Buffet night is billiant. You can try different sorts of curries and starters, eat as much as you like. The owner and staff are great and remember you from former visits. A great night out.

Restaurant here has been dishing great food for many years. Slick and friendly Indian service; vast menu with many options and great quality at reasonable prices. Happy buzz. Recommended.

I'll start by saying this review isn't based on a one off experience. My parents have lived in Lymington for about 20 years and I must have eaten at Lal Quilla about 10 - 15 times. It actually used to be a pretty good Indian restaurant, however it's deteriorated badly over time getting worse and worse each time I went, and the last experience there was so bad it will definitely be the last.

Based on the most recent 2 or 3 times I went, the food is at very best an average/below par equivalent of a cheap Indian takeaway. No real flavour or spices used, just chilli powder for heat and greasy sauces. The atmosphere is increasingly one that makes it feel like a production line - get you in and out as quickly as possible whilst aggressively trying to sell you over-priced drinks the whole time.

However by far the worst thing about it is the service - aggressive and rude is an accurate description. From waiters with full blown colds wiping their nose on their sleeve whilst serving food to an unbelievably rude manager that gives your table booking away to the first customers who arrive before you, it's pretty dismal. Again, this didn't used to be the case and I don't know what's happened to bring about the change, but certainly it's gone from good to bad to terrible over the past 10 years or so and I won't be going back again.

There's a much better Indian takeaway (not sure if you can eat in?) called Forest Tandoori at Fox pond that I use now.

The food was lovely and there was a very good choice of dishes. However the service let it down, our waiters were totally indifferent.

Went on buffet night. Food is ok. Perhaps slightly above average. Staff don't appear particularly interested. However price of drinks added substantially to costs.14 pounds for 3 cokes and a white wine spritzer.
