India Grill Restaurant Review: India Grill’s setting is a large part of its pleasure. The restaurant is housed on the upstairs floor of a vintage Portland home, painted in bright colors and filled with funky décor. The outdoor deck is lovely on warm, sunny days. An extensive menu covers most Indian standards, including an inexpensive buffet at lunch. Best bets include vegetable samosas, pakoras, palak paneer (the paneer, Indian cheese, is homemade), aloo gobi (spiced cauliflower and potatoes), tandoori kebabs, lamb vindaloo, and a tasty array of naans and parathas. Vegetarians will find many options. Those who like their Indian food with extra heat must remember to tell the server to crank up the volume. For beverages, consider a refreshing mango lassi or a robust imported Indian beer.
