Wow. We live in town and eat here often! Best Indian food around! But let me tell you- take out is the only way to go. The past year the manager who is always there has been so miserable and inattentive to the point that tonight we have decided we will sadly not return. While we were eating the manager... More

Place is good and food is also great. Kolam has good options for vegetarian people as well. I mostly go with colleagues during the lunch buffet.

I've been eating here at least bi-monthly since 2004 and have never had anything but a great meal. The lunch buffet is also a good bargain at $10.95. It's always kept well stocked and fresh. Nice decor and friendly staff. If you like Indian food you will not go wrong here.

OMG the food is fabulous, the service is impeccable, and the atmosphere is good! The experience was great from moment you walk in the door, the sweet smells, the candles, the waitstaff and food. The staff is very attentive! It was a incredible dining experience. Will be returning soon!

We love Kolam. When my husband and I moved to Danbury, CT, we didn't have a lot of options for Indian food near us, so we ventured the 15 minute highway drive to Kolam. It was well worth it! The food is delicious, and the staff is incredibly friendly. We consistently have a good meal. I highly recommend the restaurant.

Took another couple out for dinner. They were unfamiliar with Indian Cuisine. We ordered four different entrees, some vegetarian, so that everybody could try each one. The hit of the evening was the Chicken Tikka Masala. That was so good I almost asked for a spoon so that I could eat the rest of the sauce. The warm carrot dessert... More

This was our second visit and very disappointed. With many, many tables free, we were seated at a tiny table in the back, which was two mismatched tables combined next to the buffet. At the end of our meal most tables in the main dining room were still free. While disappointing, worse was when the server didn't put my husband's... More

This is probably the worst place for Indian Food. Gosh.... It was so difficult to complete the meal. We ordered Dosa, Kadai Paneer, Dum Aloo, all were a big disappointment. Would never dream of recommending this restaurant to anyone

At here with six friends on a sat night. The menu contained many choices i haven't seen on an indian menu. The servers were friendly and efficient. The food was delicious. Three of us ordered tandoori - chicken, fish and vegetarian. All portions were generous. The veggie dish was great. Root veggies, peppers, onion, and indian cheese. - like an... More

Not many Indian restaurants in the area. The food is tasty, but the meats sometimes seem overlooked. Service is very good. Small eating area, but I have never seen them too busy. They do a lot of take out orders. The beers I have had are pretty warm. The buffet is a great value. The tandoori sampler is great. The... More
