Making food from scratch typically requires advance preparation, adherence to a recipe, and your third and final genie wish. Save the third wish for more wishes with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of authentic Indian cuisine at Café Nirvana in Pineville.
Café Nirvana's menu boasts southern Indian comestibles ranging from flavorful seafood specialties to hearty vegetarian delights, enticing diners to nosh on authentic eats surrounded by the restaurant's comfortable, modern décor. Diners warm up with a tandoor oven special, such as the lamb Boti kebab ($16), steeped in yogurt and spices, or whip out a compass and navigate to southern India's chicken Tikka Dosa ($12), Indian-style pancakes stuffed with tandoori chicken, onions, peppers, and spices. Herbivores can dig into the Dal Makhani ($12), which stars protein-packed black lentils and red beans alongside a palatable cast of spices. A dish of Meen Kozhambu ($16) sets the succulent fish of the day afloat in a pool of tamarind, garlic, and spicy sauce, and a deeply aromatic platter of Nirvana quails ($17) introduces taste buds to the delicate flavor of marinated woodland poultry grilled tandoor-oven style, the mere scent of which causes nearby fast-food nuggets to drown themselves in sweet 'n' sour sauce in shame.
The kitchen staff at Cafe Nirvana fuses together southern and northern Indian specialties, from tandoor chicken tikka cooked in a traditional clay overn to cottage cheese simmered in spicy sauce. The menu changes regularly, and it features vegetarian options.
