Came here because I heard they did good cocktails. When my friend asked for the cocktail menu the hi near lady gave us a look like 'I can't be bothered with that'. 20 mins for three cocktails to be made an in the process she forgot the first cocktail ordered for my other friend. When reminded about the first cocktail... More

We had a 3 course set meal for two and alI I can say is that I'm pretty certain it was frozen food, deep-fried and served up with luminous orange sauce. Everything tasted the same; chicken nuggets! Disappointing and bland

We are a party of 10 friends who had chosen to go to this restaurant on a Saturday Night out. I wish I had read the reviews before hand. Can you believe that 10 people had set menus A 2xB and C with 5 bottles of wine and the bill came to over £400. The food was below average, poor... More

Went here on Easter Sunday, there was only one other table of 4 while we were there so not much atmosphere, and a really quick meal. The food was OK but pricey and they charge £2.50 for prawn crackers which they put on the table without being asked if we wanted them or not. Our meal consisted of ribs, spring... More

A great place to get value for money, especially the lunch deals. I would definately come back here whether alone or with a group if friends.

Really disappointed with Kala Red. After looking at the menu online I thought the food all sounded really nice and slightly nicer than your bog-standard Chinese takeaway type food. However the food was really average and should have been cheaper for the quality. I visited on a weekday and the restaurant was empty. We were sat in the empty upstairs... More

I took my partner there as a pre-valentine treat and we really enjoyed it. We'd been twice before as part of large groups but this was the first time on our own. I booked on line which was brilliant as I immediately received a confirmation text and e mail. The door staff waved us straight upstairs. The waiting staff were... More

I have been to Kala Red a couple of times recently as part of a small group and both times have been excellent. We had a lovely round table which is perfect for a group as you can all chat easily. The food was plentiful and you get large portions of the rice! The drinks service was brilliant and we... More

We've been drinking in Kala Red for years - love the free prawn crackers! But have never eaten there. The place was deserted, only one other table ate while we were there, but the food was first class. Chinese is so often a greasy mess with dishes all tasting the same, but this was really good. Drinks were pricey, but... More
