Excellent Indian Food!

We always have an excellent meal when we go to Pooja's. Our son visited India and he said the food there in India tasted just like the food in West Sacramento at Pooja's!

first let me say I go here at least a couple times a month for the lunch buffet and 98 percent of the time I am quite satisfied. However the recently introduced Friday and Sat. night dinner buffets are about 6 dollars higher, which I get but basically the food is almost exactly the same as lunch. Maybe one different... More

This place is amazing. Naan, curries, samosas, all amazing. The curries aren't watery and thin, but thick and rich. We've tried 5 different curries so far and have been impressed with all of them. Enough said. Just try this place. I've eaten at Indian restaurants all over the states and the UK. And this is one of the best.

I had heard great things about this restaurant and went twice to sample the buffet. Arguably the buffet is not the best place to be in a restaurant especially when unattended and letting people have free rein in serving themselves. But.. The variety on the buffet was quite good. The food was a little greasier than I liked it but... More

Pooja Indian Grill's lunch buffet has many selections of vegetarian and non-vegetarian fare. Their selections of meat dishes are my favorite: lamb, GOAT,chicken and fish. The lamb and goat are curry and the chicken are either buttered or tandoori. There's also a condiment bar for your favorite dips. And, of course, mango ice cream for dessert.

I have tried many Indian buffets in different cities across many states. This is one of the best when in comes to selection of menu and pricing. Their menu items are very authentic which covers wide variety - from fish, chicken, lamb and goat. Some of the authentic non-veg dishes are - chicken tandoori, punjabi butter chicken, goat curry, lamb... More
