A return visit to the Rose and we can never fault the cuisine. However, this time, unlike our drinks, the food was rather slow to appear and only did so after a prompt.to a waiter. Perhaps we should drink less! Otherwise service was unobtrusive in a convivial environment. Will be back.

Having come from Balti central in the West Midlands we wanted to find a good quality restaurant to get together with family members. Rose of India lived up to our expectations in terms of service, quality of food and price.

We've visited here a couple of times recently and have been impressed with both the quality of the food and the huge portion size. There is a huge choice of dishes on the menu and the service was good. The only thing stopping this being a five star review is that the popodoms were stale.

I come here with a group of 14 on Saturday! The restaurant was rammed, but the service of the waiters was still spot on! Everything was timed perfectly and questions asked where always explained in depth! We received our food within 1hour! Which for us is very early as we were a large group and the restaurant was very busy!... More

Four of us visited The Rose on Saturday night. We arrived before 8.30pm and had our mains served at 9.45pm. Sadly, there was no apology and although the food was fine the wait spoilt the enjoyment. I appreciate the restaurant was busy but if there's going to be a wait then have the courtesy to say so. It would have... More

Eating on out on my own is not something I relish but I did really enjoy my meal here. At first I was surprised that the place was as quite as it was but then England were on tv and the road it is in is not exactly busy and not where all the chain pubs and restaurants are that... More

If you visit Chelmsford and you love curry and Asian food in general cone here. Excellent advice on your choices, great staff interaction and best of all great food. I'm not 25 anymore and know my way around an indian menu. One of the best in south of England.

Thank Mark H
