Really nice food, my boyfriend and I tried a new dish that I'd not heard of but recommended by waiter - chicken som som, it was delicious! They had all the usual curries but others too. Was perhaps more expensive than other indians I've had but good portion size and the food tasted of good quality and the service was... More

All dishes were excellent and portion sizes were just right. Staff were very friendly and service was quick. No alcoholic drinks were served in the restaurant and we were told to go over the road and buy it and bring it in which was a bit weird and the cokes we also ordered were flat which was a bit disappointing...

I love locally and eat from little india often. This past week I have had two takeaways. At the moment we as a town are at our busiest, so naturally I wouldn't expect the same efficient service as out of season, but boy was I wrong! The food is still just as amazing as quieter times, and although the collection... More

Decided to use Little India for a takeaway meal. Very quick service and meal still hot when we returned home. Food was good quality but found the Dhansak a little too spicy. Good value for money and worth a try.

When I got to Penzance every year I got to this restaurant, good to see it doing better. The food is nice and tasty, service attentive, But some of the hot dish are more hotter than general restaurants in london.

I hardly know what to say. Having booked this place on recommendation we arrived to be shown to a very small table by an Indian person who couldn't raise a smile. Another younger one, who needed to learn how to speak, approached the table and had to ask us three times whether we wanted a soft drink before we understood... More

As someone has remarked some of the staff could do with a bit of a smile now and then. In reality it's the food that matters though. Bombay mix was very nice, good mixture of veg with plenty of protein in the check peas naan and rice good and the pickle tray served with the popadoms had some new and... More

We went in for dinner mainly because it was the only place open on a Sunday evening. But having gone in, we enjoyed our meal. Does not serve alcohol so popped across to a Costcutters across the road for a beer.

We have been regular customers here for a considerable amount of time, the food is always excellent however the service regularly leaves a lot to be desired - I think over time we've become desensitised to it as they sometimes struggle for staff, nevertheless its been recent experiences elsewhere which have opened my eyes to the fact that, sometimes, Little...
