La Porte des Indes Review

Emerald Street 04 Mar 2014

Imagine the splendour of The Ritz combined with Mahiki kitsch and add an Indian twist – you’re getting an idea of La Porte des Indes. Conventional on the outside, it transforms inside, Narnia-like, into a grand venue with a waterfall, marble staircase and ceiling-high palm tree. Sink a fruity cocktail or coconut water from the shell in the Jungle Bar before an awe-inspiring Gallic-influenced Indian banquet. There are options for starters and mains, such as divine king scallops in saffron sauce, dal puri and spiced red chicken.
