Sharing a meal with friends is an activity that dates back to the Renaissance, when Romans would communally feast, then donate any leftover ketchup packets to Michelangelo so he could finish painting the Sistine Chapel ceiling. Participate in a historic process with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get an Indian meal for two at Cafe Taj (up to a $58.43 total value). Meals include the following:

  • One appetizer (up to a $11.95 value)
  • Two entrees (up to a $17.95 value each)
  • Two desserts (up to a $5.29 value each)<p>

The culinary craftsmen at Cafe Taj oversee a colorful menu stocked with traditional Indian eats such as kebabs, fragrant grilled meats, and vegetarian specialties. To start, the combination appetizer platter (an $8.95 value) lures hands into a finger-friendly assortment of chicken and veggie pakoras flanked by samosas and lamb kebabs. After warming up taste buds, dining duos can dash tooth-first into butter chicken (a $14.95 value), outfitted in a tomato sauce flavored with nine Indian spices. Ragon josh (a $15.95 value) combines fresh chunks of leg of lamb with creamy yogurt curry and a blend of warm spices, and shahi paneer (an $11.95 value) mutes meatless cravings with farmer’s cheese, nuts, and raisins. Feasts reach a nectarous culmination as chefs dish out exotic desserts such as gulab jamun (a $5.29 value), which reduces conversation to systematic high-fiving with crisply fried dumplings dipped in honey syrup.

7Spice

If 7Spice’s large stone fountain could talk, the rippling waters would still keep mum, because the restaurant’s authentic Indian cuisine can speak for itself. Warm naan and whole-wheat roti sop up creamy curry sauce from main dishes, and the black tables are loaded down with charcoal-roasted tandoori dishes for pairing with both wine and beer from a fully stocked bar. After sating sugar cravings with rose- and cardamom-scented sweets, patrons can question servers about their catering services or use the dining room’s Romanesque columns to kick off a backflip in honor of an evening well spent.
