A Truly Authentic Indian Restaurant

Restaurant, Grocery/Bakery/Deli

Little India is a tiny, 100% Vegetarian restaurant, inside an Indian grocery store; featuring bona fide authentic Indian cuisine. Which means this food is not Americanized Indian food; as it tends to be very spicy and has numerous deep-fried choices. And if that's what you're looking for then this is the place for you! Note, however, that this restaurant is contained within in a small grocery store, and hence, the actual restaurant part is extremely tiny. So, oftentimes, there is no place to sit. (For those seeking a place to sit, when no seats are avaiable at Little India, or a more-Americanized version of Indian food, the restaurant Chutney's is just around the corner facing McClintock Dr.)
