We thought the food was amazing. My husband loved the Dhaba Murgh with a three cheese naan and will have difficulty being tempted to try something else when we return. I thought the goat curry was wonderful; flavourful soft meat in a beautifully balanced sauce which were well complemented by the recommended lacy rice pancakes. We both enjoyed our mixed... More

Eaten here many times, it's always a great experience . Going from a very drab exterior into a palm tree , niagra falls inspired interior is quite literally jaw dropping , reminds me of the tardis. Food is excellent with some very unusual dishes and so is service , love the outfits . They even do deliveries via Addison Lee... More

It has been my third visit. Twice I was a guest. The ambience and decor is lovely. The food is not bad. I took my mum and my cousin for dinner. Two things slightly spoilt the evening. The table was wobbly, so the tea (served in an espresso cup) kept spilling to mum's embarrassment and discomfort.

London has so many excellent Indian and curry restaurants, I think if this were located somewhere else, perhaps Munich, it would get 4 stars. I'd like to give it 3.5 stars. Overall very good Indian food, large portions, nice balance of spice to heat. We ordered a number of dishes, none stood out however all were quite good. Service as... More

I make sure every time I am in London to have a meal here. Nicely decorated in traditional Indian style it presents a cool atmosphere. Parsi fish is still same but taste of other dishes are not the same as it used to be. Much regret that this place is not keeping up to what it was known as French... More

Was on my annual holiday to London when I reunited with a family member and her husband for dinner. Chose this restaurant since it was close to their Park Lane hotel. It came recommended by the hotel concierge, but honestly we had no idea how good or bad it would be since we didn't have time to look up reviews.... More

An authentic Indian Meal experience, however, service needs to be bit faster to be suitable for business meetings. The presentation and the portions both are equally pleasing and the taste of fresh spices being used is evident. Would recommend it.

I've been coming here for years but finally decided to commit to TripAdvisor. This is an oasis in the west end of London. The outside is unassuming and gives little indication as to the surprise that awaits. The interior is nothing shy of spectacular with lush palm trees, beautiful flowers and a courtyard atmosphere. The menu is very different and... More

We took a chance and went to this restaurant after we walked by it on the way to the Cumberland hotel. The good points the service and food was excellent. The way this restaurant is decorated makes you feel like you are in another country! The only reason I gave it a 4 star is it is expensive but we... More

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.
