The lunch buffet is also very affordable. They are also participants of the Hooked app, so you can... read more

This place lives up to its TripAdvisor ranking. The service (family?) is a little slow but lovely and personable. The menu is astonishingly broad but the kitchen is more than capable. Yum. Word to the wise for those who enjoy beer or wine: BYO. Luckily there's a bottle shop 5 minutes' walk away.

Service was a little slow, but the food was delicious! The cut mirchi was made with what looked like a Hungarian pepper, so it wasn't as spicy as the serranos I am used to in my cut mirchi. However, it was amazing! I really enjoyed them. Got a couple of enjoyable vegetarian dishes that we enjoyed. Cannot wait to go... More

Fantastic South Indian. I particularly like the Masla Dosa and Sambar. For a bread try the Peshwari naan. The buffet has a great selection and is kept fresh. Only downside is I wish that they had more vegetable side dishes.

Absolutely love the flavors of Indian food and the different offerings at various restaurants. This was a good find. The host was very pleasant and the host's child offered a toy for our toddler to play with. Buffets are often a weekday-only offering. It was a nice surprise to find one available on a Saturday. There was a generous variety... More

A lot of people know about Swagaths amazing buffet. The restaurant kills it most lunches but the place is usually pretty dead around dinner. I just went in for dinner tonight and looked over the menu in its entirety. Swagsth offers several specialties from all over India. I brached out and tried Malabar fish curry. It was amazing! I also... More
