Nice little restaurant. The food was fine but it was the worse service I have ever received, hands down. It took forever to get someone to our table. Once they took our order it was another 20 minutes or so to get our very simple order. Then we had to go get our own cutlery and napkin before we could... More

We love Indian food and often eat out. Seen this place for the past 8 years but never ate there because it was always empty. Craved Indian yesterday and decided to give it a try. Although I can understand the 'watered' down American version but don't believe 'watery' curries are acceptable. Ordered spicy lamb curry, it was sweet and watery.... More

There are many seafood restaurants around the cape, but knowing that the golden swan put their Indian twist to it was awesome! We ordered the lobster tikka masala (being big fans of lobster). The way it was presented was with a tikka masala sauce which was great! Gotta go back and try other seafood dishes soon!

We have gotten take-out from The Golden Swan several times. The order is always correctly prepared and ready when promised. We also find the prices to be reasonable. The food is fine -- fills our bellies and is enjoyable -- but it is not excellent. It does the trick on an evening when we need a good, reliable dinner.

We were craving Indian food during a week's vacation in the Boston and Cape Cod area, so stopped here. Ordered chappatis, a naan, aloo-gobi and channa-masala, followed by masala tea. Requested spice level was medium (because even though we're Indian, we've lost the ability to deal with really spicy food). Food was authentic as could be - straight from Punjab... More

Finding Indian on the Cape is not easy. Back in NY and NJ Indian food is easily found and normally inexpensive. On the Cape, not so much. The restaurant is situated in Down-town Falmouth and is decorated nicely, but the lighting is a little dark, especially for lunch. We were greeted by a friendly host and shown to our seats.... More

The Golden Swan is one of my favorite restaurants in Falmouth. They're food is unbelievable, so good it even got the seal of approval from my desi friend, an accolade reserved only for her mother's cooking and a select few restaurants in New York and London. Let me just clarify that point: This is world class Indian Cuisine. If you... More

I am a regular customer and Golden Swan has been by far the best Indian restaurant I've been to. I am a traveler and have tried Indian food all over the place, including England and this restaurant has always been better in regards to food and service. There is a review where it says that this restaurant "sucks" and I... More

Another couple and my spouse and I were attending a concert in Falmouth and needed to find a restaurant. We chose this one based on the rating and that we all like Indian food. The food was delicious! We started with tasty vegetable and meat samosas, 3 different lamb dishes plus 1 shrimp curry, garlic naan that was among the... More
