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.
Unique chat preparation, very delicious, and the paneer Tikka. Awesome for vegetarians.
Overall, very nice place, good service and very good food. I recommend it!
Attractive restaurant with a menu that is smaller than most Indian restaurants. They clearly concentrate on making high quality dishes. It's one of the few Indian restaurants in Portland that will take a reservation.
Great dinner. Really enjoyed all the food. We had four people, eat family style, everything was fantastic.
Nice bar as well with unique cocktails.
The food here is excellent. However, during our last two visits there were large, noisy groups also dining. With the open (non-absorbent) ceilings it is difficult to have a private conversation when there is shouting and loud guffaws in the room.
Great food. Definitely recommend lamb vindalu. Nice atmosphere.
The food was so delicious and and the staff is wonderful. We’ve eaten their with and without children, enjoying it both times
Delicious food and fun experience.
Chicken Tandoori not very interesting but the Rogan Josh was excellent.
I enjoyed the dinner. It was nice to have a dinner conversation and to be able to do a family style meal. Service was attentive and the food came out timely. However, I was not overwhelmed with the food and felt it was a bit over priced. I will definitely try dinner or lunch again based on my experience.
The food was amazing and the server did a fantastic job of explaining everything on the menu since this was our first time there. The chicken wings are their best kept secret.
One of the best Indian restaurants I've found in Portland. The flavors were terrific, and the chef adds his own touch to several dishes that distinguish East India from other restaurants in a very positive way.
Excellent, very best Indian in NW
Please take "noise level" off your list. Some people prefer a quiet restaurant, and others prefer a noisy restaurant, so the ranking on this can not be on the same scale.
We have come here several times and always find the good, the service and the value the best for Indian food in the Portland area.
Great service, great curry!
Very good food, bold flavors. Staff was very nice. good place.
Overall, a lackluster, disappointing experience.
Service: not friendly. We were asked for our order, then hushed because the server hadn't retrieved a writing surface from pocket. Never checked to see how our food was after it was delivered.
Drinks: coconut-lime concoction was watery and had an off-putting flavor. Mango lassi was fine, but from a box.
Food: samosa appetizer was reasonably good but a bit cold when delivered. A korma that was ordered with mild heat was overly hot, as it was almost as spicy as the vindaloo (which was quite hot, though our server warned of this). The entrees themselves were of good quality and preparation, but some may find the level of spice in the vindaloo to be quite excessive, and the korma clearly should have been more mild (it can be ordered in mild, medium or hot spice levels).
Price: high, but not out of par for the area.
Server had a real bad attitude
