We went to La Porte des Indes on a Friday evening, we had a very disappointing meal. The menu is appalling but the cooking is really not good enough for what we expected. Blank samosas, hot sauce rancid, aubergines beignets with an heavy potato batter,...More

Situated in over several floors in an old building, this Indian restaurant serves a range of good curry. It's a bit mild for experienced curry eaters. But they'll make your dish more spicy if you ask. Kingfisher & Leffe are among the small beer selection....More

The place is really nice, quite a gem in Brussels. The food is great, try the red chicken, it's life changing. However serving was very very slow, so take some time and patience with you. We did complain about this and they were much faster...More

The food is Ok. We went in very late last night. But the owner still welcomed us warmly and recommend good food. The service was wonderful!

Set in a very charming old hôtel particulier, this restaurant serves a relatively wide array of quality Indian food. The staff is elegant and very helpful. It has the reputation to be the best Indian in Brussels.

My wife and I recently had dinner at La Porte des Indes. We heard that the restaurant was one of the - if not the - best Indian restaurant in Brussels. This made our disappointment even bigger. On Saturday nights the restaurant offers a buffet...More

Their lunch deals were great, and food is delicious here. With them now closing for lunch, I find it a little expensive for what you get. The staff is very attentive and polite though (rare for Brussels) and ladies get flowers when they leave. Nice...More

Great food, service and atmosphere, friendly staff. On the more expensive end of Indian food but all was delicious. Book in advance as it can get busy to the end of the week and at the weekend.

La Porte des Indes is widely celebrated as the best Indian restaurant in Brussels. Set in a beautifully converted Ixelles mansion on the heaving Avenue Louise, La Porte des Indes is decorated in rich wood carvings, warm red-toned colour scheme, masses of flowers and lush plantings, and Colonial style Indian furniture. The costumed waitstaff make the setting complete. This is another success from the Blue Elephant group, so you know the ingredients are of the highest quality. See for yourself. Roam the menu and try dishes like specialities starter of Crab Malabar, a warm salad of flaked crabmeat and corn kernels, main course of something classic like fiery chicken vindaloo and finish with a palate-freshening mango sorbet. Wines are thoughtfully matched to the dishes.
