East India Co Grill & Bar offers a delectable journey and redefines the perception of Indian food. The romantic interior combines seductive Indian richness and sparkle, with dramatic lighting, and 1800"s sepia photographs. Subtle complex marinades using time honored Indian grilling methods created by seasoned master chefs reflect the food trends in today's India. The menu remains true to classic Indian recipes but is served with verve and style. All of this along with our hospitality and innovative signature cocktails makes for a unique dining experience. The restaurant is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Portland on 11th avenue between Yamhill and Taylor. We are open for lunch, happy hour, and dinner Monday through Sunday. We invite you to join us for the East India experience.

    Very sad place compared to our last visit 4 yrs ago. We were excited to return to what we felt would be a high end fine ding restaurant experience. However, the reality was quite different. One server, no bartender. Fortunately not busy, but on a Friday night, certainly surprising. Photos show white table cloths, which was the case 4 yrs ago, but no longer. Food was mediocre at best. Can not recommend this establishment.

    Our group of 6 ate pre-theatre at 5pm. We were the first patrons to arrive. We were greeted warmly and offered a food menu. The beverage menu was only accessed by QR code. Some cocktails were not available. The food arrived hot and spicy. As the restaurant filled up, the service slowed down. We enjoyed every dish, and bread. I especially liked the somosa appetizer and mixed Tandoor Grill @ $14.

    I have been here four times and the three previous times have all been wonderful, both in terms of food and service. This time, I made a reservation for Saturday at dinner time, expecting there to be a good amount of patrons and that a reservation would guarantee us a table. The restaurant was understaffed for the evening, which I sympathize with greatly because I also work in food service. However, they had accepted more reservations and walk-ins than they could serve with good hospitality for the amount of staff they had. We waited an additional half hour all told after our reservation time to be seated and then have our order taken. (we had even looked up the online menu so we could have our order ready for the convenience of the server and speed of service). While we were still waiting to be seated, a door dash driver came in and waited twenty minutes to pick up a delivery. I fill door dash orders at work and we do not accept new orders when we are too busy with walk-ins, and we do not mark orders as ready for pickup if they are not ready. Drivers get paid per delivery. The conduct was therefore unprofessional and inconsiderate to both the driver and the customer who placed the order. Finally, after we had finished eating, our server asked if we wanted a box but then never brought one, and it put us in the awkward position of trying to flag down a server to ask for another one, which we felt bad about since it was a busy night. I do really sympathize with the staff because I know what it’s like to be extremely busy, overworked, and trying to make the best of a difficult night. However, they bit off more than they could chew. I got the sense that they were trying to take as many customers as possible for maximum revenue rather than hold tables for reservations that had already been made, while also not being honest about how long the wait would be.

    There was a wide choice of Indian dishes. We had an appetizer and shared two dishes with rice and Naan. All the dishes were excellent, and food arrived very quickly. The waiters were exceptional - some of the friendliest and attentive waiters that I've had the pleasure of ordering from. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

    We go back for the food, the food is really good. The service is slow and the last two times we have gone the order has come out incorrect from what we ordered. They made it right last time by providing the ordered dish as a to go. The website advertises happy hour until 7 and this last visit I planned a group meeting there based on that, the website is incorrect, they do not offer happy hour. Food is worth a visit though.

    It was absolutely great back 10-12 years ago. Food was not the best at all this time. It was overall quite disappointing. We selected this place to celebrate by father’s 84th birthday. Server was kind and did his best for being the only one for several tables. That’s was it.

    The food and service were excellent. I had vindaloo chicken - spicy as described on the menu. My wife had a paneer dumpling dish. Both terrific. Samosa appetizer was so great that you should not miss it. Great ambiance and very friendly staff. And a full bar (not just beer and wine).

    We had a really enjoyable dinner by sampling a whole variety of dishes. Our favorite dishes were the Samosa Chaat, spiced potatoes in crispy crust as an appetizer and the Tandoori chicken wings. For our entrees we had Tandoori lamb and a creamy eggplant, tomato and pea dish that was the star of the night. The service was a slow because they had 3 large groups in the restaurant, but they tried their best. I loved the spicy, interesting food and would go back next time I visit Portland.

    Service is so disappointing. We ended up walking out because they hadn't prepared for our reservation, took 10 minutes to set a table. Even though it wasn't busy inside we waited another 10 minutes without anyone even asking what we wanted to drink. No apologies. No concern at all. The food is very good. Management either needs to pay better or take better care of their hiring practices.
