Here’s a delicious and exotic idea to help you spice up your 2013 Valentine’s Day date with your favorite person. Travel along the Spice Route for an evening and reserve a table for two at Vindalho between February 14 and February 17.

The coupon will work as always – take 20% off your table’s ticket and use it as often as you like. It is valid from February 15 until April 15. Print it out and bring it with you the next time you come in. Or, capture it on your smart phone and simply show it to your server. Unfortunately, the coupon is not valid on Valentine’s Day.

We’re thrilled! Portland Food and Drink conducted a reader survey on Indian Food in Portland and Vindalho won!
From the posting:
“Indian food is incredibly varied and complex. It is also one of my favorite foods, and I’ve been wishing we had more choices in Portland. The recently opened Bollywood Theater has helped fill the void with good options at very affordable prices, jumping to #3 on the list after only being in business for a few months. Vindalho and East India Company have swapped; I’m guessing prices are playing a part here. Perhaps reflecting my experience, Channai Masala has dropped, even being overtaken by the Swagat chain. I don’t know anything about India Grill or Namaste – perhaps some of you can fill me in.”
Here’s what a few of our most recent diners have said about their experience. Thanks for joining us! And thanks for your kind words about Vindalho!
A favorite that I have missed over the past year. Returning to the high quality food and service was a treat. Excellent dinner!

“We walked in to Vindalho last night after giving up on getting seated at another restaurant, and Vindalho treated us right. We were seated immediately, but didn’t see our waitress for a few minutes–long enough to wonder about. She totally made up for it however, by being quite cheery and helpful–and gave us free chocolate pistachio cake at the end of the meal–even though we hadn’t mentioned the wait. Dinner was great; I had chicken curry, and my fiance had Kashmiri Paneer. With a salad and a bottle of wine, dinner was $80-ish, so it wasn’t a cheap night out, but we were well-satisfied.”
It’s just one week to Valentine’s Day. We’d like to make your evening memorable, romantic and flavorful. Have a look at our specials and come join us for dinner! Reserve your table here>>
