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.

Excellent service and food. Extensive menu. Real honest Indian food. No ghee floating in it like some places have. Busy. Friendly staff.

Bring your own booze is a great plus to this restaurant as you can have exactly what wine you prefer and eat it with a delicious dish! Wide variety of dishes and brilliant service with a smile

Have been here regularly over the last two years. Very warm friendly service and good freshly prepared dishes. Reasonable prices particularly because they don't have a licence and you are encouraged to take your own favourite wine or beer. What more can be said, a good evening out!
