La Porte des Indes: Like in the Time of the Maharajas

For 20 years, La Porte des Indes has treated Londoners to its little dishes of saveurs from Pondichery. Palm trees, fountains, golden touches, latticework and colonial furnishings, the sumptuous decor transports you directly to the time of the Maharajas.

To take full advantage of the culinary experience and talent of chef Mehernosh Mody, the best is for each person to order a different main and to share it all like a Bollywood banquet. To change it up from a Tikka Massala, try the Roganjosh, the Roast Black Cod or the sublime Goa Pork Vidaloo. As a side dish, the aubergine rougail and the pomegranate raita are definitely worth it.

Top tip: the last Friday of each month, you can learn to cook like an Indian chef. For £90, you will prepare and taste a lunch (starter-main-dessert) and take home a cookbook from La Porte des Indes and a spice mix.

Open everyday for lunch and dinner.
