My favorite Indian food in Portland!

I wish I lived closer because I can't get enough of their wonderful food. Their lunch special is enough for two, but I never share! It's too good! This is by far my favorite Indian food in Portland, and my favorite food cart too! I am not a vegetarian, but I don't miss the meat when I eat here. It's just so good and generous, there's no room for meat anyway. Try the mattar paneer with the home made naan and a cup of chai. It's addictive! I can't wait any longer. I'm going there tomorrow!

The Food at India Chaat House Sucks.

Use to be the best way back when. Now it sucks.
I am not there for the cart. I am there for the FOOD. And which ever I like better I will eat.

And I choice Bombay Chaat House.

That is all I will say.

Bombay Chaat House is the OLD India Chaat House

The India Chaat house SOLD. Yep it is true, after talking to Daljit Singh. He said he sold India Chaat house to a Pakistani guy name Cheema or Mike as he calls him self. Mike may say Daljit is on vacation to every customer such as my self, But its his word against Daljit's. India Chaat House is Turned to a Pakistani. Indian FOOD or is it?

Where did Daljit go you would ask? Daljit is to busy enjoying his new 22 year old Wife. After getting a divorce from Avtar and having it be official, Daljit was married to a 22 years old. Trust me, I was at his wedding. That is where he said the business is sold.

best Indian food in town

Vegetarian and delicious. The lunch special, at 5 bucks for 5 (predetermined) items, is a great deal. It's all I need to eat for an entire day. This is BY FAR the best food cart in town, and the best cheap Indian food period. (For expensive Indian, go to Plainfield's Mayur). I eat and cook tons of Indian food and this is the best. Try the Samosa Chaat (a little snack-like-thing), the lunch special, the malai kofta, and the paneer dishes. YUMMY. Also, request hot sauce.

Tasty, authentic veggie Punjabi food

I went to school around here and my friends and I had to have gone here at least once (usually at least twice) a week. I'd order the aloo kulcha and a mango lassi for a light, extra-cheap lunch, or the lunch special, but only if i wanted something leftover for dinner. Portions are huge. the naan (and its variants) is the best in portland, hands down. Good entrees and really interesting options on the chaat menu. Good drinks and rice pudding, too!

Good food and quantity

They serve tasty food... my favorite is Chana Batura. But, sometimes when it is cold, they will not be able to serve this. Still they have other tasty items like Shahi Panneer.
A very good place for a take out.
Their $5 lunch is quite good and has very good portions.
And they are not open in the evenings and weekends.

This is the best Indian food I have had in town. The Shahi Paneer is to die for, and the naan is cooked in a tandoori oven right there in the cart! All vegetarian and wonderfully nice family that run it. One of my very favorite places to eat. Super cheap prices and huge portions.

Update: August 2005:
I just wanted to mention that I still go here all the time, and have become vegan since I wrote my review. I was very sad I couldn't have navraten koorma anymore - but now they offer any menu option veganized! They almost always have soymilk to replace cream, but are often out of tofu to replace paneer. So still my fave. Yay for India Chaat House! P.S. they have opened a sit down restaurant in Keizer near Salem but I haven't made it out there yet. Give them business!!!
