Tasty lunch but too quiet!

I went here with clients on a Wednesday lunchtime and apart from our table of 4, there was only 1 other table of 2 in there, which resulted in hushed conversation due to no background music either. The decor is very elaborate and quite impressive and you can't fault the food or service. Would go... read more

We went to this restaurant over the weekend for Brunch/Buffet for my mum's birthday celebrate. Restaurant was lovely with beautiful decor. Food was tasty and had enough veggie options. Some items weren't very hot at times, however, overall we had a nice experience.

We were here (again) for the Sunday help-yourself buffet - a sumptuous array of starters, mains and desserts, with chefs cooking up individual things for you there and then. Food was lovely and the staff friendly and efficient. Nice downstairs bar for a pre-drink. A bit closer to proper Indian food than your average curry house. Live jazz on Sundays.... More

As it was christmas time we had chosen items from the special menu. we have been here for the brunch, which is awesome, but a la carte is just fantastic especially for the mains. A supervisor advised and recommended us a few items and was she right. just perfect! you really get what... More

Food is excellent, they have the live stalls for Bhel puri, Ragda apttice, Masala utappam etc which me and my family liked alot. There is a plenty of food choice. We remembered an... More

Form what I had heard I expected a lot more. The place was okay, it certainly did not WOW me. This was a birthday dinner and we ordered the Thalis(sp?) the sampler plates. We did the meat, seafood and veggie platters. Firstly I found the food to be cold. It appeared to be reheated servings - but reheated to a... More

We dined here on Christmas Eve so it was a bit busier than usual, however, as the restaurant is much larger inside than it would appear from the outside, it was not in any way 'crowded'. I visit this restaurant whenever I have time in London and it never disappoints! Excellent, tasty Indian food, and with the French influence, more... More

The food is excellent. Really, some of the best Indian food I have ever had. Service is great. Worth noting though that this is a very large restaurant - perhaps more than 100 tables? Don't expect an intimate dining experience a deux. It is a pity that the management ruin an excellent and imaginative menu by charging an automatic 12%... More

Food was very good whilst the decor was somewhat bizarre ; looks like a 1980,s jungle type scene .perhaps the set menus are good value but the Al Carte was expensive . Overall good food , quirky atmosphere and a bit pricey

The restaurant is so beautiful from inside.Food was average. I found a rubberband in my curry .We called the manager and he took it off the bill and offered replacement but obviously i didnt feel like eating anymore. It is overpriced .Staff is pleasant but everyone looked like they were in a hurry! Its worth a visit once. Plus point... More

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.
