The road name is Lovejoy. The restaurant is just at the corner. I had one of my best vegetarian food in Portland. The food is well made and very safe for dedicated vegetarian. The price is very reasonable. You can try little bit each at first then choose you like most there. The staffs are very friendly too. You have... More

Its the same typical Indian foods. Food was tasty but bit expensive and was prepared within 15 minutes. There is not enough parking space available.

Excellent lunch buffet, probably best Indian meals I have ever had in USA. The buffet is best experienced on Friday-Sunday. Small parking lot, in downtown, so drive around if you cannot find parking. They have branches, but not as good. I would park somewhere between here and Powell bookstore, bring quarters though to feed the meters. About 1.1 miles from... More

I have been a fan of Swagat for many years. Sadly, we moved far away from Portland and I am only able to dine here when i am visiting the Rose City. Last night we enjoyed a meal at Swagat in NW Portland. Every aspect was utterly delightful. The hostess, recognizing that we might like a more private space, seated... More

After driving all around the neighborhood, I really appreciated that Swagat had its own parking lot. Portions were generous, service was friendly, food was very good. The Thali plate was huge - couldn't possibly eat it all - would be good to share. We had 2 small children and they put us way in the back corner in kind of... More

The lunch buffet is consistently good for an Indian cuisine fix at lunch. Price is reasonable for what you get.

I have gone to the location in Hillsboro but recently moved downtown so I decided to give this location a try. Totally disappointed with the experience overall. First, I was seated by the hostess and left unattended for about 10 minutes. The hostess showed up and said she was the waitress. Then, as I ordered my food, she indicated that... More

Swagat offers a tasty and filling buffet lunch. I haven't been there for dinner. It's not my favorite Indian restaurant in town, but I think it's a great value and the food and variety are nice and I would not hesitate to recommend eating a meal here.

Very tasty food! The Mango lassi and the bhendi masala did not disappoint. The wait staff was very attentive. If you are staying in the downtown area you can get to the restaurant using the light rail (get off on NW Lovejoy and 21st).
