We had the vegetable biryani and really liked it here. However, I also tried a few of my friends dishes including the shrimp curry and white daal which were not so good. They do not make clear on the menu which dishes are gluten free...More

We went to La Porte des Indes on a Friday evening, we had a very disappointing meal. The menu is appalling but the cooking is really not good enough for what we expected. Blank samosas, hot sauce rancid, aubergines beignets with an heavy potato batter,...More

Situated in over several floors in an old building, this Indian restaurant serves a range of good curry. It's a bit mild for experienced curry eaters. But they'll make your dish more spicy if you ask. Kingfisher & Leffe are among the small beer selection....More

La Porte des Indes is widely celebrated as the best Indian restaurant in Brussels. Set in a beautifully converted Ixelles mansion on the heaving Avenue Louise, La Porte des Indes is decorated in rich wood carvings, warm red-toned colour scheme, masses of flowers and lush plantings, and Colonial style Indian furniture. The costumed waitstaff make the setting complete. This is another success from the Blue Elephant group, so you know the ingredients are of the highest quality. See for yourself. Roam the menu and try dishes like specialities starter of Crab Malabar, a warm salad of flaked crabmeat and corn kernels, main course of something classic like fiery chicken vindaloo and finish with a palate-freshening mango sorbet. Wines are thoughtfully matched to the dishes.
