I came for the weekday lunch buffet and was hoping for an outstanding meal. Unfortunately it was just OK. The buffet had a pretty large range of foods and it was kept stocked. But the food wasn't particularly warm and could have been a lot spicier for my taste. The fried okra and chicken korma were the best of the... More

We came here for lunch buffet after hearing so many positive reviews with higher expectations. But disappointed with selection of items for buffet and cooking style of dishes (a few north Indian cuisines were cooked in south Indian style thereby losing the authenticity of those cuisines). Apart from that, i loved everything like service, taste of food and ambiance. Puri... More

Good selection of food on the buffet. I wasn't truly impressed since most items were just average. The waitstaff was extremely attentive and we got seated right away. The inside was a little run down and could use a through cleaning. My wife said that the bathroom was on the dirty side. The men's bathroom was OK for me.

When you read the reviews, you need to consider where people come from. I'm an East Coast transplant. Native Michiganders have not experienced NYC and Boston Indian cuisine. If you have, this place is definitely fine, not great. The veggie dishes were far superior to the meat dishes (at the lunch buffet). No appetizer-like foods (poppodams, samosas) are on the... More

I moved the Lansing about a year and a half ago and this place has been my weekly go to. Swagath has never failed to satisfy my Indian craving. The food is always so delicious! Would definitely recommend to my friends and family!

This is only indian restaurent we visit in lansing. It's the starters that makes us visit them again and again. Biryani is nice here, like the spice level they maintain here. I bring my cousins or guests at my home here if we plan to eat outside.

Indian food is my favorite food. Swagath definitely has its merits but it's not the best place for this type of cuisine. The reason I do go back is because of the staff. Everyone there is always very friendly. They turn up the spice level when asked which is more to say than many other Indian places. Great place to... More

I've been to this restaurant several times with friends and family and even used their services for catering for my wedding - so my review comes with a depth of experience. So here goes! The lunch buffet is great value for money - the tandoori chicken is quite good though I wish the dishes were a kept at a higher... More
