Excellent value Thursday menu but best to book

My wife and I have been eating at Lal Qila for years and the food and service is always spot on. We tend to go on a Thursday night for the special menu and I would always recommend booking as it gets very busy, but the manager and staff cope admirably

Poppadoms, starter, main course with rice, ice-cream and a glass of wine for £12. Wow! Lovely food too. No problem with service for us. Had better but also had worse. Be warned though- the drinks are expensive.

we have been here many times over the last 20 years and never ever ever ever ever had a bad meal. The food is great and the Thursday specials are great value for what you get (5 courses for £12)

The food is nice. Not as good as Moti Jheel in high pit around the corner. The food is good value on a Thursday as its a 3 course meal. However the staff are miserable 9 times out of ten. The cokes are out of a bottle and are flat! Only for for a take away or on a Thursday!

I have had many meals here over the last few years and have always had lovely food and good service . When we first started going it was quite quiet at times but we had a meal last night and it was really busy.

This was recommended by a family member and organised to go on a Thursday night for the special. We booked a table for 8pm and when we arrived, on time, we were asked to sit and wait, along with a crowded entrance/ bar area. After 10 minutes the man came to take our drink order and shortly after, brought our... More
