The Indian subcontinent is a giant piece of naan that drifted slowly through the ocean before slamming its flavors into Eurasia. Align your face's tectonic plates to give the continent a nibble in return with today's deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of traditional Indian cuisine at Bollywood Bistro, next to the Cinemark 12 on Bethel Road. Bollywood Bistro serves up Mumbai-inspired fare for dinner Monday–Saturday, as well as a tasty lunch buffet every day, and an all-day buffet on Sunday.
Bollywood Bistro's exciting cinema-themed menu keeps taste buds on the edge of their chin-seat from trailer to grand finale. Start your palate's passage to India with an order of delicately spiced and fried white-meat chicken pakores ($5 for five pieces) or vegetable samosas, which stuff seasoned potatoes and peas into crispy pastry ($2). Bollywood Bistro offers nine types of Indian breads including classic naan ($2), as well as stuffed varieties such as aloo naan, which comes stuffed with potatoes, ginger spices, and herbs ($2.50)––any of which dutifully accompanies an entrée until they both meet their fate in the jaws of a hungry patron.
To cast the main star in a Bellywood film, try one of the bistro's tandoori specialties ($10–$16) such as the chicken malai tikka ($13), serving up an expert blend of boneless white-meat chicken seasoned with yogurt, mayo, garlic, ginger, onions, and spices. Other specialty dishes are arranged by protein, making shopping for savories easy. Warm your belly with a serving of lamb curry ($11) or spicy chicken chilli ($12), or steer clear of carnivorousness by opting for dal makhani, a buttery stew of black lentils, kidney beans, onions, tomatoes, ginger, and garlic ($9).
When your stomach is suitably satiated, your belly button will resemble the smile of the Cheshire Cat—indicating it's time to start feeding your peepers. Gaze around the room, soaking in Bollywood Bistro's walls of movie posters, or head next door to catch a flick while you digest. Between the traditional eats and visual treats of the Bollywood Bistro experience, your culinary escape will grant you the physical and mental preparedness required to beat Sitar Hero on hard mode.
