The Red Fort 1

Squaremeal Review of The Red Fort ?

For over three decades, the redoubtable Red Fort has been taking inspiration from India's Mughal Court traditions, combining ancient recipes with a sleek, refined ambience. The interior has seen lots of changes over the years, but its current blend of traditional arch motifs with brown silk walls, soft colours and equally soft lights is most satisfying. Long-serving chef Azadur Rahman sends out "beautifully presented" dishes ranging from starters of charcoal-roasted fig- and cashew-stuffed potatoes or delicately spiced monkfish with ginger to lamb biryani steamed in a sealed pot or stone bass in a sharp mustard and coconut sauce. However, Red Fort is really about charcoal-grilled meats and seafood, from tandoori chicken breast marinated in cardamom to luxurious Scottish lobster dressed with saffron, garlic and cheese. With its hefty international wine list, professional service and years of experience, this is a real Soho classic.

- The food was as good as I could have hoped for. Very tasty, beautifully presented, fresh, quality ingredients. - Broad selection of wines, and knowledgeable staff. - Good value for money considering the location. - Atmosphere was lacking, but maybe because it was a Monday night. - Will definitely return.

Unlike many other Indian restaurant on almost all major streets in London, I was highly recommended this place by my friends. We had been there on a busy Friday evening and was quiet happy to get reservation at peak hours. Being Indian, I always had been fussy about quality of Indian food being served in eateries, but I couldn't find a better quality and taste we had at Red Fort. The starters were amazing!! We ordered Hara Kebab, Soft Shell Crab, Hariyali Jhinga (prawns) and Lentil dumplings. All...

Used The Red Fort for business lunches and also for pleasure. The food is excellent and faultlessly cooked. Highly recommended is the shared platter for starters – a meze of choice parts of the starter menu; tikka salmon (melts in the mouth) and tikka chicken, delicate spinach patties filled with cheese and green chilli, monkfish amongst other choice bits. The mains were the king prawns (very meaty and substantial), stone bass, lentils, rice and paneer to share. All exquisitely cooked. Whilst the...

The worst indian in London. Extortionate pricing coupled with terrible quality I could not have been more disappointed. Food arrived quick, with no authentic taste. The bill arrived quicker. If you want to put a hole in your wallet at least do it in style and head to Amaya, Salloos or Cinnamon Kitchen. I am surprised its made Squaremeals best in Soho list. They usually know what they are talikng about. Well I do. I am an Indian.

I came here with my family on the weekend to celebrate my graduation and I had a wonderful evening. My parents chose The Red Fort as I love Indian food and it's known to be one of the best in London. The food was delicious and we had a wide range of dishes and platters the tandoori sea bass was particularly good and I particularly recommend the dum ke aloo, a sort of vegetable dumpling in a rich creamy sauce which was absolutely superb. The meals are richly cooked with fragrant spices with such...
