Farouk's House of India
Close your eyes as you dine and you can almost hear the trumpeting of elephants and the cries of exotic birds. Farouk's is just that authentic. It is the oldest and one of the best Indian restaurants in the city. Located in Carytown , it is convenient to shopping, bars and the Byrd , Richmond's palatial movie theater. Dark and romantic, it is a great place to have private conversations with someone special. The menu features traditional Indian food, including favorites like Tandoori Chicken and exotic curries.
I am from India and moved to Richmond this past summer. This restaurant is an utter disgrace. The food was atrocious. For people wanting something resembling authentic or even decent Indian food, please do not go to this restaurant. The owners are nice enough, but the food is an insult to anyone from the Subcontinent
The food is authentic Punjabi (north Indian) cuisine. If you order from the menu it is much better than the buffet. I think they make the buffet a bit more to the liking of Americans. The buffet is okay though for a quick bite at a reasonable price. Try the lamb kadai, chapati, and kulfi and you won't be disappointed. I'm not sure why the other people's reviews were bad, but I can tell you the food is much better than Curry House. The service is better because I get seated right away and refills of water without asking. Plus the prices are the same as any other Indian restaurant. If you want a nicer ambience and so-so food go to Curry House. If you want good food and don't mind a smaller restaurant go to Farouks.
This was a fantastic place to go. It had great food and the service was awesome! It is the best Indian Restaurant in the World. I'm not sure how you guys could dislike it so much. I would definately reccommend it. It was definately worth the time and money to go there. It's awesome
