The best Indian Restaurant in Cramlington, always spotlessly clean & very friendly atmosphere. The food is tip top, been there several times & enjoyed all the meals I've had.

Dropped in to see if we could get a table, it was a busy Saturday night, pleasantly surprised that they could fit us in. We didn't have starters just went straight on to main courses. Chicken Tikka Pathia - good (spicy) hot Pathia, not too sweet (find a lot of Pathias very sweet these days) sauce was strong and thick... More

The Lal Qila is friendly and professional. The food is always of a high standard - in my opinion, one of the best Bangladeshi restaurants in the north east. They have special offer nights when you can eat for far less than usual (usually Thursdays) and you need to book ahead as these get busy. Red or white wine is... More

This was our first visit - having been recommended to us by friends. We weren't disappointed. Excellent choice of dishes, superb tasting food. Best Indian meal we've had. We will go back.

Got a takeaway from here tonight (I know I said I was on a diet.....so sue me!) . Not as good as I've had in the past from here to be honest, popadums were soft and the bhaji really wasn't much cop at all, in fact just about everything was below par. They were having a charity night s I'm... More

We had our take away at the weekend and it was absolutely delicious. The food was hot, well presented (even in the cartons) and very tasty. The lime pickle with the pops was lovely. The chicken tikka was not too dry and the chiken tikka masala was excellent as usual. We normally go into the restaurant but one of the... More

I visited lal quila with a few of my work mates and it had got to be the best indian in the area. I had chicken tikka pathia with mushroom pilau and a pashwari naan. Ate the lot (was stuffed as a pug) the pathia was not too hot but had a bit of heat just as a pathia should... More

This restaurant is in the centre of cramlington, close to the pubs and we often use it when I have a night out with my friends after a visit to the pubs. My favourite dish is chicken masala and it is always cooked to perfection. The staff are always very friendly and the service is quick but never rushed off... More
