Very nice ambience. Veery nice food. We had veg and non veg food items . Tandoori paneer, seekh kebabs, lamb biriyani, daal roti. Every item had unique taste. Balanced spices and totally fresh. Paneer was soft, daal had all the flavours. Treat was the desert. We ordered kulfi and falooda. The best ever desert we had after a very long... More

"Lal Qila"-Wonderful dining experience in Sydney. The food was marvelous and beautifully presented. Lamb boti and Goat Karahi can be explained in only one word-'AWESOME' ; BIRIYANI-----"UNFORGETTABLE" . Another most important thing is co-operative and friendly staff------Really Impressed.I recommend all my friends to have a visit in this place as soon as possible.

Was looking forward to a wonderful birthday dinner but wasn't impressed. Have been there in the past and could not stop boasting about how tasty and generous their food was. But I was very disappointed last night. What I thought was once the best biryani I'd had in Sydney hardly had any meat in it. Was also lacking flavour. Chicken... More

By far the best south east asian food we have ever tried in Sydney. The place is nice and clean! People are good! Above all their food test as good as they look! My personal favourite is clay pot items and the lamb chops. Mind you the menu, naming of those dishes are rather interesting! However, description underneath those names... More

Look! I'll be honest with you....Indian/Pakistani cuisine is all about the flavor and the richness of the ingredients. Tantalizing your taste buds and leaving you craving for more is what these cuisines do best....BUT Lal Qila well way short of the mark on all counts. It was by no means bad...but was very average...Ambiance was poor, which I can absolutely... More

Thought I was going to an indian / pakistani restaurant.... Goodness. I felt like Dracula ... Felt like I was inside a tomb.... Dark, dreary ... Absolutely no fresh air ... Very stuffy ...
