You don't come to Prague for Indian food and Lal Qila pretty much supports that truth. First of all - the evening we were there the smell was weird. Definitely not herbs and spices. Second of all - kind of a dark dungeon feel. Interior design - not indian for sure. Staff - genuinely Indian and really nice. Food -... More

Positives Service, atmosphere, excellent plentiful authentic food, value, taste. £60 included many courses for 3 and plenty of the excellent Chilean house chardonnay. Negatives Can be hard to find, some may not like the celler feel, a little outside the main tourist drag for some

It was our first day at Prague, we had been to Lal Quila for Lunch, They have Buffet on Weekdays which is quite reasonably Priced at 120 KC. The food was tasty, we had also ordered Mango Lassi, which was quite refreshing.W Would very much recommend this Restaurant to India. Cuisine Lovers.

I only tried their cooking from a stall during an outside food festival. General problem with Indian restaurants in Europe is that they are scared to offer authentic hot food even if you ask for it. Not Lal Qila. The chicken vindaloo was great and spicy, the were able to provide plain rice instead of the standard pillau. And the... More

We were in Prague for our wedding anniversary. I made the reservation online and asked for some extra: some roses and a cake. I think I made the best choice with Lal Qila, we had such a wonderful experience: the meal, the flowers, the cake. The hostess is such a wonderful person.

This place was recommended highly by our Driver from Prague. He is Czech, so we were not sure about his taste of Indian food nevertheless we decided to try out this place on last day of our tour. This place is close to Opera, a short walk of around 15 to 20 mins. We were not at all disappointed by... More

Lal Qila, the people choice best rated Indian restaurant in Prague with the same old flavor of Indian food.

We are trying hard to give the best and wort of money to our guest's by our taste of food and with our services.

We named the restaurant on behalf of Red Fort located in Delhi which was built by the Emperor of India with a thought to safe the Indian culture in one roof, the same we are trying to do by giving best Indian food and taste with the blended flavor of spices from India.
