Description: 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 Saturday. We invite you to join us for the East India experience.

“Best Indian Food in Portland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

More expensive than most Indian restaurants, but also more high end in terms of quality of dishes served and a quiet ambience that allows for conversation. Every dish was delicious (the grilled fish was delicious, but a bit dry). Dishes can be quite spicy, even for the mild, so if spice is not your thing, be sure to advise server to have the seriously tone the spice down. Only a few truly vegan options. Located In the heart of downtown Portland, situated behind the Library in the 800 block of SW 11th Avenue, street parking in the evenings is usually easy.

“Indian delights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

I've visited East India Co. twice in the past year, based on the recview in Portland Monthly. Wow! What tasty food!! The menu is expansive, offering a wide variety of foods that fit nearly every diet. The naan is perfect, the curries fabulous, the service attentive. And the mango cheesecake is to die for! Lightest and most fluffy cheesecake I've ever had, made me want to order a second piece :)

I had the take out and the food is not as good as a year ago. What happened? Try the deserts - mango cheesecake is the best in Portland.

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

Everything was superb here, from the service to the atmosphere to the food itself. I was tempted to go back the next day. One of the friends who was with us that night went back for lunch two days later and loved it. Although I am not gluten or dairy intolerant, this is a place where you can find lots to order if you are. They also have vegan dishes.

I ordered the Saag with Lamb and my spouse ordered the Kerala Masala with chicken. We also ordered the Naan. I think it contained rosemary. in any case, it was delicious. The next time I go I would like to order extra dishes so we have lots of leftovers the next day.
