Bargain meal on Thursday. Very nice too!

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 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

Must try the chefs garlic chicken, it's the best, it's not on the menu but it's worth the request. The chef keeps on producing amazing curries. Long live the lal qila and it's curries

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

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. The staff seem to know their regular customers and are very pleasant and efficient even though... More

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
