Known for its spices, Indian fare jolts the taste buds in a manner that kissing an electrical socket could never match. Enjoy shockingly good cuisine with today’s Groupon to Taj Palace in Visalia. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of Indian cuisine for dinner, valid from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Taj Palace’s well-seasoned chefs simmer a spiced spread of homemade Indian cuisine, including numerous vegetarian options. Hunks of shrimp ($12.99) and fish tandori ($12.99) emerge singed and steaming from the scorching atrium of a clay charcoal oven, which chars the crispy skin and incinerates erroneous nautical maps. A savory blend of fresh tomatoes, cream, and oriental herbs flavors slowly simmered morsels of chicken ($9.99) or lamb tikka masala ($9.99), and a plate of shrimp garlic nazara invigorates tongues with a zesty infusion of garlic, ginger, and green chilies ($9.99). A vibrant coalition of curries runs the gamut from tender vegetable ($6.99) to juicy lamb ($9.99) and colors lackluster plates in fiery rosy tones. Like a taco stand inside a pizza parlor, the sprawling lunch buffet supplies ravenous diners with a variety of tasty dishes.
Just as it is done in India, the chicken, lamb, and shrimp at Taj Palace marinate in a bubble of herbs and spices before cooking in the clay tandoor oven. Chefs Kunal & Max replicate the culinary flavors and techniques of India, using a traditional tandoor and simmering pots full of curry. A number of vegetarian and vegan dishes find potatoes paired with spinach and cheese cubes dunked in a spiced tomato sauce. The eatery’s banquet hall hosts wedding receptions and birthday parties, with a variety of shareable dishes and libations.
