What You'll Get
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 Groupon to Khazana. Choose between the following options:
- For $12, you get $24 worth of authentic North Indian cuisine and drinks during dinner.
- For $7, you get a lunch buffet of authentic North Indian cuisine (a $14.50 value).
Khazana's native New Delhi chefs construct authentic dishes that reflect the traditions of tandoor cooking, an art that involves preparing meals in a special clay oven. Prime palates for festive flavours with a delectable appetizer such as the vegetable pakora, with fresh vegetables in chickpea-flour batter coalesced under the matchmaking magic of the fryer ($5). The tandoori salmon, a Khazana specialty, seasons Atlantic salmon with a slew of freshly ground spices ($19.25), and the chicken malai paints plump pieces of chicken breast with splashes of velvety cream sauce ($17.50). Vegetarian specialties range from saag paneer, a spunky duo of spinach and cheese that entertains mouths with robust flavour and sly bedroom humour ($12), to mutter mushroom, a medley of green peas and button mushrooms in the chef's signature curry ($10.50). Palates can be refreshed between bites with a beverage selection that includes masala chai ($2.95), Kingfisher Indian beer ($6.95), and other authentic Indian beverages.
The lunch buffet is among the most extensive in the city, serving a different selection of dishes each day with frequent appearances by butter chicken, beef korma, and at least four dessert options (a $14.50 value). Khazana's spacious dining area, three fireplaces, wood furnishings, and seasonally rotating artifacts construct an upscale yet comfortable atmosphere ideal for family gatherings or testing out new satin pajamas.

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.
