Excellent Indian food with lots of variety including doshas early in the week. Not too oily. Naan is excellent.

A group of us eat there 2-3 times a week and we love the diversity, from the bitter melon to the goat dishes...

Indian cuisine is one of my favorites and am so glad we have Swagath in East Lansing. Every dish I have tried has had a great blend of flavors. A cold snowy evening with a spicy dish and garlic naan ......mmmmmmmm. Dianne H

Swagath has some of the best Indian food I've eaten in the United States. Having eaten at all of the premier restaurants in South East Michigan, I was very surprised and taken back when I found Swagath to taste as well as it did. Their tandoor style cooking really separates them from everyone else. Of course they still make all... More

It has been sometime that I had been to Swagath. A dear friend treated me to lunch on Friday, 1-3-2012. First time for me to experience the buffet. All food preparations were nicely displayed, fresh and maintained. They also have added new curtains to give more of a feel perhaps East Indian style. I just read the last review with... More

Excellent lunch buffet. I have been there at least 4 times and it gets better each time. They do a wonderful job of varying the selections and quality is always great. Staff is also welcoming and will provide good tips on how to mix the different options!!

The company that I work for often orders catering from Swagath for evening get-togethers. It's not the best Indian food I've ever had, but it's still pretty delicious. I've been to the buffet at the actual restaurant once before, and the food wasn't nearly as good. Service was so-so, and the place seemed really crammed. I wouldn't eat here again... More
