Lal Qila is one of those standby Indian restaurants down Wilmslow Road that Manchester’s legions of South Asian food fanatics head to when their sifting through the myriad options that Rusholme’s famous Curry Mile has to offer. A certifiable classic – there’s another outpost up on Deansgate – Lal Qila’s a la carte menu and set menus are a delight. The menu at La Qila’s Rusholme branch is expansive, with many chicken, meat and vegetarian options, plus special sizzlers, the chef’s recommendations and a unique desni apna-style selection of deeply authentic options. With great set menu deals, the ability to cater to large groups, Lal Qila needs to be in your little red book of the best Indian restaurants in Manchester.
My family wanted to go somewhere in Manchester for a nice meal. Having been here once before a few years ago and having really enjoyed the food, I suggested we go again. The food was delicious and as good as I remembered. The staff were very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. The price was reasonable in particular given the city centre location and the portion sizes were just right. Will definitely be back again sooner.
A warm welcome to greet you on arrival. Friendly and efficient service and a great meal. The surroundings are relaxing and this is a restaurant to return to.
Excellent on all fronts. Particularly as they made alterations to make my meal vegan. Friendly fast service but not rushed. I've been before I'll go again.
