Over the years, I have eaten at many Indian restaurants, so after reading the reviews on how good this place was, I could not wait to give it a try. Me and my wife sat down, and first impression were good,a nice feel, candle on the table, Indian music playing, friendly staff. After receiving drinks, we looked at the menu,and... More

I have now been here 2 times and have enjoyed my evening on both occasions. The staff are welcoming and the food is excellent with a very good choice of speciality dishes. Prices are very fair for the quality of the food and presentation.

My Husband and I visited on a Saturday night, having been staying in the area over that weekend. We hadn't booked but were quickly shown to a table and offered drinks. The restuarant itself is well decorated and we particularly liked the wine bottle walls! The menu was very extensive, covering all the dishes you'd expect to see plus a... More

Although we had booked a table for 8.15 we were kept waiting for over 10 minutes before we were seated. Then it took a further 15 minutes before anyone took our order. The food was OK but not wow and the service was patchy. There are several Indian restaurants in Ringwood, although the only one in my opinion that has... More

Myself and hubby went out on Saturday night to the Indian Cottage, this has to be the best meal we have ever eaten out by far. Service was amazing, friendly, and the food was top class, presentation was superb and tasted as good. The waiter was happy to spice up our dishes when we ordered to the heat we fancied,... More

As always , great food , spot on service. Pretty busy for a Wednesday , so surrounded by the sound of people having a good time and clearly enjoying a 'midweek weekend'.

Fantastic, never had a bad meal. Shad is always attentive and cannot do enough for you. Fridays and Saturday the specials menu is a must, superb food!! Nice large outdoor covered table for warm evenings.

We average about once every 10 days in India Cottage - always at the same table! We try to make it every Friday with the same friends, but can't always. Shad is great and always welcoming, as is Lynne who has been there for a long time. If you want anything done slightly differently - hotter or milder then they... More

I turned up on the off chance (and alone) after spending the day with friends. Even though they were fully booked they very helpfully checked their booking times and seated me at a table that had been booked for later that evening. I just had a chicken tikka bhuna and mushroom rice but I have to say it was absolutely... More

We are big fans this great Indian Restaurant but the food on our last visit was truly outstanding.Well cooked and you can order it to your taste from mild to very hot! Don't go anywhere else for curry!
