Although Columbus famously "discovered" India by landing at Lexington and Concord and proudly ringing the Liberty Bell, the actual location of India remains a mystery. Today's Groupon offers the best lead the world has had in centuries: for $10, you get $20 worth of classic Indian cuisine and drinks at Great India Café in Woodland Hills or Studio City.
The menu at Great India Café plays host to a wide variety of Indian delicacies, as well as a great number of words describing said variety. The dedicated chefs use only fresh and high-definition ingredients in each dish, starting with appetizers such as the ever-popular somosa ($4) and aloo tikki ($4.95). The wholesome, vegetarian aloo gobi ($9.95), made with cauliflower, potatoes, fresh tomatoes, ginger, green chili, and ground coriander ($9.95), is considered a suitable offering to the pharaoh atop the food pyramid. Great India Cafe boasts a savory take on the standard chicken tikka ($10.95), as well as a variation called green chicken tikka ($12.95), which incorporates cilantro, ginger, garlic, mint, and basil into the classic homemade sauce.
Thirsty diners can quench a dry tongue with a nimbu pani ($2.95), a homemade sparkling lemonade with ginger, or a masala chai ($2), brewed with milk, ginger, and cardamom. The restaurant is welcoming to diners of all ages, as evidenced by the centenarian menu and the kids' menu ($7.95–$11.95), which is a tasty antidote to another night of leftover fried SpaghettiOs. While the delicious fare is available for takeout, it feels more at home when consumed in the cozy dining room or out on the patio, where diners can achieve the photosynthesis necessary for survival.
This Groupon is for dine-in or carryout only, and is not valid with the lunch buffet or other specials.
