“Authentic and tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Lots of choices, and all excellent. Also travels well if you want for take-out. Entertainment on Weekends.

“Takeout is delish...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

I've never been to the restaurant so I can't speak about the service. My husband usually brings home takeout from Coromandel and it is delicious. I do wish they would make their chicken tikka masala with dark meat instead of chicken breast. Overall , the sauce is great, especially with the garlic naan. Love the saag paneer!

“Indian restaurant in SoNo”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is an average-quality food restaurant. The ambiance is pretty nice. Not the best Indian option in Fairfield county.

“Food you will crave after leaving”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

I am a big fan of all of the Coromandel restaurants that I have been to which include Orange, South Norwalk, Stamford and the original in Darien. Coromandel restaurants are not just great Indian restaurants, they are GREAT RESTAURANTS. All of the locations have their own character and have slightly different interpretations of certain dishes that appear on each location's menu.

The SONO location is expertly run by Gopi Nair. If I lived a little closer to SONO I would be there all the time. The subtlety of the spices used at this restaurant is truly impressive. When I say impressive, I mean you will be craving what you ate days afterward. Another strong point for Coromandel SONO is how healthy their ingredients are. Unlike most Indian restaurants, they use less oil and heavy creams in their dishes. Overall, their food is healthier and leaner than their competitors.

The best way to sample many dishes is to order a few main menu items to share with your dinner/lunch party since most main menu dishes are served in bowls with your choice of brown or white basmati rice on the side. This makes it easy for everyone to try multiple dishes. Normally I would tell you which dishes are best but so many are outstanding that I simply cannot narrow it down for you. However, I will give you one head start: the baby eggplant curry dish (Goothi Vonkaya Koora) is out of this world.

If you need recommendations for what to order, Gopi and his staff will be happy to help you. The whole staff is very professional.

“Great Atmosphere, Great Food..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

This Coromandel is better than the one in Stamford but not good as the one in Darien.
This place is ultra-sleek & modern looking inside. The food is Gourmet Indian as one of my Indian colleagues called it. Anyhow I would definitely recommend giving this place a try, you will be happy you did..
