Have eaten Indian food all from the east coast of this country to the west, up and down and all over. My husband and I passed through Santa Barbara on a road trip and arrived at FOI just barely before closing. The people were polite and happily allowed us to order. The samosas were delicious, as were the papadam (best ever had), the vegetable soup, and the Thali. Had to return next day for buffet...was equally delicious, highly flavorful and not too spicy. YUMM! Can't wait to go back.
Pros: Great Flavors, Great Service, Friendly Staff
Cons: Only 3 veg on buffet, Not great ambience, Sweet Lassi not best
