Hills and mountains are formed by vast underground food deposits, which, over time, stretch the landscape into soft mounds of untapped edibility. Dig into the bounty of Indian environments with today’s deal: for $12, you get $24 worth of authentic North Indian cuisine and drinks at Khazana, located on 107 Street.
Khazana's menu reflects the traditions of Tandoor cooking, an art that involves preparing meals within a special clay oven. Prime palates with a delectable appetizer, such as the vegetable pakora, with fresh vegetables and chickpea flour batter coalesced under the matchmaking magic of the fryer ($5). The tandoori salmon, a Khazana specialty, seasons cubes of Atlantic salmon with a slew of freshly ground spices ($19.25), and the chicken malai paints plump pieces of chicken breast with Pollock-like splashes of velvety cream sauce ($17.50). The Peshawari kebab pushes forth flavourful cubes of lamb ($18.50), and butter chicken emerges from the clay pots mildly spiced and dancing in a dress of fresh tomatoes, garlic paste, and ginger ($15.25). Vegetarian specialties include saag paneer, starring spinach and cottage cheese ($12), and mutter mushroom, the chef's signature curry, enhanced with green peas and button mushrooms ($10.50).
An ornate, spacious dining area, wood furnishings, and intricate wall tapestries construct an upscale yet comfortable atmosphere, ideal for family gatherings or testing out satin pajamas. Upon entry, the khazana, an opulent treasure chest, greets customers with its golden smile and shining eyes.
Hailing from India, Khazana's chefs build a procession of traditional Northern Indian cuisine, often firing their dishes in a clay tandoor oven. They assemble a menu of regional beef, lamb, vegetarian, and seafood entrees infused with authentic spices, as well as a lunchtime buffet brimming with more than 20 sample-ready items. Glasses overflow with drinks such as imported and local beers, wines, and cocktails. Nonalcoholic drinks abound as well, in the form of herbal and chai teas and lassi, a popular yogourt drink packed with more cultures than a model U.N.
Khazana's name translates to "treasure" in English, and staffers imbue their restaurant's spiced dishes and rustic decor with greater royalty than a hug from a lion. Diners sit at thick bare-wood tables surrounded by decorative Indian tapestries, vases, and tile art. A central open fireplace warms guests with crackling flames emerging from a paved stone pit.
