Swagath has a nice buffet. The Mango Lassi is wonderful but the best thing are the huge Dosa that they make. They don't put them on the menue so you have to order them alacarte, one is good to feed two people. If you get it with the stuffing, they put nuts in there, so just be careful if you... More

Indian food is my favorite, and the Swagath is of such quality that it has received repeat business from my family. On my birthday, I often choose to eat here. The menu is varied, the wait staff friendly. The atmosphere isn't great, but it isn't bad either, just kind of mediocre. Their lassis are great, with fresh ingredients, which isn't... More

Swagath is a friendly, accommodating buffet restaurant. Swagath serves a variety of Indian dishes at their buffet or you may order off the menu. They can accommodate large crowds in their ample dining room and additional dining area toward the back of the restaurant. My family and I love Indian spices and find the meals here good. It is not... More

I think they should get rid of Tandoori Chicken from there Menu, it was just horrible. There was no taste and no spices to the Chicken and it seemed like that I paid for the bones. I wish I could take a picture of the bones and post it, but that will be further disgusting. There South Indian food was... More

We always love eating at Swagath. The food is high quality and flavorful -- my favorite is the dosa -- they are huge and so good, all their lamb dishes are great, my kids love all the paneer dishes, and my favorite veg entree is the bindhi (okra). The owner, waitress, and other workers go out of their way to... More

This place can be hit or miss. You don't want to arrive just before they close the lunch buffet, because they may not restock the trays. Limited options for Indian in the Lansing/East Lansing area, and this is one of the better places for Indian. It's a bit of a hole-in-the-wall kinda place. Overall the staff are friendly, service is... More

The food is very delicious, I personally loved the chicken biryani, chicken tikka masala and goat curry. Loved the ambiance and the music is really refreshing. My family and I always got back for the tasty, freshness good food. You will stuffed but satisfied! Try to make room for the deserts, oh so good.

Tried this while catching up with a friend recently. We ate somewhat early, maybe 530-6 on a week night and were the only people there until our check arrived. The restaurant was clean and attractively decorated. The two of us were seated in the large back room, at a table for five. It felt weird, but that's nothing I'd complain... More

I've been here for the first time with my friends for the special buffet and i was awestruck by the variety of Indian food they had offered.. Each dish is one of it's kind, I personally loved the Chicken tikka masala and Goat curry. Desserts were scrumptious. The staff were very attentive. The ambiance is lively with good Bollywood music.... More

The best Indian restaurant in the country.It reminded me about my home town the TEA and Madras Coffee was excellent, and the chicken biryani was ultimate. I wish they had this type off restaurant in NEW YORK or NEW JERSEY
