I tried Little India twice. Everytime I came up, take the set of Chapati & Aloo Matar which is a perfect combination. The Samosa is nice too!

Not just the food, but staff are nice, especially the Indian guy, who is the manager of the place. He is friendly, always takin' care & show the best thing to have & combine with. Would definately come back to this place more!

When I travel, I am a frequent diner in Indian restaurants. They are my culinary thing! I sought out a new one during my first evening on a return trip to Hanoi. Based solely on proximity to my hotel, I serendipitously chose Little India.

Upon arrival at the brightly lit ground level which had three nicely adorned tables, I was politely greeted by a hostess at a reception desk who directed me to the second floor. Navigating the circular stairwell, I was next greeted by the manager, Mr. Chandan, who could not have been kinder to me, or to nearby guests, as I observed. The menu had two parts— one part had numbered pictographs of the offerings and the other had prices linked to the numbers. I ordered by picture. Mr. Chandan took my order on an iPad, repeated it for certainty, and a short wait followed. My selections were the vegetable pakora (62k VND), served with two condiments— spicy green sauce and a more spicy sauce with chilis, garlic and oil, the latter being extra delicious. For the entree, I ordered the Indian special vegetarian thani (170k VND). It was outstanding. Of the five items, the eggplant was the best I’ve ever had. I wanted more. The carrot dish was delicious too— slightly sweet with a rich flavor. The potato curry was fine too, adequately tasty and slightly spicy. The rice and corn selections were standard fare. The cost of my meal, with a large bottled water(40k VND), was a reasonable 272k VND.
The restaurant was very clean and sanitary. It was nicely appointed and well lit. The ceiling lighting on the second floor was appealing with its blue hue. The tables were stable, the chairs were comfortable and a linen napkin was provided, along with paper napkins(not tissues!)
The staff on the second floor was very friendly and did their best with the wifi, which was not functioning during my visit. As I departed, one if the staffers sought me out to give me my unfinished large bottle of water, which was considerate. The same young lady who initially greeted me on arrival also gave me a smiling, polite farewell.
The food at Little India was exceptional, the people were customer-focused and made the dining experience a comfortable one; and the physical facility was fine. I’ll likely return.

The food and service here were both faultless. My partner is Indian and can vouch for the authenticity of the food served here. The portions are generous, and the owner is extremely attentive to the customer’s every need.

We had:
• Paneer Pakora: beautiful, crispy, and light. I could easily have bags of these.
• Chilli Potato Bhaji: has a gorgeous crisp batter, and a fresh capsicum within filled with a delicious potato mixture.
• Chicken Chettinad: very flavourful sauce that packed a punch, the chicken pieces were moist and tender.
• Garlic Naan and Butter Naan were both good. The garlic one was especially fragrant.
• Vegetable raita: quite refreshing but interesting spin on the traditional raita as this had green beans, carrot and capsicum. Nice crunchy texture
• Mango Lassi: fresh and delicious, big serving.

We loved dining here and would definitely return if we had more time in Ha Noi.

Came here because the reviews were raving about it! Soooo delicious! Went for dinner one night loved it and then headed to Ha long bay for a night and decided to drive all the way back to Hanoi to finish our stay in Vietnam on motorbike! The only thing that I could think of was the chicken tiki Masala, jeera pulao rice and garlic naan for the 3 hour drive! Service is always super lovely! Food amazing!
