Stumbled in after a busy day..... The policy here is BYOB which is great. The amount of food provided is immense and the quality of food is beautiful. Just when I felt happily satisfied and full I spotted a mouse running across the restaurant..... It entertained me for a short while before it ran in to the back room. Lovely... More

Red fort was a favourite of mine in university and I have revisited recently. This place is a friendly and great Indian restaurant. The staff are great and often provide discounts to regulars. I would definitely recommend both the buffet, which had good choice and excellent value for money, and a la carte. The chaats are good to start and... More

This is a BYOB restaurant. Quite small and the buffet lunch is good and fresh. Not a huge choice but caters for everyone. The chicken chat is amazing and the food is topped up so nobody goes without. Would recommend a visit.

This is in the heart of the student area hence the decent prices. We have been here about three times & the food is always good. There is a buffet on the go or you can order from the menu. The décor is not the most appealing but it does the main job that is to serve good food &... More

We visited the red fort on a Monday night. The food was excellent, my partner is still raving about the meal she had, my meal was also excellent. Next time I'm in Edinburgh, this is definitely the restaurant that I will be visiting. Highly recommended.

We found the Red Fort by accident whilst wandering round looking for somewhere to eat. It was quite late and we ended going in because we were very hungry and it was there. However, this was the a huge stroke of luck as without a doubt this is the best Indian food I've ever eaten. There's not a single thing... More

Four of us booked and ate here last weekend. We had poppadoms, veg pakora to share and a variety of four mains with rice, naan and paritha. The service was exceptional and the quality of the food was delicious. Unlike some other Indian restaurants each main looked and tasted unique. The Jalfrezie could have been slightly spicier for my taste... More

Was looking for somewhere for lunch and decided to try here. Been eating curries for many years up to Michelin star and this was one of the best. I'll be back
