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: for $32, you get one appetizer, two entrees, and two desserts at The Viceroy Royal Indian Dining in Dunwoody (up to a $65 value).
Buttressed by a piping hot tandoori oven, the hardworking chefs at The Viceroy pamper palates of all persuasions with flavorful dishes made from natural ingredients and Indian spices. Delicious appetizers such as the potato-stuffed vegetable samosa ($4) create satisfying preludes to meals cooked to spice specifications, whether it be mild, medium, hot, or Indian hot⎯a fiery mix of herbs that excites palates the way an unmanned bowl of candy excites adult trick-or-treaters. Main courses run the savory gamut from the tandoori filet mignon, rendered in a traditional clay crucible ($20), to the chana masala, a vegan mélange of garbanzo beans and diced potatoes in a hearty north Indian sauce ($11). A sweet lineup of desserts, such as kheer rice pudding ($3) or cold and creamy kulfi ($4), caps off meals with smooth textures and pleasing dulcet harmonies.
As diners nourish their appetites for full-flavor Indian fare, the luxurious ambiance ensconces guests in sumptuous décor the exotic subcontinent would be proud of. Gold-accented black-and-white walls set a tone of elegance; Oriental portraits and paintings evoke cultural imagery as sparkling chandeliers jealously leer over mouthwatering plates of curry.
The Viceroy Royal Indian Dining
Once a title carried by the top government officials in British India, the term "viceroy" connotes a regal finery and splendor. The word serves well for The Viceroy Royal Indian Dining, where the aroma of roasting spice, the warmth of clay tandoori ovens, and the taste of curry are all intended to make a luxurious impression. Like a bespoke suit of beef jerky, each meal bursts at the seams with flavor. Chefs pepper garlic naan, lamb kebab, and tikka masala with freshly ground herbs and spices, ranging in potency from mild to traditionally spicy. The restaurant's decor makes for an elegant backdrop, sporting high ceilings ringed with bright saffron hues and crystal chandeliers, and walls covered in colorful paintings of Indian wildlife and marble palaces.
