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 $10, you get $20 worth of Indian cuisine at Gandhi Restaurant on Central Avenue.
With a plethora of dishes to choose from, Gandhi Restaurant pumps edibles from the heart-shaped country into bell-shaped bellies each day of the week. Patrons can rev their palates with starters such as the thin bean wafers, known as papadum ($1), succulent samosa bites packed with potatoes and peas ($3.50), or ka-chori, a treat only meant to be eaten, not described ($4.50). Hot and fresh out the oven, tandoori goodies such as chicken marinated in yogurt and mild spicy sauce ($10.95); sheek kebab, a mildly spiced minced lamb ($10.95); classic naan ($1.95); and the palindrome's chubbier, potato- and spice-stuffed sibling, aloo naan ($2.95) melt cold appetites and iced plates. Dwellers and devourers of the underwater world can mourn over fallen friends with seafood dishes such as the goan or salmon curry cooked in a coconut and cream sauce ($14.95) and shrimp jalfrezi, heated to eating temperature with veggies in a somewhat-spicy sauce ($14.95).
For more than 16 years, Gandhi Restaurant's experienced chefs skillfully prepare Indian cuisine to order, tailoring spice levels to each diner's preferences. They pack potatoes and peas into succulent samosa pastries, simmer curries, and roast marinated meats and fresh breads in a clay tandoor. For dessert, customers can order the kulfi, a housemade Indian ice cream.
