Catered for 45 for a milestone birthday celebration
Mixed entree platter with chicken tikka, fish, pakoras and tandori cultlets. Very tasty and in abundance
Main course was a selections of 5 dishes and naan. Plentiful and tasty. Not too spicy.
We booked the restaurant via the Lal Qila website for lunch on a Friday afternoon for 1pm. We opened the door, walked in but no-one was around. So I made our arrival known and out pops a guy from the kitchen area who advises us...that the restaurant is closed. I had taken a screen print from their website showing our reservation but there was not much we could do. Luckily as we were in the Darling Harbour area there were a few other places to check out. That was January 18. Since then I have sent five separate emails to all three email addresses I have for the various Lal Qila's--there are two in Sydney but no one has bothered to even acknowledge the emails, let alone advise what had happened or offer an apology.
That's pretty bad as we had always wanted to check it out, but now -- forget it!
The rating I gave, well that's there based on their customer service. The food might be wonderful but we won't ever know.More
It was a funny experience... host was nice i can see the place is super busy and packed with large groups and family dinners.
There wasnt any QR code to scan at the door or at the table, neither did any wait staff ask us...to sign in in any format. But when we asked for tap water for the table, they told us "we dont offer tap water because of covid, but you can order bottled water or soft drinks? they cost quite similar anyways"...
We looked around - all big tables are very packed and the entire restaurant is full of people... though food was okay, nothing too special but the whole experience was LOL.More
I kept hearing about how I should try out this restaurant next time I'm in the CBD and I'm so glad I've taken my family along. As soon as we've walked in we were greeted by a friendly gentlemen who I can only assume must've...been the manager. The reason I mention this is because it was by far the best service we have received during any dine in experience. To top it off, the food itself was incredible - the type that reminds you of your mother's cooking. Will definitely be returning!More
This is an Indian/Pakistani restaurant offering Mughlai cuisine. The food is real tasty, service is good and the staff courteous. The place is lax on maintaining distancing between the diners in these times of the COVID-19. Almost all the tables were occupied when we visited...the place. It indeed is a busy place. They need to however improve their rest rooms.More
I ordered chicken handi which was worth 29$ and a roghni naan for 6$. I have never been that disappointed seeing the quantity of curry, the size of naan and the taste. This is my first time ever writing a bad review but they derserve...it. I have told my extended family and friends to not go there ever. It is not recommended at all.More
Hospitality is the key to success from them. I visited the place couple of times before making an effort to come to TripAdvisor and write this. There food is authentic and real. I love the BBQ offerings but the Malai Boti and Chicken Seekh Kebabs...definitely stand out. The Butter Nan bread and Roti ware also like how it is suppose to be back home!More
