The rich flavors of curry recall the verdant landscapes of the Indian subcontinent, while the succulent taste of lamb recalls the ripe fruits of its kebab trees. Take in a taste of India with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Indian fare and drinks at Sangam Restaurant, in Arlington.
The blend of spices that defines Pan-Indian cuisine is on delectable display throughout Sangam Restaurant's multitudinous menu, filled with fresh fruits, savory meats, and satisfying lentils. Pair selections of 12 Indian-style breads (from $2) with first-course fare such as the aloo papri chat, a mouth-enticing blend of garbanzo peas, potatoes, savory crisps, taramind chutney, and rock salt ($4.50), or the pan-fried shami kebab, comprised of ground lamb, lentils, onions, and spices ($7.95). Extensive vegetarian-friendly selections (up to $9.95) delight eaters of meatless fare, while reactionary epicureans can set traps to ensnare traditional Indian fare, such as the madras chicken curry ($12.95) or the spicy lamb vindaloo ($14.95), both served lounging atop a decadent bed of basmati rice. A daily lunch buffet ($11.95) awaits daytime diners with tongue cravings that are torn between options due to stamp-licking accidents.
Sangam Restaurant's extensive wine list provides liquid accompaniment, with selections such as Lindeman's chardonnay ($6.95 a glass) and Prince Michel Restaurant reserve cabernet ($6.95 a glass), each available by the glass or the bottle. A Native American flute player delights auditory taste buds on Wednesday nights from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., helping patrons overcome the midweek blues and fears of foot tapping in public.
- My gal and I have been coming here for several years, and this place is simply great. We like to take our out of town visitors here simply because of how surprised they are at how great the food is considering how humble the exterior of the place looks. – Josh K., Yelp, 06/15/10
- I almost didn't go into this place because of the poor curb appeal however I was glad I did. Very tasty and rich dishes at a fair price, I will be back on my next trip. – payam s., Yelp, 02/07/10
