What can I say? Other than the interior looking fairly nice, this restaurant is terrible in every aspect. The food itself is simply bad and feels old. The service is average and the prices are insane. We paid 220+ pounds for 3 people and felt completely ripped off. The price for what you get is a joke and when we... More

This is a well established, popular and capacious restaurant that I have visited previously for Sunday lunch. However, on this occasion, it was midweek for dinner. It's always best to make a table reservation to avoid disappointment. As others have said, it can be a 'hit and miss' affair; I recall this experience lunching one Sunday where a selection dishes...

From the outside it looks small but once inside it is a huge place filled with lovely plants which makes you feel you are in a large conservatory. The food and service are good. They do have a Buffet lunch on Sunday afternoon with a Jazz band in attendance.

Solid performance - excellent service, wide menu (representing a variety of different Indian kitchen), every dish a positive experience and on top a nice atmosphere!

As others have written it's a massive place but whether you enjoy the ambience or not depends very much on where they sit you. We had to wait 15 mins past our original booking time and were shunted off in a corner so it was like eating in a fancy basement, well away from what looked like a grand main... More

The restaurant is in a good location. However, the ushering in staff at entrance are a let down as they don't seem enthused upon seeing the guests and do not seem welcoming. The food quality is not particularly great. The service was alright, not particularly delightful. Overall, a pretty average dining experience, not worth the price one paid for :(

Was great, good atomosphere, great food. A bit pricy but great. The service was excellent. You have to book as it gets busier in the weekend.

The place is big with. Ice interior, we didn't have reservation but we were still welcomed and greeted nicely. We had starters for 3 (peaces of chicken - sambosa and shrimps) was well marinated but wasn't the great I tasted. Main course was chicken bryani - fish on banana leaves and butter chicken with naan bread. For me the taste... More

Went there for dinner, beautiful interior and very friendly staff. Ordered the non veg tasting menu and every dish tasted delicious. The 'poulet rouge' and the saffron rice was the best in my opinion. Slightly expensive, otherwise it's an amazing experience.

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.
