They say you should have breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper. And at La Porte des Indes’ Sunday brunch buffet, you do exactly that!
La Porte des Indes is an Indian restaurant located just behind Marble Arch station, housed in a former Edwardian ballroom and spanning across two floors. It boasts French-colonial influences with beautiful antique Indian artifacts and a display of exotic plants and flowers all around the light and airy space.
The brunch buffet spreads itself across the two floors and the idea is that you start from the bottom and make your way up. The ground floor takes you through an array of starters – kebabs, salads, mini-rolls and all the sweet-sour-spicy Indian street food goodness!
Once satisfied with your first course of nibbles, you then go to the second floor and dig in to the mains – curries, daals, naans, spiced rice and Indian pickles to tickle your taste buds! There are separate sections for non-veg and veg curries.
Finally, you make your way back down (in hopes of walking off even the tiniest bit of everything you’ve just gobbled down!) and have a taste of the range of desserts on offer – sweet, milky, cardamom-cinnamon infusions!
Their infamous all-you-can-eat buffet takes place every Sunday and is priced at £35 per head. Located on 32 Bryanston Street, the closest tube station is Marble Arch. You can find out more information here.
You will not go home hungry after spending a Sunday afternoon here! The only thing worth doing after is walking down to Hyde Park and spending your afternoon dozing off by the Serpentine River.
