I have often walked past this restaurant and wondered about it.Well , today my best half surprised me and took me to lunch. I was amazed by the decor and the ambience. The menu was extensive with an unusual choice of fish and seafood dishes. We ordered the steamed lemon sole and Malabari crab which were delectable. The main course... More

This was my 2nd visit to La Porte des inḍes. Its a small restaurant when you look from outside but HUGE from inside. The decor is amazing. Food quality is very good. Not to oily / spicy. We called for a paneer makhani , tawa sabzi and dal taḍka. The laccha paratha is the best to have amongst the Indian... More

I've loved this restaurant for many years - it is part of the much-missed Blue Elephant group. The food is superb and the presentation really exceptional. Service is impeccably professional, efficient & polite. But it's the venue itself that is worth the visit. It used to be a nightclub a million years ago, the sort you saw in B&W films... More

One of the most disappointing dinging experiences in London we were a group of three who went for a dinner on a fateful night, the ambience is good I only wished the food was close enough to the hype. We ordered a mix set of dishes (veg & non-veg) with Naan bread, the kebab's needed chisel and hammer to cut... More

Had a lovely bank holiday lunch to celebrate my Mother-in-law's 75th birthday.Went for the veg option as that was the majority of our party have previously ate decent meat dishes. Lovely colonial surroundings over two floors and attentive service. Well worth a visit and definitely different stylistically.

Hugely disappointing food very average service but hugely expensive for the quality of food.... Visited this about 7 years ago and things have NOT changed at all. I feel it is stuck in a time warp and not moved on...... Considering the prices charged you can get much much better exceptional value elsewhere. My husband and I order the spiciest... More

I spent some of my childhood living in the Indian ocean, so to see the French / Indian cooking advertised was certainly a draw-card. The food tasted authentically Creole Indian to me and the mango cocktails were a treat. The decor is imaginative and really transports you into feeling you have left London far behind.

An Indian restaurant with a French flair with a great atmosphere and wonderful food in a super location , it is quite pricey, it is not fusion , but pure Indian with a French touch . It is worth a visit for it's uniqueness.

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

Neighbourhood Profile
Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods 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.
