Preethi Indian Cuisine may be a new restaurant in downtown Davis, but the Immareddy family has been serving “home-style” Indian food in the Sacramento area for more than 20 years.
All of the family’s dishes are made by Krishna and Nanda Immareddy, who started their business shortly after they married in India.
Nanda and Krishna’s kids, Ramya and Lalith, help out with the family business on weekends when the restaurant is busy.
Ramya says almost all of their dishes are made in a south Indian style. Try masala dosa, a pancake stuffed with potatoes, fried onions and spices. Or Idli, a popular south Indian cake consisting of black lentils and rice, and served with chutney.
Whether it’s the spices, or the dishes, everything is made fresh in the family’s kitchen.
The paneer (Indian cheese) is handmade by Krishna; Nanda makes the tandoori-style naan, along with chicken tiki. But this is just a preview of the many other homemade creations that Preethi Indian Cuisine offers.
The family also values the enjoyment of their customers just as much as the quality of their dishes.
“Making a profit is not nearly as important as making the customers happy,” Nanda says. “If they’re not satisfied with something at Preethi, we simply don’t charge them.”
Coming soon to Preethi Indian Cuisine is a once-a-week vegan special dinner buffet with more than 25 items from which to choose.
