Known for its spices, Indian fare jolts the taste buds in a manner that kissing an electrical socket could never match. Enjoy shockingly good cuisine with today's Groupon: for $16, you get a dinner for two at Royal Indian Restaurant in Van Nuys (up to a $32.90 total value). The dinner includes:

Royal Indian Restaurant fills bellies with authentic Indian cuisine brimming with lean meats and locally grown veggies and herbs. Visitors can stuff samosa backpacks with lamb and peas ($3.50 for two) before exploring a menu of flavorful curries and biryanis. Instead of munching lit candles, diners can heat mouths with chicken vindaloo ($10.95 a la carte) prepared with curried potatoes and a splash of lemon juice. Arks of mixed tandoori ($12.95 a la carte) teem with lamb tikka and chicken baked in a traditional clay oven, and prawns dog-paddle through the shrimp bhuna’s pool of curry, tomatoes, and bell peppers ($11.95 a la carte). Vegetarians can prevent gastrointestinal temper tantrums by putting their pancreases in time-out or by indulging in more than a dozen meat-free specialties, such as the creamy, raisin-dappled vegetable korma ($8.95 a la carte).
Royal Indian Restaurant's dining room welcomes guests with the vibrant scents of south Asian spices and a colorful selection of framed art. Diners can compete for coveted booth seating by arm-wrestling on crisp white tablecloths or playing tug-of-war with elegant cloth napkins.
