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 $15, you get $30 worth of authentic Indian cuisine and drinks during dinner hours at Namaste Indian Cuisine.
Namaste Indian Cuisine's sprawling menu offers a culinary treasure map of authentic flavors from Northern and Southern India. Warm up your digestive apparatus with an appetizer of sev puri, a smattering of potato patties accompanied by garbanzo beans ($5.95). The chicken tikka masala—cooked in creamy tomato sauce and roasted in a traditional tandoori ($12.99)—scrumptiously truncates hunger spasms, while the vegetable korma ($10.99) can delectably sustain meat-averse diets. Any entree or starter can be artfully paired with a mango lassi, a beverage from Namaste's full bar ($3), or a side order of pillowy naan ($2), which doubles as a handy take-home envelope for leftover rice pudding ($5). Aside from flooding taste sensors with aromatic delights, live performances can be enjoyed every evening, including musical numbers by Namaste owner and professional singer Melquedes Rodriguez.
- This is one of my favorite restaurants in Las Vegas and a must if you appreciate good Indian food. The lunch buffet is excellent, always some different items and a great variety. – Emily B., Yelp
- This is the best Indian food I've ever had. The chicken vindaloo was amazing so was the garlic naan. So was everything else. Eat here! – Marcus fox, Urbanspoon
Namaste Indian Cuisine
Melque Rodrigues, owner of Namaste Indian Cuisine, doesn’t finish her work with the final course—she personally entertains patrons by soaring through live performances of jazz and pop songs every night of the week. With such a hands-on owner, it is no surprise that the menu covers so much culinary ground. Unlike a Christmas bonus from a gruel factory, the menu includes a wide range of ingredients, which chefs craft into chicken and shrimp cooked in clay oven and selections specifically for vegans and vegetarians. The meatless dishes lean heavily on housemade cheese and lentils, and chefs cloak offerings for omnivores in sauces with vinegar, cream, and tomato bases.
