Clay tandoor ovens imbue Indian eats with flavor, give South Asian restaurants an authentic touch, and act as easy targets for novice skeet shooters. Hang fang on tandoori dishes with today's Groupon: for $13, you get $30 worth of South Asian cuisine at Shalimar Restaurant's Seattle location.

Shalimar Restaurant's culinary artists draw inspiration from Indian and Pakistani muses to sculpt a colossal menu of exotic eats, earning the restaurant a feature in the Seattle Times. Begin a tasty journey by tooth-trekking across the aloo tikki's seasoned potato patties, dusted with fresh garlic and coriander, and paired with a mint and tamarind chutney for accentuating savory flavors and adorning upper lips with a saucy mustache ($5.50). Fenugreek and cumin invade the vindaloo's curry-enforced fortress of flavors, assailing a choice of meat or cheese with aromatic accents ($11.95–$14.95). Meanwhile, the chicken tikka's boneless meat steeps in yogurt and spices ($13.95) before a traditional tandoor oven pulls it into a toasty embrace hot enough to melt butter-carved Taj Mahals.

On Wednesdays and Thursdays, Bolllywood-inspired belly dancers undulate to a tableside waterfall's melodious gurgle, and intimate lighting illuminates exposed brick, Asia-torn lanterns, and a weathered wall flecked with candles. Located near the University of Washington, Shalimar Restaurant provides a great jumping-off point for marathon study sessions, marathon streaking sessions, or marathon marathon sessions.

Shalimar Restaurant

Head Chef Wasif Qadri of Shalimar Restaurant cut his teeth in the culinary world during the 1980s, cooking French and Pacific Northwestern cuisine tableside at Maxi's Bar and Grill in Portland. After preparing meals for celebrities such as Madonna, the Beach Boys, former president George H. W. Bush, and the ghost of William Howard Taft, Qadri opened Shalimar Restaurant in Seattle, adding an inventive twist to classic Indian-Pakistani cuisine. At Shalimar, the bill of fare spans the Indian subcontinent, from the clove-kissed korma curries of Lahore to the cayenne-infused spice blends and veggie-stew sambals of Madras. Chef Qadri and his kitchen staff fashion tandoori tikka naan sandwiches, pasta dishes smothered in liberal doses of curry sauce, and vegetarian specialties.
