What You'll Get
Though India and Indiana are roughly the same word, their cuisine offerings are worlds apart. Find out the difference two letters makes with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Indian fare and drinks at Sizzling Tandoor in Santa Rosa.
Sizzling Tandoor crafts piquant Indian cuisine in a lush, yet casual atmosphere. The menu brims with classic dishes, including curries, samosas, and naan. Replenish depleted spice deposits with the chicken tikka, marinated with garam masala and yogurt and primed in a traditional tandoor ($16.95), or the sheekh kabob, a gam of lamb dressed in herbs and spices ($18.95). Veg-centric diners can tongue-dive into orders of bhindi masala, which dusts okra, onions, tomatoes, and dry masala with a medley of spices ($11.95), or customizable curry dishes ($11.95+). Sizzling Tandoor also serves up decadent desserts to keep sweet teeth thoroughly occupied while incisors play poker with luckless molars.

About Sizzling Tandoor Indian Restaurant
To enliven the local, organic produce that fills his kitchen, Chef Vinay Patel welcomes monthly shipments of spices from India, such as turmeric, fenugreek, ginger, and cardamom. After seasoning his meats, he lowers them into a clay tandoor to cook over handpicked, hardwood mesquite charcoal. For all the effort that goes into each chicken dish, curry, and biryani, the Bohemian has awarded Sizzling Tandoor Indian Restaurant its Best Indian award for 22 years running.
The dishes sprawl from traditional entrees to Northern and Southern Indian specialties and Indo-Chinese fusion dishes. Chefs also tandoor-fire nearly a dozen types of bread, including naan, paratha, and gluten-free and vegan missi roti to sop up sauces. Rather than placing a miniature fire extinguisher at each table, chefs calibrate each dish's spiciness from mild to hot.
As diners expand the depth of their palate, an Indian ambiance envelops their body. At the Santa Rosa location, live belly dancers charm and entertain on Friday and Saturday night, and live musicians stop by for events such as Samosas and Sitar. While watching, guests can nurse Indian beers and specialty cocktails including the Sizzling Sunset, which ups the ante of traditional mango lassi with vodka.
