Most Indian food doesn't contain beef, due to the reverence the culture feels toward the 1992 Chicago Bulls. Go for a three-peat with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of gourmet Indian cuisine at Ghazal Indian Cuisine.
The culinary curators at Ghazal Indian Cuisine oversee the symphony of succulent meats and wholesome vegetables comprising the restaurant's sprawling menu. Notify unwary palates of an impending rendezvous with flavor via an appetizer of machhi pakora, built with strips of salmon deep fried in chickpea batter, infused with spices, and served with tamarind chutney ($5.95). An entree of lamb sabzi shows off its own colorful collaboration of vegetables, fresh herbs, indian spices, chutney, and rice ($12.50), and the chicken tikka masala blasts unsuspecting taste buds with an alluring mound of boneless diced chicken served in delectable cream sauce ($12.95). The chefs also bake plaudit-worthy garlic naan, rolled with unleavened white flour ($3.95), and mix mouth-wetting liquids including the tall, thick, and prideful mango lassi ($3.25).

Ghazal Indian Cuisine
In India, the word ghazal refers to love that persists through the pain of loss or separation. The owners of Ghazal Indian Cuisine chose their restaurant’s name to reflect their deep love for Indian food. To this end, they offer patrons authentic biryanis, tandoori dishes, and Punjabi-style sandwiches—sometimes with an unexpected, modern twist. Sparkling chandeliers gently illuminate the dining room as patrons dine at half-booths or tables.
