Good Indian in Sacramento?

  • b

I was wondering where to go for good Indian food. I have a friend that loves Indian food who is coming to visit in January.

Thanks for any suggestions.

  1. There is a South Indian restaurant at the corner of Fulton and Hurley where we ate recently that was very good (not much to look at, but food was excellent!). Its in a little strip mall. I got the recommendation from here on Chowhound, but can't for the life of me remember the name of the place (although I could drive straight to it!). Try a search through Chowhound.

        Thanks for the info. I was thinking of visiting the same place because that's the only Indian place that I ever saw mentioned on here. However, the post seemed to refer to a special order so I was wondering how the rest of the food was.

          re: Kaveri Madras (thanks for the name!): I posted and mentioned that although the buffet looked good, I would go with the that what you meant by a special order? In my opinion, going to a south Indian restaurant and not trying the Dhosa is kind of like going to an ice cream shop and ordering a other words, what's the point?

          (The Dhosa are very good there, IMO. Anyone who likes Indian food should enjoy them........)

        there is a "new" Indian restaurant on W. El Camino and Truxel -- Daboo - I think it's called. Planning to do lunch there in a day or two. Would love to know anyone else's experience.

      3. Refreshing the question: any recommendations for a good Indian restaurant in or near Sacramento? Any updates since the last post in 2004?

          I still recommend Kaveri. I work near there and eat there often for lunch. I have only had their buffet. I really like their food.

            DH has eaten at Kaveri within the last few months and still enjoyed it. FWIW.

            The best Indian place in Sacramento is Pooja Grill in West Sac. Also a very good vegetarian Indian is Udupi Palace in Rancho Cordoba.

              Gaylord India Restaurant on 14th & O is excellent. Their curries are delicious, with perfect naan, and a great tandoor oven. Plus, the restaurant is nice - especially the greenhouse area near the street.

                Sher E Punjab (Fair Oaks Blvd. at Marconi) has good Northern Indian / Pakistani food. Menu and buffet at lunch and dinner.
