The food is nice but not for someone from India/Pakistan/Bangladesh... bit soft on Masal... Good service and excellent environment... Pls check for parking and also the timing. The breakfast on weekend is good though.... Recommended for a good fine dining.... if you really need to eat good Indian food but expensive...

I've been here a few times and always loved it so am so so disappointed. The whole experience was abysmal. The service was frankly unbelievably bad. The food whilst tasty in parts was so overpriced for what it was and really rather unremarkable. It needs a serious rethink! There are so many places so much better within walking distance.

Negative reviews surprise me, although with 300 covers (i asked) it must be difficult to control when its busy and the complaints about price are... More

We went as a group of 14 people on a business trip.We stayed at the nearby Amba hotel so the restaurant was an easy walk away from our accommodation. The food was delightful and the service was excellent.

It's an expensive place but serves excellent indo - French food. The fish starter is excellent and the pistachio phirni is a must have! Have been twice, will certainly visit again.

The restaurant looks like nothing much from outside but inside it is huge. I attended a business networking evening there and the food was great, the staff were helpful and attentive.

The restaurant itself is very cosy with an exotic decoration with palms and even a small waterfall. Their idea is to mix the French colony food of the Ponderri region of India with traditional Indian. It is actually very very good. Staff could be a bit more attentive but all in all very good.

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.
