Nice find, good food.

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... read more

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

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!

My wife and I used to enjoy eating at the Red Rose, however on the occasion of our last visit, we were very disappointed with the quality and value. Some of the meat dishes were more liquid sauce than meat, and although the prices were APPARANTLY modest, for some of the dishes, the reality was that we got very little... More

Two of us, two courses, two rounds of drinks £56 - great value for money! Not only that, the food was wonderful. The starters were just right, nice amount of mixed salad, the onion baija crispy and tasty; the mixed kebab meaty and very well presented at the table on a sizzling iron plate with loads of onions. The main... More

The Red Rose is nice but I didn't find it special. When we arrived the table they had ready was too small so we had to be moved. Any Indian restaurants I've been too serve a huge portion of rice so for the first time ever my husband and I opted to share one. Big mistake as I could eaten... More

My partner and I visited the red rose 25th October 2014. As I live in Kettering and my partner has only just moved here and I have been to the Red Rose on a few occasions I suggested that we went there as never had any complaints in the past.
