My wife and I went to Little India on 3 May 2024 for an early dinner. We ordered the Paneer Tikka Masala curry mild, Dhall Makani curry medium and garlic naans. As usual the food was excellent. To finish off, we were offered a handwash...at our table which was very thoughtful. Well done to Little India for always maintaining the excellent standard. We will always go back.More

It was sad that the restaurant was quiet when we went for dinner. The whole experience was an absolute pleasure for us. We often try different Indian food establishments and Little India Musgrave is now in the top 3;pf our best to recommend for anyone...who enjoys curry and Indian food. Jaya was our wonderful server/waiter. Good conversations and quirky sense of humor (something that makes us want to return when we come back to KZN) Well done on a super restaurantMore

This spot is a perfect place to be, we have been there for our 18th marriage anniversary this April. We had the most blessed welcome firstly and the waiter that served us that night was exceptionally good. The food on the other hand was extremely...divine with such variety to choose from, the cost however is also reasonable. To Little India staff and management, Thank you for an awesome evening will highly recommend this restaurant anytime. Stay blessed. Regards Mr and Mrs Dookan.More

What a find! Little India exceeded all expectations on every level and I can't wait to go back. I am visiting Durban for work but was on a mission to find good Durban India curry and now I can't think about anything else. I am...fussy. I am a vegan. There were so many options and possibilities for me. I had the Okra Curry. I like it hot. It was hot, and tasty and spicy and rich and fantastic. So happy I found Little India.More

Best dosas in KZN, authentic South Indian cuisine. Excellent service by Yatish. Only suggestion is to have security at the entrance of the restaurant.

A friend from Cape Town recommended Little India as the one spot he always visits when he is in Durban, so on our last night here we had to try it. Absolutely delicious! The aloo jeera was particularly good, as were the mince samoosas, Little...India lamb curry, sugar beans curry and Lamb Saag. With young children, it was great that everyone could choose their preferred heat! We were served by a lovely waitress, and will definitely be back when we are next in Durban.More
