Always love the Rose of India. For me They always cook the best chicken by far- Always succulent and amazingly spiced. The menu is extensive the staff always attentive and tailor your needs to the dish. If you haven't been you simply missed out must have eaten there 50 times and it's always perfect.

This restaraunt has gone through various changes over the years but has got its mojo back and in my view is the best Indian in Chelmsford. Lovely spicey dishes, beautifully presented with care and attention by the waiting staff. Great selection of dishes . Don't bother searching elsewhere this is the rose amongst the thorns . Brilliant.

Even when named the 'Zeera', the Rose of India has been a family favourite. Food is always fresh and piping hot. Never had a bad experience and if I go out for an Indian, this is where I go!

Only here for a takeaway this time, but the Rose is has a consistently excellent product Always fresh, especially the bread and popadoms. These are the items it is easy to tell if they are old.

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.
