A good choice

Multiple balti options, tasty curries and Indian breads as well as good service and ambience. The prices are a bit higher though.

Saturday night: 7pm, really quite busy - which is great to see. However after waiting for nearly 1 1/2 hours we gave up. The final straw was when the couple next to us (who came in after us) finished their starter and main - paid and left. Didn't get to taste more than a poppadom. Really pleasant ambience, shame I...

Having been several times to the red rose I feel it is time to say how pleased I am after every meal. Last night was a meal for two and it didn't disappoint. Reasonably priced and a tasty curry and side dishes. What more can you ask for.

Was probably the first customers of the evening so im guessing we definitely had the day befores left overs which turned up very quick and borderline hot but more warm than hot. A shame because before this I would have rated the place

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

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 in recent months.... More
