After India gained independence from the United Kingdom, British chefs' failed attempts to replicate Indian cuisine yielded only curry-scented flying nannies and wry sitcoms about tandoori. Savor successful reproductions with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Indian cuisine and beverages at Taj of Marin in San Rafael.

Recently named Best of Marin by Pacific Sun, Taj of Marin's authentic dishes, which include an array of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options, waft in on piquant winds from the north and south of India. The enticing menu eases diners into an Indian landfall as calculated as Columbus' with appetizers that include pesto paneer pakora, whose golden batter conceals cottage cheese and pesto ($7.95). Entrees include such veggie-based stars as the vegan bhindi masala, a gaggle of okra stewed in onion, garlic, ginger, and tomatoes ($10.95), as well as carnivorous creations made with hormone- and antibiotic-free meats. Neptunian noshers can sate their aquatic appetites with fish tikka ($14.95), as well as southern specialties such as crab dosa, delicate crepes loaded with dungeness crab ($10.99). Diners can complete the culinary cycle with a mango lassi ($3.95), a gluten-free beer, or any beer, fine wine, or traditional Indian drink from the diverse beverage selection.

Taj of Marin's dining room houses pale yellow walls, vibrant Indian artwork, ornate furnishings, and twinkling chandeliers. Every Thursday and Saturday evening, the restaurant marinates in live music, inspiring patrons to rhythmically sway hips and tap feet-shaped phones.

Taj of Marin

For the Singh family, Taj of Marin serves as a medium for sharing authentic Indian food with the community, including specialties from both the north and the south. Diners pull ornate chairs up to tables, where they peruse a menu of dishes that are as traditional as the decor, lit by chandeliers suspended overhead without the use of hexes. Chicken and lamb free of hormones and antibiotics take starring roles in many of the flavorful entrees, such as chicken tikka masala with a creamy tomato sauce, or an exotic lamb curry. Many others are vegetarian, gluten-free, or vegan, such as the vegan bhindi masala made with fresh okra, ginger, and garlic, the vegetarian palak paneer with fresh spinach spiced cottage cheese, and the gluten-free naan. On some evenings, live music floats through the air, competing with spicy aromas for guests' full attention.
