Favorite restaurant!

We have been going to India House for years and this is probably our favorite Portland restaurant. The owner, Tony, is very involved in the business and truly cares about the quality of the food and service. We have taken countless friends here to try Indian food for their first time and we have created many fans! I have had these guys cater everything from my wedding to my 40th birthday party and they are amazing! If you don't like spicy food, this may not be your place, even though EVERYTHING can be served mild...even our 9 year old enjoys it!

Staff told a lie and served left over food

I am visiting Portland this week with my family. Today June 12-2011, after a hike to Beacon Rock, we were quite late for lunch per se. In spite of the hunger, we decided not to go to a fast food restaurant along the way. Instead, we wanted to eat at a nice desi (south asian) restaurant and hence ended up at India House in Down Town Portland. The sign board said that they are ""OPEN"" even though it was already 3:30pm. A couple was eating at the restaurant. Still, my wife asked if they are serving food. The answer was yes, sure. We asked if they serve Halal meat. The waiter said, let me ask the Chef. She went inside and came back, telling us that there are two chicken dishes and one lamb dish which are made of Halal meat. I wondered how could it be that they get a portion of the chicken and lamb from Halal sources while most of the dishes are prepared from regular meat. But I still took their word for it. When I tried to order a chicken dish, the waiter told that's not Halal. It turned out that I can only order Chicken Tikka Masala and Lamb Kabob which I did. The chicken tikka masala actually turned out to be a ""butter chicken curry"" with a pathetic taste of lot of butter curry with few chicken pieces dipped inside. Kabob was ok. We also ordered side dishes of rice for our kids. The overall food quality was so so. We came out and were strolling down the nearby streets when my daughter threw it out everything she has eaten at the India House. We rushed back to our hotel so she can relax. Upon reaching the room, she threw it out again. After sometime we tried giving her Gatorade to replenish her fluids. She threw it out few times we tried. Later I went to Pharmacy and brought off-the-shelf anti-vomiting/stomach relief medicine for her. Couple of times we gave that to her and she threw it out. Now she is in the bed without anything in her stomach and I am writing this review. I am also feeling a burning stomach but may be it is holding on due to stronger immunity. I highly suspect that the food served to us was actually the left over food from lunch and that caused this food-poising to my daughter. They lied to us that they serve Halal meat and then pin-pointed to us to the only dishes they can serve us from the left over food telling us that those are the only Halal dishes. I was naive...may be confused and hungry....that I did not ask them to show any kind of halal authenticity. Although it is a common practice at many Halal (desi) restaurants to go by verbal assurances.

In any case, based on my experience, I would highly recommend NOT to go to this restaurant. Be mindful about your health and the health of your loved ones, especially when you are visiting out of town.

Some of the best I have had

Being a fan of Indian food, I have had the opportunity to try Indian restaurants from across the country and the UK. I find the India House in Portland to be one of my favorites. Their food is authentic and the taste is superb. I have to add that for those on this forum who ?found the food too spicy,? it is in reality prepared just right--unless you are accustom to the cuisine at Applebee?s. This restaurant indeed has a loyal following.

From what I could taste of it the food was decent

Food was way too freaking spicy. I asked for medium, it was beyond the spiciest dish I have ever had, so spicy I could hardly eat my meal. The rice didnt come with the entree, and the naan was served in very small portions. I will definitely go to Swagat next time, better food, better value.

Thoroughly average

I've eaten at India House twice and been underwhelmed both times. It's not that it's bad exactly - the food is decent and the service has been fine. However, the atmosphere feels crowded (the tables are close together), and the quality of the food just isn't that great for the price. I think East India Co. (which is nearby) is a better value with much better food and atmosphere.

Pay A Lot Eat a Little

India House offers more than the 'usual suspects' at every other Indian restaurants such as curry or vindaloo. OTOH you pay (a lot) for everything. A small portion of naan was almost $7. You pay extra for very dry tasteless rice and the main dishes were served in small pans.

OTOH the service was excellent and the food (what there was of it) was very tasty.

The Max rattles the walls and floors adding to the ambiance....yikes! Not a place for a relaxing or romantic dinner.

rice NOT included....

So when i moved here from the midwest i thought there would be loads of great indian food to be found, but it seemed i was wring, i did not like any of the places i had been. but i tried this placed and liked it, didnt love it, but liked it. the food that is...the prices are usually a couple bucks more per entree than other indian restaurants, and you have to pay for rice...which is strange, i have been to lots of indian restaurants, never paid for rice. i have been here several times, decided to stop going, i dont feel i get anything extra for the extra money, including free rice or a nice staff, or speedy service....i would, however, recommed a little place called new delhi indian restaurant on barbur, good food good prices, nice people and fast.

No Naansense?

I looked for an email to the actual restaurant, but as I could not find one, I resort to this to voice my opinion.

Overall, I enjoy this place to eat. It perhaps is not the best Indian food in the world, or even the city, but it has some great dishes and I've always been pleased when eating here.

However, this evening we had $40.00 worth of take-out and much to our surprise when we opened up our food... had one slice of Naan. ONE. for two people. It was not a large flat piece either. It was a small, squished slice awkwardly cut in two that a Costco bread sample would put to shame. It was ""an order of naan"" which cost extra, and it was extremely disappointing to not have it to go with our food.

That's really my only gripe here.
We didn't get Naan.

poor excuse for indian food

I ordered Indian salad, spicy lamb vindaloo, and naan. The Indian salad ($3.50) tasted like a Mexian salsa on a bad day. The tiny serving of so-called lamb vindaloo was bland, didn't taste like lamb, and was swimming in oily red sauce ($12.95). The naan was cold, dry, and hard $2. This lunch cost over $18 and I left hungry and not happy.

Price $$$ and little amount

I placed a take out order which consisted of two curry dishes and a side of rice. I picked up three small containers equivalent to 3 small chinese food boxes and was charged almost $30. Good food but not worth the price.
