Dropped in on a Friday evening without a reservation at 7.30 was seated at 7.45pm Restaurant busy. Warm welcome drinks ordered followed by savouries. Allowed time to read the extensive menu. Meal delightfully presented, very flavoursome, good amount, thoroughly enjoyable. Spent rest of evening chatting. Left near 11pm and took away a doggy bag. Will add to my favourite list.

We really enjoyed our meal at the Red India on Sunday evening-Mother's Day, so a treat for me not to have to cook. Just turned up and had a table for four easily. Pleasant welcome and prompt service. Our son and his girlfriend were with us, both of whom are vegetarian, they were impressed with the menu and choice for... More

We love this place and go on a regular basis. The food is very reasonably priced and you can take your own wine/beer. This really keeps the cost down. They're happy to recommend different dishes and are very helpful. You always get a warm welcome and their overall service is excellent. I would recommend that you book at weekends as... More

We really enjoyed our Saturday- evening visit to Red India whilst in Oakham. Highlights - well it goes without saying the FOOD - generous portions, beautifully presented and so tasty. Nice touch - friendliness of the staff - had a good chat about our home town and various places to eat. Added bonus - take your own bottle - loved... More

I have been here on a few occasions but this time I ordered to take out. I ordered the victor's vindaloo and I must say it did not dissapoint! The Chef in this place is Fantastic! He always delivers top notch food and this vindaloo sure was fiery. Try this place if you want authentic indian cuisine it always on... More

Had a meal at the Red Indian on Sunday evening, found it via Trip Adviser and soooo glad we did. I have to say the meal was just full of flavour, suckulant and generally could not be faulted. The staff were very polite and entered in to general converstaion without being patronising or pushy - just down right nice people.... More

Visited this restaurant on Saturday evening. Telephoned in advance to book a table and the person I spoke to helpfully told me that payment had to be made in cash and that I could bring my own wine or beer. Received a very warm welcome, a handshake upon arrival and shown quickly to a table. Although not licensed to sell... More

A really nice place. If your ordering over the phone or sitting in it doesn't make a difference to the level of service you receive from the staff. There is always a hand shake and a hello/goodbye and a door held open. Food is lovely. Just bring your own alcohol if you want a glass of wine with your meal... More

I have visited Red India a few times, the most recent time December 2014 with my family. Everyone seems to receive a warm welcome. As a family we rarely book ahead and just tend to turn up - this does not seem to be a problem as they pull out all the stops to find you a table. They have... More

My husband and I ate here after reading so many good reviews on Tripadvisor. I am happy to say that we weren't disappointed. The food was very fresh, very well presented and really tasty. The staff were friendly and attentive. We wouldn't hesitate to eat here again next time we visit this area.
