It took a while, but when the food came, it was awesome and well worth the wait! My husband and I are from the Washington, D.C. area, which has a multitude of ethnic restaurant choices. We're now living in southeast Michigan and our restaurant choices are very limited (mostly chains, ugh). We miss the ethnic foods from D.C. We were... More

Delicious Indian food. Swagath's special all day buffets (usually on occasions like Memorial/Independence Day) are truly exceptional. They have a wide range of vegetarian and non-vegetarian food and the $11 special buffets are worth every penny.The staff is kind, courteous and friendly. Definitely worth a visit.

We enjoyed our dinner but I wouldn't say it was the best Indian Food we've ever had...Service wasn't exactly with a Smile but it was efficient. Butter Chicken was good, Samosa Chaat was tasty...tandoori clay-pot chicken just so-so.

We are not purveyors of fine Indian food but the folks at Swagath took the time to educate us on the various options. One of their recommendations was to utilize the lunch buffet to try the various options to better determine what you liked...great suggestion!! The food was very good with a lot of flavor. We are wimpy in terms... More

This place is ranked #1 for East Lansing restaurants, so when we showed up on a Saturday for lunch, I was expecting to be blown away. First of all let me say that the people working here are super friendly and nice. I'm not a connoisseur of Indian food so my compliments go to the waitress and the hostess whom... More

We ordered a take away. The staff were courteous and patient . The packing was very good and they provided disposable plates and cutlery. The quality and quantity of the food was remarkable. Will recommend for travellers missing Indian cuisine .

Great food, friendly staff. I eat there often . Especially enjoy the lunch buffet, as I get to try a variety of foods. I get to have my favorites as well as new items on the buffet most times I go.

Great food, great atmosphere, very friendly staff, and fantastic service. A cut above the competition. My wife and I had the chicken saag and curry. Both were delicious and the naan was fantastic.

I saw their sign on the highway and decided to stop in for lunch. It was a Saturday and they were doing a buffet. The selection was very good and the food was all excellent. There were at least 4 meat selections and quite a few vegetable selections. I have had Indian food before on many occasions and this was... More
