The lamb and goat are curry and the chicken are either buttered or tandoori. There's also a condiment bar for your favorite... read more

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

One of the best Indian if not the best in Sacramento area. This is. Indian people know to visit this place. Most Indian food is all you can as is this one. This is a great value for lunch. It is good place to try it for the first time. Staff is fairly quick to greet and direct us to... More

Well, the food is really great, comparable to the best we had in England and Scotland. However, when you walk in it's like you have been transformed to the late 1970s. Rugs are clean, but outdated. Walls and ceiling need a paint job.

I really like the variety of food selection. I live in the south area of Sacramento. But, make the drive to W Sacramento pretty regularly to enjoy Pooja's hospitality!

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
