I really rate this restaurant. The food is simply excellent and well presented. Certainly not the cheapest but it's worth it.

I've been here many times over the last couple of years both as a couples social meal venue & the traditional curry after a few (for few read too many!) beers with the lads. The welcome and service is always friendly and food tasty. One of my friends has a dish that's not on the menu but they always happily... More

A really enjoyable experience, the service was outstanding as was the quality of the curries. No wonder the restaurant is often full. We will return.

First visit here, popped in for a mid week curry and was very satisfied. All the food was very good and the staff were great. Large portions and very reasonably priced. Will definitely be returning.

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!
