About Lal Qila Restaurant

The Lal Qila themed restaurant is located at the Palm Continental Hotel in the City of Gold, Johannesburg. Although it is perched in the commercial epicentre of the Gauteng Province, this restaurant celebrates traditional Pakistani and Indian cuisine in an ambience of comfort, class and culture.

This unique restaurant and its décor are grand and bold, with brilliant touches of colour and a stunning display of ornate textures and textiles. It has been inspired by the Mughlai era, which was during India’s medieval times. The cuisine on offer at Lal Qila is, then, a combination of authentic Mughlai, tandoori, live barbecue, and traditional Pakistani dishes. These tantalise the taste buds of even the most discerning diners, and are particularly favoured by those with a love for exotic cuisine.

There is a breakfast buffet every day from 07h00 to 10h30. The lunch menu is an a-la-carte one that is made up of lip-smacking dishes celebrating traditional flavours with innovative twists. Lunch is served from Monday to Thursday, 12h00 to 16h00. On Fridays, the lunch buffet consists of six courses and is served between 14h00 and 16h00. The lunches on weekends and public holidays are made of 52 dishes and are served between 11h00 and 16h00.

The buffet dinners are served every night in two sessions (the first starts at 18h30 and the second at 20h30). These buffets showcase no fewer than 72 dishes that are sure to appeal to just about any diner, no matter your preference. There is a romantic candlelight buffet on Fridays for couples wanting to complement quality time together with delicious dishes with a difference. Children under three years of age dine for free.

Lal Qila is a fantastic adventure for diners and visitors to South Africa that want to add an element of exotic adventure to their breakfasts, lunches and dinners.

The Palm Continental Hotel is in Fordsburg, Johannesburg, which is about 27 kilometres from the OR Tambo International Airport.
