Friendly staff, not over attentive, attractive restaurant and excellent food - great choice of unusual veggie dishes, good 'special rice', naan and piratha excellent. Recommended, but as it hasn't got an alcohol license take your tipple with you - if you don't, there is an off licence a few yards away.

Well, the Red India was recommended to us by some lovely folk in a pub in the square. We were warned to take a bottle, which we did, and there's a Tesco around the corner if you need more. The food was slightly more expensive than I'm used to but quality and flavour were both amazing. Also a lovely warm... More

Not being a huge fan of Indian food, as I have a low tolerance to hot food, I agreed to treat my husband by agreeing to go for a curry. The problem is I don't like the creamy mild dishes so want a medium one, which are normally too hot, and I am disappointed and hungry. I was so impressed... More

This remains my favourite Indian in the town, but it is no longer extremely good value for money as I previously review. To be honest the food is quite expensive for what it is .......... but I have no complaints about the food itself.

I reviewed this restaurant a year ago and the fact that, on our annual week-long pilgrimage to Rutland, the first outing we undertook was to the Red India shows that we thought highly of it. The food remains good, though not outstanding, and the prices seem to have risen significantly, so that a main course and a naan, plus the... More

Some friends said we should go with them to this place but said "they don't serve alcohol but you can take your own, and by the way no credit cards only cash" My reply was "what sort of place you taking us to?" So armed with booze and cash we went! What a surprise! Tables nicely set with crisp white... More

We tried this restaurant for the first time after reading reviews on here and were really amazed at how lovely the food was, the selection of dishes and also how friendly the staff all were. You take your own alcohol with you which was no problem at all as there is a local supermarket and a little off licence about... More

We had our first meal here recently and found a menu offering a choice of well thought out dishes, from mild to very hot. The staff were very attentive and took much pride in their work. The meal was presented with attention to detail and excellent quality. Red India will see much of us in future.
