This is a great place if you like Indian food. Its a BYO, so don't forget to take your beer/wine with you, but you can buy soft drinks. They keep them chilled and bring them to the table very promptly when requested. The food is more expensive than other local Indian restaurants, but the taste is great and as you... More

Passing through Oakham, we were directed by a local to the Red India. Easy to park near the level crossing, warm welcome and really flavoursome food, with good portions. Would definitely go again if in the area.

Excellent and authentic Indian food. We had a biryani, lamb curry, saag chicken. Takha Dahl and a number of side dishes. The food was fresh and spicy. One of the best Indian restaurants in UK let alone Rutland! And BYO, Aussie style a bonus.

Very enjoyable curry. Service very good, good sized portions and you can bring your own beer! Enjoyed the 7 chilli dish! I'm not from Oakham, but if here again I would return

This small , sophisticated , charming Indian restaurant never fails to provide us with delicious authentic and freshly cooked Indian cuisine . The staff shake your hand on arrival and treat you like a family member . It has no license so an added bonus you take your own alcoholic drinks which the waiters keep cold and serve when they...

We arrived without a booking on a bank holiday weekend, but they managed to get us seated after a while, which gave us enough time to pop to the office licence to get some beers as they do not sell alcohol, the food was great with a varied menu a lot of which seems to be named after people! Although... More

As in the title. Basic India, the food is OK, the price is OK. The service is very good. They don't sell alcohol but there is an off-licence 3 doors down and the staff will serve you your own booze - take a nice bottle of bubbly in and they will do you an ice bucket, take some cans of... More
