“Best curry house in the area!”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

We do use la quilla quite often and as always we get fantastic tasting food with lots of different flavours.
The staff are very friendly and helpful, if your stuck on what to choose from the menu they will do there best to help and give advice.
They also take time to talk with you and make your visit an enjoyable experience.
This is a very clean restaurant with lovely decor.
I would like to take the opportunity to say thank you to all the la quilla staff for all the hard work and lovely food that is served.

“average food - slow service”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

Ordered food prior to going as on lunch break and not much time to spare. The restaurant was quiet, only 3 other tables eating at same time, but waited 30 mins for our mains to come out and that was only after we complained. Food was ok but nothing to rave about. Don't like the fact that they automatically add the service charge on the bill. We were only a table of 4 so wouldn't expect this. I like to tip what I feel the meal and service is worth not what they say I should.

Lalquilla, Manager at Lal Quilla Indian Restaurant, responded to this review, 21 August 2014
On the 15th of August 2014, we have had a tripadvisor review saying that our food was average and slow service. Basically, he or she who commented on the tripadvisor that they have visited to our restaurant one lunch time and waited half an hour before they received their food, I would please like to know the date they visited to our restaurant, the way we will be able to find out.

In addition, I would like to say that they have made a wrong comment by saying that there were service charge added on the bill. On the bill, it clearly states that service charge is not included and we never have charged service to anyone wrongly. Can you please sort this comment out for us. The whole comment looks like to me very sceptical.

Therefore, I would really appreciate if you kindly sort this out for us. I look forward to hearing from you.

“Alert all fish-eaters, exceptionally good sea bass!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Lal Quilla is a stereotypical Indian restaurant - although having said that, the meat-eaters in our party thoroughly enjoyed their lamb dishes. However, what we found exceptional was the sea bass. No fiddling around with fillets here, we got the whole fish from head to tail. And well cooked too. The sea bass was meant to go with green beans, but I wanted spinach, No problem, we got the spinach. I had almost given up hoping to find an Indian restaurant that serves good fish, so keep the sea bass coming Lal Quilla!
