I visited India House on a previous trip to PDX, and enjoyed it; it wasn't spectacular but good enough to warrant a return visit, or so I thought. No longer. The papadums were burnt in spots, the saag aloo in the lamb thali had only one piece of potato in it, and the rest was simply not very flavorful. The... More

We stopped here for lunch on a recent trip to Portland. It was pretty quiet for a busy weekend, but more parties came in as the lunch hour wore on. We sampled just a couple of dishes, and they were very flavourful. Tandoori chicken, rice and Naan were plenty for two persons. Would definitely visit again, perhaps in the evening... More

The lunch experience was great, fast, friendly service and very tasty food. The wait staff was professional without being stuffy. The booth was very comfortable. The food was exactly what our party of four expected - spicy and clean with a healthy feel.

First off, I am not Indian but I've had lots of Indian food at private homes and Indian restaurants. The mango lassi was a combination of milk and an awful imitation of the mango fruit. It was not thick and tasty but was thin and bland The paratha and naan were crunchy and overcooked. They were fairly tasteless also. The... More

Do not take American friends who have never had Indian food to this place! Terrible food! Naan was crispy. I don't even know what the paratha was. It was awful! Mango lassi tasted like it was made with milk and cheap mango concentrate. Chef should be totally embarrassed!

We had a wonderful family meal at India House. Our wairt, Johnny, was exceptional and memorable with his detailed explanation of the menu, recommendations, and timing. We will definitely be returning to try the lunch buffet.

We were actually looking for a different restaurant but decided to give this place a try. It smelled great as soon as we walked in and it was warm and toasty. We got pretty wet and soggy from walking around. The food was pretty good, nothing stuck out as exceptional, but were rarely get to eat indian food lately, so... More

My husband and I were exploring downtown Portland on a layover on our way home. On the way to Powell's Bookstore we saw the India House. We both love Indian food, so we decided to stop in there for their lunch buffet. The buffet is very good. More meat dishes than vegetarian which I found different than most Indian buffets.... More

This is a favorite for dinner. I eat lunch here weekly and choose the buffer. It's good, fast. and a good value but it's the dinner menu that shines for me. I like the Cher's work with spices and choosing ingredients. The owner is a gracious host and the staff reflects that. He is from Pakistan and I think that... More
