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.

This was my first visit here, from the outside the size of the restaurant is quite deceiving. When you walk through the door it opens up over two floors, with a waterfall through the centre. There is also a bar area downstairs with very colourful wall paintings. The service was slightly slow for drinks at first but after that could... More

Me and my family went for lunch to celebrate birthdays and was quite surprised with the service and pricing! First impressions were good as the restaurant looked lovely, and when we sat down there was some confusion regarding the menu as there is so much choice with regards to the set menus so we had to have it all explained....

Seven of us visiting London on business had dinner here on December 4, 2014, at the recommendation of a friend. We had a good time, as we always do, but in spite of this restaurant and not because of it. Simply put, there is no reason in a city with so many Indian eateries as London to gamble on this... More

This place is over priced and below average. Trying to get a drink from the bar downstairs took a ridiculous amount of time. The staff didn't seem to know what they were there for. We were hurried to our table and the surroundings were lovely. The menu was stupidly expensive. The food was good but for the price it had... More

I tried this resturant on Saturday. The resturant was well decorated and nothing more that that. The food was below average. The prawns were very hard seems to be not fresh. The Biriany was the worst I've ever tried. The staff were rude and unfriendly. It is also overpriced, as the Biriany alone was 22 pounds! We ordered two starters... More

La Porte des Indes provides a delicious fusion between French and Indian cuisine and in my opinion you can't find a better curry across the whole of London! The restaurant itself has a stunning interior and a buzzing atmosphere. I would highly recommend the Scallops to start and the Poulet Rouge for main (with rice and a naan!) They also... More

We took our grown up children for a meal here Friday evening, the place was full upstairs and downstairs, the decor and size of the place is very impressive but the service on this occasion was not, I think we would still be waiting In the bar area had we not asked 4 different members of staff to seat us,...
