Time Out Says

Taking inspiration from the Pondicherry region, a former French colony in the south of India, La Porte Des Indes serves up something different to the other Indian restaurants around town. Here, you can try a contemporary taste of India with a touch of France thrown in. The combination results in exciting flavour combinations such as tandoori foie gras served with honey naan, and duck breast in a tamarind sauce. The restaurant’s ambience is more like a bar, illuminated with neon lights and a stunning crystal light installation hanging over the centre of the dining room. If you’re not looking for a full-on dining experience, take a seat in the bar area, with low seating that is perfect for small plates and mixed beverages. The knowledgeable staff are at ease making recommendations, and every dish arrives perfectly presented. All in all, this is a stylish dining experience, which goes someway to making up for what it sometimes lacks in atmosphere.
