About Bollywood Theater
From his very first trip to India, Chef and owner Troy MacLarty was taken by how immersed street food is into the culture of India. On March 7, 2012 he opened his first Bollywood Theater restaurant on Northeast Alberta Street, to bring Portland the food he found during his travels on the subcontinent. Everything from the restaurant decor, steel cups and plates, to the food and drinks evoke the culinary experiences people might have in Mumbai. MacLarty’s love of flavor and training at Chez Panisse is evident in Bollywood Theater’s local produce sourcing, local wine and beer selections, fresh preparations, authentic dishes and seasonal menu specials. Everything the kitchen produces is made from scratch. Bollywood’s second location opened on Southeast Division Street, Portland’s hot restaurant row, in February of 2014 with more seating, a large outdoor patio and a 4,000 square foot kitchen. The Division St. location also features an Indian grocery market that sells Indian cooking staples like Basmati rice, curry leaves, fresh ghee, an extensive selection of Indian spices, and fresh made paneer cheese, made on site six times a week. Bollywood Theater has been lauded by Sunset, Tasting Table, Bon Appétit, Kinfolk, the Oregonian and Portland Monthly, as well as a number of international publications. Bollywood Theater was recently featured in a Washington Post feature on “America’s Best Food Cities,” and voted the #1 Indian restaurant in Portland by readers of PortlandFoodandDrink.com. Bollywood Theater consistently ranks among the city’s best restaurants and “cheap eats.” Follow Bollywood Theater on Facebook, Twitter @BWTPDX and Instagram @BollywoodTheaterPDX
