“Wouldn't rush back”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

My husband and I ate at this restaurant this evening after a theatre trip to Birmingham. The Popadoms and Chutneys were very nice. We then shared a Tandoori Mixed Kebab to start which was nice but served on a cold plate - this would be better served on a sizzling skillet. We then both chose the Romna Special Mixed Masala which was a mixture of meat in a Masala sauce. We were disappointed to find that the chicken was on the bone rather than boneless but most disappointingly the sauce was very salty indeed. Whist sat there for an hour or more, we noted that the carpet is absolutely minging - it seriously needs replacing urgently. To summarise, it was average at best and we wouldn't rush back

“We might have found our new local....”
Reviewed 30 March 2013

Recently moved to Rugby, so finding a new curry house was clearly on our priority list.

We had walked past a few curry houses on Albert Street and Railway Terrace on the basis that we would eat somewhere closer to the centre of town and only stopped at the Romna because we were tired of walking!

It was pleasantly busy even though it was early evening. However it is quite small so it fills up quite quickly.

Food was class, particularly the kids chicken biriani. They certainly didn't scrimp on small portions or trying to bulk out the dish with veg. It was bursting with chicken.

We took a punt and had a couple of the chefs specials. Never seen these previously at other restaurants (and can't remember what we had!) but we were both happy and there were no complaints.

Prices are very reasonable compared to our previous 'local'.

I agree on the grubby carpets which does bring the place down. Only other gripe was our table was by the front door, and whenever the door opened we got a waft of freezing March night air, but now that we know that we will sit elsewhere in the future.

Overall no complaints and very happy....We will obviously have to explore other curry houses (surely you have to play the field a little bit before settling down), but the Romna has set the bar very high.

“Excellent Traditional Indian Restaurant”
Reviewed 26 March 2013 via mobile

Visited the place with my family and have to say the service, value and amazing quality of food didn't disappoint me. Tried some items and everything was cooked to perfection. Staff are wonderful and polite, will defiantly make it a regular with the family.
