Restaurant.com's 80% off sale - where and what to eat?

Hi all,

As some of you may know, restaurant.com holds these semi-regular 80% off sales where you can get meals for less than they cost normally. They're kind of like regular Groupons where you can get (for example) $25 worth of food for $10; but during the sale, a lot of these coupons go for $2 instead of $10, so you essentially get $23 worth of food for free. The catch is that you have to spend a minimum amount (generally ranges from $35 to $50), which is not too much of a problem if you invite several people to join you. At last check, there were some 167 restaurants participating within 10 miles of where I live.

If you've participated in the promotion, where have you eaten? What's good? What's not?

I've been to Taste of the Himalayas in Berkeley and I've enjoyed my meal there. While the main dishes are a tad more expensive than other South Asian places, it's balanced by the fact that rice and daal is included as well. In particular, I've enjoyed their sizzler plates. The okra was also very well-received by the diners at my table. What have you had that's good?
