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. Unusually for Belgian restaurants, they accept Amex. Nice, Indiana style decor.

The place is really nice, quite a gem in Brussels. The food is great, try the red chicken, it's life changing. However serving was very very slow, so take some time and patience with you. We did complain about this and they were much faster afterwards, but we should have not needed to do that.

The food is Ok. We went in very late last night. But the owner still welcomed us warmly and recommend good food. The service was wonderful!

Set in a very charming old hôtel particulier, this restaurant serves a relatively wide array of quality Indian food. The staff is elegant and very helpful. It has the reputation to be the best Indian in Brussels.

The place is enormous, on several floors and the staff are nice, the food is good but nothing amazing. it is quite a drive away from downtown Brussels so after spending all the tiem and the effort to get there it was slightly disappointing. The menu can be clearly updated with more modern Indian food like you have in London.

My wife and I recently had dinner at La Porte des Indes. We heard that the restaurant was one of the - if not the - best Indian restaurant in Brussels. This made our disappointment even bigger. On Saturday nights the restaurant offers a buffet which does not go cheap - 40 € per person - but with a relatively... More

Their lunch deals were great, and food is delicious here. With them now closing for lunch, I find it a little expensive for what you get. The staff is very attentive and polite though (rare for Brussels) and ladies get flowers when they leave. Nice touch :)

Great food, service and atmosphere, friendly staff. On the more expensive end of Indian food but all was delicious. Book in advance as it can get busy to the end of the week and at the weekend.

Food is absolutely delicious, atmosphere is very cosy (great for romantic/family dinner), service could be a bit better, as could the selection of wines. But overall, my favourite Indian resto in Brussels, been there a few times and will certainly go again!

We came here for a business dinner, quite a long ride from the centre of Brussels. Competent Indian cooking, although a bit stiff and directed towards business clients, but all the dishes were well done. Very polite and courteous staff. The décor and the setting look a bit Thai-influenced.

Description
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.
