An Indian restaurant meal is incomplete without chewing on traditional after-dinner anise seeds, which cleanse the palate before patrons gnaw a subterranean tunnel home. Chew the scenery with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Indian cuisine at Tadka in Mississauga. This Groupon can be used for Tadka's dinner buffet, as well as a la carte menu items.
Tadka invites guests to dine in chic comfort with candlelit tables, a warm fireplace, and a menu of authentic curries, tandoori dishes, and straight-from-the-oven naan. While chefs are busy hand-mixing signature spices for each dish, diners may begin with an order of naan ($2) and a masala tea ($2.50) that bolster inner strength for overturning dinner tables or for simply continuing the meal. Vegetarian entrees abound in 14 varieties, including the palak corn prepared with spinach, spices, and corn ($8). Succulent meat dishes fill the air with the aromas of tandoori chicken ($10) or chicken tikka ($11), which smell suspiciously like dreams coming true. Offerings plucked from the ocean include red fish curry ($11) or marinated tandoori fish ($11), which deliciously hamper hunger before dessert cravings lead forks to handmade cheese dumplings doused in rose-flavoured milk ($4).
