-line order using Little India website as I usually order however this time around the service and food was terrible. I placed an order at 7pm and did not receive the order until 9.20pm. The women attendant on the phone was rude and needs to learn basics of customer service rather than giving me excuses and wrong reasons for the order delay. When asked why did initially I was informed it will be wait of 50 minutes rather than more than 2 hours reply I got was, “some times it takes more than 3 hours and we have new driver for home delivery’, ‘the person waited outside the door for 20 minutes your house, were you not at home? ” Yes, I was home entire evening and I work in hospitality so know how this system works, don’t give me your silly excuses. When asked if the food is going to be warm as the delivery guy has been driving around for more than hour, reply I got was it was cooked 45 minutes ago, this means on first occasion you lied to me by saying 20 minutes ago the delivery guy was at the door and waited outside the door for 20 minutes. Food was COLD, I will never order home delivery from here and I will warn you to enter the restaurant if you are prepare to take risk on bad customer service.

The food is OK even small portion for vegetarian dish but the service is real bad. I went there with other 16 colleagues for lunch today. I understand that it’s busy hour and you guys need to rush for serving customers. But when this Asian waitress distribute the plates, she almost ‘throw’ the plate on our desk. Also, the walking path is very narrow, she keep pushing people chair without giving little manner saying ‘excuse me’ or ‘sorry’. She’s very rude and unprofessional at all.
I like Little India but hire a rough waitress like this asian gal will only bring down the reputation
