What You'll Get
Welcome to Groupon, London! For our inaugural deal, $8 gets you $20 worth of Indian cuisine and drinks at Curry's, located at 118 Wellington Road. Since this is everyone's first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
How Groupon Works
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of London: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theatre, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won't find anywhere else. We call it "collective buying power." If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (15 for today's deal) sign up by the end of the day, you'll be emailed a gift certificate the next morning. You can print your Groupons or redeem them with our mobile app. Use them whenever you want until the deal expires—today's expires in six months. If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won't be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
The Indian subcontinent is a giant piece of naan that drifted slowly through the ocean before slamming its flavours into Eurasia. Align your face's tectonic plates to give the continent a nibble in return with today's deal: for $8, you get $20 worth of traditional Indian cuisine and drinks at Curry's, located on Wellington Road.
The dinner and lunch menus at Curry's catalogue an eclectic array of authentic Indian dishes. Ignite ingestion with a warming bowl of cumin tomato soup ($4.25 for a small), a flavourful liquid laced with robust garlic and cumin, or opt for the bhell puri ($7.95), a mishmash of potato, tomato, onions, fresh coriander, puffed rice and basen sticks accompanied, like all hunger-fighting superheroes, by a tangy tamarind sauce. The apricot chicken curry ($11.95) soothes stomach souls with chunks of tender chicken sautéed in an aromatic apricot curry, and the lamb vindaloo ($9.95) places pieces of lamb in a curry spiced to your tongue's and tear ducts' liking. Herbivoyeurs can spy their dinner companions enjoying the moong lentil curry ($8.95), in which green lentils vibe beautifully with ginger and spices, or the matar paneer ($8.95), featuring homemade Indian cheese cooked with green peas before achieving equilibrium in a curry of tomato and cumin.
Friendly staff and authentic Indian cuisine combine to create a warm, casual atmosphere akin to wearing a onesie at a barbecue. Between the traditional eats and visual treats of Curry's, your culinary escape will grant you the physical and mental preparedness required to beat Sitar Hero on Hard Mode.
