Little India - Dunedin

The Little India Story: 

The recipes we use have come from the kitchen of our Grandmother Premjit Kaur Gill. She has trained every one of Little India Dunedin's head chefs in her own kitchen in Chandigarh.

Sukhi and Joanna Gill began with a small dairy, and adjoining fish and chip shop, in Ravensbourne just outside Dunedin.

 When Sukhi's mother and father visited from India, Sukhi decided to add a few Indian dishes to the fish and chip shop's menu.

Soon there were lines of people down the street wanting to enjoy this new Indian food. With a single electric stove struggling to keep up with demand, Joanna (a chef) and Sukhi (an accountant) decided to open a New Zealand Indian restaurant.

After training in a family friend's restaurant in Australia, Sukhi returned and opened the first Little India restaurant in 1991.

We cook the legendary Indian food dishes of North India, The Punjab. Our careful preparation makes our Indian food beautiful to behold and addictive to the palate.

We also use traditional tandoors which have a clay pot and are fired by charcoal. They give our naans and meat their authentic flavour.

We can cater to your dietary requirements. Our menu is Gluten Free apart from our breads and a couple of dishes. We can cater for people that are dairy free and vegan also.

We have a very warm and inviting atmosphere. We can accommodate romantic dinners for two and larger group bookings.

You can enjoy Little India at home also. We do takeaways and home deliveries. We also have on online ordering system that is very easy to use with pictures of all our food.
