Old Faithful Does It Again

I have lived in Kettering for the best part of 25 years and started going to the Red Rose soon after arriving. Then I seemed to drift away for no other reason than a busy life and sampling other eateries. Well I am pleased to report that I have returned and enjoyed a number fresh tasting meals... read more

In this locale the choice of Indian food is high, but the Red Rose continues the highest standard in value for money. Their ability to provide a huge variety of dishes and an excellent service standard is proof of their longevity. A long standing business which I first visited in the early 80's

We have had take away and eaten in at the red rose many times and never once had a meal that was anything other than excellent. Staff are always first class too.

A group of us visited recently. We opted for the £9.95 menu which required a separate document from which to order. Starter, main, side and rice or nan. I had chicken chat on purée which was great. Chicken tikka for main.... Much smaller than a regular menu portion. Chana dhall was great and rice. Altogether not too bad bad not... More

Went with two friends for the first time a week ago. We were seated in a nice quiet table in the restaurant away from the family tables which was a nice touch. The menu was aplenty and the food was well flavoured with the service being attentive without over powering. When restaurants go to all the effort they do why... More

I've only visited this restaurant once but can recommend it highly. The food was delicious, the dansak exactly as I like it, reasonably hot, spicy and slightly sour. The rice portion was perfect for me, more than enough for one, and the vegetable (saag) was freshly cooked. In particular I would like to recommend their breads: the puree was wonderful,... More

I had ordered food from this restaurant for delivery for the first time, the garlic chicken dish was delicious , the aloo paratha was great , and the salad i had asked them to prepare was perfect. I would definately recommend this restaurant!
