2 and a half hours I waited for my food to be delivered, and unsurprisingly it was cold and stodgy when it finally arrived. No apology from the driver, but why bother with an apology, I paid over the phone so they already had my money. Shocking customer service.

Having been away from Sydney for 10 yrs my friend and I headed over to Surrey Hills to an old fave - Sagar- only to find it had closed. We tried Trip Advisor for Indian restaurants and it came up with Lal Qila. We decided to give it a go. Absolutely delicious food- incredible flavours, so very moreish! My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience there. Service was friendly and efficient too. Couldn't fault it!

On our last night in Australia we wanted to have a nice dinner. Since we love Indian food we looked for a good restaurant. The reviews were great wo we phoned for a table.
We were glad that we made reservations, because people had to wait for a table.
The space and the noise could have been better, but the the food was amazing. You can take a look in the kitchen and can see the preparation of the dishes. We ordered a cheese-naan (instead of the garlic naan we normally order) and it was so lovely!
Also the taste of the dishes was like you were in India. We ranked it our number 1 Indian restaurant of the Indian restaurants where we have been so far.
Our waiter was very friendly and service was great. It was too bad we only found this place on our last evening in Australia.

I liked the food but u won't say it's the best I have had!
For some reason the acoustics of this place were off the charts though! Some other guests were sooo loud to top it up that at some point I felt like getting up and asking them to shut up!
So be prepared for a loud dinner!

Easily best curry in town. Food is fresh and nice and spicy. Ask if you want it milder. Breads are great. No licence so bring your own booze. Well worth a trip to this place.
