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.

Lovely, Expensive Food

Great setting, service good(ish) but I'm not sure if this place offers complete value for money. You'll have to decide yourself but make sure you bring plenty of money!!!!!!!

I understand the mixed ratings received by this restaurant, most of them being based on price as yes, this is not a cheap indian family operated shop, but rather a place trying to offer a luxury experience while keeping authenticity in the plates...probably a lost bet at the start as traditional india cuisine is already refined to a certain level...

Good ambience but lousy service, and mediocre food- poor value for one's money. They even forgot to get the birthday sparkler I had asked for with the dessert

Went there for family dinner expecting a special restaurant. Slightly disappointed overall Decor was nice in an old world way Service okay, but disappointed when asked about different dishes was encouraged to a order a lot more than we could eat. I don't mind order but do not wasting food specially due to poor advice by staff Food was nothing... More

We went here for the weekend buffet menu for my dad's birthday and I let them know of my onion intolerance, admittedly not far in advance but they were unbelievably rude. They basically said they couldn't accommodate me and when I made a fuss, the manager came out and said i could choose one curry off the main menu that... More

Visited here yesterday to celebrate our anniversary. To summarise the food has no flavour; the salmon in the mixed grill was very overcooked, the black cod was full of very large bones which should have been removed. We complained about the black cod and the waiter seemed shocked that we even had a problem with this! I have eaten black... More

This used to be a favourite of ours a few years back but since then we have discovered the wonder of alot of fabulous indian fusion restaurants and quite frankly this does not enter the top ten for us. It is pricey and somewhat off putting by the distant approach of the staff and management. Maybe to be expected from... More

We've visited this London mainstay many times over the years, enduring too high prices for average food in an above average atmosphere. Its professed orientation to the cuisine of Pondicherry falls a bit short, but the food is certainly a step up from Brick Lane. The decor is its selling point, but, at the end of the day, neither the... 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.

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.
