We went to Lal Qila restaurant for a get-together with families on Thursday evening. The staff, food, environment, and seating arrangement were all fabulous. We thoroughly enjoyed the event. Traditional Punjabi food (Makai ki roti and Saag) remained my favourite item. Highly recommended for all Pakistani food lovers.

Lots of choices in their buffet and everything is really tasty. Their grilled items are great too. Also, their kulfi is loooove. The restaurant has a great location in the corniche and it's also near Marina Mall. The place gets fully booked so do call them in advance for a reservation.

I am reviewing the new and improved Lal Qila on the corniche next to Marina Mall. This is restaurant in a nice locality with great view of the ocean and Emirates Palace. It is situated in a 'Villa' like structure with ample parking. The restaurant itself is well decorated and exudes warmth. The restaurant primarily serves Pakistani Cuisine and is... More

Very good service. However the presentation of the food is not the best and the chefs were smoking at the kitchen while cooking.
