Had been here more than a year ago. Hated it, so much so that we headed straight for the creamery in newtown to pamper ourselves. I am off an Indian origin and just could not accept the food they serve in the nane of Indian food. It is infact completely altered to be palatable to the locals. Over the past... More

I live in Newtown, and Kolam has (until recently) always been my "go to" for Indian. The food is consistently excellent, in particular the lamb biryani (which is mysteriously always different, but always tasty), the vindaloo, and the samosas. However, I had a very negative Mother's Day dinner which was the last straw in a series of less-than-pleasant customer service... More

The first time I was here, it was a pleasant experience. Of course, I like to go back to places I've enjoyed, and the last 3 times I've returned, I've left less than impressed. Their dinner menu is fairly broad, and has some really nice dishes. So I'd definitely recommend coming here for that. However, I've visited the lunch buffet... More

We love Indian food and since our favorite place in Brookfield CT closed we now go to Kolam. Its a bit of a ride for us but well worth it. Staff is very friendly and the food is so fresh and full of flavor.

This was my first visit to Kolam. The food was excellent. We were served very well. The environment was peaceful and inviting.

I hesitate to write this review of Kolam, because now it's a little bit of a secret, and I don't want to spoil that. In a word, the food at Kolam is Superb. Not since London have we tasted authentic Indian food as good as it is served here. A substantial menu to select from, and the dishes prepared with... More

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!
