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 Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Indian fare and drinks at Bombay Palace.
Bombay Palace's menu charts a course through northern India's flavours with rice dishes, curries, and vegetarian plates prepared with vibrant ingredients. Instead of taking an emergency course on fire-eating, diners can warm up mouths with a sizzling tandoori grill appetizer, crackling and popping with chicken, prawns, seekh kebabs, chicken tikka, and fresh naan ($22.99). For a main, diners can fork and knife their way through Bombay Palace's signature butter chicken ($15.99) or cottage cheese and veggie kofta ($12.99). To recede the tides of sweet cravings, guests can moon over homemade brownies and ice cream ($4.99) or kheer, a classic rice pudding ($4.99). Between the traditional eats and visual treats of Bombay Palace, the culinary escape grants diners the physical and mental preparedness required to beat Sitar Hero on Hard mode.
Plush red carpeting, colorful stained-glass lamps, and artwork inspired by the subcontinent lend a calming and elegant air to Bombay Palace's dining room. Inside the kitchen, however, things are a bit more vibrant as Executive Chef Sanjiv Malhotra and his skilled crew work hard to create and plate Indian culinary traditions. Chef Malhotra takes pride in his signature dish of king prawns bathed in a saffron sauce, but he also nimbly whips up regional specialties such as saag paneer from the eastern side of the country and spicy vindaloos from Goa. In an effort to satisfy any diet, his menu also includes a handful of vegan dishes built from potatoes, cauliflower, or eggplants, and he takes care to indicate which entrees are gluten-free or contain nuts.
