Dining review: Biju's Little Curry Shop offers big flavors of India

No one is saying that LoDo isn't a popular place to dine in downtown Denver, but it is getting a lot of competition from restaurants in the nearby RiNo neighborhood and some of the developing pockets in between.

Add to the list Biju's Little Curry Shop, a hole-in-the-wall place offering bowlfuls of big flavors that are as vibrant as its colorful walls.

It is owned and operated by Biju Thomas, who spent most of the first 10 years of his life in southern India before he and his family returned stateside to the Highland neighborhood in 1980. The food reflects his passion for the Indian region of Kerala and his own desire to come up with dynamic healthy food for bicyclists — the sport is one of his passions.
