Location and contact

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

The food was very good, but pricey. The service was fine until we received the bill. The dreaded service charge of 12.5 percent was added. On checking the calculation this was actually > 20 percent. Apologetic, refund made but not acceptable.
