The best asian food in the town

Although this small restaurant has very limited parking nearby, if you take the trouble to walk to this location, you can enjoy some excellent meals. You need to take your own alcohol, but there is an all-hours shop a few doors away. The staff are very welcoming and friendly, and attentive to your... read more

Ordered takeaway for 4. All chicken - two Korma, Rogan Josh & Dupiaza. Two Rice and two Nans. £45 and they could not take payment by Card hence had to go to town centre and return. Curries were runny and without flavour. Rogan seemed to be a few sliced tomatoes chucked into a standard sauce. Korma runny and tasteless. Dupiaza... More

We went for a meal whilst visiting relatives in Oakham. Unlicensed (take your own bottle/s). Very friendly and polite. Very good food. Excellent value for money.

This is a very good Indian Restaurant and is well hyped by a lot of people as the best in Oakham. Unfortunately I cannot agree. Some of this was not the restaurants fault as some of the clientele on a nearby table were a little loud. Given that we were the only other table ushered into a rather cold back... More

When you see that an Indian restaurant is a "bring your own" alcohol establishment you could be forgiven for thinking that it is a lower standard, cheap n' cheerful type of place. That is not the case here and the decor and service is that of a top class restaurant. The menu is comprehensive and imaginative and includes a good... More

My partner and I visited this restaurant on Sunday 3rd May after having reviewed the tripadvisor comments a few weeks ago. We were not disappointed by the quality of food, the service we received or the restaurant itself. It was fairly quiet but it was a Sunday evening so to be expected. It is a "byo" alcohol restaurant and they... More

We have had takeaway from Red India (Oakham) and their sister restaurant Red Indiia (Uppingham). The quality of food and service is second to none for an English Indian restaurant. We are looking forward to dining in their restaurant for a real 'authentic' experience.

My husband and I went for a lovley meal in this place. They had unusual curries on their menu named after their locals. We tried John Norris special and Batkin Prawn. When the food arrived it was presented well and the nan bread was piping hot. The food here is superb as is the service. You have to take your... More
