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.

Excellent food and service. I highly recommend East India Co.. We have been looking for a quality restaurant after the one we always had gone to closed due to the owners retiring. Give this a try, you'll like it.

East India has a relatively limited menu - but what they serve is very good. The balance of flavors, fresh ingredients. Without specifying a spiciness level, it is served with just the right amount of spice - not too little or too much. Service was attentive, yet respectful of patrons. I enjoy this restaurant for both lunch and dinner.

We enjoy the wide variety of excellent Indian food at this restaurant. We always get great service. The decor is nice, especially if you get on of the semi-circular booths. The music track adds to the ambience. Prices are very reasonable considering that it is in downtown Portland.

Good menu. Good food but not forehead smacking. I'd go again. The mixed Tandoori plate was a great value at $14.

Everything was great! It was our second time there as it was just as good as last time. Every dish we ordered was very good. The restaurant design is cool too and the service was very good. Every one on our 9 person party was delighted!

East India Co. continues to be our go-to restaurant whenever we want to impress out-of-town guests or to host friends for a QUIET meal with great food. The waitstaff are attentive and pleasant, you can hear people across the table because the place is actually QUIET enough (a very rare situation), and the food is impeccable. We always order the makhani paneer, the lamb biryani, and the samosas (as the appetizer). It's all good, but compared to other Indian restaurants those dishes stand out, as do their chai (not pre-sweetened) and their naan. One request to the restaurant: bring back the salt lassi!

Excellent food and service. Drinks are a little expensive. Food is more spicy than I expected but not overwhelming. Excellent value other than the drinks.

All the food was good, cocktails were good, food came fast once it was ordered but the overall service was slow. Took 2.5 hours for a 5 person dinner. If I am looking for Indian cuisine in the future, I would certainly come back.
