My New Neighbors

Just when the world seems a little bleak and dreary and you least expect it, something wonderful happens.

A new Indian restaurant, Gandhi Mahal, has moved into my neighborhood. With a take out menu :-)

The word "love" does not fully encompass my feelings towards Indian food. I currently drive two suburbs out to eat it on a fairly regular basis. I adore it. If I were on death row and they asked me what I wanted for my last meal, it would be tikka masala and nan....and a diet Coke.

So, last night I placed an order for take out beef Delhi Tikka Masala and Aloo Nan from my new neighbors. Let me just say, OMG.

I'm the same way with Thai cuisine. There is a great Thai place near my work, which is about 30 miles from my house, so my Thai was usually for lunch. Then I heard from not one, but two of my co-workers that the best Thai place in town is in NE Portland. Hey, I live in NE Portland, where is it exactly? It turns out that a wildly popular Thai place is exactly 1.5 blocks from my house! Now I get it for lunch and dinner. Mmmmmm..... ;-)

Wow...I love it when the buzz begins;-)I am Christopher, and I designed Gandhi Mahal, as well as do cross cultural business consulting for them. I am designing the new menu as I write this.

Katie at City Pages sent me your link, and thanks for the ravin' review!

Stop in and introduce yourself to Ruhel, or myself, and ask for our 25% off Grand opening coupon!

I am biased of course, but the spice of our chef Baisop Ali is perhaps the best spice I have ever had in Indian food. I love to watch him cook--handfulls of spice go into big huge pots of every dish base, and the lunch buffet--WOW--AYCE $9.95 every day!

Thanks for the plug!

Joe - That is my exact situation. Used to eat it only for lunch from work....now anytime :-)

Christopher - The meal I had last night was wonderful. Wonderful. When I received your comment I was online IMing w/ a friend....telling him we needed to try the lunch buffet. Tell them they need a take-out pick-up only parking spot in front :-) I'll definitely be a regular.

I LOVE Indian food. My favorite is the Saak Paneer... and the naan. OH, and I LOVE the chai you get at Indian restaurants... spicy and not too sweet. MMMMM!

Oh, that's right next to one of my favorite sushi places, Midori. Now comes the real dilemma - sushi or Indian, sushi or Indian. Glad to see another highly recommended restaurant in our neck of the woods!

That's one of the best parts of living in a real neighborhood. Enjoy!

A parking spot out
front..hmmm..great idea, if we can just get the sidewalk construction to clear out soon;-)
We had so much frsh new sidewalk being poured ther ethe other day that our 11:30-3 p.m. AYCE $9.95 buffet was all but abandoned--so we invited the construction crew in for eats on the house!

Stucco: A small heads up for you-- behind the restaurant we have a bit of parking that is often unused. Caution: It is 'employees only' by default, but to my knowledge, I have never seen anyone towed from there, and it should be good for 5 or 10 minutes if you are running inside for take-out!

Mitzi: of COURSE it's Indian food
;-) but seriously--Midori's, ahhhh: Midori's fresh fish, comfortable and original style is unmatched anywhere in town for 'cozy'!
