  1. Tawa in Stamford, but I prefer Coromandel in Darien. Both will provide exceptionally good Indian food. Parking is much easier in Darien, if that's a consideration.

      I completely agree, CTeater. The Coromandel in Stamford is just meh, but the Darien location is quite good. Tawa in Stamford is a great option if you want to stay in Stamford.

    2. No contest, go to Coromandel in Darien. Better than anything in Stamford.

      1. I like Tawa over Coromandel (Stam), have never gone to the Darien loc, so I can't compare. I do think Tawa was better when it was at it's High Ridge loc. though. The food and service was slightly better than it is now, the atmosphere was more intimate also.

        I once had a convo with the Tawa manager and he said both owners are very good friends. I've only been to Coromandel twice, once for dinner, once for lunch. For lunch I went with a group and of our party, two, including myself, had a little stomach trouble afterwards so I've been a little shy about going back there.

          The two Coromandel locations are not comparable. And I agree - the food at Tawa's old location was better, and I liked the whole feel better (and the easy parking). Since they moved downtown, I tend to favor the drive to Darien, for the better food and convenience.

        2. Thanks. I've now been to both. While both were good, I found Tawa to be a bit on the bland side. It may have been what we ordered, so I will give it another try. Coromandel had better flavor, but the portions were on the smaller side. I guess I'm just used to city prices and portions for Indian food.

          1. Coromandel in Darien!!! Easy decision. No brainer.
