The food is as fine as its surroundings. Intricate and well-crafted dishes fill the pages of its menu; all Gallic inspired and offering an interesting, not-often-seen perspective on Indian cuisine. The menu maison is an apt way to fully explore the menu’s offerings, giving you a sample of everything. We were delighted with an opener of seared scallops with saffron sauce and curry leaf, next to a perfect steamed parcel of sole with fragrant coriander.
The entire experience was underpinned by professional service and quaffable wine. We tried their Blue Elephant Cuvee Royale Thaie, a Riesling-esque white made especially for La Porte des Indes in Alsace.
For a dining experience a far cry away from your average vindaloo or even your average French bistro, I recommend this place. La Porte des Indes: wonderful food, exquisite surroundings and true colonial spirit.
