From high brow to street food, Portland has some stellar spots for your tikka and tandoor cravings. Whether you want a full sit-down experience in a jewel-toned, white-table cloth eatery or a go-to takeout spot, these restaurants are sure bets in the City of Roses.
From the Indian equivalent of wood fire—a charcoal-fueled tandoor oven—comes Portland’s best Indian food. But the real find at East India Co is the seasonally rotating, four-course tasting menu showcasing the flavors of Indian holidays, from the bright colors of Holi in the spring to traditional street foods on Mother’s Day.
Former Lovely Hula Hands chef Troy MacLarty has put together a menu inspired by India’s diverse food regions and street food culture in a sweet space filled with bright colors and Indian icons.
