First visit to this place, it's part bar and part restaurant, they do takeaways and do eat ins. Food is quite authentic, well prepared, well presented and delicious. One of my pet hates is ordering a chicken curry £7.00, then having to order the rice/noodle to accompany the curry, that can cost from £3 to £6 extra, depending how fancy... More

Visited this restaurant already 3 times and definitely will come again. Food is always freshly cooked and taste amazing, portions are big, service always excellent. Went there for birthday evening meal and was presented with complimentary ice cream and a bottle of champagne.

I've been here a few times over the last few years and the food quality is always very good. You have to walk through Kala Red's bar and up the stairs to reach the restaurant, the decor has quite a cool modern feel. The food choices on the menu are all pretty standard but more important they serve very tasty... More

Arranged a works night out to have dinner here for 20 people. Everything was great, everyone loved the food as they could have as much as they wanted and there was still loads of food left over because there was loads of it. The beef in black bean sauce, the ribs and the spring rolls were all really really nice,... More

They have a lunch menu where you can pick a starter, then for the main you pick a sauce/flavour, a meat or vegetables and then rice, noodles or bean sprouts. The food was was... More

A great night out for a friend's 30th. Drinks were a great price and there was a great DJ set, whereby the DJ was open to requests. Lots of space to dance but toilets weren't as clean as they could be and could possibly do with some refurbishing. That said, Kala Red provides a great atmosphere for a night out... More
