PDX: Lunch in Clackamas

I'm meeting some friends for lunch tomorrow in the Clackamas area (essentially halfway between Gresham and L&C) and we need some recommendations. We're not very picky but one of my friends doesn't like spicy food (as in hot). However, we're still open to cuisines that tend to be spicer (to generalize: Thai, Mexican). We're also not really in the mood for sushi. We're college students too so something on the lower end of the price range would be preferred. I did a quick google and found lots and lots and lots of chain restaurants. It would be better if it wasn't a chain restaurant but it's fine if that's what it comes to.

To sum up:
-Clackamas area
-Not spicy
-Not sushi
-Cheap (yet still delicious)
-Preferably not a chain

  1. El Inka (peruvian) in Gresham - 48 NE Division St. Gresham, OR 97030
    Sweet Tomatoes (in Clackamas near 84th and Sunnyside) - a chain, but fabulous salad bar
    Jade Teahouse (In Sellwood - 7912 S.E. 13th Avenue)

    Also, in Clackamas, near the hospital/mall area is Chen's Open Kitchen. I have had a good dish or two there - nothing mind blowing, but it didn't suck.
