Tawa Indian Cuisine Relocates to a New Address in Stamford, CT
Chef Kausik Roy Brings his Bold and Flavorful Cuisine to the
Charming Neighborhood of Glenbrook
January 18, 2016, Stamford, CT: Celebrated Chef Kausik Roy of Tawa Indian Cuisine is making his move – to that of a larger and more versatile restaurant space in the Glenbrook neighborhood of Stamford, a stone’s throw away from his original location in the high-octane sector of Downtown Stamford. A Summer Street restaurant since 2010, Tawa has enjoyed preparing home style Indian cuisine to patrons in their 2-story space amid a flourishing city, persistent construction, and growing restaurant landscape. The move to 487 Glenbrook Road affords Tawa a larger space, convenient private parking, and a large outdoor patio component for Chef Roy to provide more offerings to his customers, such as Indian BBQ in the warmer months.
“This move is allowing Tawa Indian Cuisine to take things to the next level, “beams an enthusiastic chef, “The city has been good to us and provided us with the foundation to introduce our brand of Indian cuisine to the masses. There’s so much more we want to do with this concept, and our new location will provide us with the flexibility and convenience that both Tawa and our customers will benefit from.”
The new restaurant is housed in a free-standing colonial style dwelling adjacent to the Glenbrook Train Station, among an active residential and retail neighborhood located 2 miles from downtown Stamford.  The large space, divided into multiple dining areas, seats 85 inside and another 30 on the patio. Dressed is stylish wood paneling and colorful Indian street food photography, the space radiates with natural sunlight by day and in the evening morphs into a cozy neighborhood eatery.
Chef Roy has studied the ways Americans respond to the complex tastes and spices of traditional Indian cooking.  Tawa is an extension of the home style Indian cuisine the chef grew up with, along with more modern interpretations he has developed throughout the years, satisfying the purists, as well as the adventurous.
Vibrant and exciting classic, as well as new preparations of fresh vegetables, meat and seafood are the basis to Tawa’s style of Indian bistro fare. Tasty vegetarian and gluten-free dishes are also featured, in addition to Chef Roy’s signature “Indo-Chinese” specialties. Favorites include; tropical green mango salad with market fresh greens and mango-onion seed dressing; vegetable samosa with minced potatoes and peas wrapped in pastry dough and deep fried; coconut and pepper shrimp with chutney mayo; tandoori chicken marinated in yogurt, garlic, ginger and fresh ground spices; Bengali fish curry with tomato and eggplant; lamb korma with a creamy almond based gravy and a touch of saffron; and Kausik’s now famous crispy okra with red onion, cilantro and green  chilli.
Indo-Chinese preparations include; chicken lollypop with spring onion-ginger soy sauce; hakka chili fish or shrimp tossed with long hot chili peppers and onions in a spicy soy ginger sauce; and fried rice or noodles tossed with golden fried minced garlic and crushed dried chili, seasoned with soy sauce and malt vinegar. 
Chef Kausik Roy, upon receiving his Bachelor’s Degree in hotel management and catering technology in India, at just 22 years of age became the Executive Chef for the Taj Hotel Group in Calcutta where he introduced imaginative dishes based on traditional Indian fare. In 1996 Chef Roy came to the United States and immediately distinguished himself as an up and coming chef when he opened Coromandel in Darien, CT, receiving high praise from the critics. In 2003 he opened Brick Lane Curry House in New York City, a successful Indian restaurant and catering company which continues to thrive. In 2010 Chef Roy introduced Tawa Indian Cuisine to downtown Stamford. Tawa’s bread bar concept and home cooked approach to the foods he grew up with at home, and while cooking for the Taj Hotel Group, was the foundation for this downtown eatery and bar.  Tawa Indian Cuisine has been a premiere Indian restaurant destination  since 2010 and continues to raise the bar within Stamford’s thriving dining scene.
Tawa Indian Cuisine is set to make a seamless transition from their Summer Street location to their new digs on Glenbrook Road on Wednesday, January 27.  Tawa is open 7 days a week for buffet lunch and traditional dinner service and take-out service, in addition to a spectacular Sunday brunch buffet and Indian BBQ on the weekends throughout the warmer months.
