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.”

“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.”
