This is one of my favorite restaurants in the world. The atmosphere is amazing and the food is outstanding. The staff is very attentive. If you haven't tried it you must. Go hungry and do the prix menu. 59£ but worth it. Such a great mix of spices and flavors for any palette.

La Porte des Indes remains one of my favorite Indian restaurants - not just in London but anywhere in the world. I have enjoyed eating here every time I have visited London and treated friends, family and business associates. It is surely pricey but the ambiance is great and the food is simply fantastic. Thank you

Wow this place was great. I've been before but not for the buffet. The buffet starters and desserts especially were show stealers. I hate wastage and the portion sizing was just correct. Will go again with parents as they'd like this. Decor very pretty. Staff lovely and humorous.

One of the best restaurants I have been to. It takes you back to being served as and in royal place. It has an different approach to selection of food which is way bigger list of options than any other place you might have been to. This place will call you back again and again.

Went for Anniversary dinner and had an excellent time. Food was 1st class! My biryani needed salt but was nevertheless excellent, tender Lamb, with fluffy spiced rice. Enough for two so be wary of portions. My husband had the Goat curry and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Wait staff were very knowledgeable and gave good guidance. The ambience was very good apart from the odd child running back and forth.
Overall an excellent experience.

You feel the heavy colonial past of India when you enter the restaurant -which is much bigger on the inside than you may think when you enter. You really feel you're on the set of Passage to India and the Indian hunger. The service is impeccable. The food is excellent, if a bit on the pricey side but if it's for a special occasion...
The menu is not your typical chicken Korma or tikka massala -although if that's what you prefer eating at a Indian, you certainly can. They call they're Tikka Massala "Poulet Rouge" to reflect the fact that they were a French colony at some stage. A lot of the dishes have a French twist to them. I tried their Cassoulet de Fruits de Mer. Excellent.
I have eaten there several times and have never been disappointed but remember, it's not going to cost you £20 per person.
