“Our new go-to Indian place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

There's another Indian restaurant down the street that was our favorite for years until we found something fried among the pakora that shouldn't have been. Luckily we gave India House another try after having eaten there a couple of years back and not been too impressed. Have been twice recently and the food has been excellent, every bit as good as our former favorite. The host/owner(?) is most gracious and even when short-staffed as it was last night the service was acceptable. This is where we'll eat whenever we dine out in Folsom.

“Happy wife happy life”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

This wife is happy! I picked this restaurant as our destination tonight and the food was really good, nicely presented and full of spices n flavor. We were asked our heat tolerance for spice and also heard the same stories as most of the guests here surely do but he was a charming man. The belly dancer appeared and if there were pillows and couches for a more authentic feel it would have been more enjoyable. In other words the restaurant was too Americanized. The soda/ice machine was making a awful noise and the people who were sitting closest to it moved. If you can overlook the lack of ambiance you will enjoy a terrific meal. We had the India house special for two and brought plenty home. The Mango icecream is yummy too!

“Average but overrated! better options elsewhere ...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012 via mobile

+decent menu
+relatively clean place
+a limited bar carrying Sula wines
- shoddy service, especially at dinner times. 1 hr waits is a norm, and no one checks on you.
- tiny tables and cramped spaces
- food is hit or miss. Hit would be 7/10.

“Powerful and flavorful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012 via mobile

What an interesting place, I got a History lesson from the owner on serious subjects from Christopher Columbus, to Indian spices, to having a happy wife means a happy life.

If nothing else the food was really good, and the entertainment from the owner was exceptional
