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.

This is our favourite local Indian Restaurant - the food is great and the place is really clean and welcoming. My husband has been in the kitchen (as he was doing some work there) and he says the kitchen is immaculate. Good to know if you are eating there regularly. The lunchtime special menu is particularly good value.

Gave this place another go as I thought that I was being harsh with my first poor review. The food is bland and boring. We had four different meals and they all tasted the same. That's it for me I'm afraid. I've tasted better from a pataks jar

Been here lots of time ;) not that we are greedy much. Always great service, May be slow at busy times but well worth the wait. Food is really delicious.

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.
