Branding, Food & Beverage, Past Clients, Restaurants & Bars

Amin Ali founded The Red Fort almost 30 years ago. It’s unique blend of Mughal Court cooking has attracted politicians, entrepreneurs and celebrities alike over the years.

Head Chef, Azadur Rahman and his team of seven chefs have mastered the art of Mughal Court cooking over years. Starters include Tandoor seared Scottish Salmon with Mustard Oil and Red Chill; Lightly spiced grilled Monkfish with Ginger and Saffron; Mushrooms filled with Cheese, Green Chilli and White Pepper.

 Chef Azadur and his team has cooked many times for state dignitaries and Prime Ministers at Downing Street for the past 12 years.

There is a traditional grill situated in the middle of the open plan kitchen at The Red Fort and diners are encouraged to order some their specialities which include ‘Scottish lobster with saffron, garlic, cinnamon and nutmeg’  Mains include Jumbo Prawns marinated saffron, chilli and garlic’ and ‘Stone Bass fillet with mustard seed, coconut milk and curry leaf sauce.’

 Everyday, The Red Fort uses its huge Tandoor ovens to produce over twenty different breads, freshly baked to order, including everything from favourite ‘Peshawari naan’ to more typical ‘Makkai roti’ (maize flour bread) and served with six different homemade chutneys ranging from ‘Mango with curry leaves’ to ‘Banana with orange and cinnamon’.

The Red Fort interiors combine a contemporary feel with an atmosphere of ancient Indian tradition.  There will be a true sense of theatre in the restaurant created by the visible tandoor ovens and a copper mosaic-tiled water feature, based on classical Mughal garden design, located at the rear of the restaurant.  There is a real sense of the opulence of the Mughal Court created by the deep brown silk-lined walls, leather banquettes and images of The Red Fort in Delhi.  There are floating candles and rose petals used throughout, and natural materials such as Welsh slate and Jaipuri red sandstone have also been used along with authentic antiques and objets d’art to create the perfect Indo-British ambience.

Being located in the heart of vibrant Soho, The Red Fort is ideally located for a quick lunch and also pre or post-theatre dining. They accordingly have an extremely reasonable pre-theatre menu at £18 for 2 course plus tea or coffee, which is available before 7pm.
