This place never ceases to amaze me. The Lal Qila is located on main Shahrah-e-Faisal is the place for foodies. I have been to Lal Qila and each time I come happy with a belly full of food. To begin with there's Brunch and dinner. Be sure to check the timings form them. You get Valet assisted parking. On any... More

We took our Canadian guests for dinner to Lal Qilla. They were bowled over by the awesome ambiance and the wide variety of dishes - Pakistani, Western and Chinese. Although the buffet spread was not as ambitious as Lal Qilla's "rural" competitors, it was impressive nevertheless. In between trips to the buffet counters, our table was constantly plied with hot...

Okay so I would expect a restaurant which is charging Rs 1200 per head, to serve good quality food but I was extremely disappointed to see that the quality of food has deteriorated since the last time I visited Lal Qilla a long time ago. The quality and quantity both were disappointing. Even though it was a buffet, the quantity... More

A group of us went here for dinner on the recommendation of our hotel. The concept (replica of Red Fort) is kind of fun, and the service is good. The good points end there. The grilled meat (BBQ) was tasteless and cold -- despite being taken off skewers in front of us! Some of the other dishes on the extensive... More
