As a culinary palindrome, naan tastes the same backward as it does forward, like the bananab or a Toyota. Take a bite in every direction with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of Indian fare at Currylicious in Oakland.

Currylicious specializes in spicy Indian curries, tandoori, and naan served in a vibrant, relaxed atmosphere. Slap your mouth awake with a golden-brown pair of vegetable samosas ($2.99) followed by one of the restaurant's titular curries. Herbivores cheer over the cheesy palak paneer ($6.99) and baigan bharta, baked eggplant cooked with onion, tomato, and Indian spices ($6.49). Unleash a celebratory cluck when feasting on chicken tikka masala ($7.49) or chicken achari, succulent cutlets of chicken cooked with Indian pickle-flavored sauce ($7.49). Like a meaty heat-seeking missile, the lamb vindaloo ($8.99) will hunt down spice-hounds and surprise them with a powerful punch of vindaloo sauce so piquant it will make diners cry tears of capsaicin extract joy. Sandwich-sized mouths can help themselves to a portable chicken seekh kabaab wrap, which is loaded with onion, tomato, tamarind sauce, and mint chutney enveloped by warm naan ($5.99).

Currylicious' vibrant dining room sings with bright orange arched walls, robust teal and yellow accents, and Indian artistic flourishes, such as ornate textiles and imported lighting fixtures. Outdoorsy types can relax with a hearty plate of food on the spacious patio, decorated with strings of white lights festive enough to make every day seem like its Lincoln’s birthday.

  • Ordered the garlic naan with an eggplant and a fish curry. Everything was excellent, entirely flavorful and spicy. – Amber B., 2/8/11

Currylicious

The walls at Currylicious exude the same orange and yellow hues as saffron and turmeric, which flavor its traditional Indian dishes. Appetizers include hearty veggie samosas and the kachumar salad, an intermingling of fresh garden veggies, herbs, and lime juice. Entrees such as chicken shahi korma and lamb karahi cool down spice with infusions of yogurt sauce and side helpings of naan. During pleasant weather, diners can sit outside, where they take in Oakland’s scenic landscape, or season their meals with crushed sunshine.
