Little India Restaurant Informative - Not Impressed... - Service and The Taste
DENVER, COLORADO -- Let me preface this INFORMATIVE by not insinuating that this place doesn't serve good authentic "Indian Food." Maybe it is an acquired taste or it just doesn't appeal to my palate. I stopped by there for lunch this week and was seated quickly, served my ice water then left alone for what seemed to be my whole lunch hour! No menu and at the time the place wasn't that crowded. Finally the waitress asks me if I want the "lunch buffet?" Sure, that would be quicker and I can try a variety of some good Indian cuisine. They have gotten good reviews out here.
I make it over to the buffet and try the Tandori Chicken and some other dishes that presentation wise left a lot to be desired. Maybe they should translate into English what you are serving yourself at the buffet? The deep fried vegetable concoction was pretty good, kind of a Tempura batter but eveything else was curry based and not to my liking spice wise. Yes, I realize that this was a buffet but can my Tandori Chicken have white meat as well instead of just drumsticks and dried out thighs?
The salad bar basically had "fresh greens" no tomatoes, just cucumber slices and a runny yogurt based dressing which for some of us is enough to bring on flashbacks from prior dining mishaps if you chose to bypass the RANCH DRESSING! Never was I offered a refill on my water and my first plate sat there for a while after reloading to get my nine dollars worth of this stuff.
As stated earlier, this isn't a knock on Indian cuisine but rather my humble opinion on what I had.
There won't be a return visit to this place...
