Description: Located in West Sacramento, Pooja Indian Grill takes pride in serving the best Indian cuisine in town. Indian food is as varied and diverse as the sub-continent from which it originates. The variety in taste and flavor of Indian food is simply overpowering. Pooja Indian Grill uses only the freshest of ingredients on their authentic fare. Always fresh, the dishes are a savory delight. A delicately spiced Indian curry will tantalizingly tease your taste buds. Tandoori dishes and Chicken Tikka, made in authentic tandoori oven, are our restaurant's specialties.

I have been coming here for years. Reasonably priced, good Indian food offered here. I have never been here for the lunch buffet, but hear it is very good as well.

Always one of my favorite foods - but even more so after living in India over a year recently. I chanced on a review of Pooja while searching. "around me" yesterday. I was there when their $10 buffet opened. Amazing, extensive vegetarian spread - saag paneer, chana masala, daal makhani, mixed vegetables, to name a few. Another table held fish... More

We have going to this place for over 10 years and it never disappoints. We have been to nearly every Indian restaurant in the area and this one is best. We take all our visiting friends who love Indian food to this place and they all rave about it. We have never tried the buffet but have sampled many different... More

We ordered delivery while staying at the Embassy Suites in town. They took an hour (not a big deal). But the food was not good. We ordered palag panner - the texture was too smooth and slimy, the dish was completely flavorless. We also ordered Paneer tikka masala - it was ladden with cream and also too tangy. We got... More

West Sac is not the first thing I think of when going out for lunch or dinner. I probably would not have found Pooja Grill if not for a coupon in the Entertainment book. Now I am a regular. We have turned on several people to this fine restaurant and now they are regulars. Though in West Sac it is... More

I was the only person eating that night in but tons came for take out. I asked for super spicy and that's what I got! Ordered the Palak Paneer and kheer for dessert. Everything was good and the woman were super friendly! Would like the palak to be a little less creamy though. Good value. Will certainly go back!

Pooja Indian Grill seems to be busiest at the lunch hour for its buffet, but we love dinner there. The food is fresh, beautifully prepared and very reasonably priced. Friends who had the lassi (yoghurt drink) said they hadn't had such authentic tasting lassi anywhere outside of India. The staff is very kind and attentive. Try it!

Pooja is a place to go if you seek a soothing retreat into Indian cuisine. With both vegetarian and non-vegetarian entrees, one has quite a bit to savor in the lunch menu. I enjoy the curries, pakouras, salad, dessert, the tea...well you get the idea. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. Table service is great, and the facilities are clean.... More
