We fancied something different as we both don't really like Spanish food so thought we'd try an Indian. SO glad we did. As soon as we sat down in the restaurant, the owner came over and shook both mine and my girlfriends hand. He was polite, accommodating and spoke very good English. This is one of the best Indian restaurants... More

The first meeting with the restaurant was the owner who shook hands. Pleasant place even if the premises are not looked like a restaurant. It was a bit secluded. People got in line to get seated. Lovely food! I recommend this highly! Indian food!

Greeted by enthusiatic Mr Mohan Lal, eating at Swagatam was an excellent experience. Food was simple and authentic Indian. For those looking for vegetarian options, this is the place. Ambience is modest; but service is great! Food was fresh and hygenic. Will certainly visit again!

If you eat REAL homecooked Indian food regularly and really know what it should taste like then this place will disappoint you as it did for me. I will admit that the service was very impeccable, in particular the affable Pratap and the efficient, yet friendly waitress. However, for all the rave reviews people have given this place on here,... More

First off, you should know that G.G. is a long-term BCN resident but originally from Japan and so we are always on the lookout for, and almost always disappointed by the dearth of, asian-food offerings in Barcelona. (We are not sure which it is: do good asian chefs come here and realise that spanish people don't care about good asian... More

Decided to have Indian and this restaurant had the highest rating for Indian cuisine restaurant in Barcelona. A short walk from Diagonal Metro station. Was easy to find. Simple decor but excellent food. Mr Lal, the owner was very friendly and arranged to alter the food to our taste. The vegetable pakora, shahi paneer and vegetable pilau that we had... More

I've eaten and cooked Indian food for over 40 years and I certainly wasn't expecting to sample anything remotely good in Spain. I was wrong, Swagatam is a great authentic Indian. My benchmark dish is Rogan Josh, and what was served up here was exactly like you'd get in Rajasthan. Well recommended.
