With its sweltering heat, arid landscapes, and indigenous population of Indians, India could not be more different from Arizona. Today's Groupon gives you a taste of that distant land: for $10, you get $20 worth of authentic North Indian cuisine and drinks at New Delhi Palace on East Broadway Boulevard.
New Delhi Palace has been serving up traditional North Indian cuisine to local Indiophiles for 21 years and boasts an extensive menu of mouth-enlightening appetizers and entrees, many of which are prepared the way mama-ji used to make them—barbecued in a tandoor oven (such as the tender tandoori chicken, $8.95) or stir-fried in a karhai wok (such as the signature shrimp fraizee, $13.95). Share an appetizer of vegetable ($3.25) or lamb samosas ($3.95) with your cat's parole officer before moving on to the main course. The Palace's 14 vegetarian entrees, such as the classic aloo gobi ($7.95), a spiced cauliflower and potato combo, will entice the group's herbivores, while the meat-minded can satisfy complex carnal cravings with the spicy lamb vindaloo ($9.95). If the spice raises your body temperature and accidentally gives you the power to see all possible futures, cool down with a sweet glass of the mango lassi ($2.95) or the nimboo pani ($2.95), a hand-blended lemonade. Once the last song has been sung and the last dance danced, a dessert of pistachio-sprinkled rice pudding ($2.50) or sweet gulab jamun ($2.50), a cheese ball dipped in rose syrup, will ensure a happy ending worthy of a Bollywood movie.
As you admire New Delhi Palace’s wall-to-wall murals of far-away Indian countryscapes (including one particularly lifelike rendering of what appears to be a parking lot outside a Tucson Indian restaurant), you can enjoy the casual eatery’s full list of beer, wine, and cocktails. Two Groupons can be combined for tables of six or more, making it easy to turn a solitary supper into a group get-together, so invite along all your identical-twin friends and try to figure out why you’re friends with so many identical twins at New Delhi Palace.

- Beautifully fresh, authentic Indian food served up in a serene and friendly--although rather dim--atmosphere at the corner of Jessica Avenue and Broadway Boulevard. Everything is good. Get an order of garlic naan for each of you so you don't fight over it. – Tucson Weekly
- … if you are looking for the finest most authentic FOOD, then this is Tucsons finest. We have been to every indian food restaurant in Tucson many many times and this one is by far the most consistent and delicious. – acash1, Citysearch
- The tandoori chicken was nice and moist; so often it's very dried out on buffets. There was the usual rice and daal, potato samosas, a spinach dish, chicken curry, very nice lamb meatballs, and a potato/zucchini dish. In addition, the chutneys were all very fresh tasting… – LynnTTT, TripAdvisor
- We placed an order to-go. It was so amazing that we came back the next night and ordered more! Everyone working there seemed super friendly and helpful, and our order was ready in no time at all. – Tiffany, Urbanspoon
New Delhi Palace
Hazy, pastel-colored murals line the walls at New Delhi Palace, each depicting an Indian skyline with temples or rolling hills in the distance. The scents of cumin and coriander waft out of the kitchen, transporting diners over the ocean in a fraction of the time that a traditional turtle ride would take. Since the 1980s, the kitchen has crafted North Indian–style cuisine, such as the chicken, shrimp, and lamb, arriving fresh from the clay tandoor after marinating in yogurt and ground spices. The wok-like karahi sears meats before dousing them in tomato-based gravies, whose spiciness is calibrated to suit customers' tastes. The all-wood bar houses wines and beers from around the world, including India, Japan, and Great Britain.
