What a great find! In this crowded town where most eateries refuse to take reservations and are packed, the Golden Swan accepts reservations, not that you always need them. And the food was outstanding. As a vegetarian who loves Indian food, this was among the best I've had. The okra, the chickpeas, the eggplant, all were prepared extremely well. The... More

Food was yummy, portions were good size and it is a nice change from standard Cape fare. Service was slow and restrooms needed attention.

Indian food can be taking a chance without knowing much about it. We love Indian food so took the chance while in Falmouth and were not disappointment. We made a shrimp special made spicy at our request. It was delicious. We ordered a mixed grill Tandoori style and that, while not the best ever, was quite satisfactory. They made an... More

We found this Indian restaurant at the end of the main Street in Falmouth . It was pretty empty both nights we walked past , which is a mistake . It was the most enjoyable meal we enjoyed in Falmouth - the food quantities were just right , not the huge overwhelming portions served elsewhere , 2 entrees still served... More

I love my Indian food and, over the years, I've become fussier than most. So it was with some trepidation that I tried Indian food in New England (not a natural match, I thought). But the biryani I had at the Golden Swan was quite excellent, I loved it. Decent surroundings and service too.

This was my husband's first experience with Indian food and his comment was "how have I missed out on this?!" We met up with a friend while visiting Falmouth who suggested the restaurant. Everything was so flavorful and you customize how spicy you want your food to be. The server was accommodating and very helpful. A must stop for great... More

Truly excellent food. Definitely recommended to anyone visiting the area. The peshwari naan was particularly great.

There were four of us for a birthday dinner. We had vegetable pakora and the non vegetarian platter for appetizers. Both were excellent. The onion chutney served with the pakora was very flavorful with a nice medium plus heat. Two of us ordered lamb vindaloo for entrees with medium plus heat. Unfortunately, they both came to the table with no... More

It was such a relief when this place opened - I had to go to Boston for decent naan before that! I've only had vegetarian entrees (channa masala and dal makhani) but my friends were very happy with the meat dishes also. Excellent veggie samosas! Staff are always pleasant and service quick. Another reviewer complained that the decor needs updating,... More
