I visited The Red Fort for lunch with a friend and it was one of the best lunches I have had in a long time. What sets The Red Fort apart from the chains and other similar eateries is that the staff showed a genuine interest in us. They were extremely accommodating to our needs, filling our water and checking... More

Great tasting food, great service and great atmosphere. The bar downstairs is lovely too! I really enjoyed the butter chicken and the biriyani, great variety of food including fish dishes and vegetarian dishes.

I've visited this restaurant regularly with a friend over the past 3 years while I've been in London and have never felt compelled to write a review for anywhere I've been until now. I didn't even know I could do this! I could have written a review every time I've visited. I don't have many regulars- but this one strikes... More

I visited the red fort on a Thursday night with friends, the restaurant had a lovely atmosphere and we were seated immediately. The waiter could not do enough for us and was extremely attentive over the course of the evening. We ordered a variety of dishes, with poppadoms to start, and the dahl, chicken, and potato dishes for the mains.... More

Decided to try this place as there was a 25% off the a la carte menu offer on Open Table. The food and service were ok but not what I had expected for the prices. Its was fairly quiet when we visited although it was 6.30pm ad still quite early. I doubt I'd visit again as the portions were small... More

Definitely overpriced, no drinks menu, not authentic in any sense. Service was swift, but prickly. Food was fine, but didn't have nuanced flavours. More American diner style than independent family establishment. You won't go hungry, but you won't enjoy an experience to wish to repeat any time soon. Atmosphere 1 Food 6 Service 5

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.

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.
