“Fantastic Indian food”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

My husband and I always look forward to going to Kolam. The food is great and so is the service. From the outside you would never think there is an Indian restaurant inside. Once inside the decor is minimal but the food is what is it all about! If you are looking for a great Indian restaurant in Northern Fairfield county this is the place!! Prices are very reasonable too.

“Consistently Deelish - this is our go to indian place”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

To start, I am north indian, and this place claims to be south indian, but the dishes are all basically north indian with south indian names. I had to say that because thats a good thing. North American palates are not quite ready for south indian dishes yet. With that out of the way, this place is fabulous. The ambiance is pretty decent, not nyc trendy or fancy, but def on the fancier side for an indian restaurant. the food is always cooked fresh, with decent portion sizes. definitely not on the cheap side, but a very good value. we always order a few vegetarian dishes and some chicken, lamb and fish, which are all better than average. probably top 3 indian restaurant in fairfield county. you definitely want to order family style here as the portions are large enough to share. We are usually a group of 4 adults with 5 kids (5-11), and we order (2) veggie, (2) chicken, (2) lamb and a fish dish. along with several variations of their breads. Plenty of basmati rice comes along with each dish so dont order any more. (we always have left overs for a couple of doggie bags. Wine list is decent (7/10), but if you consider yourself a connoisseur, then bring your own and pay a 10$ corkage fee. I personally prefer the indian lagers with my meal. Desserts are also a must. I would skip the apps and just order an extra dish if you think you might be a big eater. enjoy.

“Very Happy With Experience”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Nice place. Decent decor and the service is very attentive and friendly. The food was very good although I would say not quite as good as Jaipore in Brewster, NY. I would recommend checking out Kolam if you are in the area.

“Delicious food in a comfortable environment”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Warm friendly restaurant with delicious food. Biryani was crave-worthy. Servers seemed busy, but it didn't affect our overall experience. Will return!
