Best Indian Food in Portland! – My best friend is Indian and I love her mother's cooking. This is the best I have found in Portland. The staff is always friendly and the food is always fresh. We get take-out about once a week from New Delhi. I highly recommend the Chicken Tikka Masala.
Seriously? – This restaurant is mediocre at best, I'm not sure if nobody posting has ever tasted good Indian food or more likely the restaurant management is "stuffing the ballot box" - I really can't imagine otherwise how there could be 23 positive reviews with 4 or 5 stars prior to me. I tried the lunch buffet for $8.95 and even at this price point I have gotten good Indian buffets elsewhere but this really reminded me of what fast food Indian would probably taste like. The lamb vindaloo honestly tasted like a marginal American beef stew and the curry-based dishes were slightly better but still mostly tasteless and uninspired at best. I am absolutely fine with the lack of heat in most/all dishes but PLEASE give me some flavor. Even the Naan was only marginal - I consider Naan to be like a good pizza crust, it should be very good on its own and even better when paired with other flavors. Neither delivers here.
Maybe the strange strip-mall location on Barbur threw me off or maybe I happened to go on a REALLY bad day but based on the mediocrity of every dish I am pretty certain there is no reason to return here again. It's a shame after such good expectations.
Great food, decent atmosphere – The food and service is always great, staff always courteous, atmosphere is clean and comfortable. It's a pleasure to have such good Indian cuisine close by, usually with no wait, and easy parking.
Don't let the outside deceive you! – I read all the great reviews on Citysearch, so my son and I decided to try it, since he lives nearby and we both love Indian food. When we pulled up, I looked at him with the " I don't know look." But we remembered other reviewers stating not to be deceived by the outward appearance, and went in. Boy, what a treat. From the outside it looks like a cheap kinda sleazy restaurant / bar, but once you step inside you immediately feel at ease in a very comfortable place. The food and service were both exceptional. We ate much more than we meant to and rolled out of there rubbing our tummies with delight. We will definitely be back.
Excellent Food and Service – My husband and I have gone here on our lunch hour for a few years and we can't tell you when we've had better service. The food is excellent on the buffet, always stocked up, clean and tasty!
Out this world Indian cuisine! – Hey, if you love Indian food you have to try the New Delhi Restaurant. My wife and I love Indian cuisine and have tried every restaurant in Portland and enjoy this one the best. The food is absolutely fabulous. The service is excellent and prices are reasonable. The strip mall location is a little funky, but parking is not a problem.
Wonderful food and service – My husband and I went here based on the reviews on this site. We were extrememly happy with the food, service, portions and prices. We ordered the Chicken Tikka Masala and the Lamb Saag. Both dishes were wonderful. We asked for medium spice and that's exactly what we got. Though I prefer my food on the mild side, the flavor was spicy without burning my mouth. The Naan was flavorful and freshly baked. The server recommended a perfect red wine by the glass to go with my food and it was an excellent suggestion. I highly recommed this restaurant to those that value high quality dishes and wonderful service. We can't wait to go back and taste our way through their menu.
The buffet was amazing – Go for the buffet, which means go for lunch. It's pretty cheap for a great meal. I actually only signed up for this just to write a review on this restaurant. The service is great, family owned. Very good Indian food. Not romantic or super high class, but kind simply elegant nonetheless.
Most authentic and delicious Indian food ! – I went to this Indian restraunt on Barbur and 30th on my friend's recommendation and I must say the food was just fabulous........
I have been to many Indian restraunts around Portland like Swagat, India House, Curry leaf but when it comes to authentic tasty Indian food, this Restraunt I think wins the race by far.
I would highly recommend Indian food lovers to try this flavorsome Indian food at "New Delhi" but keep in mind that the family who run the place is going to be taking there first vacation home after 7 years from JULY 15th through AUGUST 25th so you should go either before or after those dates and you wont be dissappointed I promise :)
buffet price $7.95, well worth it – After reading the reviews for this restuarant, i decided to drive my convertible on this nice bright sunny day from Tualatin to Barbur Blvd and experience the indian cuisine. Boy! let me tell you the reviews were soo right! The buffet is very affordable and at $7.95 all you can eat...there is alot to choose from. I had the Chicken, rice, pita flat bread and some veggies. I must say, i drove past it on accident because it is kind of hidden, but overall, excellene variety of dishes, cvery clean and the people are really nice and will answer any questions you have if you unfamiliar with the items for lunch.
