I am not an expert when it comes to Indian food. I haven't been to an Indian restaurant for some time now, but this restaurant made me realize that I am missing out on some good food. The waiters were friendly and helpful and the food was excellent and they adapted the taste to accommodate the fact that some can't... More

I went to this restaurant on Saturday 23rd July, it was for my grandfathers 80th birthday. We decided to drive, which was great because the restaurant offered discounted car parking.....Great Idea. We had our 2 year old with us, so we had a buggy and unfortunately the restaurant does not have a lift but I believe it's a listed building... More

The decor was odd, with too much happening. The food was very disappointing, chicken tikka masalla was £24, it was a pale yellow curry cooked in excessive amounts of ginger - NOT NICE at all. The portion was also very small. Also ordered Saag Paneer, the portion size for this was good but it was not seasoned well. All the... More

Near Marble Arch, this distinctive restaurant offers Indian cuisine in a French tradition that is more fragrant and less aggressive than the usual British tradition. The house specialities are well worth trying. Portions are small but tasty, and there is a separate vegetarian menu if required. The large dining room is made more intimate by potted palms and an indoor... More

This is a great restaurant. Atmosphere is nice, food is excellent. It is fine to bring children here. Overall everyone in our party loved this place. I would definitely recommend it if in the mood for Indian cuisine in London. It is a little pricey but definitely worth it!

As you would expect knowing you are going to a French Indian restaurant it is going to be different. You enter through a corridor and head downstairs to the bar, then you get the big unveil. The restaurant opens into a large space with palm trees and mirrors to give the impression it's even bigger, you do feel you have... More

It is a lovely restaurant and very different looking, menu is great but small, with some really different choices on there. Food was very tasty and good, but no better than a good curry house and twice the price. Didn't quite get it??? Also closes quite early for London/indian restaurant.

Not overly impressed I have to say. Near impossible to get a drink while seated. They don't seem to have any cold drinks and even when asking for ice you'll have to keep pestering them. Portion sizes are average at best. The waitress spilled drinks all over 2 of my friends. We were then told we would not be charged... More

This is a no nonsense, true Indian restaurant that offers the right portioned dishes with just the right flavours. Whether it's meat dishes or vegetarian, this classy upmarket indian restaurant is easily one of the best. The restaurant is fully packed with diners so advance booking is thoroughly recommended. Great vegetarian choices too.

This is a lovely restaurant with excellent service. The food is great, proper Indian meal, to be eaten to its fullest. The service - next to none and Mr Savio is just brilliant and so welcoming. .

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.
