Been going here for over ten years and the curry is always fantastic. The staff are great and always make the effort to talk to you aswell as offering very good service. Very warm and friendly restaurant with fantastic food!

My family and I attended Lal Qila in June 2016. The staff were friendly and food excellent and reasonably priced. The menu contains a number of Special Indian dishes as well as all the favourites.

Since moving to the area we stumbled across the restaurant and thought we'd give it a try. There is car parking outside the restaurant but this quickly fills up. However there is further parking across the main road within just a short walk. I'm happy to say we are now regular customers; the staff have got to Know us. There... More

I have visited many times both sitting in and taking out. It is always good quality good and the service is good. Although it is sometimes a bit slow but that is due to it being peek time. The take away food is as good as sitting down and having a meal. I always find the staff friendly.

Really lovely food, can't fault it at all. We usually get starters and then chicken tikka massala, keema naan, chips, mushroom pilau and it's spot on. Staff need to cheer up, they really don't look as if they want to be there and I always feel as though they are waiting for the moment you put the cutlery down to... More

We visited recently for a special occasion and ended up with a very disappointing experience. there were 6 of us cramped on to a table that could fit 4 people maximum, which ultimately ended up in us being told to put our drinks on the floor and having to empty side dishes on to our plates immediately. despite the restaurant...
