Very good food & service

Been here a few times to dine in (rather than takeaway) & it never disappoints. Service is friendly & courteous. Side dishes are also of a very good quality. Good to find an Indian restaurant that is consistently good.

We were here to celebrate a double birthday and we had a superb night. Food and service was excellent and our party of 14 had a great night. The only negative was a rude couple sat a few tables away who felt the need to stare at us and were clearly offended that we were enjoying ourselves. Her sour face... More

Food was fine we were seated next to a very obnoxious family which made it their mission to be heard through the whole restaurant. They seemed to know the owners so when we asked to change our order to take away nothing was said. Couldn't hear my partner speaking and he was sitting right next to me. We still had... More

We visited the Lal Qila on Sunday 7 June to celebrate our daughter's birthday. The service was excellent, the food was excellent and the drinks were good. We had a great evening. The Lal Qilla has never let us down. Prices very reasonable too; 4 starters, 4 main courses plus 2 rounds of drinks all for under £85. What a... More

Lal Qila is a very good Indian Restaurant which always serves very high quality Indian food in their restaurant and Take-Away facility. They have won a number of local awards. We regularly use them for both Take-Away and in house restaurant and would highly recommend them to anyone. I suggest you should consider booking as they are very popular.

We were staying just outside Newcastle and had this restaurant recommended to us. The food was perfect we couldn't fault it, but a couple.of the staff were a little stand offish we asked one man which rice was which and he just laughed and walked off, not sure he heard or understood what we meant! Otherwise really can't fault it.

Just next to the main shopping centre, this is a very nice, well established restaurant with an extensive menu. Friendly staff, good service, generally busy which is always a good sign.

We arrived on time for our reservation at Lal Qila and were impressed by the appearance of the restaurant. We were not greeted on arrival but a man who was on the telephone signaled for us to take a seat in the waiting and takeaway collection area. We were asked for our drinks ordered but we asked instead to be... More
