The talented chefs at Dakshin Indian Bistro dish out tantalizing plates of authentic Indian fare. The appetizer menu promises delightful starters in the rich tradition of Indian street fare, such as the prawn mirchiwala, a piquant sauté of shrimp, chilies, onions, and curry, or the crispy samosa, a portable pastry stuffed with potato and green peas. Like locker combinations or launch codes, the delicious entrees beg to be shared, with poultry- or veggie-based treats including the lentil and tomato dahl tadka or the saucy Hyderabadi chicken curry.
Desserts such as mango cheesecake or gulab jamoon—fried-cheese dumplings flanked by vanilla ice cream—sweetly cap epicurean excursions. To quench thirsts or rinse uvulas for further feasting, tasty beverages mix tropical flavors, from masala chai tea to mango lassi, a sweet and creamy combination of mango flavor and yogurt. Though lamb and shrimp dishes are not included with today’s Groupon, diners can upgrade their meal for an additional $4.
