Attended a surprise birthday party with my wife at Swagath. There were 28 in attendance. Everyone enjoyed their dinner. Each person ordered off the menu. The Butter Chicken was excellent. The Tandoori Chicken was also very well received. A very good Indian restaurant that I will be back to again.

The seating is a bit cramped. The owner needs to get more variety and fresh food. Often it seems the food is stale or just reheated cream dish and oil. Also beware when you do booking the adjacent banquet hall for special events. They always tack on extra charges from the price they quoted you for the event. Watch your... More

I have been going to Swagath since May 2013. There food gets better everytime I visit. I usually go alone but honestly, it's not even awkward. The owners are really nice and always make me feel welcome. I can't wait until I go and I always look forward to going!! They are sometimes open from 12p-9p (all day buffet) for... More

I work for a restaurant delivery service and a lot of deliveries come out of Swagath. So I tried it! I couldn't believe how fantastic it was. I had the Butter Chicken which wouldn't be something I would normally choose. At their suggestion I tried the bread with nuts and berries and combination with the Butter Chicken was so delicious!!...

Outstanding. Brilliant. Sublime. Perfect. What more is there to say?Performance art. Every dish was a surprise for the senses, not just a fabulous taste.This restaurant is simply the most idyllic dining out experience you can have. I wish this place could be cloned and every city would have something like it. Absolutely the very best restaurant -- ever!!!!

Just visited for the first time, and to be fair, if you come to a buffet 10 minutes before it's ending, food may be a bit dry or picked over. When we were dishing up, the owner did come up and ask if there was anything we needed. One of the stews had most of the meat and vegetables missing... More

What a pleasant, bright, and clean restaurant! I had become accustomed to Sindu, which is the opposite. I have been to Swagath several times for their lunch buffet. I am not qualified to judge the fine details of Indian food, but I thought the butter-curry chicken and tandoori chicken were outstanding! I experienced so many new and wonderful tastes here,...

I visit Swagath at least 2-3 times per month for lunch and have been going there for a few years now. Their lunch buffet is perfect for my one hour lunch break, and the food is always fresh and delicious. I love their palak paneer and chicken 65. I've been there for dinner and have ordered dinner to-go as well,... More
