In 2019, Sukhdev Singh and his family opened the 5 Star Indian Cuisine Food Truck in Fallon, located at 1555 S Taylor St, in the parking lot of Oasis Bowl and Family Fun Center. After traveling from Louisiana to Fernley, Sukhdev finally decided upon settling his family and food truck in Fallon.
Sukhdev was a prominent chef in the Indian Cuisine scene in Louisiana, mastering his special take on what Indian Cuisine should be, and learning to adapt each and every dish to suit the taste and preferred levels of spice within his audience, while mastering the art of comfort food that is good for the body and soul. The health and wellness of each and every customer that visits 5 Star Indian Food Truck is the key to their success. Only organic and fresh ingredients make it into the dishes served to you.
The care that goes into each day, seven days a week, for lunch and dinner is astounding, and I was humbled by the time that was given to care for their customers. Most places around the world have lost the art of loving people through their stomachs and paying attention to small details that enhance the overall dining experience. When I walked up to order, a woman who had commuted all the way from Fernley was in line ahead of me. She was enjoying a lively conversation full of honest laughs that left me feeling like I was not in a parking lot, but rather in a neighbor’s home. I soon learned why the woman had driven all that way for a food truck lunch, as I had the pleasure of butter chicken and garlic naan.
I had a minimal wait but was brought an appetizer to my waiting car along with a mango lassi. The warm and fluffy naan along with the richest and decadent butter chicken that has ever passed my lips, and that rice, oh that rice with each perfectly cooked grain, showed me what true love was. True love is remembering customers by name and treating each customer like they are family.
Building relationships one bite at a time with tourists, service members, business owners, passers-by, and the hungry, Sukhdev has established a local following. The menu contains all of the traditional Indian favorites, such as tandoori chicken, aloo tikki, chicken tikka masala, chicken curry, aloo gobi, chicken biryani, or chicken korma to name a few. Each is made fresh to order with a special recipe and spice blend, handcrafted by Sukhdev with you in mind. They do not believe in mass-producing, pre-packaged, or premade at 5 Star Indian Food Truck. Each and every day Sukhdev is chopping, kneading, and preparing each order as is it goes out, and he does so with a smile as big as his heart.
You see, at 5 Star Indian Cuisine, it isn’t enough to serve a meal. You are welcomed into their hearts with each order and you are never forgotten. If you have not had the pleasure of visiting the Singhs at 5 Star Indian Food Truck, you are truly missing out on a one-of-a-kind experience. The next time you are struggling to decide the world’s oldest question, what do you want for dinner tonight, call ahead to Sukhdev at (509) 730-1825 and order over the phone, or just stop in at the location on 1555 S Taylor St, Fallon, NV 89406 and enjoy a dining experience like nothing you have ever had before.
