We went here based on the reviews in TA and were surprised by the great feedback they have received.
This place was nothing to get excited about.
I had a prawn curry special which was more spicy than flavorful and my wife had a risotto with shrimp that she described as "institutional." The Caesar salad lacked any flavor.
On a positive side, the mushroom soup was very good as well as the bread...but BE WARNED...if you ask for more bread, they'll charge you for it. We were NOT advised this by our server....a surprise on our bill.
Speaking of our server, she was average...at best. She rattled the specials off way too fast, slow on requests and didn't advise us of the extra bread charge. The pinnacle of her below average service was when she delivered the bill and took my credit card while our table was still full of dirty dishes. Both of us were servers in previous lives and we know this is not cool!
We're new to Portland and are enjoying trying different places to eat...unfortunately this one didn't make the cut for a return visit.
By the way, the clientele was solidly in their 50's and 60's, which we are not. Not a young energetic place and no kids menu.
