Only a stone’s throw from the east bank of Cherry Creek and just a little way south of Governor’s Park sits one of the most unassuming Indian restaurants in Denver. While it may not immediately grab your attention from the outside, it will captivate your taste buds and spark your Indian spirit once you step inside. This special spot is Little India of Denver on 6th Ave: one of the best Indian restaurants in Denver, Colorado.
The Little India Restaurant & Bar is one of the best Indian restaurants that the people of Denver have at their disposal.
