The butter sauce will blow your mind! Hubby and I were in Portland for the weekend and are eating low carb/high fat. We’d had our fill of lobster and had a craving for Indian. Based on a few online reviews we decided to give Hi...More

Ordered Chicken Masala and Saag Paneer. The Masala was very flavorful and the heat just right (for my taste) but was a bit disappointed in the all dark meat offering. The Saag was very good and the heat level was tolerable. Few Indian restaurants can...More

Average food served in a restaurant that simply does not look clean. Dirty old roof. Dirty toilet doors. A very dated interior. Even if the food was excellent (and it wasn't) you'd worry about the cleanliness of the place.

My wife and I were in the mood for Indian food and we went into the restaurant cold, not knowing anything about it. We were there right at the lunchtime opening and were seated right away by a very courteous host. I have to say...More
