If you happen to be in Sacramento and would like some excellent Indian food , the place to go is Shaz. It is not far, just in a place you would not expect a restaurant to be.
The food is excellent, both the luncheon buffets and dinner. The menu includes items not found on many Indian restaurant menus, such as the roohafza, a rose petal beverage, and gajjar ka halwa, a carrot dessert.
The atmosphere is very open. (The building was a warehouse.) The tables are well spaced and there is plenty of room for all the different dishes that will be part of your meal. Service is attentive and knowledgeable. During lunch, Bollywood plays on high screens.
Prices are very reasonable, less than $25 for a dinner with beverages, appetizers and dessert. The luncheon buffet price includes chai.
Your meal will end with anise seeds as a palate cleanser, and you will be very happy you found this place.
