We ate Malbar fish curry and Bombay Aloo. It comes with rice. The food was fresh and tasty. Naan was soft and good. Mango lassi also good. We enjoy the food.

We're backpacking through town and called in for some take away. Awesome friendly service and great food, naan bread was some of the best we've had. Rice was also included when you order a curry which was new to us (we're from Australia).

Great service, took me out of my Indian food comfort zone, absolutely delicious curry and one of the better naans I have had, was also bigger than my head. Yum.

Nelson is so diverse with all their cultures and cuisines and by far Little India outshines all other Indian restaurants in Nelson.. The flavours are so intense that you can actually feel like you in India. Serving sizes for above adequate with free poppadoms and...More
