By Mike Hazlip–
Folsom Palace Asian Cuisine & Bar is planning to open a third restaurant in Citrus Heights, taking up a spot recently occupied by a pizza franchise on Sunrise Boulevard.

Folsom Palace currently has locations in Folsom and El Dorado Hills, and the city announced in a newsletter last month that third location is “coming soon” to 5450 Sunrise Blvd., in the Sunrise MarketPlace business improvement district.

A spokesperson for the restaurant could not be reached Thursday, but Kathilynn Carpenter, executive director of the district, confirmed the restaurant is in the permitting stage, with an opening date not yet set. Business incorporation documents were also filed last month for “Folsom Palace Sunrise Inc,” with an address of 5450 Sunrise Blvd, Suite E.

The suite was formerly occupied by PizzaRev, which closed down several months ago. Adjacent restaurants in the same retail center are Dos Coyotes, Nations Giant Hamburgers, and Menchie’s frozen yogurt.

Folsom Palace has an average four-star rating on Yelp, with several hundred reviews. The restaurant’s menu describes entrees with “low sodium, less oil, and no MSG.” Diners can expect entrees such as mu shu pork, curry beef or chicken, and various seafood offerings. Vegetable and tofu entrees are also listed on the menu. The business has been in the food and restaurant industry for over 20 years, according to the company’s website.

Folsom Palace’s dine-in menu shows prices ranging from about $10 for appetizers to just over $20 for some entrees, with most meals priced between $13 and $16.

A previous report from The Sentinel shows Pizza Rev was one of the first occupants after Alta Sunrise Retail Center was remodeled in 2018. Property owner, Cordano Company, created an outside dining plaza by reducing the front face of the building.

The new architecture brought the structure up to date from it’s previous 1970s strip mall aesthetic. Prior to the remodel, the building was home to “Organize It” and a sports bar.
