Often topping the charts when it comes to London’s best Indian restaurants, The Red Fort in Soho is an unparalleled Indian restaurant in the heart of the city. Situated along Dean Street, The Red Fort Restaurant has been pushing the envelope when it comes to fine Indian cuisine for over 30 years. Head chef Azadur Rahman and his team, hand-picked from India’s finest kitchens, are known for their bold, fusion-oriented approach to British-Indian cuisine. Their use of British produce enables them to adhere to an ethos whereby only the freshest ingredients make the grade required by every carefully prepared dish. This locally-sourced, seasonal philosophy is married to Rahman and his expert team’s understanding of Indian culinary traditions when it comes to cooking technique and spice-blends, resulting in a deliciously fresh and delicately balanced dishes each and every time.
A great example of The Red Fort Indian Restaurant’s signature British-Indian fusion cuisine is their special Scottish lobster with saffron, garlic, cinnamon and nutmeg. Keeping it traditional, London’s The Red Fort uses their huge, onsite tandoor ovens to bake over twenty different kinds of bread and naan fresh every day. Pair these with homemade chutneys like their mango with curry leaves or their banana with orange and cinnamon and you’ve already got a simple Indian meal on your hands that can’t be beat when it comes to authenticity. London diners enjoy this inimitable taste of India in the elegant interior of The Red Fort’s Dean Street restaurant that again blends an iconic, modern style with flourishes quoted from the Indian Imperial Court.

Between these two famous dining and drinking establishments, you’ve got your night cut out and brightly spiced for you.
We love the location, service and food. We have been going to Red Fort over 20 years. We find their authentic takes on many of our favorite dishes excellent. We stay in Soho when we come to London so its always good for us, but for those going to the theatre is a great pre-theatre spot too.
Excellent fresh and varied dishes. We are never unhappy with our experience at the Red Fort. We live in Toronto and return there every time we visit London.
Food is of the highest quality; it is excellently presented and service is very good indeed. It is comparable to the very best Indian restaurants but not as expensive
Excellent food, excellent service. We really enjoyed our time there. The meals are copious. We had the chicken, perfectly spiced. The rice was perfect too.
We are exploring Indian restaurant and this was a nice option. If you are not used to very spicy food, you need to tell the waitresses and they will provide a milder option. Service was good and prices are little but high. Good location, very central.
Great food and ambience. Also close to wonderful Dog and Duck. One of the very best Curry Houses in the UK and Ireland. Good value
Great food and service! Delicious cocktails too. Very authentic food and definitely recommend. The scallops were were simply wonderful - full of flavour and just the right portion size.
Nice restaurant and good location in SoHo Very good food and excellence service It is the second time we were there and were not disappointed We will come again
The place si nice, notthing special, but the food si really good!!! The service was medium, in the range. I will came back Just for the food.
Food was excellent, the service is quite reserved, efficient but lacking in warmth, it's a little pricey compared to say Dishoom but perhaps the central Soho location explains that.
