Great tasting food with some limitations

There were four of us for a birthday dinner. We had vegetable pakora and the non vegetarian platter for appetizers. Both were excellent. The onion chutney served with the pakora was very flavorful with a nice medium plus heat. Two of us ordered lamb vindaloo for entrees with medium plus heat... read more

I would eat dinner here every night if I could. I absolutely love the food, so delicious and many many dishes to chose from. If you like Indian food, just GO. A true gem to have in Falmouth!!

It was such a relief when this place opened - I had to go to Boston for decent naan before that! I've only had vegetarian entrees (channa masala and dal makhani) but my friends were very happy with the meat dishes also. Excellent veggie samosas! Staff are always pleasant and service quick. Another reviewer complained that the decor needs updating,... More

This place is in serious need of a makeover... The interior is very dark and outdated and turns people away. The food is outstanding and the lady that runs it is a sweetheart too. I think with a good update inside and out this would be a packed house in falmouth. Unfortunately the place seems dirty and icky . Every... More

We live in Falmouth and have several restaurants that are favorites. This is the one for Indian food. The wings are a big hit, and the saag paneer is tasty. The breads are very good, too. We have never had trouble getting a seat without reservations.

We visited The Golden Swan whilst staying near Falmouth,I had the Shrimp Vindaloo which was very tasty but not as hot as the vindaloos eaten in England. After our meal we asked for coffee and were informed that they only served Indian tea (a bit of a surprise as we were in America)

Had dinner there with friends. I tried the lobster tika (from fresh lobster), which was very good. So was my husband's chicken vindaloo (he ordered medium and hindsight should have ordered hot - but it is hard to know when you are new to a place). The breads were very good as well, although not as good as the dishes.

We drive almost 40 minutes to come here on a regular basis. Super yummy, consistent and very friendly family run business. our faves include the chicken curry, chicken tikka masala, aloo paneer, veggie samosas and the veggie pakoras.

I went to the Golden Swan with my wife and daughter. We ordered a non veg dinner for two. We selected two curries of our choice. The meal started with a samosa, followed by a platter of meats and vegetables. Then the curries were brought with bread and rice. The service was very friendly, making the dining experience very enjoyable.... More
