“A Great Reason to Visit Newton Stewart”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

The frontage of Little India, Victoria St, Newton Stewart, may not grab you (we hummed and aa-ed before taking the plunge) and though the interior is neat, clean and comfortable, the Taj Mahal it aint. But, if you have a palate for the most tasty of Indian flavours, - good, wholesome fresh ingredients, suffused with fresh herbs and spices, then you are passing up a truly rare cuisine experience.
Within you will find no commercially manufactured chicken nuggets floating in suspiciously startling red or unbelievably yellow sauces, but dishes of exceptional flavour, prepared by a master in their craft. Even the rice had a distinctive individuality, and the Nans - clearly made there and then - were as light as a feather. And the price? Around £25 for courtesy popadums and pickles, two main meals with special rices and nan bread.
The boys who opened this exceptional treasure came down from Glasgow to fill a gap in the market, and their delight in your delight is evident. Of the dishes we had on the evening every one was a jewel (We can highly recommend the King Prawn Tikka Lahori saag and my own favourite was the Peri Peri Massala). Be aware, they do not have a license, but will happy open and provide glasses for a BYOB, conveniently available from the CO-Op a couple of doors down the street. Naturally, they also run a thriving Take-Away Service.
We will be back.

“awesome!”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

We booked a table earlier in the week as we were visiting the area for the weekend. We got to a lttle place and were seated straight away, I will say I booked a table for 4 and took 6 people and all was fine with the owners. Its a bring your own beers and wine place with a supermarket just down the road. We did that! Then ate glorious food until we could were stuffed! I recommend the tandoori kixed grill ! Huge portions, and if like us you'd been riding the trails centres, it was well needed! Brilliant service, lots of nibbles in between courses and a lovely atmosphere! We shall return! Thankyou

“little treasure”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

the food and staff were outstanding, this place doesn't have a drinks license but the co-op next door is open late and it has all the drink you need, Little India gave us openers and glasses and were more than happy to do so, there were 6 lads all of us were stuffed and the whole lot came to £75 (inc tip) WOW

“Food good but can't quite manage when it is busy”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

Ate here when visiting Newton Stewart. Plus side is that it is one of very very few places that are open in the evening in NS, particularly if you don't want to eat in a hotel. The waiter was very polite and explained the menu. We chose the buffet option which was good value at £11.95 a head. The restaurant is not licensed, but the waiter advised we could pop down the road to the supermarket to buy alcoholic drinks and they would supply the glasses. Soft drinks here are a bit pricey at £3 a can. The food was good and tasty. Unfortunately the waiters/chef did not keep an eye on the hot buffet dishes and they ran down to just sauce - we saw several guests swishing the spoons around in the hope of finding some meat. The restaurant provides take away as well as seated diners, but they were clearly not managing the busy periods. It seemed chaotic and there was a wait between courses....whilst some waiting for take away meals got half their order at a time or were waiting for quite a while. At one point a man brought a huge gas canister through the restaurant on a trolley - they had clearly run out of gas, possibly for a stove!!! Despite the chaotic feel to the place, this was a decent place for food and worth giving it a try.
