I have been eating Indian food for 30 years. Without doubt it is is one of my favourite cuisines, although I generally prefer old school "British" Indian food, rather than fusion or any of the more modern twists. If those are your tastes too then the Asian Rose certainly delivers.

I honed my palate for spice in Scotland and the midlands, and rarely have I found food elsewhere across the country that truly compares. Many dishes served in restaurants in the south east seem pre-prepared and bland. But this is not the case in the Asian Rose.

Whether its a Tikka Masala, Bhuna, Jafrezzi, Madras, Vinadaloo, Biryani, or Dhansak. Whether you prefer it extra hot, or a touch milder, the chef here will serve you perfectly balanced and spiced dishes to suit any tastes. And of course your meal will be accompanied by perfect Tandoor fresh Naan, your chosen rice and any of the favourite sides you could wish for.

However, it's not the food, but the service at the Asian Rose that is truly stand out. A warm welcome awaits you from Alum the proprietor and Mo, his younger side kick, who are exceptionally dedicated hosts as well as hard working waiters. The Asian Rose is a five star eatery at two star prices, so if you are looking to eat out in Burgess Hill, and you like good simple old fashioned Indian food, don't miss out.

I have lived in the area for a number of years and always enjoy the food and the sevice in the Asian Rose. To be honest did not ever think about writing a review as usually concentrate on places I go on holiday or for work, but then realised I need to let others know how good this place is. Over the years have been to all other Indians in the town. Some are better than others but always enjoy the meal and service here the best. So don't bother trying any others in the area . Don't like too hot, and if you don't either choose the Bhuna Chicken. Always just about right and tasty tender chicken. Have eaten many other dishes and Alum & his team will always help with your order, and will cook it how you like it best. Enjoy

I wrote a review back in August and can't believe only three people have reviewed since.
I think this is because the Asian Rose is the best curry house in Burgess Hill and it is full of regulars who revisit every week and don't think to do a review.
I can assure you if you visit you will not be disappointed
Please give it a try if in town

Had a great meal for 4 last night including 2 lamb Shanks from the Christmas Menu. The shanks were very tender and the meat fell off the bone.

Also recommend the Tandoori Prawns as a starter. Large prawns and great flavour.

Drinks well priced.
