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.

Awesome food ...

Ordered the house menu and wanted to add the Black Cod, unfortunately at 7.45 this was sold out and there was only 2 lobsters left... Apart from the lack of choices the food was spectacular. I would have given this 5 stars but the service let the restaurant down.

This restaurant has a great ambiance about it. You could clearly see the fusion of Indian and French in one place. It's great for romantic meal, or with family and friends. Amazing food, one of the best meals I had in London. Their Chicken Tandoori tasted great along with the Naan bread. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Truly a... More

I had dessert and tea today at La Porte des Indes. (Indian- French) My order was the beautifully presented Rasmalai (poached cheese dumplings in rose milk and sprinkled with cardamom), the taste was real and it was not too sweet. The waitress recommended trying the masala tea, which I did. The tea was tasty and mild in spices. My light... More

Watta amazing restaurant for enjoying a Sunday afternoon brunch with delicious offerings across various Indian dishes. Coming from a food critic, must say the taste and style of presentation across the tables were quite impressive! Starters, Veg and Non Veg main course dishes were mouth watering and couldn't have asked for more. Choice of dessert was certainly the icing on... More

I have now been to Porte des Indes several times and it has never failed to deliver very high quality and unique Indian dishes. The emphasis at Porte des Indes (as the name suggests) is a kind of fusion of French and Indian cuisines. All of the food is very fresh and the service always flawless. The atmosphere is quite...

So many things to say about this place...but almost all negatives. Ok, the food is good. But like many other Indian restaurants in London. The prices are ridiculous! The noise inside is like being at a rock concert: we barely could talk to each other. The decor is soooo ooold....I get it, I get it, it is on purpose but... More

I was surprised to find such a large and calm oasis right in the middle of London. Really enjoyed the atmosphere at Porte des Indes and the attentive service. We did go there for the Sunday brunch which had quite a nice and extensive selection. The food was very tasty, albeit not too spicy and I would be happy to... 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.
