Disgusting! Been using this restaurant for years now and always been nice! However the last few times we’ve had to wait 2 hours for a delivery. Same again tonight and we’ve got a cold curry and rice! (Unsafe due to the rice being cold!) and...the poppadoms had bloody holes in them and looked inedible! Never again! Starving so going to the shalimar instead! The attitude of the manager on the phone was also disappointing as he’s normally very friendly and even recognised us over the phone due to being regular customers! Hoping we get a refund ASAP! But apparently they aren’t open until Monday!More

Dear Madam, thank your review, however we would like to be clear that you were incredibly rude and incredibly abusive to our manager and threatened to write reviews all over social media before we could respond. We did refund your money on the day and...More

We had a superb evening last night. Food was lovely as always, staff friendly, efficient and chatty. They had run out of the drink we wanted as the delivery hadn't come that day but they went out specially to get some for us while we...ate our meal....really good over and above service! Thank-you for a great evening!More

What a lovely place. The decor is great, staff are hugely friendly, and the food is delightful. My Wife and I had a meal on Fri 7 Jan, and despite it being the month of health-kicks the place was pretty busy which is a great...sign. We shared a mixed kebab starter and then had Chicken Lajawab, Biran Gosht, mixed fried rice, and chapatis. It was all delicious and even a 10% discount.More

Visiting Portsmouth, looking for a good curry takeaway, went by the good reviews on trip advisor, very misleading. Food was like purified baby food, no spice, very disappointing.More

Thank you for your review. However we dispute this review because we don't any record of you ordering or visiting our restaurant. I've checked on our platforms and with our delivery partners to find when you ordered. We have no details of this. Your wife...More

Thank you Tony and Team. Throughout these difficult times you have maintained the excellence and standard of your cooking. Fabulous. We haven't ever experienced any problems with delivery times, obviously it's best to order online earlier in the day. Long may you continue.

Ordered at 6.40 and dinner arrived after 8pm, stone cold and missing items. Phoned to speak with a manager - he out. Delivering our extremely late meal! Was promised a call back and heard nothing. Also did not respond to the email I had sent...requesting a refund. Will not be returning or recommending to anyone. Poor service.More

We have had an excellent meal from Tony and his team. The delivery did not take long and the flavours excellent. I can recommend the Chicken Jhal Merchi. The delivery person was very friendly but above else the food is excellent and well presented. I...thoroughly recommend Red Rose Lounge.More

Ordering online is so quick and easy, with a really comprehensive and helpful menu layout. For the first time in years I had a biryani last night, the Red Rose Special......it was exceptionally good. It was good to see you about again Tony. Keep delivering!

Had a delicious dinner last nite from red rose lounge. They delivered within the hour and as always we enjoyed a really tasty curry with moist chicken and so flavoursome.

Have used the Red Rose takeaway/delivery service several times during lockdown and they have been excellent. Lovely food and sensible prices. Whats more it is great for someone like myself who only wants one meal as the minimum spend is only £12. A lot of...similar takeaways locally price themselves out of the running by insisting on too high a minimum spend. They need to learn from the Red Roses example. Well done Red Rose, you will have my custom for a long time yetMore

Hi Alison, We are not planning to be open on Christmas Day. HOWEVER this could change if we have enough of a demand for it to be opened. Were you planning on booking a table? Kind Regards, Red Rose Lounge Management
