I must admit, I am a very discerning customer when it comes to my Indian cuisine! As a native Indian that has lived in NZ for my entire life (+ someone that can't cook), I am reliant on Indian restaurants in Wellington for my 'fix'! It seems there are SO many nowadays & I have eaten at most, but I always return to Little Indread moreia! Their cuisine reminds me of cooking from back home, with that 'real' taste and all the ingredients and spices I love! The food has a richness and 'hits the spot', without being overly creamy and sweet, as in some other restaurants. I can actually SEE the veggies in the curries, it's fresh - not just different coloured gravy soups! As a vegetarian, I feel the choice is great and I'm eating healthy, while still enjoying flavourful, rich cuisine! I especially recommend the paneer pakoras and mango lassi with mains! I always have a good time in the restaurant, whether with 1 or enjoying the food and good wine with a group of mates - the atmosphere is charged & the decor is not overly cheesy or too 'Indian themed'! I love the staff at Little India and the service is wonderful - they know my favourite dishes by now (malai kofta/matar paneer)! I have also had the pleasure of being shown the kitchen on 1 occasion (when I asked how they get the naan breads so light and fluffy but still crunchy) and got to give making a naan a go! I highly recommend Little India for an extremely satisfying Indian food experience (I often eat more than my stomach can handle, as my taste buds crave more) - you won't be disappointed! :) PS - I recommend the hot Gulub Jamans for desert with cold mango ice-cream - YUM YUM! TIP - when I got to go 'make my own naan' in the kitchen, it was the Owner that took me through - he has a shaved head, so be on the look out if you want a tour! ;) show less

I went to this Little India after eating in another of their restaurants, and it's good to see the quality runs across them all. The food is great, you can tell it's fresh and been made with care, we had a table of 7 which the accommodated really well and let us share dishes. The staff we're helpful and managed our big tabread morele perfectly. If you are looking for a group dinner put this place on your list! show less
