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

Having been to Indian restaurants in several US cities in the past 30 years, I can say that no place matches this one and I've been coming here for more than 20 years. The only food that is comparable is that which I've had in India itself. Every dish is so flavorful, you can't go wrong with ordering anything although... 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

From the perspective of long-time customers of Indian food restaurants and vegans eating healthy food only, this is the BEST Indian cuisine in the greater Sacramento area (including Folsom). This is a family run business, and service is quick and friendly. No matter how busy they are, we always seem to be served faster than we expect. During our last... More

Its one of the most authentic north Indian food restaurant in Sacramento. I love the options available. Naan served here are the best in the town.

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!
