East India PDX is our go to place for family birthdays, anniversaries and other special celebrations. The food is not 100% authentic in taste, but is delicious all the same. What I like best is that the taste, spice level and quantity of food has been pretty consistent and we have been regulars for over 4 years.
The restaurant staff are attentive and pleasant for the most part. I will say here that I think it is largely because we are regulars her and have built a rapport with the staff. In the early years there have been some rude staff who fortunately aren't to be seen anymore.
If you're vegetarian, I highly recommend their Paneer Tikka appetizer and Kerala Vegetable. If you get Renee to wait on your table, consider yourself lucky!
Unless your going during the week, it makes sense to call ahead and make a reservation.
