According to most restaurant critics, the perfect Indian meal is served on a plate, which rests on a table with legs. Try some authentic Indian cuisine the way it was meant to be served with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of authentic Indian eats and accompanying drinks at Tanduri Fusion, located on South 174th Street just north of West Center Road.
The charming chefs at Tanduri Fusion serve up authentic, artful Northern Indian dishes culled from fresh, natural ingredients and wholesome sauces. Peppered throughout Tanduri's dinner menu is a variety of piquant spice combinations to startle your stamp-licker. The mildly spiced vegetable samosa ($3.95) segues swimmingly into the succulent mulligatawny soup ($3). Race cars, senile felines, and other palindromic personages can nosh the naan ($2.25) at noon, 12:21, or before a long night of Googling palindromes. An aromatic tandoori marinade tops the tasty boneless bird found in each chicken tikka ($13.95), and creativity abounds in fusion fare such as the chicken pad tanduri ($14.95), which mixes Indian spices with stir-fried rice noodles, egg, and cashew sauce.
Yellow and burnt-orange walls surround the wooden bar and comfy booths inside Tanduri Fusion's warm, family-friendly atmosphere. Unlike rattlesnake roller derbies, an attentive, gracious squad constantly patrols the establishment floor.

Clay ovens quietly roast yogurt-marinated chicken, and cooks scurry about the kitchen of Tanduri Fusion, mixing exotic curries and sautéing ginger and garlic to coat tender cuts of lamb. Chefs use natural, fresh ingredients to prepare each dish, with inventive offerings including the tanduri top sirloin with cilantro-peppercorn butter and lamb sirloin wraps in grilled naan. For traditional Indian thali dinners, servers deliver large round dishes filled with a bounty of tandoori chicken or curried vegetables, complemented by sides of yogurt sauce and chutney.
Patrons may enjoy their meals tucked inside wooden booths or head out to the patio to soak up sun and satellite emissions while eating. A full bar offers some stool seating, perfect for casually sampling from the extensive wine list.
