The food was tasty, quite expensive and portions small. Nothing bad, nothing remarkable. There was No one there at lunchtime so very atmosphere-free.

It was back in 2013 when I first visited this restaurant, and it was the same time when I first tried lamb ever. Since then every time I will come and dine it was "lamb biryani" that I will have as my main it is a great dish, it's like a pot of special rice lamb with all the goodness... More

As the year end I would like to treat myself at one of the most delicious Indian restaurant at Soho. Until now there services are very good. They make sure that customer are well attended and feel comfortable. Great place and still the food is lovely! Especially their lamb biryani and mango ice cream!

Went as a group of 10. Were initially told the wait would be 45 minutes. Made a reservation through open table for 15 minutes. Strange, but were seated quickly. Service was good and the food was good. Price was above average.

I went there for Christmas lunch with my family. The service, aka the bald arrogant man, was atrocious. He was as rude as could be and actually ruined our meal. The food was mediocre and was clearly destroyed by the overtly nasty and inappropriate comments by the man who was not the owner, but could have been the manager. I... More

After a cocktail in the bar down stairs (good choice and service) we had dinner. Food definitely above average, but so is the price. Nonetheless, probably the best Indian meal I've had anywhere. Good atmosphere. Service could have been a bit more attentive. Overall would recommend.

So , I have been to the red fort before, loved the food but always found the staff a little aloof. I thought I would give it another go as the food really is delicious. We got there around 7 and was pointed to our table. Coats were reluctantly taken and we were given menus by a particularly grumpy chap.... More

In London for long weekend from Chicago. This was our third visit to the Red Fort over 6 years. We had 'Bengali king prawns in a spicy mint, green chilli, lime leaf & spinach sauce' and 'Scottish lamb chops with ginger, garlic, mustard oil & royal cumin from tandoor' and both were excellent. The service was superb with pleasant ambiance,... More

Menu is fancy but really is not at all inspiring. I ordered the lamb Biryani which cost over £20. Not worth it. Boring and basic. The menu dresses up the dishes. I will not return.

Description
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
Soho
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.
