About Us


The finest destination for Indian cuisine with a difference.

Literally meaning Gateway to India, the inspiration behind La Portes Des Indes reflects the cuisine of the Gallic influenced dishes representative of Pondicherry, a former French colony in India. As Executive Chef of the La Porte des Indes group since 1996, Mehernosh Mody’s successful tenure comes from many months spent in Pondicherry where he fully immersed himself in the traditional French-Creole communities and researched guarded recipes from French, Tamil and Creole families.

Located on the ground floor of The Address Dubai Mall, La Portes Des Indes Dubai is within easy distance of the DIFC and Downtown Dubai as well as enjoying pedestrian access from within the Dubai Mall itself. The restaurant enjoys a contemporary setting featuring high ceilings and a minimal, sleek design aesthetic that perfectly compliment the quality of the food and beverage offering.

The restaurant was designed by M. Bourton, the Brussels-based head designer of the Blue Elephant group, who has designed over 20 of the world’s most iconic restaurants. La Porte des Indes Dubai brings together fine dining, private dining, lounges and bars to create a destination for Dubai’s residents and guests.
