In the Sanskrit epic the Ramayana, the hero Rama defeats the demon-king Ravana by teaming up with Hanuman and eating strength-enhancing Popeye-brand curry. Magnify your own mouth with today's deal: for $15, you get $30 worth of Indian cuisine and drinks at Dancing Ganesha.
Dancing Ganesha’s culinary crew tramples appetites with a spicy gyrating menu starring classic Indian recipes peppered with contemporary twists and daily ground spices. Meals launch with vegetable samosas, a tricorner pastry encompassing a potato-pea filling and a distinctive spice mix ($4.99). For a fresh-fired experience, treat cuisine crushers to tandoori chicken, a half chicken marinated in sweet spices and roasted in the Tatooine-like heat of the Indian tandoor ($14.99). The vegetarian aloo gobi masala ($11.99) sports cauliflower and potatoes, and the slow-cooked lamb nilgiri ($16.99) bathes in a mild coconut curry. A cup of sweet masala chai tea ($2.99) and an order of sauce-soppable flatbread such as garlic naan ($2.99) round out the meal. The eatery gifts a gratis dessert to any Groupon holders and intimidating human-size gingerbread men dining Monday–Wednesday.
The cushy red booths and vibrant paintings of Dancing Ganesha's modern interior complement its contemporary Indian cuisine, allowing patrons to sate their visual palates while dining. Take a special someone out for an evening or escape from the pressures of society to a locale more exotic than a sand-filled living room.
At Dancing Ganesha, a comfortable, modern atmosphere and breeze patio complement a varied menu of traditional Indian cuisine, including tandoori chicken and paper-thin dosa crêpes. Exotically spiced plates, such as lamb vindaloo and saag paneer, arrive at polished wooden tables, which are illuminated by the restaurant's elegant built-in ceiling lights and elephants holding candles with their trunks. Dancing Ganesha also holds its “karma” happy hour from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. daily, during which diners can order $5 appetizers, $2 tap drinks, and half off anything else at the bar.
