SWAD
Cuisines: Indian
Description: This is quite a new, small family run rooftop restaurant which takes great pride in the preparation of its food. The menu is indo chinese rather than straight Indian. The restaurant deserves a trip advisor entry for several reasons: 1 the quality and variety of the food 2 the friendliness and helpfulness of the owner 3 really good quality with fair prices are not easy to find in Port Blair 4 although quite basic in style, the rooftop setting is an unusual if not unique attraction in Port Blair. I would recommend at least one visit to anyone with a night or 2 to spend in Port Balir

I found this excellent place quite by chance during an overnight stay coming from Havelock. It is just down the Maulana Azzad Road from the TSG EMERALD VIEW Hotel where I stayed - on the same side. It is run by a very enthusiastic and interesting guy who is passionate about the quality of his food. The rooftop restaurant is basic but don't be put off - the food was really tasty, fresh and hot. - probably tthe best meal I had during my stay in the Andamans and certainly the best value. There is a considerable a la carte menu to choose from, I chose a couple of differnet curry dishes and while waiting had a good long chat abou how to produce the best biriyani, which is the house special. In my experience places like this are few and far between. Strongly recommend seeking it out (look for a sign on the main road pointing up some back stairs to the rooftop). Take an autorickshaw from town and ask the driver to look out for the sign. If you get to the TSG Emerald you've gone about 150yds or so too far.
