Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Going on the other reviews, I must have caught them on a bad day. Or is their focus primarily on the take away aspect of she business? I would suggest so! The mixed grill looked amazing when it was brought to the table. Unfortunately, it...was dry and tasteless,More

Ordered takeaway for two, despatch time said 1 hour 5 minutes. Driver turned up an hour and 45 minutes after order. Despite only accepting cash the driver turned up without change so I ended up overpaying. Food was lukewarm and naan breads were missing. After...attempting to call both numbers a total of 192 times I gave up. Will not order again. Wouldn't recommend to anyone. They are the cheapest in town but you get what you pay for.More

Pre a booked table after my mum and dad used to come here a few years ago & had raved about it. It was shockingly awful, the worst service I’ve ever experienced in an Indian restaurant & the blandest curry I’ve ever tasted. They favour...delivery drivers and walk ins collecting over diners, we watched so many people being served for the above whilst we were totally ignored. An hour & 15 mins after arrival our food finally arrived, needless to say we won’t be returning. This has to be the blandest & watery curry I’ve ever tasted.More

I used to be a regular here but a few years ago moved out of the area, I recently found myself in Basingstoke again whilst visiting family and looking for a take away, returned to the red rose. When I walked in I was greeted...by name and was very happy to find that the service and food were as I remembered. Fantastic!More

Sadly the food was not as good as I'm the past - I had the Garlic Chicken that had fairly dry pieces of chicken - my friend had the mixed tandoori and again some of the neat were dry ... Also this restaurant now has...opted for a total 0% Alcohol throughout - I had the Cobra Beer and hated it - I dread to think what the wines taste like ! I was given the excuse if COVID pandemic for this 0% alcohol policy - however we have been free of COVID for almost 2 years ! So begs the question what is the real reason ? It saddens me because in my view this restaurant was one of the best in Basingstoke - it's no longer the case and I shall not return - It is good of restaurants and pubs to have 0% or low alcohol but this restaurant has adopted and dictates this policy and though improving the market for 0% alcohol has yet a long way to go ( my humble view)More

Had a night in on my own so decided to have a curry delivered. Curry is my favourite food and I’ve eaten in most places in Basingstoke, and have not eaten at the red rose for years. So decided as I did not want to...leave the house this evening that I will get a takeaway delivered. So I decided to give the red Rose another try. I ordered a mixed starter, it was a very small dish when it arrived and consisted of an onion bhaji and two small pieces of chicken. I would consider it a below-average starter and was slightly disappointed. My main course dish was a lamb madras with mushroom and Keema rice. It looks reasonable on first inspection, but it’s taste considerably let it down. It was very bland and I did not enjoy it at all so I only ate approximately half, then the other half ended up in the bin. I personally would not eat at the red Rose again or order another delivery. There are many other places in Basingstoke that could do better even on their worst day. I have heard many people say they enjoy the red Rose, but as a curry lover I would certainly not say the same myself. I however am pleased I did try the red Rose this evening, does it confirmed my long-standing opinion of the red rose to be an accurate one. In other words cheap and nasty.More
