Delicious food and great service

My partner and I have eaten here twice now and both times have been fantastic. There is a great variety in the menu, the food itself is fresh and tasty and the service is great (even when the restaurant is at capacity).

The atmosphere was of an authentic cosy family-run restaurant, with deep maroon decorations and tight sitting arrangements. But ambience aside, the food served here is impeccable! And the fact that many Indian families were dining there is a good proof of their authenticity when it comes to serving up some mean Pakistani and Indian food. I'd highly recommend their cheese...

Lal Qila easily has to be the best Pakistani food I have ever had outside of Pakistan and my mothers home cooking. Ask for the specials which are not on the menu. My personal favourite is the goat curry.

The food was worthwhile traveling for. We liked the new dishes which they had compared to the other indian restaurants like veg seekh kebab and kaju kebabs. Quantity and quality were really good.

I took my husband here for his birthday and I have no regrets. Lal Qila exceeded my expectations. The food was amazing, service was beyond my expectations and the atmosphere was superb.

This great place is close enough to the city to be accessible but far away enough that it isnt ridiculously busy. Great and authentic food. Great quantities and very well priced. BYO.
