This is a wonderful lunch spot in downtown Portland. The chicken tikka masala is excellent. You don't need a reservation. There are very few people there.

We had a delicious meal once again at East India Co. Casual yet elegant atmosphere (ask for a curtained booth), very reasonable prices, and our server (Dani) was tremendous.

I was hesitant to write this review, because I feel that even after years in downtown Portland, this is a total secret little gem. The food is absolutely outstanding, as is the service. The prices are competitive for downtown, as well. I went here for...More

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 everyday. We invite you to join us for the East India experience.
