La Porte des Indes is Indian cuisine on a grand scale, from the nine-metre waterfall cascading through the restaurant to the eight chefs in the kitchen. The food is just as spectacular, borrowing flavours from the former French colonies to add to its array of traditional dishes. Its central London location should mean you can spare some time for a visit to the Jungle Bar, where patrons are encouraged to throw peanut shells on the floor.

Fantastic ambiance, service, food and cocktails. Found this restaurant by chance and have since been here several times with friends and family and we have never left disappointed. Faboulous food. Well behaved kids would love it. No kids menu!

My husband and I have dined at this restaurant a couple of times mainly on special occasions and we loved it. The decor is amazing and I love their French-Creole menu. The staff were knowledgeable and genuine. The food can be pricey but your stomach will be happy!

This place is still as good as it has ever been. The food quality is excellent, not overly spiced; with all the flavours coming through. The atmosphere is good and the service very good. Prices are obviously on the high side but you know what you're letting yourself in for if you choose to eat here. My only complaint on... More

Whenever I am in London I try to book a meal here for the Sunday lunch buffet. The choice is vast, the food is delicious, the setting is beautiful and the service is attentive. The only down side is that it is extremely expensive! The buffet is good value for money as you can eat as much as you like... More

The welcoming was very friendly, staff was very helpfull with the menu. Orderer a pain killer as cocktail, but must say it tasted more like a mojito then a pain killer, despite the lemongrass and ginger in the drink, with 12 pounds it was a bit overpriced, And lacked a bit of style. As entry did take an assortiment of... More

The website and the awards are designed to give you the impression of a unique and luxurious dining experience matched by equivalent West End plus prices. The reality was we booked a table of five, arrived and watched the reception staff whisper secret seating instructions that saw us placed in a bland anteroom with no view and mostly populated by...

This is our seventh year that we have been going to La Porte on Mother's Day. It is one of my favourite restaurants and hence our two daughters arranges for brunch for us. Last two years, we have been booking with different friends in a group. There is a wide variety of food and dessert but they need to improve... More

I have been here many times and try to go there most of the times I visit London. Terrific ambiance - feels like you aren't in London. The menu has some great variety and given the unique influences you will find items on the menu that you typically cannot find at other restaurants. The variety at the Sunday brunch buffet... More

We had visited twice before some years ago and were going for a special treat for a family birthday. The decor was tired. The menus had food debris on them. I could not criticise the service particularly but you got the feeling that the staff were doing a job but not really enjoying themselves. I know that all staff are... More

Staying in Marylebone

Neighborhood Profile
Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
