Though India and Indiana are roughly the same word, their cuisine offerings are worlds apart. Find out the difference two letters makes with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Indian cuisine at Mehfil, a regally elegant restaurant located in Redmond.
Launch a subcontinental flavor jaunt with a look at the menu and an order of kheema samosas, savory pastries filled with spiced ground lamb ($7). Mehfil's garlic naan flatbread ($3.50) pairs perfectly with paneer sagwala, a happy, herbivore-friendly marriage of Indian cottage cheese and savory spinach curry ($13). The Northern veggie dish of aloo gobi gives potatoes and cauliflower a relaxing soak in Indian spices ($12), and chicken tikka lavishes tender slices of chicken with a spiced yogurt marinade before treating them to a tanning session in the tandoor oven ($14). Tongues of steel can take the flaming-mouth challenge, attempting to cross a rainbow of peppers and finish an entire order of phall curry to enter Phallhalla. Hotter than vindaloo, phall is a British-Indian curry dish so spicy that it's wanted for arson in no fewer than 23 countries—kill it all and get a free beer (with proof of age) and your photo on the commemorative wall of triumph. Or take a more sensible approach to thirst quenching by spending some time tippling at the bar.
Mehfil's 20-foot ceilings, chandeliers, and royal portraiture form an impressively impassive backdrop for nights of derring-do or calm, intimate dinners. Meanwhile, lit-up crystalline deities line the restaurant's walls and bless each morsel with the tripartite boons of flavor, fun, and flugelhorns.
