A Soho institution, the Red Fort has served renowned Indian cuisine on Dean Street since 1983. From the open kitchen, chefs use traditional grills and tandoor ovens to produce exciting but authentic food.

The Red Fort menu uses fresh British produce to create a range of traditional and contemporary dishes. Try slow-cooked lamb shank in nutmeg, cinnamon and bay leaf sauce, marinated loin of venison with clove, ginger, garlic and peppercorns, or roasted rabbit with mustard, chili, fennel and onion seeds. Aromatic fish dishes include steamed fillet of black cod in banana leaf with chili, garlic and coriander, and an enticing dish of scallop, squid, stone bass and king prawn in a spicy fennel, carom and coconut sauce. A range of vegetarian options is also available.

Decorated in rich red, The Red Fort Soho is befitting of its vibrant surroundings. A sommelier-selected wine list and signature cocktails amplify its sophistication.

In the heart of one of London’s most exciting areas, The Red Fort Indian restaurant is a 6-minute walk from Tottenham Court Road Tube Station.

    We had 2 course lunch menu for £15 and it was the best Indian food we had for a very long time. The portions were just right, a good mix of grill and curries and a few options of sides to top up. A very decent winelist for someone to impress their clients, ambience is good for business meetings.
    Would definitely come back and recommend to my colleagues.

    It was our second time at The Red and we were very happy to come back! The dinner, yesterday, was very good, the white wine cold perfect, the waiter very kind. We ordered a tasting menu and only the starters seemed to be less interesting as usual. All the rest, very tasty! The Red still remains a beautiful restaurant and we're going back!

    Food was good we were at the back with a large hen party so a lot on noise. The air-conditioning was not working so it ruined the meal as it was unpleasantly hot

    I have dined at The Red Fort on several occasions over the last few years while staying in London. The experience is always excellent. The food and the service are superb. There are a few very good Indian restaurants in London to choose from, The Red Fort is without doubt for me the best. I thoroughly recommend it.
