“Great food and ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013

Was good to see an authentic Pakistani restaurant in Sydney with rich menu options to choose from. We went twice for dinner during our 5-day stay and it was worth the extra tavel.

On both occassions, it was very crowded. We were lucky to find a table after a little wait. To be safe better to make a reservation.

“Great Food - Service a bit slow”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

If you like a curry, you have to go to this place while in Sydney. I called in without a reservation and had to be squeezed in. As I waited for my table to be laid, I noticed how many Indian and Pakistani families there were in the restaurant - often a recommendation in its own right.

The service was very friendly, but it took a while to get my order taken, and my drink wasn't served until my meal arrived, and when I asked for the bill, that also took a while.

However, the food overshadowed all that. A wonderfully tasty Maharajah lamb - lovely meat, and a tasty, spicy sauce, but not overly hot, accompanied with a wonderful buttery paratha.

So, in summary, definitely try Lal Qila, but go for the evening, not a quick meal.
