Just mention that you would also like to visit them to better understand how they can help you and
get the address,further just do a google earth search on them and see if they are located in a proper
office space, there are usually "techno parks" that provide sorta infrastructure and office space.

Check if they have the resources or the capability to do what they are saying and can produce
the expected results.Also their mode of delivery and demo of sample projects or case studies etc.
You can further ask/insistent for three client reference in the US and client contact persons
you can call and ask about their performance and delivery.Also you can ask for updated resumes of the
developers in their company and do fact checking.

Usually the sales guy may not know much technical stuff so he would say ya we can do that
and this , you can even say you would like to set up a interview with their delivery team
and try to understand how they would architecture a solution for you based on on a sample RFP
and how many months it would take them and what is the deployment model...etc...you can
get a judgement from the responses and conclude
Caveat Emptor.
