Description: 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.

I went here with my girlfriend a few months ago. The food was great but in my opinion really not worth the £125 bill we had. The atmosphere and surroundings were great but I've been to Indian restaurants where the good was just as good and paid much much less with bigger portions...

The decor at La Porte des Indes is most exotic but even more so is the food. The black cod after the soft shell crabs were so very good. Service was excellent.

We have been going to Porte for many many years for Sunday brunch and have always enjoyed the food. The starters are always the main attraction though yesterday (July 3rd ) they were a bit below par and so were the desserts. However, the service is excellent and all the staff bend over backwards to help you out. Yesterday the... More

After 4 years I came back to this theme restaurant in Marylebone. Incomparison to former times some splendor and enthusiasm was missing. The card is still excellent and prices are upper middle class. I would recommend the owners to bring some punch back to this place to bring excitement back to the visiting guest.

A really wonderful setting, a bit like one would imagine old. colonial India. Booked for Sunday Brunch, arrived 10 minutes early and nothing was ready, sent to the bar and ignored for a further 15 minutes. No offer of a drink yet others were enjoying one, no service to speak of and when we enquired with one of the staff... More
