We arranged our small-scale family wedding in Milford, and as we live well out-of-state were forced to use only internet reviews to pick a place to provide the food. The reviews of Swagat tempted us, and we were not disappointed. Not only did the owner...More

We have been to a lot of Indian restaurants in Connecticut (and Boston, and New York) but can't remember ever having traditional Indian food as well-prepared as this. Many places around Connecticut are bland and terribly safe; Swagat is for hard-core lovers of spice. Not...More
