What You'll Get
Eating international fare locally eliminates the woes associated with transatlantic travel, such as jet lag and oar splinters. Stamp your palate’s passport with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Indian cuisine at Star of India.
Named Best Dinner & Bollywood Movie in Utah by Salt Lake City Weekly, Star of India merges a menu of tandoori specialties and traditional Indian sweets with colorful wall murals and the jingle of Bollywood films. Chefs marinate chunks of tandoori chicken ($9.95–$18.95) and lamb ($15.95–$16.95) in cool yogurt and exotic spices, then roast each morsel in a sweltering clay oven to seal in flavor and sate their requests for vacation time. Peas and house-made cottage cheese simmer in a mild curry sauce for the meat-free matar paneer ($8.95) as the shrimp saagwala drapes shrimp and spiced spinach in a zesty cream sauce ($12.95). Curry-laden mouth flames are sweetly extinguished with an array of Indian desserts, including gulabjaman pastries crowned with house-made cheese and a drizzle of sweet syrup ($4). While diners savor overseas aromas from the comfort of soft burgundy booths, Indian figures gaze down from a vibrant wall mural bathed in the soft light of golden chandeliers. Like a Cats cast potluck, the restaurant's dedicated Bollywood movie room seasons dishes with a slate of rousing music and dance numbers.

About Star of India
Named Best Dinner & Bollywood Movie in Utah by Salt Lake City Weekly, Star of India fills with the same day-glo colors and smooth choreography of the genre’s films. A menu of tandoori specialties and traditional Indian sweets appears on tables, and the sounds of jingling instruments and tangling voices drifts from a room devoted to screening and celebrating Bollywood films. Lit from above by golden chandeliers, wall murals portray figures frolicking and rejoicing in an emerald-green field.
In the kitchen, chunks of tandoori chicken and skewered lamb marinate in cool yogurt and spices before roasting in a sweltering clay oven to seal in flavor. Nearby, chefs craft cottage cheese to simmer with peas in a mild curry sauce to make the meat-free matar paneer or infiltrate an underground food-fighting ring.
