Food nwas lovely, we had a vegetarion menu. Nice gin cocktails, wine was so so, would not recommend. service slow but okay.
It's closing down 10 December and the attitude of the staff reflected this. Shame it used to be good
The food was excellent. The prices were a bit over-the-top for an Indian restaurant and the portions didn't justify it. But, the food was great, so I am not going to complain too much, it just means I won't come here as often as I would maybe like to.
£9 for a pint of Cobra and no atmosphere. Food OK. Overall , Overpriced and Empty ... not what it used to be
I have used the restaurant on numerous occasions over the years and always had good food and good company
A shame it’s closing on 22nd December
If you want an Indian with a twist you should try here before they are gone
It was okay service was not good at all
It was not brilliant
Excellent as always
Great location, stunning ambiance, Indian food with a positive twist, friendly manager and attentive service make this place a worthwhile place to visit. The big negative is the price, food items are clearly over priced which makes frequent visits a problem. Unfortunately, heard from the manager that the restaurant will be permanently shutting down on the 10th December due to their inability to negotiate a reasonable lease extension.
Lovely atmosphere, good service. £90 for 2 curries a starter and water is bit too much.
Excellent service coupled with great authentic food. A sheer delight and a pleasure for a special dining evening out! We have been there before and will continue to go there. A very small gripe however, when paying top prices for such a great place it would have been nice for the waiters/waitresses to check if our wine glasses needed topping up. Now that would have been the icing on the cake for great service!
We were visiting London, from the States, wanting authentic Indian food. La Porte did not disappoint. My friend had never had Indian food before, now he is hooked.
The decor feels dated and a little faded. The food was OK but did not live up to the billing and was lukewarm. It seems expensive for basically a buffet meal. The service was a bit hit and miss; and really annoyed at the end when the requested bill was plonked visibly in front of invited friends rather than handled discreetly.
First time visit to the La Porte des Indes a very upmarket Indian restaurant. Whilst not cheap, it's £6 a pint of Cobra and main course around £24, the food was delicious and would recommend to anyone who haven't been. The outside looks rather small but once inside it's amazing how many people table are available.
We had fun and the food was terrific
The place needs a facelift. A restaurant of such stature cannot remain idle but needs to be evolving.
We have visited this restaurant on numerous occasions and are always impressed with the excellent service and great food.
Overall amazing food and customer service, great for vegetarians with a separate veggie menu, amazing cocktails and beautiful decor. Would definitely pay another visit and recommend
Years of going La Porte des Indes still leave me unprepared for the insides of what looks like a regular, high street Indian restaurant from the outside. The food is fun and an interesting take on regular Indian food with the French and Cochin influences.
The food was delicious, well prepared and presented. The service was not as attentive and personable as expected but felt like a comprehensive set process. I found the meal a little overpriced.
