REVIEW – Buffet lunch at Red Fort, Drummond Street

I have enjoyed a few lunches at the Red Fort in Drummond Street thanks to their excellent buffet offer.  Always busy with students who pay £6 and families that pay under £7 for an adult and £3.50 for children.  This includes a welcome drink and an ice cream with tea or coffee to finish off the meal.

Red Fort buffet time

We were welcomed by the staff and seated, but it wasn’t really explained to us how it worked and if we were allowed more than one visit to the food (we were).  There are enough choices to satisfy both vegetarians and meat eaters.  The choices when we dined consisted of one table with lamb madras, chicken pathia, chicken korma, chicken tikka bhuna, pilau rice and chicken chat pat.

Meat options

And on the other table, were the vegetarian choices of mixed vegtable pakora, chana herbs, vegetable jalfrezi, tarka dal alongside rice and nan bread.

Vegetarian and side dishes

Not one to by shy of food, I piled a lot of everything on the plate and retreated to my table for a feast.  The food was ok, but not outstanding.  It’s certainly good value and perfect for filling up on.

A bit of everything

I had a second plateful as did my three dining partners and left ourselves too full for the ice cream for dessert.

There is no corkage charge for BYOB and house wine is reasonable at £11 a bottle.  Red Fort also do pre theatre dining deals.

Not my favourite Indian restaurant in town, but for that price – it certainly satisfies an Indian meal fix.
