Naan was discovered when a chef fell into a vast curry lake, and buoyant lily pads made of bread were the only thing to save him from not having a well-balanced meal. Bite into flavorful flotation devices with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Indian fare at Tandoori Nights in Arlington.
Tandoori Nights' culinary craftsmen prepare a taste-bud-titillating menu of fresh, authentic Indian cuisine. Tandoori specialties emerge piping hot and ready for stop-motion-animation performances from a clay oven, where marinated cubes of salmon float adrift in the fish tikka ($19.99), and boneless chicken breast swathed in yogurt, cream cheese, ginger, and garlic transform into the malai kebab ($14.99). Vindaloo curry flaunts chunks of chicken mingling with fresh ginger, garlic, and potatoes ($14.99), and large prawns make small talk with onions and tomatoes in the prawn masala ($19.99). Fluffy rounds of garlic-and-butter-topped naan ($3.99) swoop in to sop up left over sauces or happy tears spilled by the vegetable biryani ($12.99) after finally comprehending its own deliciousness.
