I lived in India and Golden Swan might still be the best Indian food I've ever had. When we we pass through Falmouth we eat here, and usually get enough to invite siblings and in-laws over for a family meal. Try the dal soup, pekoras, mango lassi, and aloo gobi...although it's all really good. Karam gives great service too!

First time dining at the Golden Swan Restaurant in Falmouth, in fact, we haven't been to Falmouth in several years so it made a nice change for my husband and I. It had rained all day, and we felt in the need for some comfort food ... The Golden Swan fit the bill perfectly. We were the only people in... More

We dined at the Golden Swan on a busy Sunday night. When we came in the place wasn't terribly full... but something didn't seem quite right. Nobody seated was eating, and some tables looked like people had been there and left. But we were seated, a busboy quickly prepped a table, poured us water, and then we waited. And waited......

It was my first time eating Indian food in a restaurant. I've always eaten take out Indian and only stuff that friends had ordered. This place is in a great location and the staff are so friendly and helpful. Because it was our first time eating here we wanted to try a bit of everything so we ordered the Meat... More

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
