This restaurant is famous for it's taste and quality of traditional cuisines especially BBQ ones. Their buffet dinner is famous among locals and it offers a wide variety of dishes ranging from traditional tastes to BBQ and what not. The internal decor is also good and the service remains excellent as always.

This is a typical all you can eat type joint and is quite popular since it is considered to be good value for money. Never enjoyed the food. Very average. Don't recommend it

We were invited for dinner at Lal Qila on a weekend. The place was full and there were many children as well. It's a buffet with a large variety of Pakistani cuisine from BBQ to haleem, nihari , sea food and Chinese food. The food was average but I enjoyed the variety of deserts .
