Ordered dumpukht briyani for delivery the other day and i was expecting it to be typical unauthentic london version of desi food. The briyani was absolutely delicious!!! I have had many versions of briyanis all around the world and this is one of the best ones i have ever had! It reminded me of home; thats how authentic it tasted.... More

Enjoyed both the food and the great atmosphere. Try the soft-shell craps. They are great. I can also recommend the large prawns for the main course

Ate here on a Friday night , the food was average with a poor service , coupled with expensive drinks even by London standards (£12 for a bottle of still water that was possibly from a tap ) in it self is outrageous !! We won't eat here again , we just feel ripped off

Thank markaoverton
Red F, Manager at The Red Fort, responded to this review

Dear Markaoverton, We are not sure if you posted your review for the right location. We serve a bottle of still water for £3 and don't have any clue how you can justify your claim of being charged with £12 a bottle. Please contact us with more details to prove the charge and we will refund your bill fully 100%.... More

Have been to the red fort on most of my London visits. Earliest was upon its initial opening in the 80's. I had another fine meal. Lamb roganjosh and some naan and raita and some rice. Almost too much food. I loved it.

Once again we opted Red Fort for a quick bite for our late night dinner after theatre in Soho. They serves a high quality meal with plenty of choices in starter and mains from a set menu, for £15 if you are looking for a real steal. A bottle of Malbec was perfectly matched and staff were very helpful to... More

We had a chance to dine here after a few years on a busy Saturday night. Very thankful and obliged that the staff very so accommodating to give us a table on a very short notice. We felt very welcome to see some familiar staff and food was as tasty and flavourful as we remembered on our last visit. Th... More

This was the worst restaurant experience I have had in London in 15 years. Having walked in without a reservation, we were arrogantly waved away by the receptionist despite the place being empty, only to book via OpenTable and return 5 minutes later and tables suddenly being available. The food is overpriced, the service appalling, and it is such a... More

Dear Ramecka, Thank you so much for your feedback. We are sorry that you didn't had a good experience with us. Friday, 25th Nov was a very busy evening, especially due to partial black out in West End and surrounding area. There were a lot of guests coming without reservation, it's a blessing. At the same time we were committed... More

Great curries, tandoori dished and best of all the briyani, cooked in the traditional way with well balanced spices.

We went for the pre-theatre menu which was great value and quality, reasonable selection to choose from, good service nice atmosphere, some fairly priced wines for the location. Well worth a visit.

The original modern Indian restaurant, Dean Street's The Red Fort, has been flying the flag for flock-free, uber-contemporary Asian restaurants since 1983. Having undergone a complete refurbishment in 2010, The Red Fort remains at the forefront of cutting edge restaurant design with its sleek lines and block colour, designer lighting and modern artworks. A sparkling atmosphere means that The Red Fort appeals to a sophisticated crowd far beyond your post-pub curry seekers, with romantic dinner a deuxs taking place alongside business meetings. Much like the design, The Red Fort's menu takes Indian dining to a higher, more refined level with excellent ingredients used in creating wonderfully decadent dishes, delicately spiced and carefully flavoured. ..

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
