First off, it's great to have a place to get some Indian food in the area. I've been disappointed that there isn't much to speak of in the Fells/Little Italy/Harbor East area, so Little India is a welcome addition.
I ordered the Vindaloo spicy (my go-to when it comes to Indian food) and the dish was satisfying. The sauce was rich and flavorful with a good amount of heat without being overly spicy, and the cubes of chicken and potato were tasty. The rice was also aromatic, if on the oily side.
However, the restaurant was totally empty at around noon on a rainy Saturday and the decor felt tired. I also ordered my food online and paid when I placed the order, but there was some confusion on their end and I ended up having to provide them a receipt to avoid paying a second time in the store. The place just opened and I'm sure they're still working out some kinks, so no big deal. But it was the first time that had ever happened to me.
Lastly, at $16-19 for a curry with rice or naan, the price point doesn't feel like a great value. But given the dearth of options nearby, I'm very happy to have Little India in the neighborhood and will order again, though might save it for another rainy day.
This is a great addition to Little Italy's restaurant scene. The food is terrific and the people are lovely. We moved into the area recently and, while we love all the good Italian food we like good Indian food, too.
I had chicken tikka masala. Perfect! The daal Delhi, delicious.my husband had butter chicken and loved it. It is a pleasant room with nice linens, beautiful serving bowls and friendly people.The menu has lots of options so we will be back soon.
I tried this place once for an event at work where we ordered samosas and chai and the owners/cook were very prompt and gracious. The samosas were delicious. Well cooked and crispy.
We then tried it for takeout. The bhindi could have used more flavor and the lamb kabob was ok but their speciality lamb shank dish (badla mausam) was unique and delicious.
Definitely a good addition to the neighborhood and we'll be getting food from here again.
Very good tikki marsala! I also recommend to get the meine moille. I came by here with some friends for the first time and the staff were very polite! Overall a nice restaurant and definitely worth trying :)
We came here for an early dinner at my neighbor's recommendation. It was quite good. We started off with a veggie samosa which came with some pickled vegetables and chutney. Delicious and hot! Then we shared chicken tika masala which could have used a little more heat but was yummy along with a side of rice, garlic naan, saag, and lentils. It was all yummy. Service was good too. Also yelp has a nice coupon we used will definitely be back to try lunch!
I stumbled upon this restaurant last week, and was surprised (and pleased) by the delicious food, excellent service, and fair prices. Our group of 7 was quickly seated, and started with refreshing Mango Lassis. We ordered the pecora appetizer and agreed it was very tasty, and came with a lovely tray of three sauces to enhance the flavor.
I ordered the Baigan Bartha: roasted eggplant with onions, yoghurt, tomatoes and peas. The savory flavors melded well together for a great meal. My companions had a variety of dishes, and we all shared, so I can say they were all very good. I like Indian food and seek out Indian restaurants, so I have a lot to compare to. This is the real deal.
The service was very attentive but not overbearing. They even brought us an extra meal for us to try: Daal Delhi, which we all enjoyed.
The restaurant's location is surprising, as it's in the heart of Little Italy (hence the cute Little India name). Don't let that deter you - this place is worth checking out. It's family owned and operated and just opened recently. Support our local businesses and give it a try!
Got a chance to visit this place for the first time today. Food is surprisingly good. Better than most of the other Indian restaurant I tried in Baltimore. Place looks outdated which is kind of fine with me as long food is good. I tried there lunch special which is going to replace by lunch buffet soon. I am definitely coming back for that.
Food was well seasoned, well portioned and and decently priced. Service was good as well.
I work in the Little Italy area and like many people stumbled upon this place and I couldn't be more happy that I did. I am only saddened by the fact that more people don't know about this gem. Samosa was excellent, chicken tandoori came out sizzling and the naan is some of the best I've had outside NYC. Service was friendly and prompt. I don't care about decor of a restaurant. I care about service and quality of food and this place gets top marks for both! I can't wait for their lunch buffet to come back!
We were two people and went there for dinner. We have ordered vegetable samosa, chicken tikka, and lamb biryani. All dishes were so delicious and fresh. Little India is managed and owned by a great Indian family. "The food is being cooked by the owner himself". Their service is so great and can't ask for better. They also have served a complimentary delicious dessert. The prices are very reasonable when compared to the quality.
Lunch specials are out, but it's been replaced by a lunch buffet. My approach: first plate, get a little bit of everything. Say, I'm full - I shouldn't have more. Second plate: Go back for my favorite things. Say I'm full - I shouldn't have more. Third plate: go for the spinach paneer and rice, cause "I'm being healthy". Say I shouldn't have any more. Fourth plate: Whatever they have up for dessert, fingers crossed it's the gulab juman, cause they are great here.
So, I do love this place, but if you notice me not checking in here a ton, it's cause I just enjoy it a bit TOO much for my waste line.
This place is awesome! I stopped by for a late lunch ( about 2 p.m.) and they had their buffet set up. Being in a bit of a hurry I thought, why not try the buffet? I was floored by the flavors! They had a nice variety of offerings and all the dishes they had there on the buffet line were fresh and hot! What made this even better was the fresh Na'an (if you can call it that, as it was really thin in the middle, and puffy around the outer edges) bread, fresh off the oven! I'm not from India so I can hardly call myself an authority on Indian food, but the bouquet of flavors was so vast, that it lingers on my clothes still 20 minutes after I left. I will absolutely visit this place again!
Best Indian restaurant I've come across in Baltimore. I ordered butter chicken and garlic naan through orderup. It arrived hot and was delicious! I have found some of the butter chicken and tika masala that I've ordered in Baltimore to be lacking in flavor. The butter chicken from this restaurant definitely had all of the spices I expect in the dish. I will be ordering again.
