India House in Folsom

The first time I was in graduate school I had an Indian roommate from Kerala state (the only place in history that voted for a Communist government). In that year I learned to love Indian food. As noted in an earlier post we had a couple of good restaurants in DC - we tried Taj Majal and also liked Gaylord - which was run by two punjabi brothers. Over the years we have been disappointed in Indian restaurants in Sacramento. Most are a bit grungy and the food is not very authentic. But tonight we discovered a place that is actually pretty good. It is called India House and is off the Bidwell exit in an area of a new shopping center called Broadstone - there is a BJ brewery and a Marconi Grille.

India house has an extensive dinner menu and the food is great. One of my favorite dishes has lamb and spinach - often it is called Lamb Saag. Very good. We also had some spinach pakoras and samoosas. The service was excellent and the ambience was very well done. Service was unhurried but attentive. It is well worth getting there. There is a luncheon buffet and a menu at dinner.
