“Best Ruby in Amazingstoke!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Boys here never let me down. Admit that its usually a takeaway then a sit in meal but over and over again they always deliver when they say they will and the food is always tasty - thats what you want when ordering food surely?

If you do decide to eat then then recommend to book if on a Friday/Sat as its always packed full - a great sign considering this is not in the town centre. Recently done up to a fairly moden (in curry house standards) decor with staff who are friendly and attentive.

Best Ruby Murray in Basingstoke!

“Food still good, but service is slipping!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

This was the third time we ate here. This time the place was pretty full, and it certainly showed with the service. we were offered drinks and poppadoms fairly quickly, but had to wait rather too long for our orders to be taken. We had a bit of a wait for our starters, which were however very tasty. The wait however for our main courses was over forty-five minutes. We were not the only customers getting frustrated (and hungry!) that evening. There were quite a few tables within earshot getting annoyed. When the food did arrive it was excellent; well presented, hot, and very tasty. We can only conclude that the restaurant cannot cope when busy. A shame, as the food is well up to the mark.

“Good Food and Service at a good price...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

We tried this place on a very busy Saturday night - the place was full when we arrived, however they were very efficient and had us seated in under 10 minutes.

The Red Rose is clearly a popular local choice. We ordered what I would consider standard Indian fare and sat back to wait and see how long the food would take considering the amount of people in the restaurant. The staff were swift and efficient (they use Ipads to take the order - get that!!) and impressively the food was out to us within about 20 mins (drinks and Papadoms came within 5 mins).

The food itself was tasty and looking at the menu was very reasonably priced. We never felt rushed, however its clear the staff have been well trained and are efficient - its a very slick operation.

This place is definitely one to recommend in South Basingstoke - the other option is the Spice Restaurant, which is further down Pack Lane. We've only tried this one on a take away, but the restaurant itself doesn't have the classier feel of the Red Rose.

“Average curry house”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

This was the choice of venue for a get together with friends. It was our first visit. It was very busy but the waiters were on the ball with taking our order and serving us our drinks. Unfortunately after the poppadoms and pickles it took over an hour before we actually got out main meal. It was warm when it arrived and it was ok but to be honest we have had better. Would maybe go there again on a night that isn't so busy. If you do go here make sure you ask for a table away from the front door as every time the door is opened you feel the cold.

“Takeaway Poor”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Takeaway took an age to arrive and as a result was cold and the naan bread mushy. A shame as it was recommended to me.
