Is "nothing" an acceptable answer? Probably your best option is Bombay Cricket Club on Hawthorne and about 20th. It's not cheap, though, if that's what you're looking for. Entrees will be around $14 or $15, probably.
If you got a limited selection of K2 Kebab's dishes -- the channa masala, the kebabs, especially the seekh kebab, the samosas, perhaps a couple other things -- you could do quite well. But a large portion of their menu is terrible. It's feast or famine there.
Vindalho is another option, though it's a bit chichi and not usually what people are looking for when they have a specific request like yours.
Ach - why my fellow Portlanders feel that the Bombay Cricket Club is an acceptable (let alone outstanding) Indian place is beyond me. Take it from an Indian, the restaurant has rude service and pretty poor fare for the price - somehow my stomach gets screwed up each time I eat there - I suspect excessive amounts of oil in the food.
Portland has a shortage of good Indian food sadly. Vindalho is fun for "nouvelle Indian" I suppose. But, overall, I can't make a solid recommendation to you. You might have to look to Beaverton - where most Indians live (that's where Intel is) - for the real deal...
This was from 2006. Vindalho didn't exist then. (Neither did Tandoor Indian Kitchen, Indish, East India, etc, etc, though they were looking for something on the east side.) If anyone knows a good Indian restaurant on the east side, I'd love to hear about it. Vindalho is the only one I'll go to, but it's not your typical take-out/buffet curry joint.
