Not too far from the University of Denver’s main campus, tucked in among a row of ordinary businesses, you can find one the best Indian restaurants in Denver. Not because it’s really fancy or constantly busy, but because it offers an authentic Indian food experience. This hidden gem is Little India of Denver on Downing Street, and we invite you to experience everything it has to offer.
Our Downing location offers a variety of delectable appetizers so that you can get your stomach ready for the meal to come. We also offer appetizers for both meat eaters and vegetarian Indian food lovers equally. The momo can be made up either with chicken or vegetarian, and you can rest assured that both options are delicious. For an Indian take on an American classic, try the tandoori wings. For something a little lighter, the pakora masala will really hit the spot.
Everybody knows about the kabobs and curries that Denver Indian restaurants typically offer, but we take it a step further. Along with the classics, we can make you a lightly spiced dish like the lamb korma – or something more tangy like the shrimp bhuna with plenty of peppers, onions and tomatoes. For foodies who like to play with fire, the chicken vindaloo will test the mettle and tongue of anybody who wants to take a bite.
Indian cuisine has long been known for its vegetarian offerings, and Little India is proud to continue that tradition. Many people also refer to us as the best vegan Indian restaurant in Denver. While you may need to ask the server specifically about our vegan offerings, you can find our popular vegetarian dishes listed on our menu. The vegetable curry is a longtime favorite for both the house staff and our regulars. The navratan korma is lighter, but no less delicious. And of course, you certainly can’t go wrong with our channa masala.
Our team at Little India of Denver on Downing Street wants to make sure that everybody is able to enjoy authentic Indian food – no matter where they are. We offer Little India catering so that you can bring the biryani and samosas to your next special event. You can order Little India of Denver delivery to bring the delights of our kitchen to your dining room. We also own and operate a Little India food truck in Denver, so be sure to keep an eye out for us around town!
The menu has many exotic Indian dishes for your taste buds to savour. Dishes from all over India, be it the northern samosas, curries, and naans, or the sea-food specialities from the south, as well as sweets like gulab jamun. The restaurant serves Vegan food as well, with all dishes prepared with great care and passion. The Bar has its fair share of red and white wines along with beer from Indian brands like Kingfisher. As for the Lunch Buffet service, there is no need to elaborate much on its excellence but the fact that it has been voted the Best Lunch Buffet for 16 consecutive years. The catering service is another jewel in the crown of Little India Restaurant & Bar, with the restaurant also providing the options of takeaway and free home delivery. Making an online reservation in advance is a good option, given the restaurant’s profound popularity. The restaurant’s food trucks add to the charm of its food, with people crowding the food trucks wherever they go.
The family has been living in Colorado for more than twenty years and decided to take their passion and love for cooking and serve it on a plate to the people of Denver in 1998. Little did they know that their love would be reciprocated with such magnanimity that their restaurant would be voted the Best Indian Restaurant for 16 years on the trot?
