Great food and good ambiance.

This is a very pleasant restaurant situated up a steep flight of stairs in Stranmillis village. The room was warm, attractively lit and set out. Good cloakrooms are provided on the restaurant level. We booked with a Groupon Voucher and on arrival were shown to a table. The restaurant was not... read more

Had been to the restaurant a few years ago so decided to try the take away service. Ordered chicken madras, chicken tikka masala, pilau rice, naan and x2 portions of popadoms. We were extremely disappointed with the portion size across the board; containers with only a few pieces of chicken (95% sauce), naan 1/4 of what we would be used... More

Visited last night with my boyfriend and we both argeed the food was excellent. Indian dishes are commonly made with little meat and lots of veg and we thought the potions where very generous, we had starters as well which were amazing. 10/10 experience!

visited recently for a meal with friends before going on to cinema. Pleasant staff, very attentive. Was asked if we were on group on deal- which we weren't and we wondered if we were missing out on something? All had main course dishes which we felt were disappointing in that the portions were small. We were all female - but... More

What a great surprise! We were here (as many seem to be) with a groupon deal, and so didn't know what to expect at all. The food tasted amazing and the menu was interesting and easy to understand. The restaurant is a pleasant space to be in, but it was a bit quiet for a great atmosphere. Service was polite,... More

Been here a few times and food is good just not as good as some of the other Indian restaurants around Belfast, service lacks that friendly touch, staff just serve the food and theres no chat etc. Still if you are in the area it is worth a visit.

Another visit to Lolita did not disappoint. Lamb kebab and chicken starters were served with excellent presentation, care had obviously been taken to arrange the food on the plates. Being a lamb fan I had lamb shank and my wife chicken bhuna, both with mushroom rice and a keema nan. The rice was plentiful and the food delicious, washed down... More

We visited for lunch with a Groupon voucher for 2 starters and 2 main courses with rice. It was our first visit and we found the staff pleasant and efficient. As it was a Tuesday there were no other customers, so we were served promptly. We had a mixed platter of starters which were very flavoursome. I had Chicken Tikka... More
