Leonardo DiCaprio and Kylie Minogue have both eaten here.
The unassuming frontage betrays an opulent and luxurious interior, decorated in French Indian colonial style. The restaurant covers two floors and is quite memorable, with its stunning white marble staircase, 4oft Moghul waterfall, Jungle Bar and private rooms, all set off with exotic plants and flowers.
As well as classic Indian dishes, it offers interesting specialities from the former Indian French colonies. Trying the platters of starters and mains is highly recommended. La Porte des Indes is also well known for its fruit cocktails – the Karma, a fresh coconut drink served from the shell, is particularly delicious.
