Popped into this empty, unassuming Indian restaurant without booking and was mildly amused when the maitre de spent five minutes consulting his booking list before offering us a table by tbe door. Ten minutes later I realised that he had been trying to squeeze us in as tbe restaurant rapidly filled up soon sounded liked a football stadium on match... More

We travel a lot and dine in many Indian restaurants! This one is very good! Not licensed so you can take alcoholic drinks in if you want to. We had king prawn madras and chicken dhansak both really good. Quick service and friendly staff, highly recommend this restaurant.

Their baby needed a feed when we arrived and the staff did not worry about it, in fact did everything they could to assist by giving us an extra table for all our things! When the baby got tired they gave a table... More

Popped in because the Thai place wasn't open. So glad we did, it was delicious. The staff were great too, attentive and helpful even though there were a couple of larger groups. One of the cheaper meals we've had in Lyme Regis but some of the best food.

Decided to try this place on our first night in Lyme Regis Busy little restaurant so definitely the need to book - they don't sell alcohol so take your own , which many customers do. Service was great and the food was amazing

First night on holiday in Lyme Regis we decided to go to Lal Qilla for dinner. We have previously been to Lyme, so decided to book a table the day before we arrived. Would definitely recommend booking a table to avoid disappointment, as its a very busy restaurant. Yet again the food did not disappoint. Delicious tasting curry, full of... More

I was in the town for an evening and this place was highly recommended by the locals I was staying with. The food and service were both excellent.

Tasty and very well-balanced spice in our dishes. Very good service. Take your own beer if required. The Naga chicken was excellent and both the chapattis and cucumber raita were delicious. Would definately recommend

found a gem of a restaurant, good food, service second to none, all the staff we met were polite and friendly. You have to bring your own drinks but that to me is no hassle. We visited twice on the same weekend so we can say they are consistently good. Try it you will not be disappointed, but book they... More
