We visited Ruchi for dinner before seeing a show at 3 Stages. The restaurant is lovely and the service was quite prompt. We ordered the doma which is a giant crepe made from potatoe and lentil flour filled with spicy cauliflower. Very tasty and enough for 4 people. We also order the shrimp malabar... read more

I tried them all. They offer more chutneys than the rest, and if you like spicy, they have options (not Frank's hot sauce like another well known joint in town). Items change a lot so you never know. The naan is perfect. Service is very good. Unlike another place, they don't give you the hard sell at checkout to go... More

We eat here from time to time and it’s OK. There are better places and there are worse. I enjoy goat curry, and they generally don’t do a good job with that. They don’t do a better than average job with anything, as far as I can tell. If you are in the neighborhood, it beats fast food. Good, not... More

My husband and I went to have an Indian lunch. Went to Ruchi, even with the bad reviews. We have been eating Indian food all over the world. It is not the best but the buffet had a good selection of Indian food and the service was great. The food was good and hot not like some buffets. Sat at... More

My family and I went to Ruchi for my parents wedding anniversary. First of all, the service was horrible!! nobody attended our table to take our order or even give us water to drink. Secondly, we ordered chili paneer for appetizer and it was not fresh at all! The onions were black and had a horrible smell to it. Lastly,... More

All the dishes have the same. Been there a couple of times and the taste for a specific dish was different every time. Service is OK. One we saw the cook standing in front of the main door talking on his cell phone and scratching his crotch with his hands inside his pants! We left in a hurry. We avoid... More

We recently had chicken biryani, we found the taste to have detoriated from before.The chicken 65 had too much color and meat was not cooked well, was over cooked. Chilly chicken had too much flour and over fried.

This is our favorite Indian restaurant in Folsom, CA. The food is consistently good, well seasoned and hot. The service is fast and efficient. Our favorite dish id the "butter chicken" and we have never been disappointed.

They have a large menu. Some of the dishes are awful - the description says that it contains coconut milk and the dish is cooked with cream!! The vegetarian dished are over cooked. The are mushy. The non veg is OK but nothing to write home about.
