Dreadful
Very poor. Every bottle of wine we asked from their wine list they didn't have. We ordered five times but they came back laughing saying their suppliers had let them down. Finally they told us that all they had was their 'Coteus de Rohne' (sic) or their 'Chianti'. Both were severely poor quality plonk at a £13-£16 price. In the meantime three different waiters tried to get us to order popadoms which turned out to be 70p each. We finally asked a waiter whether we could bring a bottle of wine from elsewhere to eat with our meal bearing in mind they had nothing that was palatable. Waiter said 'yes' but when he walked away we heard arguing. Owner came back and said No. At which point we said "If your wine list and your customer service is any reflection of your food then we would go." He said "OK sir" (still laughing) and we left. Rubbish.

Awesome Service & Quality Food
  10 / 10
I have been ordering take away from this establishment for the last year or so now and have always been thoroughly satisfied with the food and the guys in there are the most welcoming and friendly I have met.
Never have I experienced any unpleasantness and I would recommend it to anyone.

Disgusting food, appalling service, avoid at all costs
  1 / 10
We had the misfortune to eat at the Indian Cottage on the 6/2/2010. When entering the restaurant we noticed that there was no enticing spicy smell, although there was an odour of dampness. Things didnt get off to a good start when we were presented with 8 popadoms that we didnt order but would have been charged for had we eaten them. These were sent back as we wanted 1 plain and 1 spicy one.

Approximately 1 hour later, the 8 popadoms were served to the table next to us who sent them back as they were stale.
Our starters we cold and these were sent back and the replacements weren't hot enough either.

The main courses were insipid and one of the lamb dishes was so tough it was inedible and basically just chilli powder in a runny sauce.

Oh and a naan bread magically appeared on the table which we didnt order. I have no illusions that it was free again they were trying to add items to the menu. At this point we complained and the waiter tried to hush us up and reluctantly removed some items from the bill.

Sunday morning and all concerned have upset stomachs and are out of pocket by over £40.00. There are lots of great Indian restaurants in the area (Way to the Raj in Marks Tey, Riverside Spice in Earls Colne and Balti Nights in Braintree)but unfortunately the Indian Cottage rates as one of the worst meals I have ever eaten and I will not be returning and making sure that ALL my friends are aware of how bad it really is.

I eat at the Indian Cottage about twice a month "More when i have the time" there food is always cooked to perfection, pipping hot, great atmosphere inside, staff are very friendly & nothing is to much trouble.

I highly recommend the Indian Cottage Kelvedon.
