Although Columbus famously "discovered" India by landing at Lexington and Concord and proudly ringing the Liberty Bell, the actual location of India remains a mystery. Today's Groupon offers the best lead the world has had in centuries: for $15, you get $30 worth of flavorful fare at Angeethi Authentic Indian Cuisine. Choose between two locations:
Angeethi serves an extensive menu of traditional Indian cuisine with warm spices blended fresh daily, pleasing palates in welcoming surroundings. Dishes such as the murg tikka masala, boneless chicken baked in a clay oven and sautéed in curry sauce, deliciously muffle grumbling bellies ($15), and vegetarian-friendly karahi paneer, homemade cheese cubes cooked with vegetables, delight flavor-deprived taste buds normally resigned to bark smeared with peanut butter ($14). With live music Friday and Saturday nights, and plates that can be adjusted to suit the most spice sensitive of guests, a visit to Angeethi makes for a mouth-treating adventure without packing a conversation-hampering spyglass for your tongue.
Though the Leesburg location has yet to receive many online reviews, more than 110 Yelpers give the Herndon location of Angeethi Authentic Indian Cuisine a four-star average, and TripAdvisors give it an average of 3.5 owl eyes:
- I don't even know how to phrase my absolute delight with Angeethi. Tonight was my first visit, and it was well worth having to convince my… fiance to go. – Azar M., Yelp
- This place is a real gem for both food and service. The food here is incredibly prepared with flavourful ingredients and beautifully presented by friendly staff. – Tigger1018, TripAdvisor
Silk Authentic Indian Cuisine
A charcoal clay oven roars to life every morning in Silk’s kitchen in preparation for a day full of roasting meats and vegetables and baking fresh breads including roti and naan. The authentic tandoor prepares a menu rich in traditional flavors derived from spices imported from all over India. A dash of pure saffron, wild black cardamom, and cinnamon enhances platters of long-grain basmati rice, a standard side dish that enhances lamb, seafood, chicken, and vegetarian dishes alike. Waiters shuttle chosen plates out to a regal dining room full of carved, throne-like dining chairs, gilded statues of deities, and napkins fancifully folded into fork-size saris.
