General comments: Spaceman has little to say on this establishment apart from "Lal Qila" means "red castle" or "red fort", fact fans.  Oh and it's been a while since we have been there.

"Sauce not spicy enough (I don't mean hot, I mean tasty spicy).  The naan was disappointing - too brittle, no stretchiness, if you know what I mean.  I liked the Cobra beer on draught, though.  [Amen to that.]"





"I thought the service was pretty good (though my starter arrived after everybody else had finished eating theirs) and the restaurant itself was fine.  I've had cheaper curries but there again I did have four pints (I think) so maybe that had an influence.  However the food was very disappointing.  I had chicken pakora for starter.  While there was plenty of it, it did not have much taste.  The curry I ordered was a bhuna.  What I got was far closer to a rogan josh (in fact, if I have not known what it was purported to be, I would have thought it was a rogan josh [fresh back from India tasting authentic dishes, perhaps?]).  The (disappointingly small) pieces of chicken were swimming in a tomato-based sauce with very little taste (other than tomato).  The naan bread was good, though.  Overall, I would not put it high on my list of places to return to."
