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.

We recently went here with a group of 20-25 people for our late christmas party. The atmosphere was nice and the service was better then in any other restaurant I went to before. Myself I am not a fan of indian food, and probably never will be but food was okay. Myself I would not pay that amount... read more

This smart and upmarket large restaurant is well worth a visit. The staff were really helpful as our party expanded from 10 to 13, and fitting us in was seamless. The menu is large and we all chose the tasting menu and were greatly impressed - the vegetarian tasting option was enormous. The food was expertly presented and delicious

8 of us had dinner here on Saturday night. We'd heard good things about the place so were looking forward to the meal. The restaurant is large and covers 2 floors. We had a drink in the bar whilst waiting for everyone to arrive. When one of our group who is doing 'dry January' asked if they had non-alcoholic beers... More

We were a group of 8 celebrating a 30th birthday so were pleasantly surprised by the decor and the atmosphere - it is definitely somewhere special and different to eat. The welcome was very friendly and we had a great table. It all started to go a bit downhill when the starters arrived. Mine was wrong and they completely forgot... More

I visited here for lunch with a couple of friends, I had heard about La Porte des Indes but never had gotten round to going before this trip, I booked our table and although we were about 10-15 minutes early they were more than happy to seat us. The interior of the restaurant is sumptuous and has a very elegant... More

Went to this restaurant last night, lovely place but extremely over priced, starters at around £14.00 wine around £30.00 you are looking to spend aroun£100.00 per head, which I wouldn't mind if it was worth it , we had a novice waiter that when asked him a question about the wine he didn't have a clue, a restaurant of this...

I've been there with my team. We have been impressed by location, ample and elegant and food which is delicious. We had selection of starters and then various main courses, lobster, lamb byriani and tandoori dishes. All fresh, delicates and great spices, both mild and strong. Selection of wine is also more than satisfactory. Not a cheap place, but it's... More

Love this restaurant. The narrow entrance opens, Tardis like, into a charming restaurant on several levels. The lush plants, banks of orchids and marble waterfall all add to the dining experience but the food is really terrific. Having travelled many times to India the food here is a happy memory trigger, Malabar crab a special favourite.

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.
