Bombay Cricket Club & Restaurant
This area draws all types. The people who crowd this street, long for eclectic flavorsthe stores that call Hawthorne District home fulfill those desires. The ever-popular fusion theme is adeptly expressed at this exotic restaurant. Choose from Indian and Mediterranean/North African menus while you enjoy cricket matches on the bar's television. Saucy and spicy, both menus provide true taste bud entertainment. The Chicken Tikka Kabob, Chicken Makhani, Prawns Coconut Curry and Lamb Shahi stand out for their fine flavor and aroma. The sweet and succulent meat is cooked in a tandoori oven. The Fatoush is a healthy appetizer. Full bar service is available.
Bombay Cricket Club was a bad experience for us. Terrible service, mediocre food that relies way too much on chilis without much depth beyond the heat. While the papadum and Naan were good, the poor service, less than delicious entrees and horrible mango margarita could not have been overcome. We ordered an eggplant curry that was a masala - no hint of curry. When we took our food to go, three entrees were together in a single container and about half of our food was gone. It is too bad that Portland does not have great Indian food, but it is better to wait until you're in a city that does than try to find it here and suffer.
Our experiences at Bombay Cricket Club continue to be fabulous. We like the spicy food, the vegetarian options (amazing eggplant), the Masala Rita, the bread selection (Zathar Naan is our favorite) and the mix of Indian and middle eastern fare. We find the owner and staff incredibly warm and friendly, the service excellent and the prices moderate but fair for the high quality of the food. We have never been disappointed and this restaurant is one of our special birthday places. Never having been to India I cannot speak about authenticity, but the food sure works for us and we eat in Indian restaurants all the time.
First of all,I have not eaten at this restaurant so I can not comment on the food.
I walked in one evening and the place was full,the host asked me if I had a reservation and I said no.I was in mid-sentence in asking him if there were any other Indian restaurants in the neighborhood that I can go to as I was visiting from out of town when he he just turned his back to me and walked away.One thing is for sure about this place,they sure do bring a whole new flavor of rude.
I have never been more disappointed. Most I have ever paid for Indian food anywhere. The Palak Paneer was the worst ever. It was lukewarm and disgusting. The place was loud, cramped, and cold. The server was indifferent and kind of spacey and unavailable. Recommendations? Nothing beats Lentil Garden in Hillsboro. You want as close to homemade as possible? Go there. Bombay was, and is, a joke.
How many South Asians do you see in there? None to almost none. South Asians (like me) don't go there - it's overpriced, mediocre, and as another reviewer said, too rich and rock-like afterwards. The service is indifferent - they are more focused on getting you in and out than taking care of you. In sum, I think it is one of the most overhyped restaurants in Portland. Go somewhere else, and spread the word so the white folks who think they're getting good Indian food can go elsewhere. Please.
Everyone raves about it- who doesn't know good Indian food. Like Jarra's for Ethopian on the Hawthorne (that place has the worst Ethiopian food ever).
I have eaten here several times and have felt sick or full of rich food afterwards. This place is, as the name says, a take on Imperial India. The service is British Indian- but the food mediocre to not very good at all.
If you want a sample of colonial culture and you don't know or care about the food- this is your place.
If you want real Indian food you have to go to The Curry Leaf on Bethany Blvd on Highway 26W.
