“Average curry house”
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”
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.

“Worse food I have tasted in 12 years never going again!!”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

We live very close to Red Rose Tandoori, and as such have visited quite a few times. The food has always been average Indian restaurant food, nothing special. It is rather overpriced, especially for prawn dishes, the most expensive of which only contains three prawns (of a large size, admittedly).

However, due to it's convenience we still used to go from time to time and the young waiters were quite pleasant, although the older ones' customer service skills left a lot to be desired.
Unfortunately last time we went the younger guys had all gone and we were served entirely by grumpy old men. Two of them were extremely rude and were unwilling or unable to meet even basic customer service levels.

We have not been back since and won't again and I would advise people to go elsewhere. There are far better places to eat in the area, without the snide comments, with better food for less money.

Reviewed January 2, 2013

The food is always nice, value for money. sometimes they concentrate on takeaways more than customers in the restaurant, but they are always very busy!
