I am Indian and have been to dozens of Indian restaurants all over the country, expensive and cheap. This place is the gold standard. The modest surroundings belie the spiciest, freshest, most melt-in your mouth Indian food around! Try the idli and the thali--major bargains. The only thing I don't like there is the raita, which I think is too sweet. I guess some people like it that way.
While I also like Tarka, Bombay Bistro, Asiana, and other Austin desi joints, I always go back to Swad for the best food.
