“Amazing Curry in J'burgh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Went with some friends as I was missing my curry fix, Ordered several vegetarian dishes for myself Aloo Gobi Matter, Paneer Makhani, whereas my friends sampled the chicken dishes.

Can safety say that the meal was enjoyable, so much that all the left-overs were packed to have as take-away. Nan's were crisp, fresh, and well seasoned. All dishes were created to suit all the diners palettes which made the whole experience even more enjoyable.

Will return in the near future.

“Best Indian Food in Joburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

The food is absolutely amazing.
We have stopped ordering from the menu as we realised everything is Delicious, so now the Manager orders for us.
The service as well is outstanding :)
My husband and I sometimes go alone and sometimes with big groups of friends - and it is always amazing
I would highly recommend it,
Laura & Stephan

“Great Indian cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Perfect location, close to undercover parking and piazza. Good food and service. The 'Royals' evening on Valentane's day is definitely a must!

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Soup was very salty and over spiced, fish curry was far too rich. A number of wines on the list were unavailable. The restaurant lacked ambiance and was cold. Service was good however.

“Quality Indian cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Swad is a somewhat up-market Indian restaurant within (and outside) the large mall at Melrose Arch. The food is very good, and the ambience is very nice. We chose to eat outside which was very pleasant, and the food was excellent. Starters (including the free pakora), main course, rice and curries were all first rate. I’d definitely go back there…
