Although Columbus famously "discovered" India by landing at Lexington and Concord and proudly ringing the Liberty Bell, the actual location of India remains a mystery. Today's Groupon offers the best lead the world has had in centuries: for $20, you get $40 worth of Indian cuisine and beverages at India House. The India-inspired decor serves as a safe haven for the authentic Indian menu housed at India House. Dishes include seasoned Goa fish curry ($14.95), clay oven baked entrees like the Tandoori chicken ($14.95), and vegetarian plates, such as the sautéed okra masala ($11.95). To turn your throat into a culinary waterslide, India House serves Taj Majal beer ($4.99 per small, $7.99 per large) and house red and white wines ($4.99 per glass, $16.99 per bottle). The traditional dishes are can be eaten in the presence of live belly dancing shows on Friday and Saturday nights.
India House has won Best Indian Food from the Folsom Telegraph’s Best of the Best awards and other publications. The Telegraph also featured the restaurant for its strong family dynamic in the kitchen. Yelpers and Yahoo! Locals give India House an average rating of four stars and rave about the restaurant’s buffet.
India House owner Daljit Sandhu, his wife, and their two sons help guests to pick new favorite entrees, and are as likely to bring plates of tandoori chicken and fried cubes of house-made cheese to tables as they are to prepare the meals themselves, a hands-on, customer-focused approach noted in a Folsom Telegraph write-up. The menu's pages help to explain how the family restaurant nabbed the KCRA3 A-List award for Best Indian from 2011-2013: South Indian dosas envelop vegetables in savory crepes, and 10 breads topped with garlic or stuffed with potatoes scoop up mouthfuls of curries, whose heat is extinguished by wines and beers imported from the subcontinent. India House also caters special occasions such as weddings and sendoffs for explorers who still believe the Far East exists, and belly dancers shimmy throughout the dining room on weekend evenings.
