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.

We came across this place by asking locals for a good indian restaurant. We were guided to this place and told to take our own wine and even shown where the off licence was. Amazing place as they allow young children as well. The staff were great and recommended all of our dishes to us and suggested that our young... More

Nice restaurant and consistently good food but no better than the food you can get in other good restaurants at half the price. Also do not like their habit of adding gratuities without making it explicit on the bill. Simply bad form.

I visited this retaurant with friends after seeing all the good reviews. The menu was different as it had dishes in the names of local customers. Food was excellent (we had John Norris special). The service was brilliant as well. We didn't have desserts as they don't have any. They take cash only!

I was visiting Rutland Water and decided to look around for a relaxing, quality and fine-dining experience. What an experience it was! 'Red India' ticked all the above boxes and beyond. The friendly, smart and well-mannered staff greeted us at our table(straight away) without us pre-booking which was shocking as they were almost full-house. The food was superb quality, from... More

Just OK. Nothing special. We didn't take any alcohol in with us - happy to pay for soft drinks but thought it a bit rude to be charged £1.50 for a jug of iced water!!

We didn't eat in, but grabbed a welcome takeaway from the Red India. Their novelty is to include menu items named and invented by diners, so look out for some different fare to many Indian restaurants. The food was good - it was a lovely change to eat something a little different to traditional Indian restaurants. Beware that they only... More

I experienced Red India when it first opened in 2008 while visiting Oakham, and it as good, if not better, than it was then. Great service and fantastic food. The lamb and chicken were moist and flavorful, the seasoning just the right amount of heat. Highly recommended.
