This has to be the worst Indian I have ever been to. My fish dish was forgotten and then they brought me out a fish dish that looked awful. Obviously the dish was chucked together when they realised they had forgotten. Stay away from this place.

Amazing lemon grass chicken and jalfrezi chicken served promptly and hot with a smile. Highly recommend this Indian, can get busy though. Large group came in as we were leaving so we timed it right. Would go early. Enjoy!

I came in here as there wasn't anyone in here. The rest of the street had diners all packed in tight so decided to give Little India a try. Polite & friendly staff. The menu is as you'd expect but expensive compared to most curry houses in the area & due to the decor I thought I may of had... More

We dined here whilst here for the weekend. We were turned away by another nearby restaurant as we didn't have a booking and so glad we were. Food was delicious, piping hot, the taste was really good and the service was really friendly. Nice romantic place to take someone and the prices are fair too.

We saw there was a Chef's Special of a Briyani & entered, dripping wet .. we were seated on one of the two window tables .. the... More

4 visited whilst working in Bournemouth on a quiet Monday evening. We were the only people in there. Food pleasant and service acceptable although nothing to rave over. I chose Prawn Jalfrezi & Peshwari Naan which was tasty. £93 for 4 of us so not the cheapest considering not big drinkers. As Indians go, especially as quiet then they could... More

Well there you are - in Bournemouth on a course and you are on your own looking for somewhere for an evening meal - so head for Old Christchurch Road which is lined with a mtriad of eateries. Didnt go for one of the glitzier venues as they seemed to be full of large groups (And being on your own... More

Likes: + Friendly staff + Nice ambience + Nice vegetable biryani + Plenty of seating (empty when we arrived at around 6:30pm) Dislikes: - Lack of attention to detail (waiter forgot what drinks we'd ordered) - The dishes seemed to have an acute shortage of vegetables (carrots, peas, bhindis, broccoli etc) e.g. the vegetable korma was mainly pieces of onion,...

They have advertised the hyderabad biryani and as I come from an Asian background I wanted to try some to see how good it is. The rice was of poor quality. It was frozen and reheated. The chicken pieces were added instead of cooked with it. Would never go there again and if they want I can teach them how... More
