I have heard for years that Sangam has no atmosphere, but great Indian food. My friend and I went for dinner a few days ago. It is located in a tiny strip mall near Maxwells Oyster Bar on the Post Road, next to a deli. The interior reminded me of a diner. Oddly enough, they had linen tablecloths with paper placemats.
We had the Alootikki for an appetizer - potato pancake dipped in a chickpea batter and fried. They were delicious and came with three dipping sauces, none of which I know the name of. One looked like guacomole, but tasted like cilantro with a good spicy kick. The second sauce was thin, looked kind of like soy sauce, but had a sweet taste and was also very good. The third, quite frankly, was horrible. It tasted like chopped carrots and tomato paste mixed together.
For dinner, we shared a Tandoori sampler with shrimp, chicken and lamb. The lamb was absolutely fantastic. The chicken was very tender and good. The shrimp was the worst thing I can ever recall eating. It was so tough and chewy, I had to politely spit it into a napkin because I couldn't swallow that tough tasteless mess.
I probably would go back again, because it is the closest Indian restaurant to me and the food (minus the shrimp) was very good.
