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

Went to this restaurant for dinner and ordered Onion rava masala dosa. It was superb and the red chutney was amazing. Price was normal like any other Indian restaurant. My friends ordered chicken dishes and felt it was not so good / tasty. Parsis indian Grill gives better chicken dishes than Swagath

Enjoyed the lunch buffet. Don't know how it ranks against the other Indian buffets in the area, as I have not tried them.

Swagath has consistently competent Indian food. The inside of this restaurant is quite plain and is somewhat dated, but is relatively clean and pleasant. The food is good, though perhaps a bit dated because they stick to the standard dishes/recipes that patrons love. No part of the cuisine really shines, nor does it give any reason for disappointment. Service is... More

Great place for chai masala and an Indian buffet on a Sunday noon. Excellent food with lots of choices. Decor is palin but then again its a buffet. Prices very reasonable and the service is very good.

I've been looking for a decent curry house in the Lansing area since I moved here from the UK where Indian restaurants aren't so thin on the ground. Having tried Sindhu and Persis, I was looking forward to my visit to Swagath but was prepared to be disappointed. From the moment we stepped in, the wonderful smells reminded me of... More
