“Simply good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

This may not be gourmet Indian but it is tasty and a great break, both in flavor and in atmosphere from the other restaurants on the Cape. The servers seem bored - not a lot of smiling (looks like a family business so I understand) but are attentive and quick. On a hot summer day, step in for a lunch special for a break from the sun. You will love the cool, dark atmosphere and the strong, spicy aromas that first hit you.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

Don't let the lack of people inside the restaurant fool you - I think many folks get take out here. Having tried Indian food in many many place (but not india I must admit) and it being probably my favorite type of Asian food - this place is excellent and was so happy to find it! There are only 3 spicy levels and medium seems to do the trick, I think I would be afraid to go up to the highest level. Every dish we have tried from here has exceeded our expectations and is very flavorful and rich. I have never eaten in the restaurant but it looks quite cozy and the family who runs the restaurant seems very nice. If you like Indian, this place is definitely worth a try!

“Addictively good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

The Indian food at the Golden Swan is seriously good. Every time I try a new dish, it becomes my new favorite. I especially like the vegetarian dishes. The staff is excellent.

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2011

It was a real joy to have my first Indian meal since moving to The Cape. Assaulted with an incredible aroma upon arrival...... the meal was even better than I hoped. Apps were crisp and clean, flavorful and not overly fried as can sometimes happen.
Entrees were superb. Flavorful, hot, spiced as requested and a delight.
Looking forward to a second trip here soon!
