I had several errands to run in Appleton so I visited Trip Advisor to find something different for lunch. As luck would have it, I had a stop a couple of blocks from Sai Ram and had read a few reviews that made up my mind. The restaurant is pleasant to the eye inside with wonderful smells emulating from the kitchen. My server explained the menu clearly and helped me decide on my selections. The home made tomato soup was my first choice and is the best I have ever had. Next came the Lunch combo and garlic naan. I have tried Indian cuisine before but this was absolutely delicious and the flavors were quite appealing. Can't wait to run errands in Appleton again!

Another traditional indian restaurant with combination of north & south indian cusine servings! Very good, attentive, and fast service. The place is well decorated with some very good indian paintings.
Details about each and every dish are explained with the spice level. Ask for the chilli pokara starter. They are excellent but very spicy and hot! They have a good collection of wines to serve with food. The best part was the fish curry - served with catch of the day Salmon fish in indian curry. It tasted very nice and went well with naan and tandoori rotis. Each curry is served with steaming white rice and no need to order them separately. Both mutton and chicken dishes are not Halal but I understand from my colleagues they were good.

I really enjoy the food at Sai Ram in Appleton. My girlfriend and I go into the restaurant fairly often and have enjoyed our meals every time. It has been a pleasure getting to know the staff and the atmosphere inside the restaurant is great. We usually get the mixed pakora and she'll get the Makhani and I the chicken masala. We also split a bottle of the Tamari malbec. It's wonderful, I love it there! We've gotton to know our waiter, Shavan and it's always a fun time!

We always go at lunchtime, and enjoy their lunch specials (11 am to 2 pm). You can pick any 2 entrees (small but filling), which is served with rice and a soup or salad -- for $9.50. I've been eating vegan recently, and there were tasty options available! I always end up spending more though, because I want naan and their aloo gobi (very tasty!).

The first time I ordered my food and it was too spicey. So the young waiter (patient and always smiling!) took it back and had a fresh entree (with less kick) back in no time. I was impressed!

I've never been disappointed with my dining here, and enjoy it whenever I'm in the area.

Sai Ram is a family-owned business that has quite a following in the Fox Cities area. I have eaten here numerous times and have appreciated the authentic cuisine and attentive service. The lighting is low enough to be relaxing and no matter how crowded it is, it never seems noisy.
Everything is reasonably priced and most items can be ordered separately so you can mix and match different things.

The menu is quite detailed including spiciness levels for the dishes as well as what spices go into them; very helpful for those wanting to try something new or unfamiliar with Indian food. The attentive staff are happy to assist with questions and recommendations, and adjusting the amount of spice or accommodating food allergies is not a problem. Our extremely nice server, Shavan, even looked up the website for one of the wines on the list on a tablet, and brought it to our table to verify that the wine didn't contain something that my friend was allergic to. Very much appreciated - that is the kind of care that has contributed to the following for this popular restaurant.

There is a range of vegetarian and vegan options as well as a variety of curry and tandoori entrees. There is also a wide range of appetizers, desserts, traditional drinks like mango lassi, and a children's menu. The wine list is varied and reasonably priced. In addition to a number of popular names you'll also find some more eclectic choices.

I highly recommend skipping the chains and familiar restaurants and treating yourself to the experience of eating at Sai Ram. Equally enjoyable with friends, on a date, or with your family.
