Hi Bombay has become our first choice for Indian food in Portland. As others have mentioned, the food is excellent. It's a small place and the atmosphere is pleasant enough. The service is not particularly discourteous, but not particularly friendly either. The cost is very...More

Not sure why there's bad reviews for this place. My husband and I have gotten food here at least 5 times in the past year or two, and we've always had good experiences, both with take out and eating in. Incredible chicken tikka masala, delicious...More
